Don’t Quit!

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!


When things go wrong as they sometimes will; when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill.

When the funds are low, and the debts are high…

And you want to smile, but have to sigh…

When care is pressing you down a bit - Rest if you must, but do not quit! 

Life is strange with its twists and turns; as every one of us sometimes learns.

And many a failure turns about, when he might have won had he stuck it out.

Don’t give up thought the pace seems slow- You may succeed with another blow. 

Success is failure turned inside out; the silver tint of the clouds of doubt.

And you never can 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 worst that you must not quit!

It’s never give it .. just keep going .. always pick yourself up and just keep on going - I just look at whatever challenge hits me & say to myself .. come on, you can do it .. keep positive and it’ll all work out & it does

Hi Giovanna,

I love the poem, and this video made me cry the first time I watched it. Even this time round, I watched the entire 6 minutes again. Thank you for the reminder not to quit. This post was an excellent way to make the point.

How does one really know what to do without trying and making errors? I wonder if people actually think that Bill Gates hit on the nose on the first try, Ford, he too made mistakes that led to huge success. What about Trump, he screwed up too, and had to start all over again - he learned from his first mistake only to become ultra powerful the second time around.

What do you have to lose? What do you stand to gain?

Love this one a lot:
“Success is failure turned inside out”

Indeed I am huge fun of turning negative energy caused by the failure into recharging one toward the next success.

Good one - like it a lot

I see a lot of little restaurants closing down recently and I wonder if they push on a little furthur, will they come out of this financial crisis wiser and stronger. It is like Napoleon Hill said “Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure.”- keep pushing. Failure is not an option.

Hi Bruno,

We must try and try and try again. Don’t give up. Like you said Bill Gate, Edison, Trump all had to keep pressing on to become who they are.

I agree resistance makes you stronger.

The trick is to figure out which Dips to lean into and which to avoid. To put it another way, follow the growth.

Nancy M. Meer says: 30 January 2009 - 9:22 am

We all must try again and again–never give up–I agree w/that–6 yrs ago, I had my first ever step class taught in a studio at the New York Sports Club that I go to. The gym didn’t have a beginner level, so I was taught step at a intermediate to advanced level–first half of class intermediate and the rest advanced–not a clue as to what I was doing–hearing all these wierd names–reverse turn, box step, L-Step, Travel….at the end of class, Cynthia went up to me and said in 6 classes, I’ll know it perfectly–stick it out! I said, yeah ok, lol–thinking yeah right. Well, I stuck it out–stayed from start to end of ea class and by my sixth class, I finally knew what I was doing.

Giovanna Garcia says: 30 January 2009 - 9:31 am

Your story reminded ancient Chinese General “Han (May be Hang?)” who lost more than 100 times but he won the last one to make his lord become King of China. Thank you for your story.
