Change Your Course And Learn As Much As You Can!
I have always lived by the philosophy, NEVER GIVE UP. I still wholeheartedly believe in this mantra but what does it actually mean? Should I give it everything I got even though nothing I seem to do gets me closer to my goal? Hoping one day the results will change. This could actually be harmful to your health and/or finances. Even though you have a true conviction for something, doesn’t mean you risk it all. Not everything you try is going to come to fruition. That doesn’t mean you stop trying. Be relentless but change your course! Be careful not to continue down a path too long that doesn’t give you the results you want.
Three important questions to ask yourself when deciding if it is time to change course:
- Have I put too much time and energy into this project without results? Remember, don’t give up too soon. This can be a very fine line. You may want to discuss with your closest confidants. Getting some outside advice may give you a clearer picture.
- Has this goal become a financial burden on me? I understand you have to invest in yourself but there are limits. Especially when you have not experienced results.
- Am I still excited about it? Be honest with yourself. Do you still go to sleep and wake up thinking about your project or are you going through the motions?
You have to keep learning and growing. In my opinion, the statement “Never Give Up” means you challenge and push yourself beyond your wildest thoughts and beyond what you thought was possible. People will either admire your tenacity or question your principles. That is why people give up. They are too worried about what others think. Don’t allow people to cripple you. Be brave and you will run the race, chose your course, and cross the finish line.
I watch this video whenever I need a boost. It reminds me that as long as I don’t give up, I won’t fail. I hope you enjoy!
