How Not to Quit

Join us on our new podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.


Some people go through life quitting whenever an adverse wind blows. Winners see strong winds as a challenge to overcome. They understand that life is made up of difficult situations that merely strengthen a person for their next challenge.

Winners throughout history didn't quit in their pursuit of success. Albert Einstein never quit in his understanding of the theory of relativity--specifically mass-energy equivalence. Thomas Edison never quit on his experiments with the light bulb.

Winners never make stopping along the way a valid option. They have a goal, vision and mandate, which propel them to move forward. This mandate gives them their blueprint for success.

Your success is not limited by your abilities, intelligence or education. Limitations are conceived in the mind. Remove your limited thinking, and you'll gain a new perspective to help fulfill your vision.

History may record what appears to be merely a goal, vision or mandate at this time in your life, but if you persevere and keep your dreams on your horizon, you'll see your dreams realized. You are a winner. Don't quit in your pursuit of success.

For the month of August we are celebrating the 40th anniversary of Charisma. Join us for giveaways each weekday, pages from our past, and more. We're including an anniversary special where you can get 40 issues of Charisma for only $40!
