Life’s Most Important Lesson: Never Ever Give Up
An important lesson that I learned in my past is to never ever give up: Always persevere. If you fall down, then get back up and try again. It doesn’t matter if it is the first time, or the millionth time, you must always get back up again. Regardless of what challenges you are facing, you have to keep pushing forward. Life isn’t going to slow down for you, so you have to work to keep up. Each time you get up, that is more character, more strength you have developed. It is always important to set goals for yourself. Never stop reaching for the stars. Sometimes tomorrow is about learning from yesterday.

Change Can Be A Good Thing
Sometimes persevering means that you need to start over. If you are feeling depressed, you might need to make an important change in your life. For example, if you are unhappy in your career, you might need to consider a new job or business. If you are unsatisfied with your partner, you may need to make changes in your relationship, or find somebody new. If you are feeling down, it means that you have flat lined. You need to make the changes that are necessary to push your life into a positive direction.
Without Failure There Would Be No Story – Keep Going!
Another important fact to consider is that you don’t have to succeed at everything you do. Sometimes it just matters that you showed up to try. If you are unhappy with your performance, you can always try again tomorrow. People talk themselves out of trying because they are afraid of making a mistake. You can always make a mistake, and that is not an excuse to not even show up.
Some of the most famous people and companies started from humble beginnings. In their first year of business, Coca-Cola only sold 400 Cokes. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. Dr. Suess’ first children’s book, “And to Think that I Saw It on Mulberry Street”, was rejected by 27 publishers. Vanguard Press, the 28th publisher, sold 6 million copies of the book. The book, Chicken Soup for the Soul was turned down by 33 publishers before Health Communications agreed to publish it. Since then, over 7 million copies of Chicken Soup for the Soul, A 2ndHelping of Chicken Soup for the Soul, and the Chicken Soup for the Soul Cookbook have been sold worldwide, with the books translated into 20 languages.
If Michael Jordan, Dr. Suess, Coca-Cola, and the authors of Chicken Soup for the Soul, had given up, then they wouldn’t be the household names that they are today. These inspirational stories serve as living proof that if at first you don’t succeed, you must try and try again.
Always Grateful, But Never Settle
You must also appreciate the people who appreciate you. If somebody isn’t doing the right thing by you, then ask them to either change their ways or move on. You deserve nothing less than the best, and it is your responsibility to produce your best work for others. This is not limited to physical work, but also includes spiritual work. There is never a day when you can’t create or accomplish a new goal. Let life be a learning experience. Don’t let this year be another year of good intentions with unaccomplished goals. If you want to accomplish something, then you need to DO something about it!
To Never Ever Give Up doesn’t always mean you should keep at a useless cause. It means never ever give up on that great life you deserve. You might have to change your approach – the “how” you will get there – but just never ever give up on your dream life. There is always a way if you are willing to find a way!
