MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” –Og Mandino
When I was young and I was just starting to read books that would help me to improve myself, one of my favorite authors was Og Mandino. He wrote a book called The Greatest Salesman in the World. It was a phenomenal book for me. But here's a quote from Og Mandino. He says, ‘failure will never overtake me if’ (that's the keyword)…’my determination to succeed is strong enough’.
Welcome to Minute with Maxwell. My name is John, and what Og Mandino says in that statement is very simple. There are two emotions that we have during adversity. One emotion is to give up and to quit. And the other is to be persistent and hang on and stay in the game. What Og Mandino knows (that I want to learn and I want you to learn also) is that these two emotions are always alive within us. It's not like my give up is predominant and I have no let's get on with it. You’ve got to understand I've got the positive and I’ve got the negative running through me all the time.
The question is, which one of the two is the stronger: Give up or go on? Because OG Mandino basically says to us: the stronger of the two emotions give up or go on, will determine if we give up or go on. So, I want to encourage you, make the determination today that your will to succeed is going to be greater than your willingness to fail.
Thanks for joining me today on Minute with Maxwell.
