Dont Quit

Dont Quit

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 do not quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure 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 slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Five Things To Do Today

1. Grow: We are living beings, so we need to grow, grow and grow; see an opportunity in everything that we do.

 2. Dream: In the words of my favorite teacher who always reminded me, he said to grow. Dreams will always, be the seedlings of reality ,so dream. So what are you dreaming of today?

 3. Little things: Do the little things to the best of your ability, whether it’s putting on a pair of socks or closing a door. There are no little things, if you get into a habit of working to the top of your potential; you would be able to attain a wide variety of day to day achievements.

 4. Breathe: Stressed???? Take a deep breath in, breathe in and breathe out, now isn’t that nice?, Ever watch a baby breathe? , breathe in, and out. Now that’s a nice breath. Stress over time has moved up our chest. Inhale and Exhale. Don’t you feel good about it? This is called breathing into your diaphragm.

5. Smile: Isn’t that nice, amazing what a smile can do. Once there was this study with a depressed group. The group was split in two. One group was to look at each other and smile all day long, while the other group did nothing. Over a period of time the group that smiled showed a significant amount of progress….Now Look at me and Smile, Isn’t that great.
