Quitters never...

Quitters never...







Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.


We've all heard the age old adage "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." With that said, why do we expect everything to be easy? The only easy thing to do is QUIT. If you run into a challenge, QUIT! If something doesn't go your way, QUIT! If you don't like an associate's perfume, QUIT! Easy right?

The thing is, easy doesn't get you to your goals.

If success were easy, everybody would be successful. 

If you look at the "fine print" with anything worth having, you'll find the words "hard work" in there somewhere. Fact is, nothing worth keeping comes easy. The only thing that successful people have done that you haven't is stuck with it. They've overcome more obstacles than you have. EVERYONE has challenges and obstacles. EVERYONE has distractions, some people just don't get distracted.

A friend who knows me well asked me, "Do you ever feel like quitting?!" To their surprise, I replied "Every damn day!" Then I continued, "those are just feelings. It's okay to feel like quitting, but if you're a winner you just cant."  Truthfully, I've felt like quitting a lot of things a lot, but I have the spirit of a champion and it will not allow me to do so. I think if you look deep into your soul, you have the same spirit. We cannot allow what we want now prevent us from getting what we want most. 

As Napoleon Hill says, the defeat is temporary. Are you going to let a TEMPORARY setback keep you from getting your PERMANENT SUCCESS? 

I didn't think so. Let's get to work..

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
