A poem that encourages us to never say fail. Daniel Colesworthy's poem reinforces that our attitude toward failure can play an important part in whether we succeed or we fail. Never underestimate the role that your attitude plays in determining your
perseverance and passion. Failure is too often found by people just giving up. Always remember if it was easy everyone would be doing it!!
As poet Colesworthy notes: "In storm and in sunshine, you'll onward and conquer, and never say fail."
The poet declares that onward progress in whatever one endeavors does not just take place when all is well; when everyone just seems to fall into place, and when the winds of time always blow in the right direction. The real test of perseverance occurs at
those times when the obstacles, issues, roadblocks, or failure strikes the hardest. The real sign of onward movement comes when the winds are blowing the strongest against you, not with you.
Let this famous poem be one that encourages you to keep your thoughts and actions moving with positive strides.
