How many times have you given up on something just because it took longer to accomplish than you expected?
How many times did you give up on your dreams just because you didn’t get the desired results quickly?
What’s the maximum number of attempts you have made after failure?
We all experience failures when we do something worthwhile. But what keeps us going inspite of troubles?
The famous failures of the world teaches us not to give up even when the world is against us or even if we experience failures every single day.
To get up back from failure sometimes requires a little push to remind us why we started.
With that, here are 6 persistence quotes to keep you going no matter what.
It’s difficult to succeed in any area of life until you know who you are.
That means knowing yourself better than anyone else in the world.
These days, people know everything except themselves. They don’t know what they stand for. Hence, they give up.
But when we persist inspite of difficulties, we come to know about some aspects of our life which we didn’t knew before.
And that’s how we figure out who we are and our unique strengths.
Majority of people who succeed are not because of their talent. It’s because they never give up.
Thomas Edison tried 1000 unsuccessful attempts before inventing light bulb.
Colonel Sanders failed 1009 times before starting KFC.

We all have 1 or 2 plans to make our idea a success. However, after initial few attempts, we stop creating new plans that will overcome the shortcomings of those that failed.
We keep repenting on those that failed and think that our idea is not worthy.
Let us not stop creating new plans because of previous ones that failed.
Albert Einstein said that compounding is the eighth wonder of the world.
You may feel like results are not showing up and things are taking time but on the backstage, the dots are connecting.
You may write just 300 words a day and feel like there is no progress. But if you keep doing it for 180 days, you have just written a 50000 words novel in six months. Just imagine.
Think like this when you feel like small steps are not taking you anywhere.
One of the major reason most people fail is they give up too soon.
Remember these persistence quotes next times when you feel like giving up.
Your victory is closer.
