Be Persistent - Never Give Up!

Thursday, November 30, 2017

 

There is a ‘saying’ in real estate that there are 3 key ingredients to success; Position, position, position.
In achieving goals there are three as well. Persistence, persistence, persistence.

The Battle of Britain ranks as one of the great stories of beating the odds. The British Air Force were outnumbered by more than 3 to 1, yet they beat off their attackers. That historic victory was led by Winston Churchill, Prime Minister at the time, who said - “We will never, never, never, give up”

I remember years ago the world was shocked when it was revealed from private diaries that Mother Teresa suffered lifelong attacks of doubt. We shouldn’t have been surprised, as she was human like the rest of us. We all suffer doubt and fears sometimes.

Recently I was at a point where I needed a boost and happened on this poem in Paul Hanna’s book “You can do it”
I liked it so much I printed it out and read it regularly. I hope you like it too.

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 you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must but don’t you quit

Life is strange with its’ twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a person turns about
When they might have won had they stuck it out
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another go
 
Often the goal is nearer than it seems
To a faint and faltering person
Often the struggler has given up
When they might have captured the victors cup
And they learned too late when the night came down
How close they were to the golden crown
 
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 mustn’t quit.
 
Remember, success is a journey, not a destination.
