Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts. (Winston Churchill, World War II British prime minister)

Every athlete or team that has won a championship can attest to Churchill’s statement. A year after a championship win, people cannot tell you who won last year’s contest. And the athletes are working hard for another victory. Even last year’s losing team doesn’t give up; they are working hard for a win this year. We would all do well to keep on striving for wins in life.

Don’t you realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So, run to win! (1 Corinthians 9:24)
