HOW EASILY DO YOU QUIT?

don't be a quitter

Here is a story I found in Napoleon Hills famous book, Think and Grow Rich. He tells us the story of R. U. Darby.

"Darby’s uncle had gold fever, so he staked his claim and started digging. After a lot of hard work, the uncle found a vein of ore, so he
covered up his find and returned home to raise the money for the machinery that he would need to bring the ore to the surface.

They raised the money and Darby travelled with his uncle back to the site to make their fortune. Things started well and before long, they had enough to clear their debts. They were excited, everything from here on would be profit and things were looking good.

Then the supply of gold stopped. The vein of ore had disappeared. They kept on digging, but found NOTHING!

After a while, they quit in frustration and sold their machinery to a junk man for a few hundred dollars.

After they went home in disappointment, the astute junk man called in a mining engineer who checked the mine and calculated that there was a vein of gold just three feet from where Darby and his uncle had stopped digging.

The junk man went on to make MILLIONS from the mine."

End of Story.

Just three feet more was all that Darby and his uncle had to dig to get there. But they quit and the junk man was the lucky one.

How easily do you quit? When you've decide to do anything and you start facing serious problems and challenges, what do you do?

How do you react in the face of trying times? Do you back out or do you passionately keep putting in your best?

Nothing comes easy. To achieve whatever you want in this life, you gotta smartly work for it and put in your best. Don't quit. As long as you have the passion for it, for God's sake DON'T QUIT!

Never back down! The darkest hour is usually just before dawn! Whatever challenge you're facing right now in your life, don't let it stop you from trying. Be rest assured that if you keep trying you will certainly get what you want.

Don't be a quitter. Keep pushing, keep working, keep pressing on. If you can run,  run! If you can walk, walk! If you can crawl, crawl! If you can limp, limp!  If you can fly, fly! But never ever stop moving, because when you stop, everything also stops including the very good things you deserve.

Don't quit, be like a Spartan.. No retreat, No surrender. Live or Die, never give up!

Keep winning!

A Practical Guide To Quit Porn For Good

I don't need to start defining what pornography is to you, why humans are attracted to it and how it affects the brain. You can use Google to find them out. I believe why you are reading this article is simply to find out how you can end the desire to see pornography for good. That's what I'm going to FOCUS on. No distractions.

Almost everyone who uses the internet knows what porn is, even though we'd like to pretend that it's not there, but we all know it's there.

The internet is one of the best things invented on earth and has led to quick exchange of information across nations and beyond borders.

Ideally, things should be improving rapidly based on this development, but guess what? Few people are actually using that internet for something useful. Many have been drawn to the dark side of the net where pornography lives.

Web statistics really show that a lot more people are spending more time viewing porn sites and the number is increasing.

Enough of the pr…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…
