If there is one characteristic that entrepreneurs need to possess and nurture more than any other, it is the ability to persevere in difficult circumstances, and ultimately triumph over adversity. Adversity comes in many different guises; it can be physical, such as that faced by those with disabilities. It can be cultural, such as the discrimination faced by someone who is a member of an out-group. It can even be mental, imposed by the individual themselves.
One great example of someone who overcame adversity and built themselves into one of the most successful individuals of all time is writer J.K. Rowling, famous for her Harry Potter series. Many people are not aware that prior to achieving her success, Rowling struggled with depression and single parenthood and even contemplated suicide at one time.
However, she was able to persevere through and eventually write what would become the best-selling book series of all time. How was she able to do this?
In short, she was able to find the motivation to overcome adversity through the power of her love for her child. She found that her dedication to her child gave her the energy to keep moving forward no matter what her circumstances were.
J.K. Rowling is a great example of someone who found their own personal motivation that enabled them to overcome adversity.
