All or Nothing Day – July 26

ALL OR NOTHINGMeant to be motivational, All or Nothing Day reminds us that to be successful at anything, you have to give it everything you’ve got.

Never give up.

When you devote yourself to something and give it your all, you can expect to see results.

When you do not give it your all, you may not see the results you expect, which can be the same as doing nothing.

This reminds us of the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley:

Out of the night that covers me,
      Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
      For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
      I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
      My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
      Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
      Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
      How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
      I am the captain of my soul.
