"All humans seek the illusive touch of another's Soul, which opens us to the sense of belonging to something bigger than the self. Dr. Kortsch has given us the true "tao" of relationship in this brilliant exploration of emotional tapestry. We will be grateful for this illumination of spiritual partnership for generations to come." Chris Griscom, Spiritual Leader, Author

"Eloquent and comprehensive, showing how your primary love relationship may be a sacred vessel that transports you and your partner to a place of mutual healing and expansion." Robert Schwartz, Author: Your Soul's Gift: The Healing Power of the Life You Planned Before You Were Born

"The Tao of Spiritual Partnership is a unique blend of wit and wisdom; Dr. Kortsch encourages us to take responsibility for our relationships, while recognizing and seizing the opportunities for our own personal spiritual growth." William Buhlman, Author of Adventures Beyond the Body

Throwing in the Towel

You've tried so hard. You're at the end of your wits. Nothing you have done has taken you to the result you were reaching for. You have worked hard. You have implemented change and innovation. You have stuck to your guns and forsaken even much of your free time in order to continue pushing at your goal. You've persevered. You've been determined. You've motivated yourself day after day, and you've done just about everything you can think of doing in order to achieve the result you desire. You've emulated your role models. You've studied and learned and perfected. And yet ... it keeps eluding you. You are on the verge of throwing in the towel.

So motivate yourself some more:
  • There is not failure except in no longer trying. Elbert Hubbard
  • It's always too soon to quite! Norman Vincent Peale
  • The difference between success and failure is not giving up. Steven Redhead
  • He has no talent at all, that boy! You, who are his friend, tell him, please, to give up painting. Manet to Monet, on Renoir
  • Success is not final; failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. Winston Churchill
  • Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure. Napoleon Hill
And please: before throwing in that towel, think of Rafael Nadal who shot up to #1 in tennis, had setbacks, and physical challenges, and then shot back up to #1 again, had more physical challenges, fell to #4, and is now doing his utmost, not only not throwing in the towel, but believing in himself and moving forward. Do you think it is easier for him because he has already attained such fame, such accolades, such prestige, so much money? Think again. He has to fall down and get up again in the eyes of the entire world. All you have to do is fall - relatively - privately and get up - relatively - privately. 

So what was that you were saying about throwing in the towel?
