"You are never defeated until you give up the fight. You give up the fight by giving up the dream."
-Jose "Pepe" Mujica
I think one of the things that makes people so inspiring and motivating is watching those who have been set back or knocked down a thousand times, become successful and realize their dreams. It's the human spirit. We all struggle and face setbacks, but what makes it inspiring is the fact that no matter how many times we get knocked down, we can always get back up and start over; over and over again.
We don't become defeated in anything until we give up our dream. No matter how many days, or years it's been that you've been set back. Nothing is lost until you decide that you've given up on that dream. If the dream is still in your heart, it's still achievable. Just keep going, keep trying.
There have probably been many failures, setbacks, things that hurt you, and I'm sure there will be more, but we always learn more from these setbacks and suffering points than we do if it was easy. So take your lessons, accept it and what has happened in order to move forward stronger and smarter because of them. I hope you all keep pushing on towards your dreams and keep fighting to make them happen. You are on no one else's timeline but yours. You will make it, just don't give up.
