The Monday Morning WHIP // 97

Aw, Stan (http://branddna NULL.blogspot NULL.com). He always knows how to hit the spot.

When I was a kid, many many years ago, rainy afternoons were often spent in front of the telly, watching old black and white movies.

I can’t recall too many of the films we used to watch, but one I do remember is Swing Time which starred Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Yes kids, I really am that old. Well not that old, but you know what I mean.

Anyway, one of the highlights of Swing Time was the song Pick Yourself Up. And whenever things go astray, at work or at home, I often find myself singing a verse from the song that has somehow embedded itself into my subconscious. It goes like this:

Nothing is impossible I have found,
For when my chin is on the ground,
I pick myself up,
Dust myself off,
And start all over again.

Of course you may think it’s easy for me to sit here quoting Fred Astaire songs to you, but if you’re feeling down or dejected or on the verge of giving up, check out this list (http://www NULL.onlinecollege NULL.org/2010/02/16/50-famously-successful-people-who-failed-at-first/) of fifty well known people who went on to achieve success after failing at first.

Then pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again.
