No matter how good or bad your life is going, you can always find an excuse to give up. But it works the other way too. If you look for a reason to keep going, you can find that too.
If you put your mind to it, you can do anything. At some point in our lives, we may feel like giving up. It all depends on the circumstances that sometimes get us to what we call a “breaking point.”
Here are 15 reasons why you should never give up, we hope that you find your reason before you give up in advance and it will inspire you to move on.
1.As long as you’re alive, everything is possible
The only good reason for you to give up is death. As long as you are alive (healthy and free), you have a choice to make attempts to succeed. So, instead of giving up because of any failures you may have gone through, just try again. Life gives us time to do that.
2.There are people worse off than you
Right now there are many people who are in a worse situation than you are now. Think about the people who are deaf and unable to speak. You can read and understand because you have an education, most people are uneducated and have zero knowledge about the internet. Aren’t you better than them?
3.Nobody is perfect
We are all human. Realizing that it’s okay,a mistake is only part of the battle to that ultimate goal. Learning and moving forward comes from doing something wrong and being told how to do it right. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi still miss penalties.
4.Prove Others Wrong
When someone says you can’t do something, show that you can. Read more, write more, know more and work harder than the person next to you.
If he or she runs two miles, run three. If he or she spends four hours working on a project, spend eight. Actions speak a lot louder than words, so instead of complaining and sulking about others perceptions of us, make them choke on and spit up their words.
5. Understand that Rome wasn’t built in a day
This is the most important saying to remember when giving up becomes a legitimate thought. Nobody can create an empire in a day; no business can become a multi-billion-dollar venture in one day, and no idea is worth throwing in the garbage if all the stops haven’t been pulled out yet.
6.You Have Everything You Need
Everything you need to reach your goal is already inside of you. Don’t make excuses,if people can play sports at the Olympic level with disabilities; your short-comings begin to look irrelevant.
7.Failure Is Normal
It’s impossible to reach success without first facing failure, so don’t let anything stop you. Failure is a normal process in life. It’s not the end but just a stream changing directions before it finally reaches the ocean.
8.Things Can Only Get Better
By sticking to your goal and being persistent, things can only get better. If you’ve hit rock bottom or feel you’re on your way down. Remind yourself that with the right amount of hard work what comes down must go up. Hard work and determination can get you anything in life.
9.When you quit, you set a mental precedent to quit again
Think about a person who has tried to diet and failed several times. Their belief in their ability to lose weight is actually diminished by each abandoned attempt. Quitting and perseverance are both habit forming. Which habit do you want to develop?
10.It has been done before
Even if there was only one person in the world who has done what you want to do – it proves to you that whatever your goal is – IT CAN BE ACHIEVED!. Remind yourself that if someone else can do it then so can you. That should be motivating enough for you to never give up!
11.Believe in your dreams
Do not betray yourself. There will always be a lot of people telling you that what you want to achieve is impossible. Do not let anyone ruin your dreams because you should never give up. Related:15 types of people you should avoid to be successful in life
12.You are so close to success
One book you must read: Never Give Up!: Relentless Determination to Overcome Life’s Challenges by Joyce Meyer.
13.You haven’t tried everything
Setbacks and struggles are no fun. You have two options when you deal with a setback: give up or keep trying. When we struggle even after trying what we think is everything, it forces us to think outside of the box and to look for alternatives. The hidden beauty of a setback is that it produces creativity and stretches us past our current abilities.
14. Past failures do not predict your future
As they say, “You live and you learn.” Failures are nothing more than a learning opportunity. In fact, I try not to use the word “failure” at all, because for every time you don’t achieve success at something, you learn a valuable lesson from it. If something didn’t workout in the past, then learn from it, alter your path to success and don’t make the same mistake again.
15.Believe it or not, some people will be glad that you quit
They may not say it, but unfortunately many people you know will hope for you to give up. This is for the simple reason that your dedication to your goal will remind them of their own unrealized potential. Rather than proving your doubters right, let your dedication inspire.
One book you must read :Never Give Up–You’re Stronger Than You Think
It’s important to realize that a never give up attitude isn’t something that happens overnight; it takes time. But once you develop a strong mentality coupled with a clear vision, your powers become endless. You’ll be able to achieve anything you set your mind to. No matter what you are going through right now, you have the power to change things by not giving up and trusting in the Lord.
