Minute Motivation- On Perseverance.
Written By Danasia Fantastic
“If you are going through hell, keep going.” – Winston Churchill. That’s the quote my cousin sent me last week after I had explained to her how overwhelmed I was feeling at the moment. We all go through times where we question what we’re striving for or what we’re working towards. I know I’ve had several moments where I just wanted to throw in the towel and give up. The quotes below are for moments like that. Perseverance is what keeps us going. It’s what keeps pushing ahead and working towards our goals and dreams.
“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”- Randy Pausche
