My wife and I were talking this week and she mentioned something to me that hit me and related so well to the topic of consistency that I have been thinking about this week.
Now I may not get her words down perfectly, but she said something to effect of “you have to keep trying, the moment you give up and stop trying is the moment let the other person win”
Her words are so true. Life is all about working and never giving up. We have to keep trying and keep striving for what we want and for who we want to be. Even when things get tough…we have to keep trying. When we make a mistake, or fall back into old ways…we have to keep trying. It is in these moments that we define who we are.
Thanks for the wise words babe.

Tried to comment on this a few days ago, but for some reason it didn’t work. Just wanted to say that I love a similar quote… “You haven’t failed, until you decide to quit trying to succeed.” The key here, and what your wife said, is that we have complete control over the moment we fail or let the other person win. Far too many people don’t ever realize this.
I love this quote…and have heard it before. It applies perfectly to this lesson. Thanks for passing it along
