Since the beginning of time from those who have come and gone throughout history, there’s been one common and consistent principle that has earned men their breakthrough. In fact, for the past 6000 years, there’s never been a more effective secret of success than this same principle.

So what’s that principle? The attitude of ‘Never Giving Up.’ In the battle between water, the softest element on earth and the rock, the hardest substance on earth, water always win. Because of its power or strength? Nay, water wins by virtue of it’s persistence.

Likewise, most successful people you admire or look up to did not succeed because they were special, brilliant or phenomenal. No! The distinctive quality they had was the fact that they never gave up.

Nick Vujicic, the Australian evangelist who was born with no arms and still has none to lift himself whenever he stumbles has this to say, “I will try one hundred times to get up, and if I fail one hundred times and I give up, will I ever get up? No! But when I fail, I’ll try again and again and again and as long as I keep trying, there’s always that chance of getting up.”

With no further ado, the point is, quitting is the easiest way to failure. Thomas Edison said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Yet it’s quite astounding that even children understand this principle because when a child learns to walk and falls down 50 times, he never thinks to himself: “Maybe walking is not my destiny.”

So the question is, “where did you learn to quit?”

    ‘Where did you learn to quit?’…

    This question is in strong form. Lol.

    It’s so important. The answer that we get when we ask ourselves this question is key to helping us overcome our individual quitting habits. Thanks for another wonderful piece Tosin.
