Never Give Up Day – 18th August 2022

Most people have heard the expression ‘If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again” and that is one of the most valuable pieces of advice anyone could have. Do you think George and Robert Stephenson built the first locomotive engine without many mistakes and re-designs along the way? Do you think that Louie Pasteur and Marie Curie made such spectacular breakthroughs in medical science without many failures and setbacks?

Not only great inventors like Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Edison and Marconi, but also those that have achieved success in other fields; great athletes, sports stars, musicians and people from all walks of life have all had to learn things along the way to enhance and improve their inventions, skills and talents.

Where would we be today if they had all given up after the first mistake?

As part of our own everyday life, it is inevitable that things sometimes go wrong, in our home life, working life, social life. From now on why not try to view any problems, setbacks or mistakes, as opportunities to learn about yourself. Take some time to make positive changes in the way you think about them. Instead of seeing obstacles and barriers, view them as challenges to rise up to and learn from.

You will be amazed how a positive outlook and ‘I can’ attitude will change your life for the better.
