At time, you might feel like giving up as you embark yourself on a journey to success. You might want to give up and get back to your old mediocre life during the low time. It does happen to everyone who is endeavored to live life beyond what they are expected. At such time, we need motivation to get rid of giving up thoughts lingering over our mind and to continue our journey towards success.
Motivational quotes instill hope in us and make us come to terms with the fact that we are not alone in our journey. There are peoples in the history who were exactly in the same situation as we are in. If they are able to make it through tough time, so can we. Below are listed some of my favorite motivational quotes which you can read whenever you find yourself on the verge of giving up.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Unknown
Never stop trying until you succeed in what you are doing. Those who try always win. Trial and error is an effective strategy whereas trial and quitting will produce only one result - Failure.
No matter how many attempts you've made, no matter how many times you've failed you are destined to succeed as long as you keep trying.
All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim; have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible. Orison Swett Marden
Unless you don't have an aim or goal to work towards, you are doomed to live mediocre life. So the first thing you got to do is to decide what you want. What is your goal or aim of life? Once you've decided your goal, you need to be focused on your goal. Being focused is the key to success.
Let me illustrate my above statement with the story of Arjun and Dronacharya. Once, to test the archery skills of his students, Guru Dronacharya asked each of his students one by one to shoot on a wooden bird's eye hanging on a branch of a tree. He asks each one of his student one by one what they see as they are aiming for bird's eye and ready to shot.
Each one of them said they see everything clearly except Arjuna who said, "I can see only bird's left eye." This is called focus. He has fixed his gaze on his goals. And he succeeded in it. So the point here is make a goal and be focused on achieving it. If you are focused, then thoughts of giving up won't come your way.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every time you get knocked down, rise up with double enthusiasm. Don't hold yourself back and stop trying because you've failed. Failure is just an opportunity for it teaches you important lessons as far as success is concerned.
