“Never give up, great things take time”
Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? The great life you’ve envisaged for yourself. Maybe an international business woman or a renowned scientist? It could even be that, as a mother, you dreamed of raising great kids like Ben Carson. But has it been looking like it? Are you actually working towards it? Or have you given up all hope due to the weights of life that challenge its fulfilment?
I want to remind you that many famous and successful men in the world had to fail over and over again to achieve what they aspired in life. Despite the odds against their dreams, they didn’t give up, so why would you?
Abraham Lincoln failed at war, and as a businessman. He even didn’t make it as a lawyer neither was his first try in politics successful. But he didn’t quit. He pushed on through and became president of the United States.
What about Thomas Edison? His teachers said he was “too stupid to learn anything.” He was fired from his first two jobs before “failing” 999 times attempting to invent the lightbulb. You can imagine what would have been said of him today if he had given up. Funnily enough, his invention of light bulb is being used to produce light from electricity till today.
A lot of times when it feels like you should give up and just let go of everything, the truth is you are no longer far from your feat. That is the exact moment you need to put in more effort and have unwavering belief in yourself. Your business may not go as planned. Your home may not be in it’s perfect condition at the moment. Your kids may not even be the best you desire for now. But I want you to hold your grit and never give up.
There are too many benefits that come with pursuing one’s dreams than giving up. Nobody celebrates failure! So keep shooting!
And it doesn’t matter how many times you tried and failed. It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down in life. All that matters is you get up one more time than you were knocked down and contend till you possess that which you desire. Don’t settle for less. Your dreams are achievable, only if you do not give up.
