Explicó que gran parte del éxito han sido sus cinco fracasos anteriores. Me ha recordaddo lo que decía Plutarco de Diógenes que se puso a pedir limosna a una estatua de mármol. Naturalmente no obtuvo una sola moneda pero él continuaba pidiendo. "¿No es tiempo perdido?", alguien le preguntó. "No es tiempo perdido -, respondió -; ¡estoy habituándome a recibir rechazos!". La anécdota la recoge "Ilustrísimos Señores" un libro genial de Albino Luciani, que acabó siendo el Papa de los 33 días, Juan Pablo I.
IN ENGLISH. If you want to succeed, you should get used to failure. Last week in Granada a young American businessman, John Kozubik, who has triumphed with a business on the Internet explained in a conference the success of his business. It's a simple idea. It has a very sober web. His company offers technical solutions for data archiving and documentation to thousands of customers around the world. In his speech gave three councils to the university students: 1. To seize the advantage that we all have in any item on the other. 2. To be sober in investments that do after the initial successes. 3. To do and not to theorize, study or try to anticipate all possible situations: Just do it.
He explained that much of the success has been its five previous failures. I remembered story explained by Plutarch, about Diogenes. He was begging to a marble statue. Of course not won a single currency but he continued asking. "Is it not time wasted?" Someone asked. "It is not wasted time - responded -; I'm accustomed to receiving rejections." The story reflects in a the "Illustrissimi" (original title in italiano) a great book of Albino Luciani, that was later Pope John Paul I during 33 days.
