Sometimes we back down from situations because upon reflection we can clearly see that the reason we pushed on with vigor and enthusiasm is simple because you felt as though you’d gone too far to turn back.
Or perhaps, you just didn’t want to accept that you were wrong.
But other times we back down because we’re not willing to commit to the cause and take things all the way. It might be a situation that you know will be difficult to overcome but your fear has made you believe that it it’s not worth it.
As much as it’s important to know when to quit, it’s important to know when to keep going.
