Never Say Never?

The title of this post seems to be in direct conflict with something Winston Churchill said.  “Never give in!  Never give in!  Never, never, never, never–in nothing great or small, large or petty.  Never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.”

His point is well taken when it comes to you forging ahead toward your goals in life.  But, even Churchill had his limits at embracing the idea of never giving up.  His lesson to you is, if the pursuit of your goals is going to compromise your honor or would not exhibit good sense you should reconsider.

After all…all you really have when all is said and done is your honor.  Compromise honor for your goals and your achievements are empty and fill you with a hollow sense of loss rather than victory.  Finally, if your actions are senseless, your results will risk your credibility.  You can’t have honor without credibility.

Never forget that!
