Towel Throwing

You started and then what happened?

It got harder than you expected.

It looked different from the inside looking out than the outside looking in.

The other guy got a head start.

You drilled a dry hole.

You found out that skill development was greater than your natural gifting(s). That frustrated you.

You fouled out.

Someone said no.

You got hung up on.

Dealer was showing ace. You had a pair of 8’s.

You pulled a hammy.

You got writers block.

You needed sleep.

You had to work on the weekends.

And so forth…

I would estimate that 9 out of 10 people throw the towel in on 9 out of 10 things they start to do or try to create.


Simple answer – it’s easier to quit.

It’s easier to claim the dream wasn’t real.

Everyone loves the talk of getting married.

Where’s the discussion on being married?

Look at those who you call a hero and companies/churches you consider to be heroic.

Chances are they’re holding on to most of the towels that had the chance to be thrown in at some point in time.
