Inspirational Keep Going Quotes

keep going quotesI hated every minute of training, but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”

~Muhammad Ali

This inspirational quote by Muhammad Ali is really intense and shows how much of a commitment he made to his goal of being a boxing champion.  Sometimes, people are blessed in life to have such a drive to do what they want and be what they want to be.  In this case, Ali is inferring that he didn’t ever enjoy the training that he did, but was so driven by what he hoped to get out of it that he just kept pushing himself and pushing himself until he was a champion in boxing.

I suggest you find something you like to do, and then decide to be a champion in that so it is not so arduous for you, but Ali has a point.  It is so easy to give up on something when times get challenging.  This can be a job, relationship or hobby that you have.  But if you stick with it, even though the most difficult times, you will come out the other side better for it.  Maybe even a champion, which is a worthy goal to have.

This is great advice to take when you are being challenged by something and are about to throw in the towel.  Sometimes, it is the right move to give up and cut your losses of course.  But often times, it is better to keep at it and keep trying.  So the next time life is getting hard, and it is easy for you to give up, take another look and think about where you want to be at the end of it.  This will help to guide your decision of whether or not to keep going or not.

Do you think this is good advice?  How do you know when it is better to stick it out and when it is better to cut your losses?
