Always give 110% in everything you do. It might not always be easy and you may feel like giving up, but it will be worth it in the end. There are many reasons why we need to push ourselves, to do well at school, get a job promotion, train for the marathon or build business.
Doubts are placed in our mind to challenge us and deter is from our goals. However, we should never let them. It is always important to stay focused.
Entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs and Richard Branson, and athletes like Cathy Freeman and Sally Pearson did not get to where they are by giving 50%. They put their heart and soul into what they wanted to achieve.
It’s normal to feel like giving up, and there may have been times where these successful people felt like that too. However, those who are successful, suck it up and continue to push towards their goals and dreams.
Always minimise the temptation that will allow you to fail. Don’t allow yourself to be around things that will be a distraction and keep focused on the end result. When you push a little harder each day you will get closer to your goals. There will be ups and downs, with things not going your way, but life would not be interesting if it was perfect.
If you think about giving up, ask yourself these few questions and think whether you are making the right decision.
- What is the worst thing if you continuing trying?
- Are you afraid of succeeding?
- Would you be better off if you give up?
Don’t give up if you do not get what you want straight away. The only thing from stopping you achieve what you want is you!
