We are all heroes, many people simply don’t know they are. People that try to be more productive, that clean their inbox, track commitments and do stuff are heroes.
What happen when the Hero: fail.
Think for a moment when your favorite hero simply failed. Superman didn’t stop. Batman returned. Harry Potter came to finish the job.
You only failed when you quit, when you decide not to come back, when you stop fighting. You may have setbacks, many of them, more than the amount that see humanly possible to have, but only failed when you quit.
One of my favorite quotes from Earl Nightingale said:
“Success is simply a matter of luck, ask any failure”
So before you decided that it is time to quit, that there is no sense in continue on the battle, that simply it is too much, stop for a moment and think how your favorite hero would have done. After you get that clear image, remember that you are also a hero for someone, and act accordingly.
