Never give up!
I was so impressed by the past weekends golf competition for the FedEx Cup. First place was worth an $18 million dollar bonus to the winner and second place $6.5 million dollars.
The eventual winner started the final round 6 shots behind the leader.
Rory never gave up, and eventually prevailed on the 18th hole. A win for the ages!
The lesson can be summed up by the old saying, how does one eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
When all is lost and you are failing or think you are failing, don’t give up! Keep moving forward one step at a time.
This reminds me of the book I’ve mentioned before, “The Slight Edge”. Definitely worth a read. At Professional Investors Life & Annuity we follow the “Slight Edge” philosophy. Every single day we try to make the best positive decision.
We know that over time these positive decisions have a compounding effect on performance. Happy to buy the book for anyone who asks me to send them a copy. Good stuff!
