1.You are so close to success: Often times when we give up, we are only some few breaths away from success. This is not new, you have been told several times and I am emphasizing it again. Success is just around the corner, keep going. Where you are now is just a bend and not the end of the road. Keep going, don’t stop.
2.You have it in you to be successful: You are a strong person. You are stronger than all the setbacks you have experienced. Those problems are dying to see you give up but you have kept going and you have it in you to keep going. What is left for you to face is not up to what you have alrady faced. Keep pressing forward.
3.Winston Churchill: Like Winston Churchill, your life is different from that of your father. You don’t have to die early like your parents did and you don’t have to go through hardship simply because it has become a norm in you household. Winston’s father, Lord Randolph Churchill died on 24 January 1895, aged 45, leaving Churchill with the conviction that he too would die young and so should be quick about making his mark on the world but it was not so. Winston Churchill died on Sunday 24 January 1965, 70 years to the day after his father’s death.
4.Abraham Lincoln: From a humble begining he bacame the 16th president of the united states. He had made a living spiltting wood for fire and rail fencing. He has also worked as a shopkeeper, postmaster, and eventually general store owner. He later became a lawyer, teaching himself the law by reading Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England. Who would have thought at the time he was still growing in indiana. Your past will not determine your future. That you came out with third class degree does not mean you willnot succeed. That you failed the employment tests will not prevent you from being an employer. Keep moving towards your dream.
5.Orprah Winfrey: Born in rural poverty, then raised by a mother on welfare in a poor urban neighborhood, Winfrey became a millionaire at age 32 when her talk show went national. At age 41, Winfrey had a net worth of $340 million. Forbes’ international rich list has listed Winfrey as the world’s only black billionaire from 2004 to 2006 and as the first black woman billionaire in world history. As at August 2011, she was listed as the 14th most powerful woman in the world. You can also rise above your limitations and go on to rule the world.
6.You are not the first to experience this: This phase in your life has been experienced by someone before. It is not a new thing. So brace yourself and continue going forward, if one person has scaled through beforw, so you can.
7.To disappoint the Haters: I love this. There will always be people who are waiting to see you fail. Don’t humour them. Don’t give up. Even after that setback, keep going. Don’t give them reason to be happy. It’s your life, live it. It’s not about their beliefs. They believe it can’t be done or you can’t do it, it does not matter. What matters is what you believe.
8.For the sake of your children and family: What example or legacy do you want to leave behind? Someone that gives up, loses hope or someone who is a go getter? Persist because of them, you might read more, try another approach or enroll for that examination again. Be successful not because of you alone but because you want to help the people you love and provide them with a great life and example.
9.For yourself (Put your name): Yes keep going for your self. For your self worth, prove to yourself that you can do it. Prove to youself you have the tenacity and doggedness to keep going. You have to be able toprove to yourself that you don’t give up. Let you daily watchword be “Never ever give up”. Write down what you will want the world to say about you and keep going to achieve it.
10.I belive you will get there: You should keep going because I believe you will be successful. I know that if you keep at it, then your success is eventually going to come. There is always a “YES” behind every “NO”, Keep going to get that YES and your Success.
