Don’t Stop!!!

“Make it a great day.”
Willie Jolley

“You failed many times, although you may not remember:

The first time you tried to walk, you fell down.

The first time you tried to talk, you could hardly make a sound.

The first time you dressed yourself, you may have looked like a clown.

But you didn’t give up!

Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat?

Did you make a cartwheel the first time you tried that?

Did you jerk the car the first time you drove a stick?

Did you do it perfectly the first time you tried a magic trick?

Heavy hitters, the ones who hit the most home runs, also strike out the most, when all is said and done.

Babe Ruth struck out 1,330 times, but he also hit 714 home runs.

R.H. Macy failed seven times before his store in New York caught on.

We all fail sometimes, it’s part of success.

Just don’t stop trying!

Don’t worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try….”

From “A Setback Is a Setup for a Comeback” by Willie Jolley
