Whatever your goals or dreams, do not give up. Nothing can take the place of perseverance. If you hit a setback, get back up and try again. Another setback? Adjust and try again. Life has a way of rewarding those who absolutely refuse to quit no matter what. You may need to change strategies or rethink your path, but that is part of endurance.
It’s okay to stop and breathe. Cry a little. Acknowledge how far you have come. Then get back up and start swinging again. As Brother Balboa once said, “It ain’t about how hard you can hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”
