Don’t stop three feet from the gold. If you have read "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill you know the story of the gold miner who gave up on his mine when he was so close to his goal. I like to remind myself of these words when I get discouraged:

Before success comes in any man’s life, he is sure to meet with much temporary defeat, and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to quit. That is exactly what the majority of men do. More than five hundred of the most successful men this country has ever known told the author their greatest success came just one step beyond the point at which defeat had overtaken them. Failure is a trickster with a keen sense of irony and cunning. It takes great delight in tripping one when success is almost within reach.
