There are few movies that push me to an emotional response like this one...

Have you ever watched the movie, Facing the Giants?  It is a great one if you can find it.  The movie takes place in a small town and a high school football coach who can't seem to put a winning record together.  A turn around in the coach's heart takes place (I won't spoil it...you'll just have to watch it for yourself).  The coach after his change of heart begins to push his team to greater focus and commitment.  One scene he is working with one of his lineman.  He asks his lineman, Brock, to place a blindfold on his eyes and bear crawl the entire length of the field with a teammate on his back.  Brock thinks he is almost done but he has to listen to the voice of his coach to keep going on and keep pressing forward.  At one point, Brock wants to give up.  The coach won't let him.  "Don't quit.  You can't quit Brock.  Give me one more yard, Brock!  Give me one more yard.  Don't quit!  Don't quit!", the coach screams.  Brock collapses and the coach tells him to take off his blindfold.  Brock had bear crawled with a teammate on his back the entire length of the 100 yard field.  Wow!  That scene always chokes me up because I want to quit so many times when it gets tough.  I can feel the pain of Brock.  

Don't quit.  Keep pressing forward to your financial goals.  You will wake up one day at the end zone and realize you have reached your goals!
