Determined to Succeed

I’m a collector of quotes from famous and not so famous people. Here is one of my favorites:

"What this power is I cannot say: all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it"

-Alexander Graham Bell.

Major is a Chesapeake Retriever. This incredible dog has a determination and stamina that is incredible. He’s a hunter’s dream. He will not stop looking for a bird until he finds it. He’ll overcome every obstacle. He’ll keep up his hunt no matter the weather. Even when his owner Lonnie Brantley is ready to throw in the towel, Major stays the course. In the dictionary next to tenacious you’ll find a picture of Major.

Major was born with a tenacious spirit but he also gained greatly from training.

Some days in business and in life we want to coast rather than drive on. Dig deep within and you’ll find this mysterious power that gives you the extra you need to push a little more. Get the training you need. And don't give up.

Zig Ziglar always says it best , "A big shot is nothing more than a little shot that kept on shooting."

Moving on,

Jeff Roach
