I posted this last year but think it’s important to post again for those who are working so hard. Even you don’t like Churchill, I think this is a very important lesson:
Winston Churchill failed the sixth grade.
When he became an adult he ran for public office but was defeated in every election for public office until he became Prime Minister at the age of 62 and led England during one of its darkest times of World War II.
The British, of course, prevailed in that war and Churchill became one of the world’s most quoted and most admired public figures of all time.
About these experiences he wrote, “ 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 honor and good sense. Never, Never, Never, Never give up.”
There is something to be said for tenacity. Churchill not only achieved success but his Never, Never, Never Never give up quote is now a magnet (one that I have on my refrigerator) complete with his original capitalization of the word Never.
No matter how often you feel defeated, keep going.
No matter how hard it seems or how difficult the journey, keep going.
In the darkest night, on the loneliest day, keep going.
