“I quit”… “I give up”…How many times have you said these words to yourself, till now?
Probably, every time when you feel like you are about to fail. No matter how devastating failures can be, it is nothing that can’t be handled. And so, it is better to try again than to give up completely. Giving up pulls you backwards and makes you lose all hope, leaving no room for growth as an individual and also as a human being. If you really wish to give up something, give up those negative feelings which drive you to fail.
Giving up is easy. Struggling for your goals is harder. Everyone has an impulse for urgency. We want quick results. Life has its own challenges, and why not, it is much more satisfying that way. So, everything will come to you and definitely will, but it takes time, a hell lot of time.
Giving up is also suicidal. When we give up, we take away the life from ourselves. All the negativity overshadows us. Just like sand slips away from our fist, our lives start to slip away bit by bit. Failures might throw us into depression longing us to harm ourselves.
But, giving up can also be motivating. It drives us nuts when we fail in job, in relationship, in projects or in promotions. When we give up, we get aggressive and the fire within us burns brighter motivating us to do better and to make it happen the next time. This drive doesn’t come when your emotions are negative. So be optimistic and believe in yourself.
How to drive away the feeling of “I quit”?
When you feel like giving up, ask yourself, “Why do I give up”? Don’t leave the arena so effortlessly. This list down might help you answer:
Be passionate and leave no stones unturned

Keep the goal alive in you and keep the picture in front

Make a foolproof plan and keep your options open
Nothing in the world comes without an option. What if you fail in this, something else might be much better for you. A good plan always works. Your plan must have a few alternatives, to give you choices.
