Don’t Give Up on the One Yard line

Reblogger Kathy Streib

All of Lou's posts inspire and motivate. This one does as well, and because it reminds me of football, it speaks clearly to me. 


Too often I see a player, football in hand, heading to the goal line only to lose focus and fumble the ball just before crossing that line. 


Head over to Lou's post to leave your comment, and if you aren't following his blog, now's a good time to do so.

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





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.

Kathy, you are so right all of Lou's posts are extremely motivational.... on  a side note I have not watched Football since MV dog fighting days... and now I hear that he is on Fox Sports as a talking head that will keep me on the sidelines longer...Endre

Good morning Kathy.

I have not read any of Lou's posts that I found not inspiring.  I like how he takes a statement or quote, breaks it down for us to enjoy

You know, Kathy, some people would find this difficult to believe but sometimes I lose a listing appointment, LOL. For any number of reasons, mostly stupidity or ignorance the way I view it. But I politely let the sellers know that if they encounter difficulties or trouble down the road, they can always call me back. I never give up. 

And quite often they do.
