This Sunday I will be talking to some folks about overcoming adversity and marching on. It occurred to me that whilst preparing for this talk today I should perhaps share some of my thoughts on this matter with you guys hence here it goes……..How does the guy who quit on his dream know how long it would’ve taken him to become a success? He doesn’t! None of us do. It could be tomorrow, or ten years from now. What separates a lot of the great people we read about today from those we’ve never heard of is the fact that they never quit. Quitting was never an option. They only stopped when they reached their dream. And even then, they created a new mission. Take Maya Angelou or even Nelson Mandela, for example. They didn’t achieve their greatness or success early on in their careers or in life like some. They achieved it after surviving. They survived while others literally died, or quit. In their cases it wasn’t just that they were the best, but they were the best because of what they endured. They were the last one’s standing.
We don’t know when our breakthrough will come. So don’t guarantee your failure by quitting. You can adapt, change, and evolve, but never, never, never quit!
Have a great weekend (and I genuinely mean that). Thanks for reading. I look forward to your honest feedback!
