Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture...Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.
If at first you don't succeed, sure, try again... but if you keep not succeeding, you should probably concentrate on something (or someone) else worthwhile & quit wasting your time.
If you fail to leave a child/children behind it doesn't matter. Yes! but if you fail to leave your footprints on the sands of time it matters. For, you ought to succeed in leaving your footprints behind for posterity. Besides that, the posterity ahead can't/won't remember or celebrate you for merely succeeding in leaving a child/children behind. Rather, they (the posterity) will only remember/celebrate you for succeeding in leaving your footprints behind. Thus, strive to leave nothing but your footprints.
Losers do quit when they are fed up. But on the other hand, winners never quit until they win. What actually do I intend to say? Am just saying that, giving up before succeeding is what makes anybody a loser. Whereas, never quitting is what distinguishes a winner from a loser. Therefore, never be fed up with anything positive in life, until you emerge a success. In case you don't know? What lies ahead of you could be far much better than anything you ever thought possible. Anyway, I guess that's a reasonable reason why you shouldn't give up on your faith until you succeed.
My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over. (On succeeding Richard M Nixon as president)
Of all that is good, sublimity is supreme. Succeeding is the coming together of all that is beautiful. Furtherance is the agreement of all that is just. Perseverance is the foundation of all actions.
While the State becomes inflated and hypertrophied in order to obtain a firm enough grip upon individuals, but without succeeding, the latter, without mutual relationships, tumble over one another like so many liquid molecules, encountering no central energy to retain, fix and organize them.
You are just a mortal i.e. you are subject to death. But guess what? You can achieve immortality i.e. you can live perpetually even after your demise just by succeeding in achieving an enduring fame via living for others now that you're still alive.

For, many mortals like you have already achieved immortality, just because they lived for others throughout their lifetimes e.g. Zig Ziglar/William Shakespeare/Chinua Achebe/Nelson Mandela/Mother Theresa/Martin Luther King Jnr./Mahatma Gandhi/Andrew Carnegie among others.
