Obstacles are a fact of life. Things are always getting in your way, pushing you back and challenging you until you either give up or break through the barrier.
Think of a tiny little seed, buried deep into the dirt. The seed has to fight its way towards the light, battling other plants for water, nutrients and space. It has to survive extreme weather conditions, animals and humans to make its way to the sky. Every day the little seed fights, survives and grows to its full potential.
“Nature is always giving us examples of demonstrating why we should never give up.”
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9.
We all must face obstacles in our life, it’s what challenges us to grow and evolve but sometimes it’s completely normal to lose all enthusiasm and drive that you have for something, whether at the very beginning or half way through.
My top 5 tips will help to keep you going to make sure you never give up on the things that matter!
- Be Passionate
The easiest way to succeed with something is to be passionate about it. If what you’re doing makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning because you just can’t wait to get started, you’ll have a much better attitude and therefore, a much better chance of succeeding.
- Learn from Your Mistakes
Failure is not permanent, not if you’re willing to get back up and try again. Take every setback in your stride and use it to make better, more informed decision when faced with similar obstacles in the future.
Simply believing that a negative situation is merely a temporary state will clear your mind, giving you the motivation to carry on.
- Surround Yourself with Positivity
Negativity drags you down. It drains productivity and motivation. One of the best ways to make your life more positive is to cut out anyone who brings a rain cloud of misery with them.
It might seem harsh, but you’ll be much happier in the long run. Surrounding yourself with like-minded, motivated individuals will help to push you even further towards your dreams and ambitions.
- Believe in Yourself
“Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear.” – Meg Cabot
Believing in yourself can be scary, especially if no one is standing in your corner. But, if you do truly believe in yourself and have faith and courage in what you can achieve, nothing will stand in your way.
It’s easy to give up when things start going wrong, what’s difficult, yet most rewarding is persevering, against all odds, to achieve something that you believe in.
- Have Patience
Remember that all good things come to those who wait. Success does not happen overnight and everything worth doing requires hard-work, determination and motivation.
Include all three in everything you do and you’re guaranteed to succeed at whatever it is you choose to do.
- Bonus Tip: Persevere, Be Resilient!
As a bonus tip, I wanted to stress the overall importance of never giving up. Resilience is key, especially if you feel your commitment to something or your motivation beginning to wane; think about why you started. Think about what you’ve achieved so far and think about how great it’s going to feel when you’ve done it, when you’ve reached your goal!
