“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”
— Babe Ruth
How many people do you know who have gotten anywhere in life and done anything worthwhile got there by playing tiddlywinks with their fingers? I would like to know. I would like to meet these people so my life can perhaps be just as easy as theirs is.
More than likely, your answer is none. The people who get anywhere in life and who do anything worthwhile often get there by hard work. Hard work didn’t kill them. Hard work helped to create them. And while few people put their heads down to the grindstone and work at whatever great thing they are doing or creating, many, many people are content to stand by and applaud them.
