Never Give Up
Most of us are familiar with the old saying, "Quitters never win, and winners never quit." There will always be difficulties, problems, and troubles to overcome in life. But giving up has never been the solution to any adversity you might encounter. Every individual should resolve within his/herself to-never give up.
Don't allow circumstances to make you bitter about life. Push through the problem and it will make you better. Push forward, don't entertain doubt and don't consider "giving up," because you should not allow it as an option. There is nothing to gain by 'giving up' and everything to gain if you don't. Why? Because what you practice becomes a habit. It can become an escape mechanism for you to use every time things get complicated, difficult, or unpleasant; you just give up. Bad habits are hard to break. You certainly don't want to teach those who may be watching you to see you as an individual who faints and gives up in the face of adversity. Remember every "hero" in life does not receive a medal from an admiring crowd. There are many unsung heroes who just won't give up on themselves, some who won't give up on you. There is a reward of personal worth in "never giving up."
Make a life style of never giving up on those things that are positive in your life. Never give up on yourself and this begins with laying a foundation for determining what are those valuable things in your life that deserve your perseverance to continue with. Grant it, there are some things that don't deserve your undivided effort to continue. You need to have some criteria for those things that do deserve your continued attention and energy to keep it viable. You begin with your life style and the goals you have in your life. For example, you should never give up on your education. You should never give up on making yourself a better individual through dreams, goals, helping others, etc.
If you keep forging on, something good will happen. You will be looking and observing to see a change for the better. Sometimes, only you can recognize when that change occurs, simply because it may be so small others may not detect it. Never giving up is important to your mental stability. Never giving up affects your life style and the people "you hang out with." Surround yourself with people who generate positive feelings; they will help you not to 'give up.'
Never giving up is a choice. When you decide never to give up, you decide that if you continue in your effort, a way will reveal itself and you will accomplish your goal or your purpose. This becomes your attitude about everything you endeavor to do. This becomes the way you see life. You choose to see yourself as able to overcome life's challenges because you will never give up or in to them. Never giving up becomes how you see the world and how the world sees you. You build up your "never giving up" muscle and never giving up is no longer an option, It is a way of life, enriching you and enabling you to enrich others' lives.
