February 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

If you watched Super Bowl last night, you would be impressed by James Harrison’s record-breaking, 100-yard interception returns. He is also NFL defensive player of the year.

But, did you know that he was cut twice by the Steelers, and cut once by Baltimore Ravens? At one point, Harrison, an undersized 6-foot, 242-pounder, considered quit and become a Greyhound bus driver.

But Harrison came back for one more try in 2004. And there was something about Harrison the Steelers liked. He had a mean streak that fit the tradition of nasty, surly, hard-hitting Steelers linebackers.

“There are 32 teams out there and as long as one likes you, you’re good,” Harrison said. “Pittsburgh liked me enough to keep bringing me back. —

Are you concerned about your jobs? Are you frustrated by your job searching process? Are you down because your own business is struggling?

It’s a difficult time for all of us. We’re all facing adversity. It’s not time to quit; it’s time to persevere. Press forward!
