Chop his head off and hide it

My mother said she knew a man who was so tough (maybe resilient was the term) that in order to kill him, you would have to chop his head off and hide it.

Most successful entrepreneurs are like that.

They don't know that they are "legally dead." No vital signs? No problem.

My client in Phoenix saw his bills continue but his business screech to a dead stop in the "Great Recession." What did he do? Negotiated a deal to buy another company (basically with no money) that allowed him to survive and, as of now, thrive.

Most successful entrepreneurs have such doggedness that they won't admit defeat. They make more than one "90-degree turn" during their careers.

Not all of us have that talent, or that determination.
