It is quite easy to give up when things don’t go your way. It is even easier to leave things in a state of flux knowing that the road ahead is bumpy. But, have you ever heard the success stories of people who achieved greatness? Did they achieve it by doing things that ordinary people have done? No, they did not. The Bill Gates and the Nelson Mandelas of the world are all able to become the person they became because they chose the path less travelled, even though they knew it would be tough.

In this article, we are going to share with you some powerful quotes that will help you pick yourself up during tough times.

1. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations

Success does not come to those people who wait for it. Success comes to those who toil hard for it. It comes to the doorstep of those people who are willing to go beyond their comfort zone and strive for something beyond the usual. Like they say, the road that leads to your dreams begins right from where your comfort zone ends.

2. Forget the mistake. Remember the lesson!

We all make mistakes. The problem is not in making mistakes; it lies in repeating those mistakes over and over again. Each mistake leaves us with a lesson. A successful person is the one who is able to grab the lesson and keep it with him or her forever. So, the next time you think you have made a mistake, don’t regret it. Rather, make sure the next time such a situation arises; you won’t repeat the same thing.

3. A little progress each day adds up to big results

A popular way of expressing this quote (that you might be familiar) with goes something like this – Rome wasn’t built in a day. And, rightly so! You can only dream of overnight success, but the fact of the matter is that you have to toil hard for it. That’s how diamonds are made from coal – right? Whenever life throws some roadblocks your way, don’t stop. Keep moving forward and show life how tough you are. The taste of success after all this hard work is worth it!

4. Dream big and Dare to fall

It is our dreams that define how high a man can fly. No matter how foolish it might seem, but never underestimate the power of your dreams. As they say, the fool did it because he did not know it was impossible. Remember nothing is unachievable if you set your determination to do it. So, the next time someone says that your dreams are foolish, just smile and move on. You might fall a couple of times, but if you dare to fall, life will definitely give you an opportunity to get up and taste success!
