You Get To Decide When It’s Over.

It’s never over until you’re over. It’s not done until you’re done. The job isn’t finished until you’re finished. That’s the beautiful complexity of life. If you want something, you can go and get it as long as you can go.

If you want to be somebody different, you can do that as long as you’re willing to work for it. Willing to work on it.

You don’t get a second chance

You get a third and fourth and fifth — and thousandth chance to keep improving.

Time will come and go. Opportunities will come and go. Things you think are important will move on without you.

You’ll be in the winner’s chair sometimes and in the losing position others. You’ll be up some days and down others.

But, you’re only out when you pull yourself out. The game ends when you decide to take yourself out of the competition.

When you decide that it’s over.

Your situation might feel less hopeful than that. You might feel like you don’t have any more fight left in you. You might think that it’s too late for you. That your time has come and gone.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

What you do right now matters. Don’t lose hope because of how bad things might look right now.

As long as you have fight, the battle is worth fighting. Swing away.
