-This is harder than I thought it would be.
-Why is dis taking so long?
-I'm getting nowhere with dis.
-I keep failing at dis goal.
-I can’t do dis; What was I thinking?
1. Adopt An “I Won’t Quit” Mindset.
Not giving up is a mindset & it’s a mindset dt U can adopt even if all d tables are turned against U, keep going.
Constantly tell yourself:
-I will persist when things get tough.
-I will either find a way or make one
- Every day I gain more knowledge & insight about what works & what doesn’t, which means I’m getting stronger & wiser.
- Setbacks are temporary.
- I will find a way through this.
Winners are not people who never fail, but people who never quit. The moment you're ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens..
We can learn a lot by watching other people & learning to persevere is no exception. Watching others refuse to give up will strengthen your own resolve to keep going.
Tell yourself: “They didn’t quit, and neither will I.”
When you’ve been chasing an important goal for a while, but U haven’t made much progress & U feel like giving up, call someone whom U know will talk U out of quitting, such person are “goals sponsor”. Resist the urge to give up by calling your goals sponsor.
One of the most important steps in setting a goal is to create a list of all the reasons why you want to achieve that goal. In fact, if you discover that you don’t have a strong enough “why” for a particular goal, it’s probably a good idea to discard it.
Refusing to give up doesn’t mean dat you should simply keep doing d same thing over & over again. If d approach dat you’re currently using isn’t working, try a different approach. Continue until you find a method, technique or strategy that does work.
-I refuse to give up because I haven’t tried all possible ways.
-Wanting to give up is just a sign that a different approach is needed.
When you want to give up, write out & start brainstorming different alternatives you can try. Then, choose one of them & try it!
If you fail as you try to achieve your goal, instead of using that failure as an excuse to quit, use it as a stepping stone.
Obstacles are put in your way to see if what you want is really worth fighting for..
Just because you can’t see anything yet, although you’ve been working on your goal for awhile, this doesn’t mean that nothing is happening.
But Please Don't!
Don't be discouraged, it's often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.
Never, Ever, Ever Give Up!
