Success, Failure, Follow Your Dream

Audio / Produced by The High Calling


Poor Milton. He opened a business, and it failed. Did he quit? No, he headed west, continuing to learn his trade. When he had sufficient new working knowledge, he moved again: to New York City. And he opened another business, and it failed.

So he returned home to Pennsylvania and opened another business. This time: success! His caramel candy business grew and thrived. But Milton didn’t stop there either. After extensive research, he developed a unique recipe for the product of his dreams—milk chocolate.

This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. Milton Hershey had a dream. And neither failure—repeated failure—nor moderate success could get him off track. Today, I wish you dreams AND dogged determination . . . in the high calling of our daily work.
