Don't Quit

Author:Rob Steffens

The Person: Walt Disney

From humble beginnings on the family farm, Walt Disney climbed his way up from newspaper cartoons to marketing and advertising (yes!) before finding his niche. His animation studio was wildly successful before he turned his sights on creating the world's greatest amusement park.

The Quote

The difference in winning and losing is most often not quitting.

The meaning

When we feel defeated, we most often want to retreat. It’s natural to feel this, but we need to look past it. Doing less and making less of ourselves won’t make future successes more likely.

On the contrary, giving up means putting aside the possibility that success is just around the corner. When you feel you’ve “failed,” you’ve already done much of the work to create success.
