Quitting is Not An Option: How to Get Up One More Time Personally and Professionally

Leadership Development - Lee Ellis

Last month, “How the Mighty Fall” by author Jim Collins was a recommended read from Lee’s bookshelf. Now, check out this insightful article on the same topic. Have you been, are you, or will you be in a place where you’re in the midst of a personal or professional battle?

Jim Collins mentions in this article – “The path out of darkness begins with those exasperatingly persistent individuals who are constitutionally incapable of capitulation. It’s one thing to suffer a staggering defeat—as will likely happen to every enduring business and social enterprise at some point in its history—and entirely another to give up on the values and aspirations that make the protracted struggle worthwhile. Failure is not so much a physical state as a state of mind; success is falling down—and getting up one more time—without end.”
