Giving up is a choice!

I was having a conversation with someone few days ago about giving up. He said that when a person gives up, it’s because they have tried everything and that’s the reason they have this kind of an attitude of someone who wouldn’t wish to push the limits further.

I disagree to the extent that I feel, one can’t and shouldn’t give up when it’s something that other people have also achieved. For example, if a person says “I can’t reach the top of Mount Everest” then that would be a statement that holds absolutely no strength, because there have been numerous people just like you and I, who have reached the top of Mount Everest, on the other hand referring to a very common thing we go through in our lives is applying for new jobs. Lots of people give up when they can’t get the job they applied for.

Remember, you won’t get the job you are looking for if you don’t apply for the one you are most suitable for, simple as that. So if you are good in designs, applying for a job that requires a guy who is good with light bulbs won’t do the trick. And when you finally get in for the interview, NEVER EVER LIE! Yes, It’s in CAPS, because I feel that when you lie to get a job, you won’t manage to stay for long.

Honesty is definitely the best policy, if you want to stick around. When you can’t do something, just say it, don’t twist people around.

In order to succeed, just go deaf!

This world is a beautiful place to live in, but at the same time we often are faced with hardships and issues that make us wonder if we are capable of handling them. In certain cases we are dragged down by people around us who make us feel that we are unable to do what we are planning. But if you really think about it, the only limit they are forcing upon your thoughts and goals is their own.

A person can manage a lot more if he or she just focuses on their own strengths, because otherwise there is no chance of success and one will never manage anything.

I read a cute story few years back which struck me very well.

Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs who arranged a running competition.
The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see the race and cheer on the contestants….
The race began….

Honestly: No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs would reach the top of the tower.

You heard statements such as:   “Oh, WAY too difficult!!”

“They will NEVER make it to the top.”

The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one.

Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher and higher….
The crowd continued to yell, “It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!”
More tiny frogs got tired and gave up….

But ONE continued higher and higher and higher….

This one wouldn’t give up!

At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower. Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort, was the only one who reached the top!

THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know how this one frog managed to do it?
A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found the strength to succeed and reach the goal?

It turned out….

That the winner was DEAF!!!!

How wonderful :) So my friends.. be deaf once in a while of all negativity that stops you, there is nothing that can hold you back. If you believe in an idea, go for it!
