Don't Quit!!!

My dear friend Nita posted this poem on a group that I am apart of on my weight loss site and I wanted to share it with all of you. Take the time to really read each line and let the magnitude of what it says soak in , then go out there and use it!! The meaning goes well beyond just facing an obstacle with your journey of weight loss. It is relevant for every aspect of our lives.

Push past any barrier that stands in your way of greatness today! A while back I posted a quote that is one of my all time favorites. I want to share it again with you as I think it goes well with the poem below.

"Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain."

Don"t Quit -

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
A every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Do not allow the small things in life to derail you from your journey. Stay focused, stay strong and above all, don't quit!!!!
