The NEXT time you are ready to QUIT something, READ THIS POST!
I am always on the lookout for inspiring material!
And so, today I wanted to re-share one of my favorite inspirational quotes!
You might want to print this out and keep it in your desk drawer.
So the next time you feel like giving up you take it out and read itπππ
Because, as the saying goes; Failure is not an option!
“A mind is like a parachute, it doesn’t work if it is not open.” / Frank Zappa
Here it is:
When you’re lost in the Wild, and you’re scared as a child,
And Death looks you bang in the eye,
And you’re sore as a boil, it’s according to Hoyle
To cock your revolver and . . . die.
But the Code of a Man says: “Fight all you can,”
And self-dissolution is barred.
In hunger and woe, oh, it’s easy to blow . . .
It’s the hell-served-for-breakfast that’s hard.
“You’re sick of the game!” Well, now, that’s a shame.
You’re young and you’re brave and you’re bright.
“You’ve had a raw deal!” I know — but don’t squeal,
Buck up, do your damnedest, and fight.
It’s the plugging away that will win you the day,
So don’t be a piker, old pard!
Just draw on your grit; it’s so easy to quit:
It’s the keeping-your-chin-up that’s hard.
It’s easy to cry that you’re beaten — and die;
It’s easy to crawfish and crawl;
But to fight and to fight when hope’s out of sight —
Why, that’s the best game of them all!
And though you come out of each grueling bout,
All broken and beaten and scarred,
Just have one more try — it’s dead easy to die,
It’s the keeping-on-living that’s hard.
– Robert William Service
That’s a wrap.
I hope it spoke to you!
And the next time (because there WILL be a next time) you think about quitting, you remember this post and you don’t!
