”Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
Some days you just have that feeling of defeat and you feel like you have invested so much time and energy into something that hasn’t given you the return that you thought you would receive or at least not in the amount of time you thought it would take and it sucks. Thinking to yourself ‘I really don’t think I can do this’ is a crushing feeling. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and realize just how far you have come and not how far you still have to go. Recognize the success of things you have achieved to get to where you are now. Even though you may think you have only done a couple small things but nothing close to what you thought you would by now remember that it’s all those small things combined that help you reach that end goal.
Being realistic and patient is hard especially since we live in a right now world and hear so many stories about other people who have reached similar goals so must faster, but being realistic and patient are key for success. You will never know how close you were to succeeding if you give up and there’s only one way to find out.. keep going.
