(5) Conquer Obstacles

Never Give Up Until We Succeed

Whether we succeed or not depends largely on our passion and tenacity. A person who never succeeds lacks zeal and resolve. It is all too easy to find acceptable reasons, console ourselves and give up.

If we really wish to achieve something, we can learn from the way our ancestors hunted. Once they found the tracks of their prey, they would track it for days with nothing more than a spear in hand, persevering through rain and wind, until they bagged the game by beating their competitors.

To succeed, we must tenaciously persevere in our efforts to accomplish a goal - and never give up.
