Never give up

How many blessings first appear as troubles? How many opportunities come in the form of problems? If you give up when trouble first arrives, you’ll miss out on the good fortune that’s in disguise.

Never give up. Nothing can bring you down unless you let it. Refuse to cooperate with your problems. Somewhere, there is a way to turn anything to your advantage. Know it is there, find it, and do it.

No matter what happens in the outside world, your mind and spirit are always free for you to use as you wish. They are yours. Use them to your benefit. Use them to move past the challenges. Use them to turn negative situations into positive energy.

You are incredibly effective. You can get the results you desire, no matter what obstacles come your way. Giving up is not an option. You have every reason to keep going. See it through to the end, and you’ll like the way it turns out.

— Ralph Marston
