Have you stopped believing in yourself because of a failed business, relationship, or career?

Feeling dejected that things are not working out the way you want?

Are you questioning yourself if you have what it takes to achieve your goals?

Are you giving up on love because you can’t seem to find the right person?

You might feel like you are never going to stop making mistakes, you are not going to get it right, everyone you love is going to leave you and you have nothing to offer this world. Those are fears, they are not facts. Your worst moments don’t define you.

As humans, we are naturally wired to seek pleasure and avoid pain. When given a choice most of us will seek out short cuts and choose the easier path. Unfortunately, you will not get to where you want to be in life by dabbling. Almost everything that creates value in life requires intense effort, focus, and hard work.

The road to success is paved with obstacles but you have to persist, keep learning, and never give up. Refuse to give up. Keep going and when you get knocked down, just get back up and keep moving towards your goal. Most successful people in the world were not handed a great life on a silver platter. They were persistent and keep trying even when life got them down.

Abraham Lincoln had several failed elections campaigns before becoming one of the most influential presidents. J.K Rowling was a jobless single parent when she wrote Harry Potter. Walt Disney, owner of the world-famous Disney world filled for bankruptcy seven times and suffered two nervous break downs, but later he became a billionaire. Albert Einstein failed his university entrance examination before becoming a noble prize-winning physicist.

Each of these people could have given up but they kept trying and that determination ultimately allowed them to achieve success. Accept that you will experience failure, criticism, and ridicule. Some people may even try to stop you, others will give up on you but just don’t give up on yourself.

Just because you cannot see anything yet, although you have been working on your goals for a while doesn’t mean that nothing is happening. You may be closer to achieving your dream than you think. Don’t give up, when you could be just moments away from succeeding. 

Refusing to give up does not mean that you should simply keep doing the same thing over and over again. If the approach that you are currently using is not working try a different approach. Continue this way until you find a strategy, technique, or method that will work.

The most successful people in this world never gave up and neither should you. Decide today that you are going to be the best that you can be. Even when your closest friends don’t believe in you and even walk away, don’t let it stop your fight. Keep going through till you succeed!!
