Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Courage to Continue

Courage to Continue

Courage to Continue 

“Success is not final, failure is fatal: It is the courage

to continue that counts.”  

Winston Churchill 1874 -1965, British Statesman, Army Office,

Writer, Prime minister of the United Kingdom 1940 - 1955




As I see it . . . . . . . .

Courage to continue


We will experience success in life . . . . we will also experience setbacks an failure . . . .


Not all success is final . . . . there may be additional steps that will have to be taken to get you to . . . . or across the finish line.


Failure can be a trying experience and may create pain . . . . Failure is a condition . . . . failure is not fatal unless you cave into the failure . . . . and allow it to take control of you and your life.


What will help you across the finish line of life . . . . Is the courage to continue . . . . and keep going no matter what the conditions are in your life.

Hi Lou -- I have always liked this quote and especially appreciate your "interpretation" of it in this post.  Nicely done.

Lou,  Who said, if at first you dont' succeed, try and try again?  You have to pick yourself up and keep on going.

I love that we each have the opportunity to define 'failure' and 'success' for our-selves and I am always intrigued to discover that once one truly unravels the raw definition for them-self, it offers each of us the true courage to plunge into what truly matters to us!
