Giving up is a choice!

G

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.
