Road to Perserverance

If at first you don't succeed... (Problem and Solution)

This text is a great example of perseverance. In the text it talks about how Maxcy Filer gets rejected by people. In the text it says "Twenty people in the past hour have listened to your sales pitch and hung up the phone. Five banks in a row have rejected your application for a small business loan." It states that the first time Maxcy Filer took the California bar exam in 1966 he did not pass at the age of thirty-six years old. Maxcy was unsatisfied with the fact that he didn't pass the test so he continued to take the exam. He took the exam in Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside, San Francisco, and anywhere that offered the exam in California. After twenty-five years, $50,000 in fees for exams and countless review courses, Maxcy had finally passed the bar exam in 1991 at the age of sixty-one.
