Paul's Blog: Don't Quit
David must have had some doubts.
But he went ahead anyway and defeated his giant.
Frodo and Sam, even though they were lost and exhausted,
Fought for every inch and destroyed the ring.
Edmund was 800 feet from the summit and was too exhausted to go on.
Next year he climbed to the top.
Muhammad was knocked down and lost his title
He found a way to stand again and took it back.
Winston was up against impossible odds
But he rallied the whole nation to never surrender, and they didn’t.
Rosa, was scorned and threatened.
But she knew right from wrong, and didn’t give up her seat on the bus.
Malala was shot and left for dead on her way to school promoting education for women, but she rose again and became a Nobel Peace Prize winner and a world influencer.
Blair was born deaf and without ears, but he believed that something could be done and learned to hear in spite of what doctors said.
You felt trapped; you were defeated and saw the dim shadow of failure looming on the horizon.
You found your courage and your determination, your light shone and you snatched victory from your enemy.
Don’t quit. There is ALWAYS another way.
A Bit about me...
My vision is quite simple: to make an impact on the lives of the people who have been entrusted to me: You (for reading this article), my family and my clients.
I coach people. Direct, practical, innovative, meaningful.
I coach for excellence.
I love what I do... and so do my clients.
Over the years I've noticed that business coaching that was supposed to make us stronger actually took away our confidence and made us doubt ourselves. Confidence and people skills aren't developed just by measuring and planning everything, they grow through doing and learning from experience and by taking risks. People want to make a difference. Build teams. Be better understood. Live more confidently.
I founded IBC Impact Business Communication Inc. to create a world where business people communicate and act with confidence to create better worlds for themselves. Worlds where they feel powerful and free to express themselves. Worlds where something as simple as conversation creates energy, understanding and impact. Worlds so exquisite, I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
