Life is hard. This is no secret. Sometimes it can feel that everything is being sent to try you and try as you might, you will be sinking deeper and deeper. When things are getting tricky and you cannot see a way out, it becomes all the more tempting to simply give up. Believe me I know. However, it is vital that you never give up. Even when the light at the end of the tunnel has gone out.
I have been through some lows in my life, however, one thing that I have never ever been tempted to do is give up. It is my aim to make sure that other people do the same. Rather than dragging others down with you, we should all be working together to help one another out of the tunnel, trying our best to find the light again. But what is the importance of never ever giving up?
Settling is not always a good thing to do
Whilst there may be some times when you need to acknowledge that you have done the best that you can, this doesn’t mean that settling is something that you should just do. In fact, settling can have quite the opposite impact. When you settle, you are resigning yourself to failure, which never means that you are going to achieve what you are capable of.
You need to learn that no-one is perfect
Of course, it can seem that some people are doing better than others, and in the most part this is true. But does this mean that they are perfect? Absolutely not. No-one is perfect, every single person on this planet, even those that have achieved world wide success, they have all made mistakes from time to time. In making these mistakes they have managed to grow, to change to become the person that they are today.
Things are never supposed to be easy
Being successful is never easy, in fact, there is very little in life that will be easy. This means that if you want something that much, you are going to have to work for it. At times it may seem like the simpler option just to let it slide, but when this pops up, you need to focus on your end goal instead.
Trying means that you have the chance to prove others wrong
There is no greater satisfaction then being able to prove someone wrong who didn’t believe in you. This should be enough to give you the push to achieve anything that you are setting your mind too. Even something that could seem as impossible as other people believe.
You should never feel envy in what other people are achieving, even when it seems that we are being left behind. Take inspiration in what these people can do, what they can achieve. Who knows, with some care, dedication and enthusiasm, you may find yourself achieving great things too.’
