It is only when we quit trying that we lose. Keep the faith and never give up, never stop trying.
Don’t let lifes’ little setbacks stop you from trying. No one said things would be easy or even that they would flow smoothly. In fact, sometimes it is in the challenges where you uncover the flaws. It is not just the effort but fixing the problems along the way that brings our vision into reality.
If you aren’t willing to do the work, you won’t get the results you are looking for. Everyone needs to execute each step, repeating as necessary, until everything is completed. If you cut corners the fact is you will have a job that is not complete.
You have to be willing to work at it. Just because something’s hard doesn’t make it impossible or not worth doing. That is how you learn, by doing something new and putting in the effort.
Athletes, while gifted with a natural talent, work hard at their sports, constantly honing and sharpening their skills. Their workouts and training are difficult but they don’t quit. They understand that in order to be at the top of their game they need to put in the effort and do the hard work.
If you lack confidence, you may find yourself wanting to quit but that is exactly when you need to dig deeper. Don’t quit on yourself, rather, invest in yourself. You are worth the effort.
My mother used to say ’anything worth doing is worth doing well’. To this day I believe that. I don’t quit because it is hard, nor do I cut corners. When things are hard I figure out what is missing, or what I need to do, and then I do it.
It’s one thing to change directions or change your mind, but it is another to quit just because something is hard. Quitting is the easy way out and can become habit forming. If you quit because it is hard you will continue to quit, never completing anything.
Do yourself a favour, remember that you and your dreams are worth the effort. You deserve to fulfill your dreams and reap the rewards. When things get hard, or you are confronted with challenges, roll up your sleeves and put in the work. Whatever you do, never give up and never stop trying.
