never never never give up…..

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent. –Marilyn vow Savant

Such an interesting distinction. Makes me really think about when I bring defeated to its permanent position….

I am curious this week to pay attention to when I feel defeated. I am curious if when this feeling hits,  if I consider my options?

Sometimes it feels as if giving up is easiest but most often I find myself striving again, soon after, to achieve the outcome on which I had given up…

I like the idea that defeated is temporary….I am committed to living by the wise words of Winston Churchill.

One thought on “never never never give up…..”

  1. OK, so here’s the struggle I have. Didn’t Hitler also live by the motto, “Never, never, never give up?” And Osama Bin Laden?

    I’ve pursued some plans of action that I was (at first) pretty convinced was the right thing to do, but after a while, doubt sets in. Never giving up is only heroic if your plan of action is the right one. And that’s not always obvious. At least, not to me.
