If At First Your Don’t Succeed

Mikhail MouseIt’s a philosophy we’re taught when we’re kids….never give up, always keep trying. And as we get older we sometimes either forget about this allegory, or we just give up that bit quicker than we used to. But observe “Mikhail Mouse”, a tenant in a Russian home who is the very epitome of ‘never giving up’. We can all learn something from even the smallest of our house guests.

I think what I love the most about this is that at one point he seems to just repeat and fail over and over again, kind of like what most humans do. Then he takes a wee break, looks from another angle and strategises a little. And ‘hey presto’, he runs off with the biscuit!

Even more interesting is our own attitude to “Mikhail”. Ordinarily I would have probably whacked him with a newspaper by now if I saw him in my house. But when I showed this to Herself, she was egging him on just the same way I was. 🙂

Enjoy, and remember, whatever it is you’re trying to do in life, never give up!
