What future is there, in giving up?
How often have you heared stories about how people gave up, just before they reached their expectation?
Are you in the habit of truncating processes simply because you did not encounter your desired result at the expected time?
Have you not realised that neither worry nor anxiety has ever contributed positively to any situation, how much more; hopelessness?
My point is that we often have expectations, and because we equally have challenges; we backout.
Is it possible to have a victor without a battle or a winner without a contest?
Dreams are pictures or scenes that keep us going each day, inspiring us towards a better future. Without hope, dreams cannot have life. Dreams are the seeds that grow into a beautiful future, if they are properly nutured.
Nuturing dreams involves acquiring knowlege, skills and experience that both enhance and emphasise the possibility of achieving them.
It takes processes to arrive at certain destinations.
Certain steps are required to achieve certain results.
Giving up on the process is simply giving up on the results as well.
I once saw an interesting comic representation or cartoon of a man who was drilling, digging into or cutting through some sort of wall with an axe.
The first clip, frame or picture showed a massive lump of a glittering precious metal positioned at a huge distance from where the man was escavating.
The next frame showed that he had done a lot of excavation and was very close to reaching the precious metal.
On the final frame, the man was walking away from the excavation point with his axe placed on his shoulder and the excavation, only a hairs breadth to the precious metal.
How close do we get to sealing up a deal before we abandon it?
How near to resolving issues, do we get, only to walk away?
The future would always be more colourful than the present if we keep adding colours as we approach.
Abandoning a farm to weed and pests simply means an impovrished harvest at reaping time.
Giving up on a process is simply giving up on the expected result.
When we talk of a future; a bright future, we refer to conditions much more comfortable and enjoyable than the present.
Can there be a future if there is neither hope nor faith in the picture?
Can one continue when he or she has given up?
Does it really matter what your excuses are?
There is no future in giving up.
Now that it is obvious that giving up would do more harm than good, what are we expected to do when we face challenges?
“When the going gets tough, the tough gets going”.
Success is for the tough.
It takes the tough to continue despite numerous odds.
How tough are you willing to be?
Your ability to delay gratification determines your capacity to have reserves for the future.
Consistency is important if there must be a remarkable change.
Don’t just quit on your exercises or terminate your practice.
Don’t give up on the reform or the project, except you have found a more worthy venture or alternative.
It takes the tough to get going, when the going gets tough.
When faced with challenges, equip yourself better with both information and motivation.
Embarking on a task to trim weight or to build muscles, requires regular excercise.
Knowing what manner of excercise and having sufficient motivation to keep up with it, is what increases the chance of success.
Motivation can be affected by association.
Do you move along with winners or quitters?
Are your close allies sharing the same visions, goals or objectives as you?
Are your friends a distraction from your dreams or do they motivate you towards achieving them?
The bulk of what you will have to either enjoy or suffer in the future are dependent on how you go about your present…
Once again, I’ll ask; are you always giving up on important matters?
That’s the same as giving up on the result that finishing holds.
Most successful businesses were painstakingly built with principles and ideologies that preserve and promote their objectives.
How willing are you to work towards a beautiful future?
Are you willing to do what it takes, without giving up?
Society has a way of forcing us to comform to it’s patterns by accepting limitations and working only around our basic routine.
Has it not occured to you that if you keep hovering around the same people and doing the same things that you have always done, you may as well, keep getting the same results that you have always gotten.
Accepting not to make a positive change, is one form of giving up.
Abandoning our dreams or settling for less than our ideal, is also a way of giving up.
There may never be perfect conditions to start, but we can build a beautiful future, as long as we are willing to painstakingly put piece to piece and block on block, until we have what we want.
There is no future in giving up.
The future lies in continuing.
Slow and steady wins the race.
Work towards the future of your dreams consistently without giving up.
You can do it.
