Many of us feel deep regret after we quit going after our goals because it is only after we have thrown in the towel that we realized that success was actually so close, only if we have persevered.

We learned a lot of important opportunities when we donít give up like: we have more experience; we develop our sense of optimism, discover who we truly
Life doesn't allow us to go back and fix what we have done wrong in the past, but it does allow us to live each day better than our last.
are and where our strengths lie; we store up happy memories as we strive for success; we become a positive role model for others who wish to achieve their goals as well and we achieve the success we are striving form.

I have learned not to give up before the miracle happen; that there is no failure except in no longer trying; and that we never give up, even when many indications show, we should. Things are not always easy, but we just have to keep going and donít let the small stuff bog us down.

I do not usually listen to what anybody says except the people who encourage me. I keep on going and try to concentrate on what I want to do. It does not matter how slowly I go as long as I do not stop. The choice to keep going in spite of so many odds is an incredible trait that we human beings have.

Iíd rather have a life full of mistakes than a heart full of regret. Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right place. 

When we decide to do something that is life changing, we are giving our time; we are spending a portion of our life that we can never get back. So let us make sure that we spend our time on something we will not regret.

Nothing in the world can replace perseverance, talent does not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent, genius does not; unrewarded genius is almost legendary, education does not. The world is full of useless educated people. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent.

Usually when one door closes in our life, we tend to stay there and we stare at this closed door full of regrets and sorrow. We do not realize that at the very moment this door closed, another door opened for us.

I have learned that good days give us happiness, bad days give experience, worse days give lesson, and best days give memories. Let us not cry over the past, it is gone; let us not stress about the future, it has not arrived yet; but live in the present and make it beautiful. At the end of the day, let us be thankful that our blessings are bigger than our problems..

I haven't lived a perfect life. I have regrets but that's from a lifetime of taking chances, making decisions, and trying not to be frozen. The only thing that I can do with my regrets is understand them.-Kevin Costner
