Never Give Up

There are two people in life. Those who give up, and those who'll do anything in their power to succeed. At one point or another, life will beat you down to your knees, and it's your choice in whether you're going to let it keep you there, or get back up, and do whatever it takes to accomplish whatever it is you want to do. Everyone is capable of doing something great with their lives, but it's YOU who has to make your life worth living. When you die, do you want to be someone who is forgotten, or someone who people will be talking about 50 years later. Bill Gates didn't become the richest man in the world by sitting on the couch, and Michael Jordan didn't let his failures get in the way of becoming one of the greatest basketball players ever. Remember, YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO!!!
