Just What I Needed...

I get these inspirational emails daily - and this one just really hit me:

When do you give up, throw in the towel and stop trying? If your goal is right, consistent with your values and an accurate reflection of what you truly want, NEVER. Most failures occur because people give up too easily. Nearly everything of value comes at a cost and over time. It's easy to lose sight of that in the quick fix, instant gratification world of the 21st century. But those who persist will prevail.
There will be times when you are at your wits end, beaten up, frustrated and feeling hopeless. Remember the words of Sir Winston Churchill "never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense." Harrow School, October 29, 1941. Still good advice.

More from Churchill:

"We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France,
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender!"

Don't make me bust out the Ray Fight Song. lol
