The Encouragement You Need To Press Higher:The Don't Quit Poem

When life hits you hard and your bright dreams and aspirations appear blight, what do you do? Life is not always rosy; we all know and, will never be. Many of us have goals we set out to achieve only to stop halfway for several reasons. Some have stopped short because they got discouraged down the lane. Discouragement due to lack of fund to implement their goals or wrong decisions they made
which didn’t materialise the way they’d expected. Whatever the reason may be, they stopped. They quit. And that’s the problem.

Our response to obstacles matter a lot. They may be the difference between success and failure. One thing that has stood out through the ages, and still remains true till today is that he who has found the right thing to do and does it consistently without quitting, will succeed. To quit is to fail. And you wonder why so many had not been successful?

Years ago I visited a friend in his school who introduced me to the most powerful poem I’ve ever read on success. The poem is so empowering and inspiring that I thought I’d be doing a great injustice to humanity- and to you too- if I refuse to share.

You may have been down and discouraged and need the right word to get up and live your dream. That right word may be what you are about to read.

Enjoy to the full.

The Don’t Quit Poem

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the roads you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many fellow turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out,
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
And the learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit,
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit,

I hope you are blessed as I was the first day I came in contact with this poem- I still am though. In that same concept of helping humanity, share this work with your friends- that may be the help they look out for.

After all, a friend in need is a friend indeed.
