So what do Abraham Lincoln and Curtis Mayfield have in common? Other than being American icons for supporting human rights in very different arenas, they also both passionately believed in continuing whatever you do until you’ve done it.
I recently read an inspiring blog by Jim Connolly called ‘Keep On’ and it made me think about how in their own ways Abraham and Curtis’s passion inspired and empowered people to change the world.
So whatever it is you have done, if it’s worked, wonderful. If it hasn’t, learn from it. If people tell you that you shouldn’t be doing what you’re doing, consider it. If you think they’re right, change. If not, keep doing what you’re doing. As Curtis and in his own way Abraham Lincoln said, keep on keepin’ on.
