Never Give Up

Nobody ever said making it in life was easy; you strive to be successful in this life. Of course, there would be obstacles and challenges even Jesus Christ encountered this, so who are we not to. Also, not everyone was born with a silver spoon; of course, there are limited opportunities. We sometimes get frustrated because things aren’t going our way or according to our plan, especially when we see our mates making it out there. We feel empty and left alone by everyone because nobody wants anything to do with us, and at one point or another, we feel like giving up completely. Remember that it’s not going to be easygoing and smooth consistently; stop viewing problems as an accident, see them as an opportunity to strive more toward success.

“Things aren’t always easy, but you just have to keep going and don’t let the small stuff bog you down.”– Stella Maeve.

Everyone has one or two-story to tell at one point in life or another. Remember, most successful people didn’t become rich suddenly; they started small. Some even struggled to complete their education, some dropped out of school, they all had a different issue or the other, but they never gave up.

They found their purposes in life and worked on it; they moved with friends and colleagues who had ambitions, looked to the obstacles others had to face, and learned from there, developed themselves over time, they relentlessly focused on their goals.

Energy and persistence conquer all things.” — Benjamin Franklin

There will be a lot of challenges along the way. There will be times when doubt casts a gloomy shadow over your aspirations and goals.

These are a few ways to overcome your challenges:

Life isn’t about talking; it’s about commitment

Life isn’t about talking about not giving up alone; it’s about showing and proving it, showing that you can execute your plan, be focused. Being committed is a willingness to do whatever it takes to fulfill and follow through on a responsibility. It may not be what you enjoy, but we do it regardless.

Be open to change

Openness to change refers to an individual’s level of acceptance and conscious awareness of the possibility that change may be needed across various situations and scenarios, together with the appetite or drive to enact that change. You must be willing to adapt to change, ready to accept change, show positive emotions toward change, and also have an appetite or drive toward change.

Self- confidence

You must have confidence in your abilities or judgment. Judging yourself to be capable of success increases your chances of real success. To succeed, you need the confidence to face and overcome your fears. Lack of trust leads to weak goals, setting the bar too low, leading to mediocre results.
