This quote is timely because of the U.S. presidential election. But this post isn’t about politics.
It’s about never giving up.
If a situation is too difficult or complicated, I tend to get overwhelmed and want to stop. Give up.
When my husband points this out, I feel frustrated and disagree. “I’m not giving up. It just isn’t working!” It’s hard to admit, but I know he’s right.
I sincerely appreciate his encouragement. It’s made me a better person, more willing and able to keep forging ahead.
Here’s some of my husband’s advice, which I do my best to follow:
- Be persistent.
- Take the initiative. Don’t wait for someone else to do it for you.
- If there’s an obstacle in your way, change paths.
- There are more ways than one to reach your destination.
- Put more time in to solving the issue.
- If one person can’t help you, talk to someone who can.
- Either find a way or make one.
- Do not give up.
It’s still challenging for me if things don’t fall into place according to my timing. But I’ve learned to be patient and take small steps toward the main goal. To stay diligent and not expect miracles overnight.
The most important thing? Never give up hope.
