Reasons Why You Should Never Give Up
I’m giving up!
I can’t see any result yet
My challenges overwhelm me.It’s getting the better part of me and I already feel like a failure right now.
Can you relate to either of them or all? I want you to know that you are not alone. Everyone feels and experiences it.
Life challenges suck!
It makes us question ourselves, our capacity and leaves room for self-doubt to creep in. And in such moment, we get drained of our mental strength. We can’t continue again. This leaves us no choice than to give up.
But hold on, why should you give up?
Here, let me give you reasons why you should hang in there and never ever give up.
7 reasons why you should never give up
1.You are alive; this is hope
You are reading this post right now. It means you are alive. It’s a plus and the most important reason for not giving up. There is hope for a life that’s still breathing, even a living dog is better than a dead lion. You have lots of opportunities. Opportunity to make your dream happen, be who you want to be, another chance to sit down and come up with another plan to start again. Now smarter.
It’s only those who are alive get such chance. Not the dead. When you don’t succeed the first time, you can try again. Your breakthrough might be next door. Giving up is not an option if you are alive.
2.Everyone passes through life challenges
The adversity of life is not peculiar to you. Everyone goes through the ups and downs of life.
Why is this so?
Life is not a smooth ride. There are road blocks and bumps here and there. Because you live on this planet called earth, you will face challenges. Everyone.
The more you understand this about life, the easier it will be to brace yourself up and handle challenges when they show up on your doorstep.
3.You owe it to your dreams
The ‘you’ within you have a dream. A dream that can only find expression outside.
I watched a young woman on TV two days ago. She came for an audition. The voice Nigeria. The host interviewed her before she went up to sing.There, she told the host she’s been on 20 auditions. The voice Nigeria is her 21st audition. She hasn’t given up. She won’t. Yeah, she told the host so. It has been her dream to become an artist and this might be the platform to help launch her dreams.
And you know what?
She sang so well that she got picked by one of the judges.
Ok.while yours might not be to become a singer, you do have a dream waiting to be birthed. Give yourself that joy of pursuing it and make it a reality. Nobody said it will be easy and effortless. Don’t deny yourself the fulfillment that comes with making your dream happen. When you live your dreams, you live life without regrets.
4.Nobody has got it all
Do you know everything?
You don’t. I don’t. No one knows it all. It is only human that we can’t figure everything out. Your challenges do not make you less human. We are bound to make mistakes, as we look for solutions to our problems. It does not make you less human. When you fail or don’t get it right, don’t give up. Pick yourself up, try again. There is no hard or fast rule about how many times one can fail.
It’s OK to admit not to know all. It’s OK to admit a fall. But they are not a reason to give up when we face them. They are only events, the result of a strategy that will not work. A fall, a mistake doesn’t define you. Rise up and move forward. Launch out again, now armed with tested strategies and the ones untested.
5No lesson or experience to gain
Life is a teacher; the more you live, the more you learn. Adversities are great teachers for life. If you give up on your dreams, how will you grow?
Thomas Edison, the inventor of the light bulb, failed many times before he got a breakthrough. His friend who went down to Thomas’s laboratory to see him asked him this question:
“Isn’t it a shame that with the tremendous amount of work done you haven’t been able to get any results?’’ Thomas replied him, “Results! Why, man, I have gotten lots of results! I know several thousand things that won’t work!”
If he had given up on his project, he wouldn’t have become successful. And even had to know a thousand things that will never work.
We grow through trial and error. Keep trying, but never give up. Your next attempt might be the key to your breakthrough.
6. The stronger the wind; the stronger the tree
What doesn’t kill you will make you strong. A verse from the Bible says, “If you fall in the days of adversity, how small is your strength. Life challenges make you strong. It exposes you to the inner strength you never knew you have. I can tell you that you become open to possibilities to help you overcome the challenge. You learn how to use life challenges to make yourself better.Here is a helpful post on how to fail and succeed
People are not able to get a grip on challenges because of how they perceive setback and failure. When you develop the right attitude towards challenges, you stop seeing them as one. Rather you start to see it as a strength booster. To make sure you don’t get discouraged and give up, when you face challenges, ask yourself these questions:
What can I learn from this challenge? How will I grow from it?
This will put you in a positive state. And a positive mind will make you embrace your challenge, seeing it as a learning tool.
