26 Quotes about Never Giving Up


Have you ever had a goal that you felt you wanted so badly?  Badly enough that deep down, you knew you were meant to have.  This is it.  You were meant for this.  So you develop a plan, a great plan.  You smile as you start seeing yourself achieving this goal, your dream.  You have all the details laid out, simple right?

Wrong.  Life’s road is filled with bumps, valleys and mountains.  Having a dream, setting goals does not guarantee its success.  You will be challenged, you will experience frustration and the journey won’t always be short.

So what do you do, Give Up?

When it gets hard, that is when you need to keep going.
