When things go wrong as they sometimes will,When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,When the funds are low and the debts are highAnd you want to smile, but you have to sigh,When care is pressing you down a bit,Rest, if you must, but don’t quit.Life is queer with its twists and turns,As everyong […]

      Glad you liked it. It is difficult to know why you give up so easily.

      Thank you Omatra. So what does never giving up really mean? It means believing in yourself. It means willingness to accept “failure” so you can learn the critical skill of adaptation. It means not compromising on your most important values, and walking the walk, rather than just talking the talk.
