Keep On Striving

Posted on


WELCOME BACK.  “Richard Nixon once said “A man is not finished when he is defeated. He is finished when he quits”. I have come to realize the fact that persistence is one of the success trait in the history of mankind. Nothing can keep you down unless you decide not to rise again. The most important saying I ever had in the history of success is “never give up”. It’s a powerful principles of success spoken by great minds. In the arena of success you either stand up and be counted or lie down and be counted out. Defeat never comes to people until they admit it. Your success and failure will be measured by your willingness to persist, or your willingness never to continue any longer. Persistence is the fundamental difference between a successful outcome and a failed outcome. Nothing important was ever accomplished without setbacks and difficulties to contend with along the way, example Henry Ford went bankrupt three times before he managed to design his first automobile. As we all know and are grateful for, he subsequently succeeded to become one of the richest men in the world. He said: “Failure is merely an opportunity to more intelligently begin again”. Failure is not your final bus stop.

What about Thomas Edison. Thomas Edison is said to have tried 10,000 times to create the light bulb before he succeeded. His attitude was: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.” Persistence is definitely the difference between a successful outcome and a failed one due to giving up. It’s one of the most admirable attitude a person can possess. What does it mean. It means the ability to be determined to do or achieve something regardless of any opposition. Keep on striving because it takes a lion heart to eat a lion’s meat. When you persist it means you know it and so does everyone else. Never give up on what you really know you should do. Failure is waiting on the path of least persistence. The great achievers spent many days and nights getting there. They simply do what loser don’t want to do longer. Striving for success is a proof that you have not been defeated. Dr. Mike Murdock said “You have no right to anything you have not pursued, for the proof of desire is in the pursuit”. The secret of success is to start from scratch and keep on scratching. Remember, life holds no greater wealth than that of steadfast commitment. You can never be robbed of it, but only lose it by your willingness.
