Thought for the day


When you stop trying your chances for success drop off considerably.




I read this on a blog once and I like to repeat it to myself when I'm tempted to give up.

  1. A very sound observation! And please, don't give up. I repeat, don't give up.

  2. I should say they drop off completely! if you quit. Which is why quitting is the only true failure. Keep going! The journey is what counts, anyway.

  3. Absolutely. Not trying is like sitting in a car and expecting to get to your destination without turning on the ignition.

  7. I have a similar one I keep in mind, something to the effect that receiving a rejection means I tried. The alternative is never try, never get a no, never know
