All week I’ve been having conversations with people who are trying to make things happen for themselves and feel like they should just give up. They’re frustrated they don’t have the support of friends and family that they expected; their funds are uncertain or nearly obsolete; they’re having trouble simply believing in themselves and their abilities.

It’s a dark place to be in, and one many will be in possibly many different times as they take leaps of faith, step out of their comfort zones, and try to create opportunities for themselves and impart change. And so, if you are on the brink of giving up, or don’t know how you can go on, be encouraged by these words and keep persevering.

“Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.’

-Barack Obama

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

-Nelson Mandela

‘Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.’

-Calvin Coolidge

“Grit is that ‘extra something’ that separates the most successful people from the rest. It’s the passion, perseverance, and stamina that we must channel in order to stick with our dreams until they become a reality.”

-Travis Bradberry

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

-Thomas Edison

“A failure is not always a mistake. It may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.”

-B.F. Skinner

“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you … never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”

-Harriet Beecher Stowe

“I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything, even nature.”

-John D. Rockefeller

“You never know what’s around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you’ve climbed a mountain.”

– Tom Hiddleston

“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.”

-Abraham Lincoln

“Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.”

-Charles Jones

“Failure is a bend in the road, not the end of the road. Learn from failure and keep moving forward.”

-Roy T. Bennett

“The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems.”

-Mahatma Gandhi

“In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”

-Anthony Robbins
