Dogged Persistence!

This Sparked Me!

Don't give up. Most failures are the result of people who quit because they don't realize how close they are to succeeding (paraphrase of a quote I read somewhere.) This particularly has applied to me in the realm of quitting smoking. I can't even remember how many times I have quit smoking "for good" but after each time I went back to it, I persistently quit again. I guess it is the same as the japanese saying "fall seven times, get back up eight"

MORE INFORMATION:
The benefits of this are you know you have done your best, no matter what. When you reach a goal you can look back and be proud of your strength and work you put into it, and use that experience to help you get through other challenges.
