If you're going through a tough time, keep going.

You might have heard this before:

Tough times don't last forever, tough people do.

There will come a time where you may cry and feel like you just can't do it anymore. Those days are the days that define you. Difficulties come that make you strong, but that's only when you make a decision to keep going - and you stand by it.

Don't quit.

When you give into your fears, you sentence yourself to a lifetime of failure, regret, and a situation where you begin to lose faith in yourself.

Difficulties are inevitable. Failure is inevitable. But at the end of pain, comes success.

In the 1920's when a journalist asked Thomas Edison how it felt to fail 1,000 times in his attempt to invent the lightbulb, he replied, "I didn't fail 1,000 times. The lightbulb was an invention with 1,000 steps."

What are you afraid of? What's holding you back? When everything seems to be going against you, remember that an airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

So it is with life. One day you'll tell someone else what you're going through, and they'll use it as a survival guide for their own journey.

Don't quit.
