Never Give Up!!
Welcome back everybody! I’m Brian Bogert and I am so excited to be back today for: Episode-38 of Bogert’s Bullets!
Today’s Topic: Never Give Up!
Thomas Edison once said, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up!” It doesn’t matter how old you are or what level of success you’ve had, NEVER GIVE UP! IT’S ALWAYS TOO SOON TO QUIT!
One of my favorite quotes is, “People are celebrated publicly for what they’ve celebrated in private for years!” Some of the best examples of that are those who are celebrated in the limelight today. Tina Fey was working at the YMCA at the age 23. She didn’t get her success until later in life. Oprah Winfrey was fired from her 1st reporting job at age 23 and told she was not made for television. I’d argue that she’s done pretty well in television! Vera Wang didn’t get the editor in chief job at VOGUE and didn’t even make her 1st dress until the age of 40. Harrison Ford was a carpenter at age 30. Samuel L. Jackson didn’t get his 1st movie role until age 42. Stan Lee didn’t write his 1st comic book until he was age 40. Julia Child didn’t release her 1st cookbook until age 39 and didn’t get her 1st cooking show until age 51. And I think one of the coolest examples is, Morgan Freeman. He didn’t get his 1st major movie role until age 52! And for the last 27 years he’s been bringing us JOY and one of the most epic voices we’ve ever heard doing voice-overs, movies, commercials. The last 3rd of his life he’s been chasing his passion!
IF YOUR PURPOSE AND PASSION IS BIG ENOUGH, NO OBSTACLE WILL STAND IN YOUR WAY!! No age, no limit, NOTHING will get in your way! I don’t care if you’re 30, I don’t care if you’re 40, 50, 60, or 70, are you chasing your passion? Are you chasing your purpose? Have you accomplished all the great things you’ve wanted to accomplish in your life? If you haven’t, IT’S ALWAYS TOO SOON TO QUIT!! Buckle down, keep chasing it, and have the confidence to go after what you want! The fastest road to failure is giving up! NEVER GIVE UP!!
