Never give up

Thursday, August 13, 2009 ·

Whenever we're in business for ourselves, we face challenges. The buck stops with us. We either get it done, or delegate to someone who will do it, if we're lucky enough to have such a someone. Our limitations loom in our face, and we either climb over them, or they sit there and hover, like relatives clucking over our inadequacies, again and again and again.

It's a double-edged sword. We can create whatever we envision. We can develop the lifestyle of our dreams, supported by the business of our dreams. But we're the ones who have to create it, and that takes time, imagination, enthusiasm, and above all, perseverance.

There are only winners and. . . . . learners. Just because you haven't yet won, doesn't mean you've lost. It only means that you haven't figured it out yet. You're still learning. Others can give you tips and observations, but just like learning to walk, ride a bike, canoeing down rapids, or spiking a volleyball, you have to actually practice doing it yourself, until you get that aha moment. Then you build on the aha until it becomes richer and stronger and deeper.

The only time you lose, is if you give up. So never give up. Never give up. Never give up. Pick yourself up and keep learning, keep trying. Never give up. Never give up.

Love it~ "Never Give Up" boy this can be applied to so many things in ones life. In fact, your entire post can be applied to life in general. Great post!
I read an interesting sign on a church near my house the other morning, it said "Practice make Perfect, Be careful what you practice." OH SO TRUE. We are told practice makes perfect from kids my boys' age, yet, this can be a good thing or a negative thing, depending on what you are practicing. If your inner dialog is saying "no you can't", "you are not good enough" or "you will fail", these things begin to permeate our thought process in ways we can not imagine. On the Flip Side, if you inner dialog is positive, even if it is just a mantra you practice saying, it too will Begin TO BE.
You hit it spot on.
Thanks, keep it up!
