"Never, never, never give up"

There are people in the world who accomplish great things. They become great people, inspirations to others. Many of us think that it must take a really really special person for them to get what they want out of life. That isn't the case. We can all get what we want. They say that if you want something bad enough, you will get it. Yes, you will, but don't think that its just going to take some really hard wishing, it will also include hard work. I have talked to so many people who told me that they can't become a nurse because they have kids, life is too hard. Those are excuses, anyone who wants to be a nurse, or anything else for that matter, can be what they want. It's just not going to always come easy. I know a nurse who told me that while she was in school she was working sixty hour weeks! But she made it, and she said the reason was because she always thought about the people who had it harder than her, the single moms with children and a full time job. People are accomplishing things everyday. If you are knocked down, pick yourself back up and keep working towards your goal. Like Winston Churchill said, "never, never, never give up." This is why I know that someday there will be a cure for cancer. There are people working so hard to find it. Think about all the wonderful things that have been invented. Where did the iPod come from? Someone had an idea in their mind and they never gave up on that idea. They made it work. I was reading an article about the actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (He plays in the movie Inception) and he was telling an interviewer how hard it was to make it in the acting business. He said that because he had been a child actor, people didn't want to hire him for roles. He said the even though people kept shooting him down, he would just keep going. Now he's famous, people love him as an actor. There are so many examples of people making it in this world. Success never came without a struggle. So, if you have to struggle, struggle hard, you will achieve your dreams!
