Chapter 12, Page 5, Book 20

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

Og Mandino

December 5th - never give up trying

Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.

Roy T. Bennett

We are all born with the instinct not to give up.  As babies, we keep trying until we get what we want, what we deserve.  Even when people laughed at us, we still kept trying.But somewhere along the line we lose some of that ability.  The world and people tell us were not capable of achieving our goals. We start to believe them until we lost our ability to believe in ourselves.

We cant predict the future but we can believe in creating a brighter future. and need to trust ourselves.  To trust whot youre doing is the right things to get you to where you want to be.

You owe it to yourself to not give up.  Keep pushing and eventually it will pay off, you have to believe that, no one else will do it for you.

Even when you think youve reached success, renumber that is not the end.  There is always more to do, more that life will have in store for you.

It takes a lot of determination to get to where we want to be in life.  It takes doing things oner and over to get it right.  Dont give up!

Its hard to fail but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.

Absolutely! This reminds me of an example Tony Robbins shared: "How long would you give your baby to learn to walk ... before throwing up your hands and saying, forget about it."

No. Thank goodness, the baby keeps trying and we keep encouraging him.

This is a sweet read. I enjoyed each line as I read. I do like how this sounded when you said:
You owe it to yourself to not give up.
Yep I like that and giving it a lot of thought.

I think being open to learning and growing constantly is a gift and many people don't realize it. I love learning and will never be satisfied with "I think I know enough". Have a great night- xo Diana
