 “If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride - and never quit, you'll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.” - Paul Bryant

It’s so easy to want to quit when the tide is high, right up against your face.

If you were stuck on the side of the road and ran out of gas would you dump your car?

Would you forget about it and never come back to retrieve it?

Goals are no different than this scenario.

Most people quit just before they’re ready to make the turn towards victory.

Why is this?

Some people believe that they don’t deserve or are worthy of the victory.

They don’t believe in themselves.

These are some people that believed in themselves ad their mission in life.

Abraham Lincoln

Nelson Mandela

Martin Luther King

Rosa Parks

John Lewis

Malala Yousafzai

Helen Keller

. . . and the list goes on and on.

What did they have in their DNA that sets them apart from the pack?

A burning desire.

It’s that burning desire within you that is seeking expression without, regardless of present circumstances.

Don’t quit as you are almost there.

Persist and continue to move forward no matter what.

You must believe in yourself. You must believe that you are special and unique.

The only way to achieve this is to embrace information that resonates with your inner core.

Internalize it with feeling and emotion and as a result, a burning desire will arise within.

You will feel alive and vibrant.

The explosive emotion in your mind, body, and spirit creates a volcano of powerful ideas. The blood flowing through your body is electrified with passion and purpose.


You just woke up and experienced an explosive psychological impact.

The status quo in your life just died and you flipped the switch in your brain from default to design.

This burning desire within you is seeking expression without through your actions.

If you are not strong, confident, and inspired by a burning desire, you will pack up your suitcase at the very first obstacle.

Add a carry on bag along your journey, as you are not packing up your suitcase any time soon.
