Never Give Up

On your journey, whether it’s a personal goal, a new business venture or a career ladder climb, people WILL try to get in your way.

It may be a competitor company trying to step on the little guy to ‘teach ‘em a lesson’, a former employee or business partner trying to get in your way out of spite or to emotionally blackmail you or in a lot of cases, friends and family taking the opportunity to tell you how stupid you are, how ridiculous your goals are, how you’re going to fail …. Dramatically and how they won’t be there to pick you up off the floor when you land in a heap.

But what separates you from them, is determination, your drive to keep pushing, no matter what they say or throw at you. In fact, the more ridiculous the goal, the better it feels to accomplish it and show everyone who ever doubted you what drive can accomplish.

Never let the negatives people will hurl at you affect your determination, expect it and know to push on because the podium finish will be that much better when you reach it.

We know it gets hard sometimes, that it all surmounts and you feel as though you can’t continue – the burden (financial, emotional) is all too much and you can’t see a way through the roadblock to push on. 

This is your goal, not anyone else’s, no one will notice if you just give up – right? 

Whether you know it or not, you may at this very moment, be someone’s inspiration. Someone watching your journey through social media, someone who has perhaps heard of your journey through word of mouth or a piece of good press and was personally touched by your progress. Whether you believe your story is extraordinary or not, whether you believe that your goal is personal or not, it could be extraordinary to that person, could affect them in such an overwhelmingly positive manner to push them follow in your footsteps, or forge a path of their own on your inspiration. 

Never give up – whether there’s a whole crowd following you or just one person, if your goal, your journey, if you as a person, are enough to inspire even just one person into taking an action of their own, isn’t it worth continuing? Isn’t it worth pressing on to find that extra ounce of strength usually reserved for fight or flight scenarios? – what is this if not the time to fight? 

We are not the type to give up. It’s Fight or Flight –  our fight, is the drive to fight for what we believe in and the things we want to achieve, our flight is the wings to fly above our roadblocks, to soar into new territory, new adventures, new heights of achievement. 

You are extraordinary, your story, your experiences are what have made you you, what have brought you to this point, what have pushed you through inevitably challenging times and that is empowering, that is motivating and THAT is what is inspiring. 

Never give up. It’s fight or flight. Fight for what you want, soar above the road blocks and keep believing the way others believe in you.
