The words “Give” and “Up” should never be together. Rather the word NO shouldn’t even be in your dictionary. Being part of the human race you are one of the most resilient and strongest beings to have ever walked on the earth. You are practically legendary. Comparing you to people who lived just 100 years ago, you will notice that you know a lot more things than they did and you are 1000 times more connected and up to date than they could even imagine.
People will give you thousand of reason to live life in negativity and to give up on your dreams. Will you hear those voices and believe those views?
The choice is yours.
But there is another voice inside your heart that will tell you; You are a masterpiece. You can do whatever you want. You can fulfill your possible dreams. Just don’t give up on your dream. Your victory is closer than you think. Keep going & keep moving. You are at the end of the tunnel. All the pain you have been you will get double the success.
It isn’t always easy trying to reach the top, but when you’re thinking about giving up, remember these five things:
- There’s Always Someone Working Harder Than You Are.
Even if you think you’ve done all you can, you’re
wrong. Everyone has a dream, goal and motivation. It just depends how far you’re willing to go to get what you want.
Success comes from being unique and standing out among the crowd. If you settle for good enough, that’s all you will be and someone will surpass you.
- Believe In Your Dreams
When you give up, you give up on yourself. Don’t sell yourself short and don’t let anybody bring you down. If you can dream it, you can do it. There have been millions of dreamers before you and if they had given up the world wouldn’t have been the same.
Take the example of the Wright brothers who faced severe ridicule when they tried to make flight a reality. Everybody laughed at them and told them it
was impossible. They proved the world wrong, and now flight now is considered a common means of travel and it has changed the world.
- Right Before Success, There is A Dark Place
Coca-Cola sold only 25 bottles in its first year.
There was a guy who began singing and playing guitar at the age of four. His parents didn’t want him to watch TV too much. He was banned from playing video games, but he had a lot of books about arts.
He didn’t enjoy school and was even bullied. A year later he decided to quit school and follow his dream of making into the music industry.
Now things didn’t go as planned and he ended up homeless, often sleeping on trains just to get by. It lasted for three years where he had no place to live.
He spent multiple nights & days performing to small groups often without even eating. To his surprise, some of his tracks viral on iTunes.
By the end of the year 2011, his album sold 801,000 copies making it the 8th best-selling album of the year. His name? Ed Sheeran.
Next time you see someone who is successful. Don’t focus on what they are doing now.
Focus on what they did to get there.
- You’re Only Hurting Yourself
At the end of the day, we all want to see you succeed, but if you don’t, you’re the only one who’s ultimately affected. Just because you gave up doesn’t mean everyone else is. Your friends and family may still love and care about you, but they’ll eventually spend less and less time with you–nobody wants to hang around with someone who makes them feel stuck.
If you want to give up, give up. I can’t stop you, but if you want to succeed and turn your dreams into a reality, it’s going to take work. You’ll have to walk through both heaven and hell. There will be pain, and there will be a lot of times where you feel like giving up is your only option. Keep pushing, and never give up–quitters never win.
- You Don’t Want To Regret This
Regret is the worst feeling a person can feel. Don’t put yourself in that position and do what you have to do, now.
“I do not regret the things I’ve done, but those I did not do”.- Rory Cochrane
Best of luck!
