The ‘BURGER’ seller!

August 14, 2014

I wonder if he thought it would be as successful as it turned out.

The Invictus Soul


I just came across this vintage full-page McDonald’s ad that spoke of how Irving McDonald started with this teeny roadside stand selling burgers to passersby.
All his friends including his wife asked him to give up and go back to selling insurance. He trudged on regardless, convinced that one day, he’d become an American icon. His determination made him rich and famous:


“Nothing in the world can take place of PERSISTENCE.

TALENT won’t……
Nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent.

GENIUS won’t……
Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

EDUCATION alone won’t………
The world is full of educated derelicts.

PERSISTENCE & DETERMINATION alone are omnipotent.”

So, if there’s something you wish to accomplish, don’t let anybody – including yourself – talk you out of it.
And you won’t if your PERSISTENCE is as strong as your DESIRE.
