To me, this powerful proverb expresses the simple need to give 100% effort every time. Even if you fail again and again you should never simply give up on life. Never allow yourself to prematurely accept defeat without giving it your A game first. Keep a positive mentality about you and always know that you are a divine being of love and creation, if you want it you can manifest it. Many people submit before they even began trying, like how some people hate Sushi even if they've never tried it before. Don't just watch the world from the sidelines because you're afraid of failing, step into the ring and become a competitor. As long as it won't bring you or others harm, go for it and go all the way. If you meet resistance, redirect your energy, just don't stop. Swim down every river, if the flow is blocked, find a new stream. Seek the path that brings you the most happiness and success - and you will succeed in being happy! Never hold yourself back from your full potential.
Sip with a smile,
