When you feel like quitting, that's an opportunity to keep going. When you feel like giving up, you have it in you to step forward with renewed energy and to give more.
Giving up doesn't accomplish anything, and it doesn't make you feel any better. It just leaves you with disappointment and regret.
There's a way to keep going, and you know it. There's a way to keep going, and just imagine how great you will feel for choosing persistence.
If you're weary, stop for a short while to rest, but don't give up. Remind yourself of all the good reasons why you've chosen to move forward, and then get yourself going again.
If you wish to be free of the effort, then do what it takes to finish the effort. Make all your work count for something by bringing it to a successful conclusion.
The next step is right in front of you, and you have it in you to take that step. Keep going, fulfill your best possibilities, and you'll always be thankful for your choice to do so.
