To Give Up Is To Fail

No actions are failures. True failures only happen when you give up. How true...

All actions, whether they are desirable or not are all successful actions for they will serve as a reference point for you to move forward, to achieve your goals.

Jim Rohn once mentioned that all those actions that are worth doing are worth doing poorly until you can do them right.

Instead, many people have within them a imperfection model of perfection where they will want to believe that if they want to do something, they have to be able to do it properly the first times or after a few tries. If not, then they are not talented or gifted.

Quite contrary, personally I feel that talents are not born, they are made. There are countless success stories around the world which prove my point.

Tiger Woods, Einstein, Beethoven, Michael Jordon, Abraham Lincoln etc are all famous "failures" in their eras!!

If you think you can, or think you cannot, you are right!
~Henry Ford~


Scientists have proven that the average people use less than 10% of their brain. That is to say we have another 90% or more uncovered potential within us!

Everyone, including you, has the potential to be the success they want to be in their lives, as long as they sincerely believe in it.

The difference between a "want" and a "must" is when a "want" is a good-to-have while a "must" is a burning desires to achieve what one set out to accomplish.

Learn to nurture that "must". Others may give up on you, however, what's important is you don't give up on yourself. You cannot control what others think, say or feel about you. Yet, you have 100% and absolute control over what you say, think and feel about yourself.

Live your own life and let others live their. If what they seek is a mediocre life, let them be, but not you for you know you are worth more than what others see, think or feel about you.

All setbacks are just setup for comeback. They provide you with learning opportunities for you to grow, mature and excel.

In order to be successful, you have to make the right decisions. However, for you to make the right decisions, you first must have a mountain of experiences to back you up. And in order to accumulate that mountain of experience behind you, you need to be willingly to make mistakes and learn from them.

Mistakes are the best teachers of life. Not successes.

"There are no hopeless situations; there are only people who have grown hopeless about them."
~Clare Boothe Luce, 1902-1987, American Diplomat and Writer~
