Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

Keep going

Some days it’s difficult to see the progress you’re making. Some days it may even seem that you’re moving backwards. Keep going. The moment you’ve been working toward gets ever closer as you move persistently through each day.

Each effort, whether you can see it or not, moves you forward. Even the seeming failures make you stronger and push you in the direction of your goal.

Those who keep going only when the going is good, will never make it all the way. The value of achievement is built upon the difficulties you must cross through in order to reach it.

Keep going not only when the going is good. Persist in your efforts even when they seem to be pointless, even when you cannot feel any progress. For the progress is most certainly there. Keep going, and you will surely see it soon enough.

— Ralph Marston
