There are times when one might think about quitting what they are currently doing and you may want to share this wonderful poem with them. It's important that we all understand there will be days when we feel like quitting but we must continue moving forward in order to continue growing.
I wanted to share with you a motivational poem that has inspired many people to continue on the path they are currently on.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow--
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit--
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

It is all too often that people quit before the blessing. When you go after the things you want in life you will have set backs and it will at times seem like you may never reach your destination.
There is no man that has climbed Mt Everest and said it was easy. Climbing never is and climbing is what we each do when we set a goal we wish to achieve. That is why it's easy to quit. Going downhill has always been easier than going uphill.
