My Magic Is Never Giving Up !
Practice not giving a fuck about a few things from the first category, then slowly make your way to turning down friends and lastly, once you feel ready, take on the big ones. Remember to generalize your excuses to make your decision seem less personal and always be polite and respectful.
My magic is never giving up !
Look in the mirror of my mindTurning the pages of my lifeWalking the path so many paced a million timesDrown out the voices in the airLeaving the ones that never caredPicking the pieces up and building to the sky
I find it hard to tell you how I want to run awayI understand it always makes you feel a certain wayI find a balance in the middle of the chaosSend me up send me downSend me never demigod
"I always appreciate guys not giving up," Lakers coach Luke Walton said. "If you're up or down 20, a NBA game is never over. We gave ourselves a chance and unfortunately they hit some shots that took the lead back up."
By playing defense and taking better care of the basketball, Indiana managed to withstand a dreadful shooting drought early in the second half without giving up the lead. The same combination allowed the Pacers to pull away late.
Indiana's defense then held tight until Stephenson ended the drought with a circus jumper that banked in as he drew a foul on Victor Oladipo. Stephenson made the free throw to give Indiana a 63-58 lead and the Magic never got another chance to tie it.
That saw Siggy stay third in the running, with a 36-point deficit to make up on Jajovski, so the Race at Home Challenge winner will be looking to dip into a bit of his Formula E esports magic with the destination of the Gen2 drive still to be decided. He won't give up the chase lightly, and he's feeling good around rFactor 2's new Rome circuit.
One day I said to him as you do in relationships, "We'll sort it. I'll go into work and just ask for a year off." Thinking that they would never give me a year off but that was just when the whole diversity thing was kicking in. They said, "Yeah. Take a year off."
One day I was on the tube and I was like, "Something's got to give. I can't do all of these things." I never wanted to start my own company. I never thought of myself as an entrepreneur. Even now, I don't think of myself as an entrepreneur. I just decided and got off the tube, rang my husband and said, "Hey, I'm packing my job in." He was like, "Oh my God."
Karen: It's pretty interesting. We were talking about it because you've signed yourself around the company in your 20s. I never would have imagined that. When I was in my early 20s, my mother died and I had to leave university, go back home, and I went to work. I just wanted security at that point in my life. I felt very alone. I'm working for somebody else and them paying me money was just to me, [it was] just the greatest thing ever.
We were watching the numbers on Shopify and we were crunching the numbers on what our app could do. We were looking at the science of that and we knew that we needed to get over there. When we hit the market, it was interesting for us coming from a different community into Shopify and really learning how the Shopify ecosystem works and the needs of Shopify merchants, because it is different. Shopify does think differently, but there's a magic in that as well.
I'll say that you've got to give away the things you're best at, which is kind of weird as well. Me giving up engineering was a big challenge because that is my happy place. But you can't steer a ship and be down rowing underneath. There's a certain point regarding staff where you have to accept that you can't always stand next to them all the time, because you've got to set out a strategy.
In terms of shipping itself, the experience in the checkout has never been more important. As consumers we need to know when that parcel is going to arrive, otherwise we're not going to purchase it. It's as simple as that.
When you're in a business, keep your head down and stay away from the lights and shiny Just try and stay who you are as much as you can. Be humble and respect other people. Sometimes people let their egos get in the way of the business and that's never good for the business.
There's too much pressure nowadays to just keep climbing the next mountain. Sometimes the mountain's got a great view. Maybe you should stay there. We are figuring that out. I am a person that keeps looking to the next mountain, so I should preach this to myself. I will say I have a good reason to do that, because it's disruptive. Keep climbing. You have to find where's good because otherwise you're never happy. I see that with a lot of entrepreneurs where they're never truly happy.
With no prior history, I was diagnosed with colitis in 1968 whileon active duty with the Navy. After being admitted three times to Navalhospitals, I was discharged from active duty July 16, 1969 after seven yearsand eleven months. After my discharge, I was admitted to the VA hospital inMiami, Florida, three times with flare ups for colitis. At the time I thoughtthe doctors were being too brutally honest with me by saying that nothingmore could be done for my ulcerative colitis. I went home to Troy, New York,looking for some hope. I was a very sick young man that had just lost amilitary career, had a child die and was at the end of a marriage. I thoughtall this helped to contribute to my hospitalizations. I was admitted to theVA Hospital in Albany, New York, in January of 1970. During this time I wastaking 120 mg. of Valium a day with increasing dosages. Towards the end ofMarch the pain was constant, never ceasing. I thought about suicide by drugoverdose. I weighed 112 pounds and could not walk. The only thing I could dowas smoke cigarettes and drink water. I finally heard the magic word"Ileostomy." The operation was the only chance for me to get myhealth back. Surgery was performed on March 31, 1970. A chance for life.
What has kept me going is my belief in a power greater thanmyself. The night I got arrested, I was driving to Wyoming to make a drugdeal with a briefcase full of drugs, a gun in my boot and high on cocaine andalcohol. I prayed to God for help. "Help me, not this out of controldrug addict and alcoholic". Three hours later I was arrested and havenever once turned back on my answered prayers.
To this day I'm thankful that my sister and aunt never gaveup on me. I know I have deeply hurt them and my children who I love so muchin ways I never thought possible. There is a line in the AA (AlcoholicAnonymous) book that says "The alcoholic is like a tornado roaringthrough the lives of others." I didn't realize the devastation Ihad caused. In time I hope that my family can forgive me.
I have only thing to say to others is, "Don't give up onyourself or others." Challenge yourself! You can do it if you set yourmind to it. Be kind to yourself and stop beating yourself up over things thatyou have no control. If you have any problems or know of anyone that needshelp, contact the American Cancer Society, Crohn's Colitis Foundation orthe United Ostomy Association. Help others through this ordeal with thegiving of your heart. One of the most important things is to seek outprofessional help to start a life long path to recovery. 041b061a72
