The words were very fitting when trying to find a gift for the entrepreneur business man who has everything. He immediately placed it on his desk as he began pondering his next big venture! I used express shipping and the product was scheduled to deliver on time. UPS however made a mistake when out to deliver but other than that it would have arrived on time. None the less the gift was encouraging and appreciated. I will definitely use this service again when trying to find the perfect gift for that hard to buy for individual. Thank you UG!

I love the sentiment, I like the product, I don't like the price. I think that [$] is too much for a small paperweight. I hope that the gift goes over because it's the thought that counts, but it's so small that it doesn't look like I spent more than $10-$15 dollars.

          When my son opened this, it stopped all the other unwrapping and started a discussion amongst everyone on what they would do if they couldn't fail.

              Great gift box. Slightly bigger than expected, but not as big as a similar version I got elsewhere a number of years ago (for a lesser price). Thus, it is spendy, but I think it was worth it.

                This is more than just a paper weight, and has a very powerful question for young people to always have on their minds.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was prompt and packaged very carefully.

                When I saw the saying, I instantly said to a close friend, OMG this was made for my older son. I always taught both my children there's no such thing as giving up, or you can't do it, it just isn't possible, I taught them there's always a way to do whatever your dreams are, you just have to work harder if it doesn't work out the 1st time, and if you want it bad enough, keep listening to your heart, and you WILL find a way for all your dreams to come true.

                  IThis was a gift and the verse itself had meaning so that is why I purchased the item. It is nice, however the scripted font could be a bit larger. Still a very nice item.

                    I got this as a 2 year anniversary gift for my S.O. He is a very driven, independent attorney with an enormous amount of passion for his career. Needless to say, this was the PERFECT gift for him and he loves it!! It is simply stated but profound and thought provoking. It is very sleek, of good quality, and one of a kind!
