Motivational Quote - Fall seven times.  Stand up eight.

SparkPeople's Comments

Your goals – if worthwhile – will not come easy. There is no accomplishment without work, and no “win” without something to beat. It’s easy to get discouraged when roadblocks appear-it’s only natural. You’ve invested time and emotion into creating the perfect plan, and then something has to come along and muck it all up. Sometimes, though, all you have to do to beat that barrier is to get back up and move forward again. Goal obstacles are like the Wizard of Oz – they’re a lot less intimidating once you see them up close. Next time you take a step back, don’t let guilt pile it on top of your previous “stumbles”. Just take two steps forward and you’re still further along than you were before. It doesn’t matter how many walls you face. You only have to get the better of that last one.

Don't quit. Determination is the best key to make it forward. When we fall down, get up and start all ovr again. Remember the race is not to the swift but to those who endure.

Perserverance is not my strong suit, so this quote is a keeper for me.

For many years I worried about my weight. Now I know that with self motivation I can do it. This article said it all. Sometimes we just need to remember to put one foot in front of the other and if we slide backwards just climb the rope again!

Great!
If we keep pushing forward, we will win.
One step at a time, but keep moving forward.

don't let guilt pile up on your previous stumbles. This is a good reminder to keep on going. The goal obstacles are a lot less intimidating when you see them up close. This is so true to be persistent and just around the corner is the goal. So don't give up

Another great way to say: Try, try again. Never give up. Put one foot in front of the other. Thank you
