Perseverance - Don't Give Up

What's the one thing you want most? Chances are you're going to fail.

The question is: When you fail, will you quit?

Because chances are that no matter how smart and hard you work, barriers will stop you in your tracks. People will doubt you and refuse to support you. Mistakes will be made. Unexpected problems will arise. You'll feel the pain of discouragement and failure. Probably over and over again.

But will you give up on your dream?

You see, you have within you - right now - the potential to be strong in so many different ways. To work harder. To take chances. To think creatively. To be patient. To keep your composure.

"“Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.” - Langston Hughes

When you feel discouragement, don't focus on it. Let it pass. Then do the hard things and keep trying. Move forward, fail again, and keep trying.

Thank you also for the wonderful quote from Langston Hughes.
