Lou Ludwig Success Tips: You May Knock Me Down But I Won’t Stay Down

You May Knock Me Down But I Won’t Stay Down

You May Knock Me Down But I Won’t Stay Down

“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”

 Babe Ruth 1895 – 1948, American Professional Baseball Player,

Member of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame



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

You may knock me down but I won’t stay down


The hardest person in the world to beat . . . . is a person who refuses to give up.


When you study the top achievers . . . .  they all share one common attribute. The attribute of persistence . . . .  they may have to adjust . . . . but they never give up.  


They will not give up under pressure . . . . or when they are facing great obstacles. They will hang in just a little longer . . . .  and work harder in order to achieve their objectives.


When the going gets rough they refuse to give up . . . . they just keep pushing forward to achieve their goals.


No matter how many challenges you face. No matter how many times you get knocked down don’t give up . . . . Keep getting up . . . . and try again . . . . and again until you succeed.


When you’re knocked down . . . .  refuse to stay down . . . .  Get up and don’t give up.


There is a motto is you may knock me down but I will won’t stay down.

I have always liked the saying that it is not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.

When you watch a child take those first steps, how many times do they fall? Without determination, they would never walk. Thanks for another amazing post, Lou. D

We all have a choice...picking yourself up...dusting yourself and learning that every knock can be a Boost if you choose to learn from it is the best way to rise !
