“Don’t Quit – Allow Yourself to Be Inspired”

‘Don’t Quit’

“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.

Success is failure turned inside out;

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;

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 go wrong that you must not quit.”    (Author Unknown)



“Our self-vision or picture of ourselves is a major factor in our self image.  Years ago I heard the radio commentator and personal effectiveness speaker, Earl Nightingale, say, ‘We become what we think about most.’  Luckily I didn’t hear this earlier in my life or I would have been a girl by the time I was 17!”    (Jim Clemmer, ‘What We Get is What We See’)



“Direction determines destination.  So here is a question you must ask yourself, ‘Are all the disciplines that I’m currently engaged in taking me where I want to go?’  What an important question to ask yourself at the beginning of the month, the beginning of the week, the beginning of the day.  Because here is what you don’t ever want to do — kid yourself.  Kid your neighbor, kid me and kid the marketplace, but don’t kid yourself — fingers crossed — hoping you will arrive at a good destination when you’re not even headed that way.”    (Jim Rohn)



“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.”    (Ralph Waldo Emerson)



“Allow yourself to be inspired to your highest potential.”    (Jamie Walters)
