There are times in life when quitting makes sense. Maybe you need to abandon a bad investment, or ditch an old garden because you're going to move to the city. Maybe you need to rest up a bit at the end of a tough day's work so you aren't too sore tomorrow.
But when it comes to the deepest dreams of your heart's desire - no, it doesn't make sense.
“Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” ~ Calvin Coolidge
Coolidge was on to something when he pointed out that talent and education had far less to do with success than most people thought. Coolidge, something of a self-made man himself, understood that talent and education only get you so far — when, in fact, quitting will rob you of all of the benefits of your “head start.”
There is only one true human superpower we possess. It’s not the power of flight. It certainly isn’t the power of invincibility — anyone who’s ever failed can tell you that!
It’s determination. The ability to press on when you are tempted to quit. That is the one and only superpower you will ever have.
And the good news is that it’s free.
It’s just not easy. Especially when the world around you doesn’t seem like it wants to accommodate your determination — which, let’s be honest, is most of the time.
You’ll find the inspiration and encouragement to “press on” from the real-life stories inside. Regardless of where you find yourself today, “Rest If You Must, But Don’t You Quit!”
