7 Reasons to Keep Going

Y ou probably heard it before: ‘Never ever, EVER give up!’ And then maybe there were moments you thought: ‘And why shouldn’t I?’

At one time or another we all get to a point in the journey we call life where we feel like giving up. Sometimes we give up before we even start. Other times we give up just before we are about to make that huge breakthrough that we have been putting so much effort in to achieve.

Being human makes you one of the most resilient and strongest beings on earth. You are practically legendary.

Compared to people who lived just 100 years ago you know a lot more than they did and you are 1000 times more connected and up to date then they could even imagine.

There are a countless number of positives inside of you that you probably don’t even realize. And every now and then, when you lose motivation, a quick reminder of what your potential is can really help. Just always keep in mind that to taste success you are always faced with temporary defeat. If you give up at these defeats you will fail, but if you keep going you will become successful.

Here is a list of seven reasons why you should never give up. I hope that you will find it before you give up, so that I can inspire you to just keep going! In the end everything will be okay. And if it is not okay, it is not the end…

You are alive and you can!

As long as you are alive, anything is possible. The only valid excuse you have to give up is if you are dead, and you are reading this, so… As long as you are alive [and healthy and free] you have the choice to keep trying until you finally succeed. If you put your mind to it, you can do anything.

Believe in your dreams

Don’t sell yourself short and don’t let anybody bring you down. In life there are going to be many people who will try to bring you down and tell you what you want to achieve is not possible. Don’t let anyone destroy your dreams. If you can dream it, you can do it! There have been millions of dreamers before you and if they had given up the world wouldn’t have been the same.

You are so close!

Don’t quit before the miracle happens. So many of us do. It might be really tough now, but it can all instantly change. If you keep going at it you never know when you’ll hit a breakthrough. Often when you are about to give up you are so close to making a huge breakthrough. At any given time you are always just a heartbeat away from success. Stay with it.

Inspire others

Be an inspiration to others by refusing to give up. Try your hardest. You never know who is watching.Who knows what someone else can achieve because you never gave up and in turn inspired them not to give up. Maybe you have children or siblings that look up to you. Be someone else’s hero!

You have no other option

If you don’t keep going, what will you do? If you give up you will become numb, shut down. You might as well hang the ‘Out Of Order’-sign on your heart and your life. Your will to be great ends… Isn’t that scarier than what you are feeling now?

There are people worse off

Right now there are many people who are in a worse situation and environment than you are right now. The situation could be a lot worse and you should be thankful for being able to face what you are facing, because there are people out there who have much bigger problems.

You are strong!

You have the strength to do whatever you want. No matter the amount of setbacks you face you have the strength to keep going. No one can go through life without pain, hurt or regrets. Accept these experiences and learn from them. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and look your scars as causes for strength. Every single day you are getting better and better, and stronger and stronger!
