Don't Give Up

Saturday, August 17, 2013

I found this inspiring:


People who didn't give up:

* Thomas Edison's teachers said he was "too stupid to learn anything." He was fired from his first two jobs for being "non-productive." As an inventor, Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, "How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?" Edison replied, "I didnít fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps."

* Albert Einstein did not speak until he was 4-years-old and did not read until he was 7. His parents thought he was "sub-normal," and one of his teachers described him as "mentally slow, unsociable, and adrift forever in foolish dreams." He was expelled from school and was refused admittance to the Zurich Polytechnic School.

*Babe Ruth is famous for his past home run record, but for decades he also held the record for strikeouts. He hit 714 home runs and struck out 1,330 times in his career (about which he said, "Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.")

*Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because "he lacked imagination and had no good ideas." He went bankrupt several times before he built Disneyland. In fact, the proposed park was rejected by the city of Anaheim on the grounds that it would only attract riffraf

*When Julie Andrews took her first screen test for MGM studios, the final determination was that "She's not photogenic enough for film."

*When Lucille Ball began studying to be actress in 1927, she was told by the head instructor of the John Murray Anderson Drama School, "Try any other profession."

* Beethoven handled the violin awkwardly and preferred playing his own compositions instead of improving his technique. His teacher called him "hopeless as a composer." And, of course, you know that he wrote five of his greatest symphonies while completely deaf.

Yes, it is the giving up that gets us nowhere. The common denominator of these inspiring stories is that they persevered against the odds. It is my birthday today and I love that shot of inspiration you have given us. A great gift! emoticon

    Wow. It's just so hard to hang on to your dreams when it seems everyone around you is saying you can't. You've really got to believe in yourself to still push through.

Woohoo!

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

Today was pretty awesome. My swimsuit which is usually really tight, and hard for me to get on. Well, I had not been swimming for awhile. I went to put it on, and it just slid right on me super easily. What a difference! I was actually really surprised, but I have been doing a lot of crunches lately so I think that counts for something! I also happened to find this really pretty blue bikini that was on sale, really small, but it was probably the prettiest swimsuit I had ever seen. I couldn't resist and I bought it. I don't know when I will reach that point, it's going to be quite awhile, but I bought it for inspiration. It reminds me of the quote by Michelle Branch: "I would rather try and fail, then never try and wonder what if." So that is my attitude. Maybe I won't ever get into that swimsuit for a very long time, but hey, it's worth aiming for at least right? What have I got to loose when I have so much to gain in the process?

    That's amazing, congrats! I have found that buying clothes in smaller sizes often works as motivation for me to lose, so I hope that the blue bikini will work the same way for you. I'm sure you'll wear it someday! :)
