Never Quit Armstrong

In life, the moment we call it quit, we are ending our chances in getting what we truly love.  Yes, there is the right time to know when to stop but if we are talking about our passion and realizing it, there should be the determination to keep moving forward… If it didn’t work, be creative, seek assistance, and give it another strategic try until we finally get it right.

The remarkable Lance Armstrong shared the wisdom from his Mom (Linda Armstrong) that says: “Just give it your best and don’t quit.  Don’t ever quit.”

Who is Lance Armstrong?

He beat testicular cancer though the doctors said that his chance of survival is 40 to 50 percent and won Tour de France (one of the prestigious and hardest cycling races in the world and made an unbeaten record of seven consecutive times).  It was his passion to get on his bike and show to the world his endurance and his excellence in being an athlete but most importantly he was showing too that he can beat a deadly cancer which inspired a lot of people.

To quote what he said to The Associated Press, “Being able to have a job that I love immensely, yet then being able to use that job as a platform to speak about other things, bigger things, like the fight against cancer. We should all be so lucky.”

So let us work on our dreams “brick by brick” until we reach our full potential and we’ll be happy every single day; but we got to set our mind to: NEVER QUIT!

E For Effort

Continuous effort – not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential. ~Winston Churchill

Intelligence would surely help but putting an effort is the same as saying put it into action but add care and love too to ensure that it’s done with precision and complete it with perfection.

Take for instance the ice cream I made (refer to photo), it was an effort to put mini Hershey’s kisses at the bottom together with some colored sprinkles, build my London Dairy Double Chocolate ice cream, squeezed a foamy whipped cream, put a generous dashed of colored sprinkles, and finished it off by topping it with a solo mini Hershey’s kisses. I made several batches before I came up with this and I know that if I keep practicing I’ll be fatter able to create a better looking ice cream, the taste is always sweet and good, delicious taste is always a given.

True Nature

Our passion is our true nature, here is Mark Nepo quotes Mechthild of Magdeburg, a medieval mystic:

“A fish cannot drown in water. A bird does not fall in air. Each creature God made must live in its own true nature.”
