If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.

Keep going

If you’ve already achieved some success today, keep going. Build on that momentum and you’ll achieve even more. If you’ve known nothing but frustration and disappointment today, keep going. Change your approach based on what you’ve learned and you’ll get yourself where you want to go.

Through it all, keep going. The only way to lose is to give up. The only way to win is to persist. It’s a clear choice. You can give up now, you can settle for less, or you can continue for as long as it takes to achieve what you’ve set out to achieve.

Time will pass no matter what you do. Time will keep on going. Your best strategy is to keep on going, too. Make use of every moment.

When you’re exhausted, get some rest. Then get back up and keep on going. You are destined to make things happen. You are here to make a difference. Keep on going, and in the persistence of your efforts, you’ll find a level of joy and fulfillment that you otherwise could not know.
