Pals, NO success once you QUIT !

I always say to myself, “I am not a
quitter, I am failure!” I’d rather fail a
class three times and eventually pass it than quit
and resign myself to the idea that I “just
can’t get it.”
Most of the things you want in life
you CAN have, but only if you treat failure as a
part of the learning process. If you see failure
as an end, that makes you a QUITTER.
You can’t succeed at anything if you
quit. Don’t be a quitter, be a failure cuz Without a willingness to endure
failure you’ll never reach your goals.

It might come as a shock, but the man who
became what many would call the best basketball
player of all time didn’t make his high school
basketball team.
“I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my
career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26
occasions I have been entrusted to take the
game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed
over and over and over again in my life. And that
is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

Thomas Edison was both hearing impaired and
fidgety. He only lasted three months in school
where his teachers said he was “too stupid to
learn anything.” He eventually was home schooled
by his mom. In talking about his invention of the
light bulb, he said:
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways
that do not work.” – Thomas Edison

When I was a kid I was obsessed with political
campaigns the way other kids were obsessed
with sports. During the 1992 Presidential
campaign there was no greater superstar-
whacko than Clinton’s political operative, James
Carville. With his shaved bald head, snake-like
facial features, and his deep Louisiana accent he
seemed like a man out of the Twilight Zone!
He’s now considered to be one of the greatest
political operatives of a generation. But, before
he ended up on that fateful campaign in his early
40’s he was dead broke, had won only a handful
of elections, and had never even been approved
for a credit card. On paper, he looked like a
complete failure. By not giving up he ended up in
the White House.
“No one will ever accuse James Carville of taking
himself seriously.” – James Carville
——– ——– ——– * *Ludwig van Beethoven*
His early skills at music and the violin were
decidedly less than impressive. His teachers
thought him hopeless. It was his father who saw
the potential in him and took over his education.
Beethoven slowly lost his hearing throughout his
life and yet, four of his greatest works were
composed when he was completely deaf.
“Beethoven can write music, thank God, because
he can’t do anything else!” – Ludwig van

* Christopher Reeve*
The man who played Superman becoming a
quadriplegic was more than ironic – it was
tragic. He never learned to be happy about
his situation – who could? But, he did learn
to live with it.
“In the morning, I need twenty minutes to
cry. To wake up and make that shift, you
know, and to just say, ‘This really sucks,’ to
really allow yourself the feeling of loss. It still
needs to be acknowledged.” – Christopher Reeve
Then, he’d say, “And now…forward!”
He had to take a moment everyday to
acknowledge where he was, what the reality of
the situation was. But, he didn’t allow that to
stop him. He traveled widely doing public
speaking on behalf of people with spinal injuries,
tirelessly raised money for his own and other
foundations, and even became a movie director.
He took what he had and tried to help others in
the best way he could.

Her childhood was frightful and filled with
horrible abuse and abject poverty. But, like most
successful people, Oprah doesn’t dwell on stuff
like that.
“I don’t think of myself as a poor deprived
ghetto girl who made good. I think of myself as
somebody who from an early age knew I was
responsible for myself, and I had to make
good.” – Oprah Winfrey

Remember this; “Some want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” – Michael Jordan
