Happy Monday My Friends,
In last week’s letter, we discussed success, in our personal lives and our work lives. This week’s message is along the same train of thought and how not to give up and keep pushing through towards attaining that goal.
“Big shots are only little shots who keep shooting.” (Christopher Morley)
Few people simply leap to the top of their profession. Most get their incrementally—step by step, experience by experience, and even mistake by mistake. If we give up, we fail for certain. To have even a chance at success, we have to keep reloading and taking aim at our target.
NOTE TO SELF:
Instead of complaining about how frustrating my failures are and how others seem to have it so much better than me, I will just keep plugging along towards what I want. (Linda Picone)
The reward of a thing well done is to have done it. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do. (Benjamin Spock)
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight— it’s the size of the fight in the dog. (Dwight D. Eisenhower)
Mistakes are the portals for discovery. (James Joyce)
Wishing everyone a wonderful week,
