“I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.”
John D. Rockefeller
Our team here at Medix lives by a set of Core Values; one of them being, “Never, never, never give up.” We stand behind this value not only because our industry requires passion, dedication and hard work, but because individually, we all have experienced and will eventually face bumps in the road.
Whether you’re an intern, working hard to get hired on full-time or an executive who just watched your company initiative fail, perseverance will be needed at various points during your career. In fact, this will to prevail separates those who find success and those who will continue to struggle.
We recently heard a story about an individual who worked hard to earn her medical degree, but when she left school, she was faced with a challenging market that left her underemployed in a job that didn’t utilize any of her skills. After five years of never giving up, this individual was feeling defeated, but she kept going, thought of a new solution and contacted Medix. Our team found her the perfect opportunity, coached her and helped her land the medical job she fought so hard for!
There are days when never giving up is easier said than done. Regardless if your challenges occur in your personal life or career, throwing in the towel should never be an option.
