“You have a choice. You can throw in the towel or you can use it to wipe the sweat off of your face.” Gatorade Ad
I love the simplicity of that statement. It’s a choice to continue or give up. It’s a way of approaching life that gives you power to deal with whatever shows up including both opportunities and obstacles.
I work with some people who would never throw in the towel. They roll up their sleeves, focus, and have the creative bursts that allow new energy into their performance. Giving up is not part of who they are. They achieve their goals and then wipe the sweat off of their faces. They also hand out the towels so others can do the same!
