Don’t Give Up.
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas A. Edison
Never, ever give up.
Easy to say now when you don’t have failure running through your veins.
Or ridicule echoing through your ears.
Doubts stealing your sleep.
We give up when the pain overtakes the vision of what we are doing.
So if we deal with the pain, we don’t have to give up.
What is pain?
It’s the precursor to growth.
Anything we grow, develop or give birth to will cause us pain.
It’s a fact of life.
So get over it.
Learn to embrace it.
Get to know it.
Because once you learn what it is, you can then learn to master it.
Once mastered, it becomes a signal.
A positive one.
As any sportsperson will tell you, pain is what got them there.
They learnt to use it as a green light to success.
Knowing the success on the other side made it all worth it.
So are you feeling the burn right now?
You business, your idea, or your goal is unrealised?
Welcome to the painful school of the successful.
This is where you’ll graduate with the 1% or drop out with the 99%.
I’m hoping you chose the former, not the latter.
Because you may just be around the corner, like Mr Edison was…
From lighting up our world.
Don’t give up.
