Never Give Up

There are basically two wrong things to do in any life situation.

1)    Give up

2)    Do nothing

There are a multitude of potentially useful or right things to do.

For instance, if things aren’t going the way you planned, you can learn more, plan better, do more, do a lot more, do something different, revise your game plan, find someone that’s gotten to where you want to be and ask for their help, work harder, work smarter, find a partner, find a better partner, get rid of the wrong partner, find a mentor, find a better mentor, etc.

You can also find out what’s motivating you, what’s your passion, why do you want what you want. If you say you want to be rich, why? What would being rich enable you to do? If you want more free time, why? What do you want to do with that free time? Travel, study, go back to school, be a missionary? What’s your real objective?

I read a great book on this subject a couple years ago called “Living With Passion” by Peter L. Hirsch. In Chapter 3, he gives an exercise in figuring out your purpose and values.

Once you have that thing, that passion, that goal, your why in front of you, it becomes much harder to give up on yourself and easier to motivate yourself to do whatever you need to do to turn the situation around.

Quotes To Help Keep You Motivated

Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.  – Calvin Coolidge

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.  Theodore Roosevelt

I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious.  – Vince Lombardi
