How to Keep Going When You Feel Like Giving Up

Instant success is a myth, always. Many successful people failed hundreds of times, if they chose to give up instead of working harder to reach their goals, they would never succeed. That is the reason why many people never succeed.  Our brains are wired to immediate rewards in return. We’re born to look for instant gratification because in the ancient times, getting immediate benefits was essential for survival. We are very much present-oriented, and so when we’re not getting what we want immediately, we get anxious and want to give up. If you give up now, you’re probably giving up the very bright future and great results you will get.

Think back to the moment that this project, goal, or concept was conceived. Remember the joy and thrill of the adventure ahead? At the beginning, you had a goal in mind; a beautiful picture etched in your mind of the finished task. Beginning was simple; carrying through has become difficult. I promise there are so many other people out there that are struggling with feelings of doubt, fear and frustration just like you are. If you chose to give up instead of working harder and trust in your project, you will never succeed.  Again, that is the reason why many people never succeed. Persistence is mainly the only difference between a success and a failure.



How to Keep Going When You Feel Like Giving UpPERSISTENCE.

Try and try again. Once you try to make a change or to find a solution to problems in your life, don't give up if the first solution doesn't work. Try something else and if that doesn't work, try something else. Perseverance may be the key. You need to be flexible, probably you need to pivot. Change, pivot, try, change again, pivot, try one more time. This is what I admire the most from Juan Imaz. He always stays positive. And we always find different ways... Life is beautiful if you keep on trying until you make your dreams come true :-)

Do you want to give up? You will regret it. Never give up!.

Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I love the water example and it's so true. When the vision is pure and purpose-driven there are going to be trials and chaos on the journey but if we only look at the beauty of life and the happiness in living it to the fullest everything would fall in place. Our success is a sum of all of our failures me thinks :)

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee writes "Try and try again. Once you try to make a change or to find a solution to problems in your life, don't give up if the first solution doesn't work". I say that the first trials are like a water faucet. When you open a faucet the first water drops are turbid and gradually they become later clean. Open your faucet of trials and don't be disappointed if the first drops are turbid with failure. Keep the water of effort running and clear success shall appear sooner or later.

"Success" as a notion is a talisman and the mythic history of humanity is based on the shoulders of superstitions and mythologies. Progress is not built on facts but on faith. There is a far more important notion than success, which is blessings. If one ends up being in the right lane and that lane takes us to success, then count your blessings. In a five year startup journey 80% of folk in those other lanes will have failed. In other words failure is the fact, but we are so psychologically dependent on this idea of success, that success rather than blessings becomes the central axis point of our thinking. The chief lesson Steve Jobs taught me is that we only count the dots backward to make sense of our success. Success then is an outcome and not a religiosity. If we need to beam the holy word of success to each other, that is a religion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMWqyG5ocW8 It is not positive thinking that I am focused on, nor notions of success. I am focused on developing an integrated mind where I am no longer a prisoner of my own thoughts or the victim of other people's thinking. That freedom is elusive, but it is the only form of success that is meaningful to me. Of course, Steve Jobs in his "Connect the Dots Backwards" remark is offering another form of faith because his pathway created his resilience and not his faith. Blessings are however a greater mindset then faith, as Steve Job's biographer noted http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/apple/8841347/Steve-Jobs-regretted-trying-to-beat-cancer-with-alternative-medicine-for-so-long.html Too late sometimes to connect the dots backwards and the really start counting our blessings.

Hold the joy in your mind for all time! With luck you will exceed it but there is never quite the same feeling as when your idea begins to come to live. And remember, not everyone can feel this rapture!

Harvey Lloyd many thanks for your support. Exactly, Detractors and naysayers along the way tend to cherry pick perfection within a journey they do not fully understand, nor appreciate, but they can not understand because they don't see your personal efforts ;-). thank you again.

Since we are not going to succeed at everything, not only must we have perserverance and persistence, but also the ability to know when to quit.

Your points are well taken. But the obstacles to success are the challenge. Detractors along the way tend to cherry pick perfection within a journey they do not fully understand, nor appreciate. Balancing risk/reward along the way is unique to each start up. I am a slow learner, late adopter and not a good listener when it comes to comments that couldn't get the big picture if it were hanging around their neck. Success is what you want it to be, no magic formula or outside measures. Just your own. I had a mentor who picked me up when i had fallen pretty far with my business. It seemed like the perfect storm had several brothers and sister storms who showed up all at one time. He made a statement that calmed the seas. This is your business and the future of it is the script you write. Don't allow others to write your script. Listen and learn but your script is yours. Believe in your script. Every picnic seems to have its fly's. Don't let them detract from the original thoughts and plans. I don't fully understand the challenges of such a large enterprise, but my hat is off to your efforts and your struggles to compete in the market you have chosen. You have done well from my chair and view. Keep the faith.

Thanks for the response Don \ud83d\udc1d Kerr I appreciate that. I guess it all comes down to interpretation, I took the post as a general "pep talk", didn't think that there was enough information to draw specifics, ie. business vs. personal, but maybe there's some things going on "behind closed doors" that I'm not aware of. (yes I'm hearing "rumblings" but until I see it in "black and white" I'll refrain from making any judgement calls, Again, as I said on your last post, possibly I'm naive and "missing the boat") Have a great day Buddy!

Sounds just like dancing the Tango lots of pivots takes 2 (or more teachers & partners over time) step by step have to be totally absorbed no giving up need a lot of practice to be more than just good at it chic enjoyable takes a lifetime to master Tenacidad, Vamos.

Hi Randall Burns While i am not doing much here anymore couldn't help but responding to your comment because I respect you. I think, in terms of personal life, the adage about the journey is well taken and relevant. In terms of a business endeavouring to create shareholder/stakeholder value - not so much. Knowing the destination, striving to get there, delivering on promises and intention, setting and visibly achieving milestones, acknowledging failures and finding ways to remedy - these are all things that must be and be seen to be happening. Hope all is well with you and that you continue to cook up a great journey in your life. Respect.

Excellent encouragement Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee -- But -- sometimes - we must be able to reach out for help when it is needed. Sometimes people are afraid to ask for help. We see the opposite in little children as they grow up - the stage when they "want to do myself" - and if they succeed - this is great! Some time later, they discover help is needed. And too often -- the kids train their parents to respond and do everything for them . . . . . .

Success means different things to different people...it's all a matter of your own personal definition of success...How is it that you wish to be remembered? None of us gets out of here alive, and we can't take the fancy cars, boats, houses and such with us when we go...But we do leave behind a 'footprint' of who we are/were while we lived...So live well, do the best you can with whatever situation you find yourself in...and be humble and kind to your fellow human beings...If there is one thing we absolutely cannot fail at, it is being human...warts and all;-)

Great post Javier \ud83d\udc1d beBee Here's a perspective that I always try to maintain; "It is the journey, not the destination that is important" Basically we are all rushing to die, that is our ultimate destination, no "ifs, ands or buts", about that. I'm going to enjoy and appreciate every moment that I have, and take every day as a gift.
