Testimony to the 100,000+ people who took the time to 'share a little love' and recognise those fantastic local businesses nationwide, during the 14 Days Of Love campaign and Bolton people were no exception, voting for great businesses through thebestof bolton

So often, so many people will discourage rather than encourage, even if only out of fear that they might succeed!

A person with passion and a clear mission, will achieve great things so long as they do not allow themselves to be de-railed by pessimists, ill wishers or simply those who don't have the courage to try.

Nothing worth doing was ever achieved without a little effort but so often today people believe they have a right to success, rather than having to work for it.

Great businesses are lead by great people, people who at one time or another, I'm sure have encountered those who would discourage rather than encourage. Those who put great effort into achieving success will always be rewarded.

If you ever consider starting your own business, going it alone and carving a niche for yourself and you believe in what you want to do, then just do it! Edgar Guest sums it up quite eloquently below...


It Couldn't Be Done

Edgar Guest


Somebody said that it couldn't be done,

But he with a chuckle replied

That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one

Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.

So, he buckled right in with the trace of grin

On his face, if he worried he hid it.

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn't be done as he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;

At least no one has ever done it";

But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,

And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.


With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,

Without any doubting or quiddit,

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn't be done as he did it.


There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,

There are thousands to prophesy failure;

There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,

The dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,

Just take off your coat and go to it;

Just start to sing as you tackle the thing

That "cannot be done" and you'll do it.
