woman sadA lot of the times, the difference between failure and success is determination and ability not to give. What if Thomas Edison gave up? We probably wouldn’t have had light bulb today; he failed a thousand times before getting it right. Bill gates failed in his first business, but year after year he remains one of the richest men in the world. Even Jay Z, one of the richest rappers in the world, couldn’t get a record label to sign him in the beginning and now he’s the CEO of one of the most successful record labels in the music world.

If these aforementioned people had given up, they would never have achieved this level of success. This is proof that determination pays.
