Have you ever felt like you just want to throw in the towel – call it a day  hang up the gloves and just QUIT?  

Perhaps we have all felt like that at one time or another, but stay with me right now, because I would love to share with you a few true life stories that I believe will encourage you NOT to quit. These stories will be inspiring to you and just may keep you in the game!
I am at the end of my ROPE!  I’m just hanging by a THREAD! I think I’m going down!  I give up! Ever heard these expressions or similar ones? Perhaps you’ve said them yourself!  Well, I’d like to lend a little encouragement to help you stay in the game and continue to fight!  

You know, Thomas Edison said,  Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” Who better to lend that kind of advice!  When interviewed by a young reporter who asked him if he felt like a failure and if he thought he should just give upEdison replied, "Young man, why would I feel like a failureAnd why would I ever give up? Success is almost in my grasp." Shortly after that, and with over 10,000 attempts, Edison invented the light bulb.

In the book The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, there is a story of a 19 year old named Rick Little who wanted to start a program in the high schools that would teach kids some valuable life lessons. He wrote a proposal and pitched it to over 155 foundations over the course of nearly a year and everybody said NO! Finally the Kellogg’s Foundation gave Rick $130,000!  Since that time, he and his team have raised over 100 million dollars and because of that, 3 million kids a year are being taught important life skills, all because a 19 year old teenager refused to give up!

I want to share a poem with you that I think you’ll find inspiring. It's called
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When life is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a fellow turns about
Think! You might have WON had you stuck it out!
So don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup;
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -
It's the silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems  so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit!

There is ALWAYS A SOLUTION! Just keep at it – keep asking – keep trying – keep exploring – keep experimenting!  Just don’t give up! … There is NO solution if you do! – Just remember Thomas Edison – Rick Little and Jack Canfield, who after being rejected 130 from book publishers, went onto sell 8 million copies of his book Chicken Soup for the Soul around the world.
