No Defeat Except From Within

Exasperating. Aggravating. Overwhelming.

Sometimes this is the way running your business can make you feel. Those are the days, naturally, that you just want to pack it all in and give up on your dream.

American writer, businessman, and philosopher, Elbert Hubbard, were he alive today, would undoubtedly tell you No No NO!

According to Hubbard…

“Genius is often only the power of making continuous efforts…How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience, would have achieved success…In business sometimes prospects may seem darkest when really they are on the turn. A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed hopeless failure may turn to glorious success. There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no really insurmountable barrier save our own inherent weakness of purpose.”

Yes, where does defeat come from except from within. The buck always stops here, with you. So get out there and give it some attitude adjust. YOU CAN DO THIS!

Like Hubbard said…

“Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.”
