Keep tryingSometimes we fail.
Everyone fails. In fact, there has never been a successful person who has not experienced failure. Of course, that includes me. I’ve had more than my share of failure.
But I think it’s essential that we simply keep trying. Nothing… NOTHING… can replace drive, persistence and tenacity when matched with a deep-seeded desire for achievement and faith that it will happen if you just keep trying.
 
If you’re having a bad day, keep your chin up and keep trying.
If you’re having a bad week, keep your chin up and keep trying.
And, if you’re having a bad year, keep your chin up and keep trying.
 
“Keep trying!” I said.
And, no matter how bad you feel, remember that success is the pursuit of worthy goals, not the achievement of them. Therefore, in my book, as long as you are trying, you are successful!
 
Keep your chin up and keep trying my friend… keep your chin up and keep trying!
