Rule #122 2/15/16
Giving Up Is Not An Option
We just have to have faith when things appear like they will never yield our way, we must maintain an unshakable confidence and belief that in the end, all that falls apart will come together again stronger and full of more wisdom than before, every experience, every challenge, every time we fall flat on our faces, through ever disappointment, every heart ache, every loss, there was and is a deep meaning purpose behind it, so there is no need to ever feel discouraged, no need to ever give up; every moment in life has something beautiful to teach us, keep pushing forward, we only fail when we choose to give up! ~Will "Story" Rivera
Did you know that Margaret Mitchell, author of “Gone With The Wind” was rejected by over 78 publishers before one publishing company accepted her book, Beethoven’s musical teacher growing up told him that he was a hopeless composer, Walt Disney was turned down by over 750 different banks when he was trying to get the loan to build Disneyland, he was also fired from his job, because he so called “lacked fresh ideas“ and had to file bankruptcy 6 times before his dream was fulfilled, Colonel Sanders (creator of Kentucky Fried Chicken) - was told "No" by over a thousand restaurants for more than a year while he lived in his car trying to sell his chicken recipe.
Michael Jordan was cut from the High School team and told he just didn’t have the skills to play basketball? Here are his thoughts on what we believe to be “so called failure”
“If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and I missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is exactly why I succeed.”~Michael Jordan
