Perseverance, determination, and persistence are key traits that come in handy in life. Making big goals is very easy, it’s worse with their accomplishment. Sometimes we lack motivation and we give up easily. We put ourselves off with even minor failures instead of fighting to get what we want.
The road to success is paved with many failures. Many times you need to take a step back in order to move two steps forward. When we say we “give up”, someone else thinks “what an opportunity” and tries to get what we gave up trying to reach. Heather Dorniden is an exceptionally talented runner. In the final college Championship (in 2008) she was leading in a 600 meter run. Suddenly she regrettably tripped and fell. One of her competitors almost stepped on her face. Many people in her situation would break down and give up, but she pulled herself together and returned to the competition. It paid off! Heather won the race with great style. Watch what happened.
