Never Stop Earlier Than You Started!

You guys still remember my post about a giraffe baby being brought into this world in A View From The Zoo: Never Give Up? It's about how the young giraffe is being introduced into this new harsh world. Sometimes it's necessary for us to get under way through the school of hard knocks! I believe that adversities has its advantages and every single blow is essential to help us grow.

There's a common thread that runs through the lives of exceptional people. They got hit so hard on their heads, knocked down, denigrated, and for years they get to no where. It's like they are stuck in where they are; they look hopeless to naysayers. But ever time they're knocked down, they stand up. You cannot destroy these people. A man is not finished when he is defeated. He is finished when he quits. One of the most common sayings that I love to share with everyone in my life is Never Give Up! I have to say that this simple statement is one the most powerful success principled eve preached.


Joel Rudd remarked, "It isn't the final say so, unless you say so." Nobody and nothing can keep you down unless you decide not to rise again. A lazy man is always deduced by what he doesn't do. The choice of giving up or going on (not hanging on) is a defining moment in your life. You may never turn back the clock. But you can wind it up again. From my observation, the most common trait I have found in all people that are successful is that they have conquered the temptation o give up. Even the1st conquerer of Everest-Edmund Hilarry had to more than one time right? But did he gave up?

The world will always give you the opportunity to quit,
but only the world would call quitting an opportunity.

In trying times, don't stop trying. Instead of stopping, follow this proverb: "Don't fall before you are pushed."Even when playing DOTA or red alerts, you know that you may have to fight a "battle" more than once to win it right? And of course we should stop complaining to much (fuel hike etc.) and start doing things which are in our circle of influence starting with ourselves. Remember: there are no hopeless situations,there are only men who have grown hopeless about them.

Stand up or lie down?

The choice is simple. You can either stand up and be counted, or lie down and be counted out. Defeat never comes to people until they admit it. Anyone can quit. Have the courage to live.
