When you reach a certain level of skill or success, you may
come up with the notion of ‘holding onto’ or maintaining your
My opinion of this is similar to that of General George S. Patton,
who once said in a speech:
“I don’t want to get any messages saying, “I am holding my position.”
We are not holding a Goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that.
We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding
onto anything, except the enemy’s balls. We are going to twist his
balls and kick the living shit out of him all of the time. Our basic
plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless
of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy.
We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like
shit through a tin horn!”
How’s that for graphic?
Keep this message in mind whenever you feel that you’ve made it.
You may have reached a certain milestone – but success is a journey.
Once you cross the finish line – if you stop moving, you’re soon dead.
You need NEW finish lines. New goals. New aspirations. New ways of
Never rest on your laurels. Challenge yourself. Exceed your previous best.
Reinvent yourself – over and over again.
Never fear change. Never fear becoming something better or different.
The only thing to fear is the erroneous notion that you can succeed by
maintaining what you’re doing. You succeed by constant forward movement –
not by sticking your feet in quicksand.
You may feel secure when you’re trying to maintain your position – but I assure
you that you’re losing ground. To stay above ground you must be continually
thinking, planning and moving.
And that, my friend, is the BOTTOM LINE.
