Winston Churchill quoted "NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!!!"

I use that philosophy ALL the time. It's so important! The winner in Life is the person that NEVER Gives up. Think about it....THere are numerous sport stars, like Babe Ruth, that had the record in STIKE OUTS...AND Homeruns. Michael Jordon, his High School basketball coach didn't think he'd ever account to anything!? The list can go on and on.

Many successful people get there, because they NEVER GIVE up, and always keep trying. Everytime I might even have the slightest thought of giving up....I keep thinking, it might be JUST around the corner...don't give up!

When you have the mentality that I will FIND a Way, or MAKE a way, and there is no other choice, but to succeed....that's when you WIN. You can't have the thought that you can stop at anytime, if the going gets tough. You know the saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going!"

Then on the other hand, you can't keep doing what you're doing and expect different maybe you need to evaluate the situtation and think outside the box to SUCCEED!! Think of the fly that dies on the window sill....he was buzzing around, trying despertly to fly outside, and couldn't find an opening anywhere on the window, trying every corner, top and bottom. No matter how HARD he tried, he can't fly break thru the window to the outside, and dies .......HOWEVER, if he would have flown across the room, he would have found another window open, where he could have easily flown outside! 

GO Thru the obstacles, around, over, under....however you can, to GET TO YOUR GOAL!! Remember, if it was easy....EVERYONE would do it!!

I agree giving up is never an option.  However quitting can be an option if something better is presented to you.  My daughter, the Gardener, is a classic example of the meaning of this.  A few years ago she got the urge to make her yard the most beautiful one in her neighborhood.  She went all out growing seedlings in her greenhouse, dividing her plants, etc.  But faced with the daunting task next spring, she made a startling decision.  No more gardening.  Nice yard, but the yard took control of her life. (sort of like real estate has taken mine).  For her this was a decision make purposely for herself.   I believe, if we are struggling in a career, or any life struggle, if you can analyze your situation and then go forward with wisdom and strength.

So true,

The minute you give up the under toe will just drag you under. Swim away and around until you can safely get to shore. Do not panic. Stay focused. and

Enjoy the day

I agree Jeannette.  I'm a dog with a bone.  The only time it doesn't work for me... is when I want it more than my clients do!
