IN THIS ISSUE:
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

Article: Never Give Up
A quote I really like goes like this, “More powerful than the will to win is the courage to begin.” Unfortunately I can’t tell you who said this but whoever it was knew something about courage and perseverance. There is another popular story going around the Internet right now that asks a very tutorial question. The story, or question, goes like this:
There once was a man in our recent history who had tremendous challenges and adversity in his life. From the description below, can you guess who this person is?
He failed in business.
He was defeated for state legislator.
He tried another business. It failed.
His fiancée died.
He had a nervous breakdown.
He ran for Congress and was defeated.
He tried again and was defeated again.
He tried running for the Senate. He lost.
The next year he ran for Vice President and lost.
He ran for the Senate again and was defeated.
And then the man, who signed his name A. Lincoln,
was elected as the 16th President of the United States.
Abraham Lincoln obviously did not allow defeat to become permanent. He not only knew how to start but how not to quit. The legendary football coach, Vince Lombardi, is given credit for saying, “The difference between winning and losing is quitting!”
We are living in times that can cause even the strongest at times to think about giving up. We can become trapped in our limited choices and fail to see opportunities that surround us. Indeed, in my book, “Choices and Illusions,” a good deal of ink is dedicated to teaching how to think out of the proverbial box. The bottom line is this, you truly can parlay setbacks into great opportunities if you remember not to quit.
Here’s to your best and thanks for the read,
P.S. Here is a link that contains some truly wonderful additional incentives when you get a copy of Choices and Illusions, if you don’t already have a copy:
On the Humorous Side
When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.
