Word of the Day:Do not give up.
The most stunning thing about athletes is that they always finish the race. It doesn’t matter if they finish first or last, the important thing is that they try their level best to cross the finish line. I know that winning the race is quite a thrill and coming in last is not fun either, but the worst thing of all is quitting at the middle of the race. I understand that there are some situations that might compel you to go no further, but if it’s not a matter of life and death, try to hold on and see what lies ahead.
Most of us have a tendency of starting something with a lot of steam, only to abandon it halfway when faced with challenges. Flashback through your life and think about all the times that you have abandoned your ship just because you sensed a storm coming, only to turn out to be a small passing wind. Think about all the relationships and all the business ideas that you left halfway done. Was the change of heart really worth it?
When it seems like ‘this is the end, like there is no hope, like we have to stop and turn around or like we are finished’, that’s when you get that energy to push forward. Only stop because the situation doesn’t allow it and not because someone told you so. Let’s keep trying, because there’s more to life than giving up.
” And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. ”
