Give Up Or Fight Like Hell

 Give Up Or Fight Like Hell

“If children have the ability to ignore all odd and

percentages, then maybe we can all learn from

them. When you think about it, what others

choices is there but hope? We have two

options, medically and emotionally;

give up or fight like hell.”

Lance Armstrong, Cycling Champion  



As I see it. . . . . . .

Give up or fight like hell


When a child wants to learn how to ride a bike they go out . . . . and keep trying. They fall down . . . . they get up . . . . and get back on the bike . . . . They repeat that process until they learn how to ride a bike.


Children learn how . . . . to get up after they fall.


A child wasn’t studying the odds of successfully riding the bike before they get on the bike for the first time. They just knew that they wanted to ride the bike . . . . that they could ride the bike . . . . and they would ride the bike . . . . So they did.


As a child you lived in a world of possibilities . . . and hope. You need to reactivate your inner child of wonderment . . . . and your creativity. As you do your world becomes one of unlimited possibilities.  


See your possibilities . . . . and then go out there . . . . and fight like hell to achieve them.


What you can learn from children is that if they can imagine it they can find a way to achieve it.


In life when you want to learn how to ride a bike . . . . you have to get on the bike and try . . . . and keep trying until you learn how to ride to ride the bike.


In life you can give up or fight like hell to achieve what you want

It seems that children don't give up when they want something, they fight like hell until they get it.

Fortunately, giving up is not in my nature; I'll fight like hell when things are worth fighting for.

Lou- love this!  When I was a kid, I remember always telling myself that where there's a will, there's a way. We have to remember that as we get older.

This is so true... When children really want to do something, they just figure out how. Watch a child whose parent has told them "no, you can't do that." You can just see in their eyes that they are calculating all the ways they CAN do it. I just watched this myself a few weeks ago. I went to an Oktoberfest while on vacation, and I was watching a young boy who wanted to go all the way on the other side of the crowded tent to see someone in a costume (or something like that). Mom said no. That boy tried all sorts of ways to get there. Trying to convince her with words. Trying to sneak over. Trying to get dad to help. Trying to distract her. I actually lost track after a while but I'm betting he did figure out a way to get where he wanted to go.

I know people who don't even try for what they want anymore. That's sad.

I wish Lance would have fought like hell fairly but it is a way to achieve but not with performance enhancers.
