"There's only one way to succeed in anything,

and that is to give it everything. "

Football Coach, Vince Lombardi


Your action for today

is to think of a time

when you gave it your all

and didn't succeed.

And then you tried again and you did.

"Never Give Up, Never Surrender!" - Capt. Jason Nesmith

Happy Friday!!!


Design An Extraordinary Day!

That Vince Lombardi quote is a testament that he was more than just a guy to name a trophy after!🙂

Hi Thomas - I remember Winston Churchill's speech in which he repeated over and over again never give up.

I have come to the conclusion that my success or failure; all starts with me and I am in control of my destiny. I can not blame anyone and I will not be a victim. I have known this for a long time but it helps to put it into writing Thomas 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend my friend. 🙂

Sometimes it takes giving our full effort more than once to get the job done, persistency is good.

And that's why sports figures make great sales people!  In another life my former husband had many as stockbrokers in his office - Bam!  Great post!
