Have you had moments in your life when you feel like you just want to quit, you want to give up?
That no one is coming to help you, no one is coming to rescue you.
- No family members.
- No relatives.
- No friends
- No colleague
You have tried everything you possibly could to solve the problem that’s in front of you, and just feel like quitting?
Never Quit Never Give Up – Motivational Thoughts
I have had many, many of those moments in my life and in my career.
As an entrepreneur, I face various challenges, competitions, and problems, on a day-to-day basis.
- Challenge of getting new customers
- Challenge of doing marketing
- Challenge of managing working capital
- Challenge of managing manpower
- Challenge of meeting customer deadline
And there are many times in my life that I’ve felt maybe I couldn’t solve this problem, maybe I couldn’t overcome this, maybe I should just quit.
But most of the time I could able to overcome those problems.
The problems are a real teacher and here are things I’ve learned when I’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs in my life, career & business to get to where I am today, what do you do when you are down or you feel like you wanna quit.
When you feel like quitting, what do you do?
You see, whatever that’s in front of you, whatever obstacle that’s in front of you right now, and you feel like you have done everything you possibly could, that yes, I have tried everything to overcome this, my question to you is, have you tried everything?
- Have you talked to enough people?
- Have you read all the books that you could on this topic?
- Have you sought mentorship?
- Have you sought help?
- Have you done everything you possibly could?
- Have you taken all the actions that you possibly could to overcome this?
My guess is probably not.
Because if you had, you would have already gotten the results.
For example, In the year 2018 my friend’s restaurant business was going down. He was not getting enough customers. It was more than six months and his restaurant revenue touched nearly zero. He felt that he need to give up. He needs to shut down the business and start something else.
But, instead of quitting he took the help of a business consultant and identified key things which he needs to change in his business.
Based on advice from the consultant he made the following changes.
- He changed positioning instead of a restaurant he positioned it as a fast food parlor.
- He launched Fast food ordering App & tied up with food delivery partners.
- He started spending money on marketing and advertisement.
Guess what! Within 3 months his business touched new heights. He got a massive success.
You see, it’s never a matter of lack of resources, it’s always a lack of resourcefulness.
That you’re not creative enough, that we’re not creative enough, that we don’t think outside the box enough.
And sometimes when you get so close, so close to your goal, a lot of us just give up.
We quit when we are this close to achieving that goal.
You see, success is on the razor’s edge of failure.
When you think it couldn’t get any worse, when you think it couldn’t be worse than what you’re going through right now,
when you think it couldn’t be any tougher, that’s when a breakthrough happens.
Sometimes in life, you break down before you break through.
I have experienced this many times in my life, when I thought there’s no way I’m gonna get out of this, there’s no way it could get any worse.
And you know what’s very interesting?
Looking back, those are what I call learning moments.
- Those moments define who you are.
- Those moments shape who you are.
- They shape your character.
It trains you to be determined.
It teaches you tenacity. So next time, when you feel like you wanna quit, don’t quit.
Don’t quit on your vision, who you could be, who you see yourself that you could be.
That goal that you have, don’t quit on that.
You never quit on that. You’d die before you quit.
But success is not a straight line.
It’s never from point A to point B.
You always zigzag. So hold on to that, don’t ever forget that.
Focus on your vision.
- Don’t quit on your vision.
- Don’t give up on your vision.
- Don’t give up on yourself.
But you can pivot. Pivot on your approach.
- This doesn’t work?
- That’s okay, try this.
- That doesn’t work?
- That’s okay, try this, try this.
As long as you’re getting closer to where you wanna be, you’re winning.
- You’re learning, you’re growing.
- You’re breathing, you are winning.
You have that last breath.
As long as you don’t quit on your vision, you will get there.
But it’s okay to pivot on your approach.
Never Quit, Never Give Up – Success & Failure are part of life.
Remember – “Winners are not people who never fail, but people who never quit”.
