Never Give Up

NeverGiveUp-cf8470Patience is a proof of love; you prove how badly you want something by how long are you willing to wait for it .C. Forbes once said, “history has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats.”

Most of all wealthy people started off broke. Most of them failed several times before they finally made it. It might interest you to know that the average self-made millionaire has been bankrupt or close to bankruptcy more than 3 times.

Falling is different from failing. Failing is terminal but falling isn’t necessarily terminal. People don’t fail by falling down but rather by staying down.

Children fall many times as they learn to walk. And many of those falls result into bumps, bruises, tears and pain. But they never give up. They keep on picking themselves up, dry their tears, forget the shame and try again until they master their steps. This is called persistent commitment. To become great one must be persistently committed to do whatever it takes.

Desire for success is what drives the person to offer the necessary sacrifices. In other words, your willingness to persevere is the proof of desire. For this reason, your desire is the driving force to your success. To attain greatness faster, one must learn how to flame and maintain a strong desire for greatness.

An obstacle in a form of a set back, cost or hard work is like a door lock. Just as the lock is designed to deny access to those who don’t have the key, an obstacle is designed to discourage those who do not have a desire for success.

The key to solving any obstacle is handed to a person who can prove (s) he has the strongest desire for the reward of overcoming the obstacle. Ralph Waldo Emerson well said, “that which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to do is increased

Patience is a proof of love. You prove how badly you want something for how long are you willing to wait for it. One of my favorite role models, Brian Tracy, in his remarkable report “ The Roots of Resilience” said, in essence, that researchers in a detailed study on goal-setting and success concluded that people who set goals succeeded in achieving their goals fully 95% of the time.  But these people only achieved their goals if they refused to quit and continue to bounce back from difficulties along the way.

To win a race you must cross the finishing line. If you are thriving for success, do not give up until you have achieved it. Keep on working on your project. As the famous old poem bellow says you must not quit.

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow;
You may succeed with another blow;
Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never can tell how close you are;
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit —
It’s when things seem worst
When you must not quit!
