Babe Ruth said, “You just can’t beat the person who never gives up.”
We had a perfect example today with the Golden State Warriors beating the San Antonio Spurs 113-111 after being down 25 points in the second half of the game against one of the finest teams in the National Basketball Association (NBA).
Never at any point in the game was I downtrodden about a potential Game 1 Western Conference Finals loss by the Warriors. Never. The Warriors never gave up. I knew they wouldn’t. They have a strong propensity for perseverance and superior execution.
Entrepreneurs never give up. Oh, sure, they may make refinements or adjustments as they go along, but, each day they just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
And, so should you.
Perseverance gives you the opportunity to stand out. Pay attention, make adjustments but continuing to persevere is the key just as the Warriors demonstrated today.
Thought for the week:
