We are not the only people involved in our success. Sometimes our success depends on or is compared to the success of others. When you are tempted to give up, this quote may help to remind you of reasons to keep going.
If you are in a competitive field, when you give up, it is like opening a window for someone else. You are losing your opportunity by giving one to someone else. If you aren’t in a competitive situation, this quote can still be useful. Think of all the people that are still going, even after you’ve quit. Use their persistence as motivation. No matter which situation you’re in, quitting is not an option!
