Keep going

When you feel you can’t and you know you must, keep going. Remember why you started, remember where you’re headed, think of how great it will be to get there, and keep going.

Incredible accomplishments are regularly achieved on the other side of adversity. Push yourself through. Pull yourself through. Keep going. When you lose a little ground, use it to build even more momentum. By the time you’ve recovered lost ground, you’ll be going stronger than ever.

When you get burned out, exhausted, and just cannot take another step, rest for a little while, and then keep going. You can clear all the hurdles, if you’ll do it one by one.

Keep going, and each new step makes you stronger. Keep going, and each day brings you closer to the destination. Persistence will win the day over muscle, cleverness and starting position. Wherever you’re headed you’ll surely get there if you just keep going.

— Ralph Marston
