Need Some Motivation For Not Giving Up?

What many of those who quit too soon don’t realize, is that they do have what it takes.  They have what it takes, because there is a second wind that exists in all of us.  A reserve of energy and enthusiasm that exists even when we feel like we have nothing left to give.  But, the only way to tap this reserve, is by deciding to keep moving forward in the face of adversity.  To choose to not give up, to try one more time, and just push through the pain!

Our hope, is that these motivational quotes about not giving up, will give you enough of a spark to get you past your slump.  Because it is past that slump where all the magic happens.  It is beyond that slump, where your success will be found.
