Giving up is common because it is one of the easiest things to do, besides making excuses. Have you ever tried to put a difficult puzzle together? Or better yet, have you ever tried to solve Rubik’s colored cube puzzle? Seems like every time I got close, I just gave up. Life makes you want to give up sometimes. I said life makes you want to give up sometimes. I know I’m talking to somebody. I can’t be the only one who has every felt that way. Well, I’m here to tell you that usually when you give up on something, you are actually closer than you think. “When you give up on something that is important to you, you set the mark for failure” (I’m GOOD, Chapter 8, pg 125).
It’s easy to get through life without facing obstacles, but those stories are only told in fiction books. I’ve had enough setups and setbacks to make me lose my mind. I thought all my problems would be solved after I graduated from college. Not. Then, I thought I could get away from them by moving to Texas because people seem to flourish there. Nope, not for me. If you only knew how difficult it was solving the puzzle in my own life, you wouldn’t throw the towel in just yet. I’ve had more no’s than yes’s. More failures than successes. More debt than credit. Did I survive? You bet!
As stated in my book, I’m GOOD, to be released in July of 2016, “Whatever is impeding your success, it is creating substantial stress in your life. Winning is never easy, but losing is even harder. Don’t let your losses be an excuse to give up. Opportunity only knocks where there is a door. You can’t be still standing and torn down at the same time. That’s an oxymoron! If you don’t have a plan for success, you can surely plan to fail.” Yep. You will fail because you gave up on yourself. If you really think about it, life gives you more than second chances. It’s not that you kept missing the ball. You stopped going for it.
