My favourite Monday morning reminder, when i feel like giving up is this wonderful poem. It definitely gets me charged up for the days & week ahead.
“When Things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to Smile but have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out,
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You might succeed with another blow.
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might captured the victor’s cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown,
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.”
~Edgar A. Guest
Its amazing how far you will get by just staying with something long enough.
Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.
“Pain is temporary, Quitting lasts forever.”
Most people give up too early. Their fears are bigger than their faith. Don’t complicate things. Getting to your best in life is simple. Not easy but simple. It just takes focus and effort.
Don’t quit, persist & stay blessed forever.
