Today's featured guest is Dr. Clarence M. Lee Jr.
Dr. Lee is a nationally celebrated author, international speaker, and CEO of CMLEEJR Companies LLC, a personal development brand that conducts seminars on high performance and mental conditioning for teams, organizations and students.
In today's conversation, we discussed some of the top excuses that make people quit, and Dr Lee shares what we must begin to do to create a mindset to persist.
It took me 5 years to get into medical school. I applied to medical school over 500 times.
Persistence is the absolute number one key for success. If I did not teach myself how to keep going when things were not going well. If I did not figure out how to do that, I would have folded a long, long time ago. Everything I have been able to do has been based on the simple principle of not giving up.
