Thinking About... Don't Give Up!

Hi everybody! I wanted to share some encouraging poems, quotes, and GIFs! Hope you enjoy!

Oh, the Places You'll Go! - By Dr. Seuss

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
Any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And
you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll
decide where to go.
You’ll get mixed up,
of course, as you already know.
You’ll get mixed up with
many strange birds as you go.
So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great
tact and remember that
Life’s A Great Balancing Act.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and ¾ percent guaranteed.)
Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, when he stated, he had over 10,000 failed attempts. He was quoted as saying "it wasn't a failure he just found 10,000 ways a lightbulb would not work". What if he didn't try again? Let's look at how we can benefit using these words in our dealership and in our lives!

Everyone is intelligent, you just have to work hard.

C.S. Lewis:
Read a lot! Reading is so good for you. The more you read the more you know. Reading also helps you understand cultural references. For an example, Ice Age references Treasure Island (by Robert Louis Stevenson) many times. If you have never read Treasure Island you would never get the references. But when you do understand the references you feel so excited, all your hard work has paid off!

It's better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and youll drift in that direction. - Warren Buffett:
This is a very good tip. Hang around people who you would like to be like. When you are around people who have a bad influence, you will adopt their attributes. The same goes for people with a good influence, you will start to adopt their good attributes. Be around people who you would like to be like in 10, 20, or 30 years. Think about how they got to where they are, and how you could replicate some things in your life to be like them.

Don't Quit

by: Unknown Author

"When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When 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
As 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.
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."


Best thing EVER!!!! This will brighten your day :)

Have an amazing day everyone!!
