I always believe that the difference between a winner and a looser is that the winner is the one who just keeps going.
Like everything else in your life its a choice do you keep going or do you give up??
Look at the alternatives if you give up you have to start something else right from the beginning again whereas if you keep going you will get there in the end!!!
Seems a no brainier but it takes courage, resilience, fortitude and true grit to keep going when it seems much easier to give up!!
Here is a poem which puts it all into context entitled Don’t Quit from page 49 of the book, by Clinton Howell:
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low, and the debts are high,
and when you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twist and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
and you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst,
that you must not quit.
Whenever you face any challenges in life, always keep this poem in mind 🙂
