You Can’t Stop Someone Who Is Not Giving Up

A lesson my best friend taught me.

The difference between winners and losers, is many times, a matter of inches. They both fail, but it’s about how they pick themselves up and do it again and again until it’s done.

There are always obstacles.

The bigger the obstacles, the better is the feeling once you overcome them. If you find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't lead anywhere.

“Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.” — Roger Crawford

My friend has an incredible spirit and contagious optimism. Thanks to him, I’ve learned to aim higher and enjoy the challenges.

When you turn the face to the sun, the shadows will fall behind you.

He used to say, stay true to yourself. Put your heart into whatever you do and if you can’t do it, take yourself out. By maintaining the highest standard of integrity, regardless of what other people may do, you will succeed.

All the late nights and early mornings will eventually pay off.

“Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence, is the key to unlocking our potential.” — Winston Churchill

The one thing I have is a curious mind. It keeps me moving forward and opening new doors. Like a kid, I keep asking why.

I believe that hard work beats talent.

It was actually Michael Jordan who once said that talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships.
