" Okay. That sounds good. Let's continue with the note here. This quote by Einstein could likely be a way to inspire people to keep trying and not give up. Yeah on its surface it definitely does sound that way. Even when you encounter difficulties if you persist, you know you keep pushing you don't give up. You may succeed in the end. Yeah and this is definitely true for a lot of inventors, people who discover things. A lot of times they fail many many times before they actually succeed in the end. So this is kind of a thought for a lot of people who are geniuses or inventors, they don't always succeed right away. Of course Einstein may also simply be stating a fact. it is only when you officially give up and quit that one must admit they did not succeed at something. Yeah you know, he was he was a very, you know , very simple man in that way, but he thought that way. But let's continue. Sometimes you have a good or justifiable reason for giving up. In business sometimes you hear the phrase to cut your losses. So giving up even though giving up sounds bad, sometimes it's not always bad. Like in the case of business where you tried something . And you gave it a good shot but it's really just not working out. You see it's not working out and the possibility of the future just seems like it's not worth it. Sometimes it is better to we say to cut your losses maybe the wise thing at that point sometimes is to give up. So giving up is not always terrible. Let's continue. Which could be good advice if something is not working out and it doesn't appear to have future potential . Let's continue. On the other hand I am also reminded of the quote from Yogi Berra, a famous a ballplayer, coach and manager. He used the quote , "it ain't over until it's over. " You know talking about a sports event. you know, until the like in baseball until the last out is caught or you know maybe the time runs out in basketball or in American football, You know until it's really finished maybe the game is not completely lost. Well here of course in American baseball, if you don't give up even though you may be very far behind and victory looks bleak, you know it doesn't look like there is a possibly that things will work out , that they can be successful. Sometimes you can still pull a victory from the jaws of defeat. Yeah there's many, many examples I've seen this happen throughout my life, especially by watching baseball. You know there have been times where you know a team could be behind by like 10 runs, but usually it would be early in the game. But sometimes they could still come back to win. I have see it. doesn't happen most of the time but once in a while every once in a while you see something like this happen. It kind of amazes you what it does actually happen. I could remember also when I was a kid I think it was in 1973 I think Yogi Berra was actually the manager of the Mets during that time where I think they were in last place in the middle of the season. Now they were lucky because I think there were only like seven or eight games on first place but every team was very very close so they had a very good winning streak at the end of the year and they actually won. They won the pennant. Where it almost seemed impossible you know team that's in the last place during the middle of the season, you always figured well they get they don't have any chance to come back. So this is how this is often used and that now this it ain't over till it's over. I've seen some people also use another one also in regard to the Mets I think 1986 when they were playing the Red Sox it also has to do with like the Red Sox curse. This also like continued Red Sox curse. The the Mets had a great season that year those I think the best season they ever had. think they won almost hundred and ten games or something like that. And they made it to the World Series . It was the World Series, the Mets against the Red Sox. But the the Red Sox were up three games to two so it was down to just this last game. It was the bottom of the ninth bottom of the ninth inning I think and they were down to one out. They got the first two guys out and I think the Red Sox were hit by two runs and it looked like you know the Red Sox just needed one more out and finally you know they thought they broke their curse at that time. and then it didn't happen. A guy got a single and another guy got a hit and then and then they were and then there was the big error where a ground ball was hit and it should have been an easy play but the first baseman who was normally a very good fielder, I don't know I guess he got distracted and the ball went right through his legs and they ended up losing it. So sometimes you just never know as long as you just never give up maybe a lot has to be on your side sometimes too. But you never know again. You never fail until you stop trying. Or sometimes it ain't over until it's over. Okay anyway. I hope you got it. I hope it was inspiring. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
