Thought for the day…

We have a lot less control over winning or losing at something than we do over trying or quitting something. Always try. You can eventually win. If you always quit, you can never win.

When people give up, even in their thoughts, it’s game over. I make a point to remember that I may not be the most successful man in a room and I may not be the smartest man in a room, but I am pretty confident that I am usually one of the most persistent people in the room.

That commitment to always trying has helped me succeed. I think it is one of the things that consistently helps anyone have long-term success.

The whole process has to begin with the old axiom: if you think you can or if you think you can’t, you’ll be right.
