Don’t Quit. Recommit!

Did you know, May is National Recommitment Month? Although this national observance traditionally involves reviewing health related goals set in January, May is a great time to review the health and nature of your small business. For some, tax season is over, which makes May a great month to review business goals and recommit to those goals. What do your tax statements and filing process say about your small business? What does your small business need to recommit to?

NBIC has partnered with local leaders and organizations to help entrepreneurs recommit themselves to business systems (E-Myth), leadership (Training Series) and networking (Collab event).

Whatever your small business is recommitting to in May, remember, do not quit. Recommit! Read the poem below for instant motivation.

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
