Giving up is easy, and getting up every time you fall down and running again is tough, but that is what makes people successful. Perseverance is the key to success. Even when you feel you can’t run and are close to giving up, don’t. Just persevere, and you will be able to tide over every challenge in your path.
Here are 10 inspirational quotes to remind women why perseverance matters:
"(It doesn't matter) how intelligent you are, how well off you are, or how well-connected you are. Your perseverance, your courage - if you keep that intact, only such people will always be successful." -Sudha Murty, Infosys Foundation

Irrespective of how the path is, constant belief in (the) work that you do, pushing boundaries to always do it with the same passion makes you a good leader and therefore you lead by example.” - Mansi Gupta, Tjori
“As women, we often undervalue our capabilities and don’t realise the strength, power, and perseverance that calmly lies within. The day we tap into that, we realise that nothing is beyond our creation and control. Stand tall and be the woman you are made of.” - Samara Mahindra, CARER Program
“You need to keep plugging away with tenacity and passion. I focus a lot on the ‘Power of Now’ - what can you do now to fix the problem rather than being overwhelmed or moping about it.” - Meena Ganesh, Portea

You need an extra dose of grit, perseverance, with a willingness to embrace change every single day.” -Kanika Terkriwal, CEO & Co-founder, JetSetGo
