All of us at some point while pursuing our goals feel the need to throw in the towel. We go through challenges that seem insurmountable, we are knocked down, our motivation hits the wall and the most reasonable action to stop our suffering seems to be surrender. Yet, successful people teach us that what matters the most in life is to never give up. They teach us that after each fall the important thing is to get back up and try again, to never give up on our goals, and keep trying until we eventually succeed.
GIVING UP CANNOT BE AN OPTION!
Most of us forget that failure doesn’t exist, except when we take the decision to give up.
Giving up is a choice that doesn’t fix anything!
We may feel relieved for a short period of time.
As a matter of fact, we no longer have to confront the challenges that knock us down and we don’t need to work our asses off to get back up to achieve our goals, but then what?
We will be back to square one, unsatisfied with our lives!
Whether we’re trying to quit smoking, eating junk food, drinking, or any kind of bad habit; or whether we’re trying to achieve a goal; the misery we were experiencing will be back, in one way or another if we choose to give up.
In other words, in life, we can either pay the price of falling and getting back up to achieve our goals or the price of regret that comes from giving up.
If the former option weighs ounces and is temporary, the latter weighs tons and lasts a lifetime.
This is something that way too often we forget, but which on the contrary must always lead us, especially in the most difficult moments.
We should always keep in mind that giving up is the ultimate failure and one day looking back we will regret not getting back up and trying again.
GET BACK UP AND TRY AGAIN - A LESSON FROM GYMNAST DIEGO MATIAS HYPÓLITO
What you are going to watch is an example of extraordinary perseverance.
It took him 8 years, but in the end, he made it.
Hopefully, this one-minute video has struck a chord and triggered you to stand up once more and keep pursuing your goals no matter what.
Goals are the true essence of our lives, so they are worth chasing despite the hard work and time needed.
The choice to give up or keep getting back up is always in your own hands!
What are you going to do?
In life we need to learn not to give up, this is a vital attitude to experience success.
Great achievements never come easy, they require an awful lot of work, sweat, mental endurance, and TIME.
In today’s world, we are so used to having everything quickly and without too much effort that not giving up on our goals seems an impossible feat.
Too many of us abandon everything we could be or achieve because we lack the ability to hold out against setbacks.
If we allow ourselves to give up once, then, we’ll be more likely to do it over and over again without accomplishing anything in our lives.
On the contrary, if we persevere and we get back up, we’ll build the attitude of a champion.
Therefore, nothing will stand in our way to achieve our goals, and in time, like gymnast Diego Matias Hypólito, we won’t land on our faces or backsides, but we will land on our feet, heads held high!
“The secret of our success is that we never, never give up”. - Wilma Mankiller
