"Thousands of successful people did not achieve success on their first try, but they were not discouraged. They picked themselves up and went back at it with an even stronger, single minded tenacity to achieve their goal."
Catherine Pulsifer, from Do Not Be Discouraged
"Edison failed 10, 000 times before he made the electric light. Do not be discouraged if you fail a few times."
"Do not be discouraged if your plans do not succeed the first time.
No one learns to walk by taking only one step."
"Nearly every man who develops an idea works at it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then gets discouraged. That's not the place to become discouraged."
"Don't get discouraged, and think positive all the time. Don't get down on yourself if you lose out a couple of times. It's just a lot of hard work."
"It is also vitally important that when faced with setbacks in achieving a goal, you need to stay focused and not let the setbacks discourage you.
Byron and Catherine Pulsifer , from The Beaver And His Goals
"Remember, always give your best.
Never get discouraged. Never be petty.
Always remember, others may hate you.
But those who hate you don't win unless you hate them.
And then you destroy yourself."
"The experienced mountain climber is not intimidated by a mountain - he is inspired by it. The persistent winner is not discouraged by a problem - he is challenged by it. Mountains are created to be conquered; adversities are designed to be defeated; problems are sent to be solved. It is better to master one mountain than a thousand foothills."
William Arthur Ward
"Continuous, unflagging effort, persistence and determination will win. Let not the man be discouraged who has these."
James Whitcomb Riley
"History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats."
B. C. Forbes
"I will not be discouraged by failure; I will not be elated by success." Joseph B. Lightfoot
