Welcome to The Blogging A-Z Challenge April 2012! Some of the most popular posts here at The Shellshank Redemption are the Motivational Mondays. So, after consulting the tortoises, we decided to make April our Motivational Month! Please join us for this (almost!) daily dose of alphabetical inspiration. We hope you enjoy it!
* IF YOU STAND UP AND BE COUNTED, FROM TIME TO TIME YOU MAY GET YOURSELF KNOCKED DOWN. BUT REMEMBER THIS: A MAN FLATTENED BY AN OPPONENT CAN GET UP AGAIN. A MAN FLATTENED BY CONFORMITY STAYS DOWN FOR GOOD. (Thomas J. Watson Jr.) *
You are the only you that will ever exist. If you let yourself become just another part of the group, just another face in the crowd, the essence of who you are will be swallowed up. Sure, it might be easier to just go along, but what a waste that would be! A waste of your ideas, your thoughts, your creativity, your imagination, your dreams.
Please don’t give in.
Please don’t give up.
