Soichiro Honda

Soichiro Honda, 1906-1991, founded the Honda Motor Company in 1948. Before that he spent 6 years working as a car mechanic, learning the trade, and then 20 years running his own auto repair business.

Honda turned his company into a billion-dollar multinational that produced the best-selling motorcycles in the world, even out-selling Triumph and Harley-Davidson in their respective home markets.

a quote from Honda …

Success can be achieved only through repeated failure and introspection. In fact, success represents 1 per cent of your work which results only from the 99 per cent that is called failure.
