Trying to make or influence change?


By Tim Lawlor
Well here are some wise words from our friend, Kevin Dee:
Don’t Stop Trying!
Generally speaking the best things in life come at a cost.
Whether it is money, or effort, or time; or some combination of those things, invariably there is some cost.
I would also suggest that very often that cost is greater than you expect.
So, when we want something or want to achieve something we need to keep that in mind.
“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” Dale Carnegie
The way we improve ourselves, and our lot in life is by investing in ourselves, by trying new things and by effort … a lot of effort.
More often than not, those ideas, projects or attempts at improvement will not work the first time. They might even fail multiple times.
The biggest difference between those who achieve their dreams and those who do not is persistence … an unwillingness to give up on that dream.
“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas Edison
Are you willing to do what it takes?
