Giving up is such an easy thing to do. All it takes is one moment, just one quick moment for you to say to yourself “I don’t want to do this anymore.” That moment followed by the action to throw your towel in is what I call the result of FAILURE.
You see failing isn’t failing. Giving up is failing. So maybe you’re not getting to where you want to be. So maybe you’ve been working really really hard at something for years and nothing is coming out of it. You keep going at it and going at it but you continue to fail, fail and fail. You’ve accumulated a volume of aggravation and frustration inside and all you want to do is give up. But that feeling of aggravation and frustration should be nothing but ammunition to keep you going. Utilize those feelings to move yourself forward not to keep yourself behind.
Although you may not be seeing the results you want, recognize that every time you work hard to get somewhere, even if you’re only moving an inch, you WILL get there. Upon research of some of the world’s most successful and inspirational people in this world, I have found that these people all have a grasp and concrete understanding of what it feels like to keep failing but to keep moving forward. These people have unraveled the fact behind failure: that every tiny atom sized mark of progress make huge results.
The majority of the time it is the moment that we decide to quit that we are the closest to reaching our definition of success. So no matter the aggression, no matter the aggravation, just know that you are well on your way to where you want to be, you are well on your way to the person you want to become … as long as you don’t quit.
Giving up is not an option.
