Motivational Quotes: It’s inarguably true that the road to success and achievement isn’t easy in all ramifications – all its forms. Sometimes the road appears as a dotted figure figured to be a mountain, sometimes the road gets filled with loads of obstacles to overcome – obstacles so tenacious and energy-sapping cum mind-numbing, which sometimes makes one consider quitting as an option. However, irrespective of the situation at hand, I’ll love you to remember that you get fed up along the way is a good omen, that what’s out to hit you is something great – remember anything worth having would never come easy. Thus, I’ll urge you not to stop striving – don’t give up, don’t look back nor turn around. Keep your eyes fixed at the price whilst paying the price.
