Never give up……..don’t stop faster than you start. Successful people all understand that the only way out is through. At times we throw ourselves into projects and situations, and when we don’t see “immediate results” we often give up before we have given ourselves a chance to accomplish what we set out to do. Giving up on something is a defining moment in our lives, one that merits careful consideration.
The truth is that we give up too quickly, we live in a disposable world that wants instant gratification and when we don’t get it we go looking for something else. It is too easy to stop and too difficult to persevere. If only we knew how incredibly close we are to realizing our hearts desire; we would choose more often to engage the magic that comes from thinking, speaking, and acting in line with everything that we aspire to…….
Robin Sharma said “The mark of a strong character lies not in doing what is fun to do or what is easy to do. The sign of deep moral authority appears in the individual who consistently does what he ought to be doing rather than what he feels like doing. All too often, we spend our days waiting for the ideal path to appear in front of us. We forget that paths are made by walking, not waiting.”
