“Giving up on your goal because of one setback is like slashing your other tires because of a flat”

"Giving up on your goal because of one setback is like slashing your other three tires because you got a flat” was cited on Christine Kane‘s blog on January 30, 2013. The saying has been printed on GIFs and has been popular on Twitter. Some versions have “other three tires,” but many versions have “other tires.”

Pg. 12:
Giving back your goal because of a single setback is same like giving up your ride on the bicycle whose one tier goes flat and you just through it down that doesn’t happen ever.
