What a Waste of Time

When you give up, you’re devaluing your time. Instead of wasting your time, take a step back for a moment and really analyze what’s going on in your life that’s motivating you to throw in the towel.

Whatever you do, don’t allow your time to be wasted.

You’re Only Hurting Yourself

At the end of the day, we all want to see you succeed, but if you don’t, you’re the only one who’s ultimately affected. Just because you gave up doesn’t mean everyone else is.

If you want to succeed and turn your dreams into a reality, it’s going to take work. There will be pain, and there will be a lot of times where you feel like giving up is your only option. Keep pushing, and never give up–quitters never win.

Failure is Important

It’s important to fail because it teaches you valuable life lessons.

Instead of perceiving failure as a negative, look at it as a chance to reset and start again refreshed. It may feel like the end of the world, but it’s never over as long as you’re still breathing.

Don’t be too attached to comfort. Other people have much worse problems than you.

You’re Almost There

Every moment of your life is past the point of no return. You’re not going to eventually end up back in the womb. All you can do is move forward in life, and the reason why is because wherever you’re at or whatever you do, you can’t turn back time.

Keep repeating to yourself, “Don’t stop. You’re almost there.”

Someone Else Will

Everyone goes through tough times, and while giving up may ease your stress, it doesn’t make your goal disappear–someone else will just come through and accomplish whatever it was you were hoping to accomplish. And it’s all your fault for giving up. If you can’t live with the idea of someone else enjoying the fruits you labored for, it’s a good idea to get up and keep pushing.

Giving up?

No matter how successful you are in life and business, success doesn’t give you immunity from humanity. We all have days where we don’t want to get out of bed. But…what happens when this feeling lasts for days or weeks or months? What happens when we feel like we’ve lost purpose and we just want to give up, whether on a career or relationship?

Over the last 12 years, through creating and selling multiple companies to now working with business owners, I’ve identified the seven things you need to do when you feel like giving up.
