Before success comes in any man’s life, he’s sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That’s exactly what the majority of men do. ~Napoleon Hill
By now we’ve all heard the saying “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” If you’ve ever wanted to change or improve anything in your life you’ve probably either consciously or unconsciously entertained the possibility of failure.
What if we told you that there’s only ONE way to fail… but there are limitless ways to succeed.
To help make this point more clearly, we have combined one of our favorite video’s entitled ” Famous Failures” with one of our favorite poems entitled “Don’t Quit” in an effort to both inspire and encourage you.
We hope you’ll continue to seek until you find that success is the only real possibility… failure only become a realty when you quit. When you don’t give up.. You cannot fail. You can Live your dreams, right here, right now… Do you want to know how??? It’s really quite simple, you must begin at the beginning. Have a dream and hold on to it… BELIEVE in YOU and refuse to quit… Watch the video, read the poem and Live ‘YOUR LIFE’ like ‘YOU’ Own It!
The poem, Don’t Quit, is a short poem that was written many years ago by Edgar A Guest, however, Mr Guest’s words still apply today. We hope you enjoy his thoughts in this inspirational poetry and that it brings you encouragement as you read the verses.
If you are feeling stressed, let this poem encourage you to keep going!
Don’t Quit by Edgar a Guest
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low but 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 failures turn about
When we might have won had we stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow…
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out…
And you can never 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 the worst that you must not quit.
