Three Words That Motivated Me to Continue On

"I never gave up. I knew it was harder. Things were more difficult. It would take more time. But I never gave up." Kelli Gary talks about the three words that helped her working through her TBI.

There are three words that I hung onto that helped me to progress--you know--and just move forward in anything in my life, and that was perseverance, persistence, and tenacity. I never gave up. I knew it was harder. Things were more difficult. It would take more time. It would be longer. It would be harder. Everything. But I never gave up. If I had my eyes set on something and it's what I wanted, I wouldn't stop until I got it. And that's important because there's going to be so many obstacles. There's going to be so many things. You know, it's not going to be easy. It's not going to be same. It's not--you know--things are going to be different, but it doesn't mean that you can't achieve and you can't move forward. You just gotta stay in there, keep going, and just stick with it and continue to push yourself.
