Now for some examples of famous achievers, who refused to quit...

R.H Macy failed 7 times, before his store in New York caught on.

English novelist John Creasey got 753 rejection slips before he published 564 books.

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

So don't worry about failure. Worry aboutrepparttar chances you miss, when you don't even try.

Abraham Lincoln didn't quit. He once wrote:

"The sense of obligation to continue is present in all of us. A duty to strive isrepparttar 123903 duty of us all. I feel a call to that duty." - Abraham Lincoln

"The path was worn and slippery. My foot slipped out from under me, knockingrepparttar 123904 other out ofrepparttar 123905 way, but I recovered and said to myself, 'It's a slip and not a fall.'" Lincoln spoke these inspiring words after losing a senate race. He never quit...and so won't I.

Will YOUR name be mentioned some day as not being a "quitter", who overcame almost insurmountable obstacles?

Will YOU quit, whatever you are doing...if you really believe in your "unique calling" - a tribute torepparttar 123906 power of persistance and faith?

"It is notrepparttar 123908 critic who counts, notrepparttar 123909 man who points out how repparttar 123910 strong man strumbles, or whererepparttar 123911 doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs torepparttar 123912 man, who is actually inrepparttar 123913 arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again because there is no effort without error and shortcomings, who knowsrepparttar 123914 great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows inrepparttar 123915 endrepparttar 123916 high achievement of triumph and who at worst, if he fails while daring greatly, knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

- Theodore Roosevelt

Continued from page 1

The title of this article mentioned being more successful; it's true. Later that day, I made a follow-up call to someone I had almost given up on. They were waiting to hear from me and in a short time became one of my best customers. There were some other things that happened that day that contributed to a higher level of success. Hadrepparttar poor attitude stayed with me, I would have missed out on so many things!

Also, having a good attitude might be able to help in other ways. Medical research indicates that people with a positive attitude may recover more quickly, and it seems to contribute to a better overall sense of well-being.

Now, I use "Sunshine Center" asrepparttar 123902 name forrepparttar 123903 place within me whererepparttar 123904 positive attitude andrepparttar 123905 self-motivating reminders are alive and well. Corny? Perhaps. Effective? Nothing else like it!
