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.
How are you doing on your 1% Change? Are you pressing on even when you feel like quitting?
I memorized this quote during my high school basketball season. It EnCoUrAgEs me to this day – reminding me not to quit.
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you WaNt To SmiLe, but you 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 every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he StUcK It OuT;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you MuSt NoT QuiT.
