Introduction to perseverance
“A failure is not always a mistake. It may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.”-B.F Skinner. I define perseverance as never letting adversity beat you. Like Tom Monoghan did. He went through many lowpoints in his pizza business; but never gave up and look where he is now.

Tom Monoghan is the owner of Dominos. Here is his story. Tom went through multiple bankruptcies with several different financial partners. Though when all this happened, he stuck with his franchise which nobody thought would be a success. His original business partner/friend did not did not believe in his idea after things started to go bad, he left tom which resulted in bankruptcies. Now Tom has thousands of domino's across the US and is making good money. I think that tom inspires others by overcoming multiple adversities in his life.
