What gives you motivation/strength when you fail?

Each of us has a kind of source of motivation that drive us when our life seems dark. I am first year medical student and I am facing many challenges and obstacles. How do you keep living with full enthusiasm and inspiration? I think I could apply this to my life, otherwise I alone cannot cope with it.
thank you!

    Feb 20 2013: When I was in high school we were asked to either a declamation or deliver and oratorical piece. I did the latter and my piece was titled - We can always begin again.

    Every time I get into bumps...I always go back to that piece to give me more strength to bounce back.
