Giving up should be in not an options even though w were facing a lot of setbacks, surprises and situations that will make us wanting to give up in our life. And I’m pretty sure all of us had face this kind of trouble including me. Sometimes we give up after we failed, sometimes we give up just before a breakthrough and sometimes we give up without even trying.
But what if i tell you this kinds of feeling had been faced so many times by the highly successful people and the difference is they just don’t quit until they did it. And yes, that is the secret. Just don’t give up no matter what happens. So why the hell should we give up? Our motto would be if they can do it, so can I.
The point is, these past failure and setbacks are just a temporary defeats. You have not failed if you are still trying or working on your dreams. Which means you are still on the road to victory. So below, I had provided 4 great reason why you should never ever giving up hope on your dreams.
1. You have everything you need.
Your main resources would be persistence,commitment and believes in yourself not money and powerful connection. Because the one who are going to work on your dreams is YOU not your money. Yes of course money can helps you a lot but whenever there is a few setbacks, problems or temporary defeats, your money wont help get back up but your commitment and your believes are.
Moreover, if don’t have any talent or knowledge, you don’t worry about it because you can learn these skills or knowledge. Why? Because everything is written inside a book. In fact, you can learn about anything that you want. If you want to become a professional golfer, you can learn how to golf. If you want to build a rocket, you learn how to build a rocket. Hey, nobody is perfects right.
Remember there were once when a reporter ask Elon Musk where did he learn how to build a rocket, he would answer, I learned it from reading books. Additionally, most of us, we are not born genius but we can learn how to become one and most of the billionaires are far from genius. Success is a skill that you can learn. So keep on learning and learn everything until you become a millionaire. If you can do this, I promise you that, there is no one in this world can stop you from reaching towards your dreams.
2. Success is for one who never give up.
The right saying for this point is, “If it was easy everybody would do it“. Either you become millionaires or die trying. That is our only options. Pick one only and I hope you pick the first one. So don’t ever give up on your life no matter what happens. If you failed so many time, do not worry about it. Instead of feeling down, embrace it and said now “I just found out another way that does not works“. And then, proceed as usual. Like Elon Musk said in one interview, “the two reasons that i would give up are either I die or I incapacitated“. No wonder he is now worth 15 billions.
3. Rome was not built in one day.
Lao Tzu said it best, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” and sometimes it takes a lot of time to achieve your dreams. Sometimes it takes a lot of energy, a lot of hard works and sometimes a lot of money. One trick for you that i get from The Success Principles(TM) – 10th Anniversary Edition: How to Get from Where You Are to Where You Want to Be is, whenever you face a setbacks or failure while working towards your goals. Go in front of the mirror and said “No matter how hard it is, how bad it gets, I am going to make it“. Said it out loud and said it for a few times. Then, get back to your works because that is what a champion would do. Champion get back up whenever they fall and so do YOU!
4. Inspire others.
Like Muhammad Ali and the others. One of the way is by setting an example. Hey, you never know who are inspiring at. Sometimes they are your friends, sometimes they are your siblings and sometimes they are your haters or even your enemies (if you have any). Inspiring others is also how you can start to give back to the society. Guiding and motivating them are more than enough to inspire them.
Here’s a video for you to inspire you a little bit. Check it out.
5. You are so close.
Why? Because even if your success is just around the corner you would never know. They only think you can know is by keep on pushing forwards. The trick is so simple which is don’t give up. That’s all you need to do. You would never know what will happen next. How far have you gone? How close are you to success? The one thing you should is that there is no going back and the only way is forwards.
On the other hand, if you are happen to be a readers, the right books for you about “never ever giving up” category would be these two books below. These are two biography books that tells you how exactly did these two billionaires work tirelessly day and night. They sacrifice everything. Their money, their house and their car just to make their dreams come true. They are the living definition and a legend when it comes to never ever giving up on your dreams. Beware, read at your own risk. If you feel unstoppable and so pump up to reach your dreams after you read this books. Be prepare to go all in!
The two books would be:
Why this book? Because Elon Musk spotlights the technology and vision of Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and innovator behind SpaceX, Tesla, and Solar City, who sold one of his Internet companies, PayPal, for $1.5 billion.
He is the guy who had been called the real life Tony Stark and one of the current most promising inventor and entrepreneur in the Silicon Valley. Mr Ashlee Vance (the author) also did a very great job captures the full spectacle and arc of the genius’s life and his work, from his tumultuous upbringing in South Africa and flight to the United States to his dramatic technical innovations and entrepreneurial pursuits.
As Musk says, “If something is important enough, even if the odds are against you, you should still do it.”
As for this book, you will meet a genuine American folk hero cut from the homespun cloth of America’s heartland named Sam Walton. A normal man who parlayed a single dime store in a hardscrabble cotton town into a Walmart, the largest retailer in the world. A company worth billions of dollars until today.
The undisputed merchant king of the late twentieth century, Sam never lost the common touch, his hard work and his commitment towards the end of his life. Genuinely modest, but always sure to reach his ambitions and achievements. In this book, Sam shares his thinking in a candid, straight-from-the-shoulder style. Totally worth your time.
In a nut shell, fight even if you have remorse or even if you have regrets. You must proceed and fight. Giving up is not an option. If you have made the decision for yourself to fight, to struggle. Then fight with all you have. Do not give up for one second,one moments or one instant. Cling greedily to the victory you have within your sight. If you can still stand, if your finger can still move, if your teeth are still not broken. Stand and fight. You must fight. be strong guys!
