If you quit what you have started, you’ll never know what winning feels like. If you are feeling challenged – DON’T QUIT. Yes, you have heard it several times but I am going to remind you again and again because I know at times on this journey the pressure gets real intense when in pursuit of a dream. Sometimes all you want someone to tell you is – DON’T QUIT! In fact, reminding you is also reminding myself and I am no different from you because I too encounter challenges. So I am going to share this poem a poem that I really love because it has helped me to regain my focus on this journey. Here it goes:
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 queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out –
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit –
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
Remember, you were made for this. You can WIN but there will come times when you have to go WITHIN.
IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.
