18 Quotes On Perseverance To Overcome Any Obstacle

Sometimes things don’t go exactly the way we expected, but we shouldn’t let failure and mistakes discourage us. And we should never lose confidence. In fact, the biggest mistake one can make is giving up on something after having worked hard on it, just because it seems too difficult or too time consuming to achieve. The secret is to keep going without wondering too much about how we will get to the end. This makes things easier, and helps save time and useless efforts.

I have a good example of someone who didn’t let anything stop or discourage him. His name is Nick Vujicic. Have you ever heard of him? Nick Vujicic is one of the most famous motivational speaker in the world, he’s an author, musician, actor, and his hobbies include fishing, painting and swimming. He also graduated from Griffith University when he was 21 with a Bachelor of Commerce, with a double major in accountancy and financial planning. He is a brilliant, inspiring and successful individual, not only for his fame and all his qualities, but for having achieved everything without arms and legs, without giving up.

Can you imagine the strength and the tenacity of someone who accomplished all this without limbs? This shows you that you can do a lot in your life, you can achieve whatever you want if you strongly commit to it, whatever adversity you face. Don’t be scared if it takes time to reach your goals, and don’t be scared if it seems difficult. If you work on it slowly, step by step, believing in it, you will do a great job.

How many times do we wonder why many people succeed, while we just lead our normal lives, and never stand out of the crowd? The answer is that perseverance is what makes the difference, and Nick Vujicic is the best example of it. We should observe this exceptional person, and we should follow in his footsteps. For this reason, I have collected the 18 best motivational quotes ever about perseverance and determination, to inspire you, and help you have the strength to overcome any obstacle you may encounter.
