How to keep going

How do you keep going when things get rough? The same way you keep going when things are good, by simply choosing to do it.

The particular conditions of the moment are not that much of a factor. What really matters is the story you are telling yourself.

When you decide to keep going, you will. When you tell yourself that you can, you can.

Life can sometimes be discouraging, with each effort painful and each moment full of difficulty. Yet you can choose to see that difficulty as a stronger reason than ever before to keep going.

If for no other reason, you can keep going just to get some distance beyond where you are now. You can keep going because it’s what you’ve done for a long time, and you’re actually very good at it.

The way to keep going is to keep reminding yourself that you’re independent of any conditions you may face. You can keep going, because that is what you have chosen to do.
