Never, Ever Quit

"In the business world, the rearview mirror is always clearer than the windshield."
~Warren Buffet~

Leadership requires incredible resilience to the comments of all of those around you who do not have to make the decisions that you have to make under pressure and with incomplete information. Never doubt yourself, and always learn from your mistakes; because you will make many of them. The question is how well you recover from your mistakes. Never get down on yourself and never give up.

"It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause. Who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. "
~ Theodore Roosevelt ~

"There is no chance, no destiny, no fate that can circumvent or hinder
or control the firm resolve of a determined soul."
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox ~
