“Losers quit when they fail. Winners fail until they succeed.”
I understand. I understand how it feels to be beat down time and time again, forcing yourself to get back up. I understand the exhaustion and demotivation, the fear of repeating the same errors, the confusion, the frustration and the endless irony and injustice that the world seems to keep spewing at you.
I understand because I’ve been there, and occasionally I still find myself there. Yet I still find the strength to get up and keep going, a skill I never thought I’d be able to hone. I’ve discovered what gives me the strength to just keep looking ahead and not even glancing backwards for a second. The secret is that I’ve stopped waiting to feel motivated. Motivation will never just show up, no matter how much you’ve been searching. It’s being productive that keeps me going, because either way, win or lose, I will see results, and I would’ve learned something that will make me prosper.
