Never Give Up

From time to time we all need some motivation, a reminder of why we do what we do… About a decade ago, a Canadian prodigy preached to the world about the importance of never saying never — yeah, you know the song. I propose an amendment to this gospel, to accept “never give up.”

Often we find ourselves doubting ourselves, thinking it was not meant to be, cutting our losses, and giving up. And sometimes that is ok! Sometimes the wise thing to do is indeed to know when to stop and move on. But I believe that most times success is but one last try away.

Sure, it is easier said than done. I do not argue that, at all. I do however firmly stand by my conviction that most impossible things are actually possible. Difficult yes, and perhaps not probable, but definitely possible. The rest depends on you.

Success stems directly from your ability to fail and try again. Success is a matter of what you are willing to do (and cease to do) to accomplish it. Success is less about skill and more about character. The question then becomes: Is your success worth the sacrifice?

With this in mind I leave you with a quote from a man whose wisdom echos across the centuries: “Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well.” -Theodore Roosevelt

  1. I totally agree with your post. It is, in most cases all about playing the game all the way through to the end. I have had several times in my life where, when everyone else gave up and quit. I continued on and found success where they found disappointment by giving up too soon.
    Persevere I will and do.
    Thanks! Great Post!

  2. Amazing post! Thanks for the morning motivation haha 😄 It’s a good reminder for me, I think I have the ability to “guess” in what I will and what I won’t succeed, so I can hardly say that I failed at something because I never even tried to do something in which I risked to fail…. not sure if it makes sense! Though one of my recent resolutions is to try also the things that I’m pretty sure I will fail! I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from that but it’s so hard to make the first step towards it!

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comment and compliment, Caroline! 😄 I understand what you mean! That’s actually part of the reason why I have not taken the LSAT (Law School Admission Test) yet. Indeed, it is challenging to undertake projects where we are unsure we will succeed. But how great will it be when we do!? You got this, Caroline! 😄
