3 days ago
In today’s episode of The Startup Chat, Steli and Hiten talk about persistence and how it can benefit your life. They introduce us to a persistence technique called HUCA, which is simple, free and can work wonders for you if you follow it. “You can’t beat the person who never gives up”. Persistence in work and life is one of the most important characteristics to have because persistence can open doors when it appears that there are no more doors to open. Persistence is the ability to continue trying to achieve something even when faced with resistance from other people or circumstances. The art, of not taking no for an answer is the key to breaking through to a world of possibilities. Not just to get what you want but also to train your mind to find the way to creatively solve challenges, when it appears to everyone else that there is no hope. Tune into this week’s episode of The Startup Chat to learn about what is possible when you apply and activate persistence techniques into your life. As well as Steli and Hiten’s top tips for how to get started.
