Why think, Push? [ Persist Until Sh*t Happens]

I love mnemonics. They are catchy, quick and can snap you back into a winning mindset. Here’s one that recently came to mind. PUSH. Persist Until Shit Happens. Think of the expression “Get out there and Make Shit Happen”. Excuse the language but I tried “Special”. It didn’t seem to fit. Neither did “something”. It lacks the umph. The only word that expresses the meaning I intend is the word shit. Stephen King makes this clear in his book “On Writing”, ( A recommended read for the aspiring writer ) If you are going to say it, say it with honesty.

This all being said. If you are having a shitty day ( No pun intended …Maybe ), Or you are stuck in a rut and things aren’t going your way. Here’s a tool for your tool box. Think to yourself, I just gotta PUSH. Persist until shit happens. Hopefully, this will snap you out of it, bring the big picture back into focus and pop my favorite quote into your mind

“Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent.”

P.S.

Think of PUSH the next time you are on the can. I hope you get a good chuckle. 😉
