“No matter how you feel. Get up, dress up, show up and never give up!”

"No matter how you feel. Get up, dress up, show up and never give up!” is an inspirational saying that has been printed on many images. “Sunday Morning, Get up, Dress up, Show up and Brighten up at the FIRST BAPTIST Church, HERRIN” was printed in a 1955 newspaper. The book How to Sell to an Idiot: 12 Steps to Selling Anything to Anyone (2006) applied this to business:

“It’s simple. You need to get up, dress up, show up, step up, and follow up every day. Oh, and remember to Churchill them—never give up. ”

American author and newspaper columnist Regina Brett wrote “45 reasons to say happy birthday” for The Plain Dealer (Cleveland, OH) on June 2, 2001. Brett’s follow-up column, “"45 life lessons and 5 to grow on,” on May 28, 2006, included this extra line:

“No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.”

“No matter how you feel today, get up, dress up, show up and never give up!!!” was posted on Twitter on February 11, 2011.

While corporate America has pretty well trained men to “get up, dress up, and show up,” even many of these corporate guys can’t wait to get home and get out of their “monkey suits.” Many men don’t like to dress up.
