You cannot and must not give up on yourself and your goals. Believe in yourself and believe that you can and will succeed. Keep trying – keep doing different things to achieve your goals. Most people never achieve their goals because they often quit just when they are on the verge of reaching their dream. Remember the saying “success lies just beyond failure”. Let’s face it if you give up on something – it’s over and nothing changes for you. Those who quit always fail. Those who succeed never give up. I know some of you will be saying “I haven’t given up – I’ve been trying for 15 years and nothing has changed. I keep trying and nothing works – I simply can’t go on anymore.” Succeeding isn’t about doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for a different result. That’s insanity. By never giving up, you continue striving toward your goals but you have to always try something different in order to get a different result. Always look for a solution. To stay committed to your goal and why you should never give up and how to keep the momentum going so you reach or surpass your goals.
If you are dreaming of becoming a scuba diver, for example, and you have no one among your friends who shares the same interest that’s a good time to think about a new circle of people you need to create. It’s great to be among people who share the similar goals & beliefs as you are. And if your goal is to be successful be around successful people you can learn a lot from. When you accomplish everything you set out to achieve, you can use your success to make a change in the world. Individual effort makes a huge difference. If you can change the world of one person, you can change the world.
These powerful words from a mentor of mine have been burned in fire into my memory. He stated: Rarely, a dream or goal comes true easily and effortlessly, without delays, problems or hurdles. It is far more common, however, that you have to overcome many obstacles and suffer some pain before achieving any meaningful target, And he said me that the bigger your dreams, the tougher your challenge, the more ambitious your goals, the more likely it is that you will face difficulties on your way towards it.
Thomas Edison went through ten thousand experiments before he figured out how to invent the light bulb. He stayed persistent, tried a different approach and never believed that he knew everything. If you want to be wealthy, think of all the things you have tried, and then focus on finding a solution by searching for things you haven’t tried. You may think a certain approach won’t work but if you haven’t tried it – you don’t know. Search for new solutions. Stay persistent and change your attitude and approach. Create positive thoughts and beliefs that help you succeed. To succeed you have to believe that you can achieve your goals.
There are loads of people out there eager to tell you that the goals you put on the map are impossible to achieve due to their own limiting beliefs. But who are they to decide and set YOUR LIMITS? Often when you feel that you are about to give up you are the closest to making a huge breakthrough! At any point in time, you’re always just on the verge of success. Keep going until you hit your gold mine! Never give up!
Be a living inspiration for others and refuse to give up. Who knows what someone else can achieve by listening to your motivational stories how it was tough and you were about to quit, but you never caved in and succeeded! Learn from the best and make it happen! And then motivate others to go beyond their personal limits.You are stronger than you think. 1,2 or even 3 little failures are not enough to stop you from achieving your goals. Your goals are far greater than all of the doubts. Imagine a little oak tree. Did it stop growing every time it was facing harsh winds? NO. So why should you stop? You are alive, aren’t you? So you have no good reason to give up. Period
Success will never be a big step in the future, success is a small step taken just now.
