Tough times never last but tough people do

Heather Frame - Wednesday, November 13, 2019

There’s no doubt about it life can be a great adventure.  But sometimes, life can throw you some real challenges as well.

So, if you’re facing some challenges now, if things aren’t all rosy like it is on facebook, then this message is for you… 

We hear from a lot of business owners who are doing it tough.  So, we thought we’d share with you some of what we often tell those who are doing it tough around us.

First, we tell them they are not alone.  And despite what you see on facebook, nobody’s life is perfect.  Fact is, we all have our battles.  We also tell these people about a book we’ve read that helped us get through the tough times.

It’s called ‘Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do’.  It’s chock full of old-world, common sense wisdom that really packs a punch.

One line from the book that really resonates with us is 

“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: You Haven’t!”

So even though things might seem really bad, you are not beaten until you give up.  There is always something you can do.

Fact is, all of us get challenged.  All of us will encounter some kind of tragedy in our lives.  However, it’s our ability to pull ourselves up off the canvas and take another swing that will determine if we get through or not.

So when things are bad, we tell ourselves ‘Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do.’

It’s a great mantra to take to heart.  We wish you well in your business and life.

Just remember, ‘Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do.’

And also, ‘When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this: You Haven’t!’
