Quote: Giving Up Is Not an Option for the Great Ones

15

There are lots of times when we can feel like it's easier and best if we just pack it in and give up. Whether its an obstacle, adversity, or scandal off the field (hey Lance Armstrong), the most important thing is to keep swinging and never give up. Hank Aaron didn't get to be a baseball legend by throwing in the towel. Hard work pays off, no matter what's got you down.

"My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging."

Hank Aaron, Hall of Fame baseball player who became the all-time home run champion by never giving up.
