It always gets hard, and there always that point in our lives when we are faced with two decisions; going on or giving up. When trying to achieve a dream or a goal, it is likened to a person running a marathon and has been running for a very long time; the person is bound to get tired on the way and start to feel like stopping and sitting down on the roadside and giving up. In like manner, we are also faced with that situation of giving up especially when we have tried for so long. In such situations, all we need is a reason to go on, and here are, 10 good reasons why you should never give up.
1. PEOPLE LOOK UP TO YOU
In life there are always people who look up to you even though you might not know it, they are there and they take you as their role model and giving up will only let them down. And even if they can’t tell you, when people hear about all the trials you went through and still didn’t give up, they’ll be inspired.
2. PROVING TO YOURSELF
You have to prove to yourself that you can do something and actually excel in it, that fear of failure limits you and makes you doubt your capabilities, and giving up will only make it worse, it will make you think that you are not good at anything and you should not even bother trying. So prove to yourself, you can do it.
3. PEOPLE HAVE DONE IT
Here is another good reason not to give up when you look at the examples of those who have been in your position and still made it, could be a too source of inspiration. That’s just it no matter how hard things get, remember some people have done it and people are doing it why can’t I do it.
4. PROVE THEM WRONG
Who are you to prove wrong in such challenging situations? Yes, those that said you couldn’t do it, those so-called ‘haters’ can also be your source of inspiration. When you remember the things they said to you and how they looked down on you, it should be a force that keeps you going. And those that said you could never make it will get to watch you do it and succeed. Don’t give them the satisfaction by giving up but rather astound them with your conviction.
5. IT’S NEVER EASY
Well, of course, you should know that the way to the top is never easy and it takes hard work determination and perseverance to succeed. If you want something easy try sitting around and doing nothing, ‘it’s quite an easy right?’ But since you don’t just want to settle for less and you want to aim higher, you should be ready to take the hard way up. It may not be easy, but you are sure to get results worth your efforts.
6. TRY A DIFFERENT APPROACH
“There is always a means to an end.” What really matters is making it to the end. But the means is also important. You may try and fail many times at something, but is that the only way means or way to achieve it? When you take alternative routes and try new methods, you’ll find yourself doing things that you couldn’t do before.
7. “GOOD” IS GOOD ENOUGH
One reason why most people give up is that they beat themselves up trying to do more and attain a certain height they think is the best. You know your limits and what you can do, so when you ha e did something good, something meaningful trusts me its good enough.
8. YOU GIVE UP, YOU FAIL
The worst kind of failure is giving up. When you put all your effort and resources into something, and at the end, you just give up, that’s your loss and a total disappointment.
It’s better not to have started than to go half way and quit.
9. THE AFTERMATH REGRET
After giving up, you start to regret it, and the thought of what you could have been if you haven’t given up continues to taunt you. So face the challenges head on an see them through to the end, in that way you live your life without regrets.
10. FIND YOUR INSPIRATION
You need that source of inspiration where you can always find the strength to continue, you could have a write up of motivational quotes or talks to read, or you could meet someone that inspires you and gives you uplifting advice. Your source of inspiration may also come from our parents, children and friends, people you look up to and people who look up to you. So whenever you are down getting help and get up.
That’s it, having read this 10 point I’m sure you’re reconsidering not giving up on that thing you are doing or want to do. Just like the runner in the race you can only win when you persevere and make it to the end by never giving up.
