I'm sure majority of people out there, in one way or another, have given up in their lifetime. I've lived almost nineteen years, and I've given up more times then I can found on my fingers. The point of this take is not to discourage you or make you feel worthless if you have given up before. It's to encourage you to change the attitude of giving up, to motivate, so that you can reach for what you want and not give up in the future. It'll be hard, my god, will it be hard. But worth every moment. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are ready to give up.
1. Keep Persisting
Be determined to reach that goal, to stick with it, persistence is the key. Without it, we can't get anywhere. Learn persistence, build on it.
2. Remember the Reason
During hard or trial times it's hard to remember why you're even trying. You lose focus on what you want, you feel the bad impacts too much of the good, and it is now seemingly useless. Any good reason is lost. Before giving up though, try and remember those reasons. Is it to make yourself happy? Is it to prove you can finish something? Is it improve yourself? Maybe it's for your family or friends? Just remember the reason you began trying, and don't give up so easily. It's the moments we fight, that define our outcome.
3. Accept Nothing comes Easily
Anything worth fighting for will be a struggle. You need to accept that we have to struggle for what we want. That's what makes it so special. By giving up, you are giving up that special thing you've already fought so hard to get. Why give up now? Be courageous, take risks, and keep your head held high! You can do it, if you put your mind to it. So....
Good luck, I believe in you, now it's your turn to believe in yourself. ❤️
