Book Overview

Never Give Up: Stories of Grit, Determination, Tenacity and Triumph.

By Dr. Teri Rouse with Dick Vitale and other Professionals from around the world.

Success lies somewhere between surrender and celebration. As there is no algorithmic formula to assure success, we resort to using our best judgement to pursue our goals. Along the way when the going gets difficult, many people tend to ‘give up’. Giving up is a posture that is easy to adopt, but perseverance to achieve success seldom fails.

Success and accomplishment are invariably tied together with a Never Give Up attitude. For the determined, the word “quitting” is not even a part of their vocabulary. The more successful amongst us learn, plan and continue to execute well-thought-out strategies regardless of frustrations, failures, or personal hardships. However, the addition of a “secret sauce” to obtain faster and better results – a catalyst for success – is the amazing ingredient of mentoring.

We can always improve our efficiency to attain goals by applying the experience of a mentor. The Celebrity Experts(R) in this book who have achieved their successes through ‘not giving up’ can help and guide you. Their knowledge can offer not only great ideas that work, but also, just as importantly, those that did not.

We all wish to accomplish our goals. When we are willing to apply the factors of planning, perseverance and mentoring to our goal-attainment procedure, we are likely to see the success to which we aspire.
