I remember studying Winston Churchill's famous speech he gave during WWII. *He stirred the resolve of the British people:


"This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy."


I came across this YouTube video the other day. *It made me think of Churchill. *It made me think; sometimes, when all odds are against us, those are the times to strive hardest. *Have you ever noticed when you keep striving, while facing insurmountable odds, that is when providence reaches in from out of nowhere giving the boost you need to succeed?

Watch this video all the way through. *You will be amazed.

Never giving up is a great way to achieve and push forwards.

Something I have found to be interesting about this concept in business is at times, you may not win the battle but you can win the war. Some business models are not going to work. Then if you stick with a model that isn't going to work, you end up going down with it. At times, it seems your best bet is to cut from a bad situation and look for a better one. Maybe that is part of the never surrender concept then. Looking for a better idea.

Do you feel this is the case or no?
