There are times when we feel like giving up, sometimes we give up even before we start. And at other times, we tend to give up just before we are about to make a huge break-through. What makes us never to give up? Is it determination, perseverance or a strong belief in ourselves? Are we missing any? What can we do to find it/them?
If we fail, we should never give up because F.A.I.L. means “First Attempt In Learning “while End is not the end, in fact, E.N.D. means “Effort Never Dies”–If you get No as an answer, remember N.O. means “Next Opportunity”. So, Let’s be positive and persevered throughout our lives on the many different levels of challenges. We should have the belief within ourselves that we can do it, we should never give up until we find our true calling… what really pleases God and makes us happy.
We should remember that our hardest times often lead us to the greatest moments of our lives. ‘Keep going’ should be our motto. Tough situations build strong people in the end. We should not fear failure, but rather fear not trying. Anything is possible. As long as we are alive, healthy and free, we have the choice to keep trying until we finally succeed. We should never give up. Even, Thomas Edison after two years of failed attempts still succeeded in making the light bulb. (2 Corinthians 4:16-17)
We should learn a lesson from the grasses because they never give up, so why should we give up when we try something, and it didn’t work out? Have you ever cut grass? You must have noticed that grass never stops growing no matter how many times we cut it: so, if grasses never stop growing, why should we stop trying? So, let’s start behaving like grasses, we should stop quitting, stop giving up, stop staying never, stop regretting, stop saying I’m tired, stop saying I can’t do it anymore.
Remember that grass never stops growing no matter how many times we cut it.so why should you stop trying? Same goes for the rivers, no matter how many people swim in them, cross and distract the rivers; they never stop flowing: even when it stops raining and the rivers get dried up as soon as it starts raining the rivers will start flowing again, they never give up. So, I dare you today to start doing the same, never give up no matter what.
Times will come when it doesn’t sound fun to keep a particular thing or reaching out to a particular person who rejected you over and over again. You will hit moments when the thing you loved becomes the thing you want to avoid. “Why?” you ask. The reasons are diverse as there are people to experience them. Perhaps, even though change is inevitable, we don’t want to change at all. It could be because of fear of failure, fear of success, or fear of the unknown.
Remember when those moments come, and you feel like the path you are on is full of obstacles, challenges, and stress, remember what you are fighting for. Remember the goal that you set out for yourself. Remember somewhere deep down inside you there is something aching to come forth and be created or lived. Go for it at all cost.
Never give up on happiness, fulfilment, passion, or success as you define it. As long as you keep taking steps forward on the path that most honors you and God, you will discover new ways to be delighted and new ways to make your passion come alive again because the best part of about constant change is that the low parts won’t stay forever either. Sometimes you just have to stick with it to see what awaits you on the other side. It couldn’t have been all roses and rainbows but imagine what would have happened if you had given up. Thankfully, a number of people has been inspired and delighted because you didn’t give up.
You see, passion alone doesn’t create success, perseverance does. There is a fine line between refusing to give up and being stubborn or refusing to let go of what no longer serves you. But you have to give yourself a chance first. Keep going, even when the path is uphill. Never give up, because the sure way to never succeed is to quit or to never try at all.
You may not achieve everything in life you set out to do, but your life will be so much richer for the journey. The most rewarding part about never giving up? The knowledge that you never gave up on yourself and didn’t let the hardest parts of the path keep you from living life to the fullest. It won’t always be easy, but it will always be worth it.
Everybody needs somebody at one point in time. Do not ill-treat anyone especially when they are excelling or failing more than you. There is time for EVERYTHING and for EVERYONE. Keep TRUSTING in God and WAITING for your turn. “God gives each of us chance after chance” (Job 33:29). Your time to POP(like the popcorns) will come at God’s appointed time(Ecclesiastes 3:1-3). NEVER GIVE UP! He makes all things beautiful in his own time. To understand what life is, you have to visit three locations:_
At the Hospital: you will understand that nothing is more beautiful than health.
In prison: you’ll see that freedom is the most precious thing.
At the cemetery: you will realise that life is worth nothing, the ground we walk today will be our roof tomorrow.
Let us, therefore, remain humble by having the fear of God and respect for everyone. To taste success, you are always faced with temporary defeat. If you give up at these defeats you will fail, but if you keep going you will become successful. So, never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine. So, stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learning. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you.
The point I’m trying to make here is that you should never give up. Keep reinventing yourself and find the passion within you to create what you want in life. It’s an ongoing process that is ever-changing and evolving. Be patient and kind.
