Don’t Give Up on the One Yard line

 “Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve

success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up

at the last minute of the game one foot a

winning touchdown.”

Ross Perot American Businessman and Former

Politician

 

 

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

Don’t give up on the one yard line

 

It’s never over until you win . . . . or someone gives up.

 

Focus on winning . . . . let others think about giving up.

 

When giving up is an option . . . . it becomes the easy way out of challenging conditions when your back is to the wall.

 

When you hit rough conditions on your success journey . . . . it’s not a time to give up. It’s a time to reach into your determination to succeed . . . .  and to keep going until you achieve your goal.

 

Don’t give up on the one yard line . . . . keep going until you get into the end zone.

Hi Lou... funny you should put it that way. So often I see agents doing something to generate business and because the response isn't quick enough for them they quit just before a payoff would begin.

Hi Lou Ludwig - Many throw the spaghetti against the wall to see what sticks and sometimes nothing sticks.  SO, at least throw some more spaghetti until something sticks (and again and again!!! LOL!

If you work hard enough to get to the one yard line, you might as well punch it into the end zone!

Happy Saturday, Lou. Thanks for the reminder to have patience. We live in an instant gratification world. The payoff often takes time. D

Hello Lou,  Reminds me of the miner that had a silver mine and the ore quit.  He gave up and sold the rights for $10,  some guy started digging to yards in a difference direction and found the main vain again and was rich.

Having a husband so invested in football and coaching it, I am filled to the brim with football motivators. I agree that giving up on the one yard line is no way to win

Lou- because I love all things football, this is an apt analogy. Too often I see players seem to slow down or lose their focus as they approach the goal.

Thanks for the motivation early this morning!  Sometimes it is hard to know where the one yard line is though in life! So instead, we just have to keep going because quitting is unacceptable in life.
