We generally hear about how persistence is often the key to success.
But what do you do when you've been striving for so long that it seems like your goal is never going to see light?
How do you deal with the fear that you're about to fail? Simple - Give it just one more shot.
And then one more.
Think about the sweat and time you've committed already. You've come this far, you'd be unfair to yourself if you quit without a fight.
Even if the odds are way out of your favor and you can't see how it can possibly help, reach out and take one last swing. You never know what will happen. Glory and big achievements don't happen when everything goes your way. How many times have you seen people in sports make miraculous winning shots that seemed impossible?
Sometimes, you can find victory in the effort.
