    I really like this quote. Often times people give up on something and look back at it like i should have pushed a little harder and often regret ever giving up. You can prevent the feeling of regret and the “woulda coulda shoulda’s”. I like to finish everything i start for my own self satisfaction. Things get tough and you might fall a couple times before you reach a goal. But how will you ever learn, grow, and mature if you quit when things get tough? Some of the greatest success stories come from the hardest falls.

    This quote reigns true for me and a lot of other people in the world, When you get so close to something lets say for example in competition, the sting of defeat hurts a lot more when you get so close to your goal, only to come up short, The only real way to get past this, at least to me, is to find a silver lining to learn some sort of important lesson, so that you don’t make that kind of mistake again, it will still hurt a lot, but if you can do that, it will hurt a lot less.
