THINGS TO DO WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE GIVING UP
Sometimes in our lives we tend to feel like we have hit the wall and we can’t move on. This is most of the time brought about by situations or occurrences in our lives. We feel like all is lost and we are at the end of the line. When things like this happen, we need to rise up, give ourselves hope and remind ourselves how far we have come. Just like the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
So whenever you feel like all hope is lost, and you want to give up, here are some of the things you should do:
Sometimes we feel like giving up on things since it is really not what we want. Before you give up on a certain goal, you need to go back and check if it is really what you wanted. Find your reasons for wishing to achieve that particular goal.
When it comes to something that we want, we are always willing to go to depths to achieve it. The same case goes with your goals, if you really wanted to achieve that goal, you would feel the urge to ensure it meets its completion. This will give you the strength to carry on and not give up at all.
2. REMEMBER HOW FAR YOU’VE COME:
Whenever you feel like you should throw in the towel, just think about where you are. Sit down for a minute and look at how much you’ve achieved and ask yourself; is it all for nothing? As soon as you realize that you have already come too far to be giving up now, then you will decide against giving up.
We tend to give up because we feel like we have used up all our energy. This is however not usually the case since there is always some more to push us further. We therefore need to constantly give ourselves strength and renewed hope after taking every single step.
This is usually a very important process while carrying out our everyday activities. A plan will always help us achieve our goals. With a plan, you will be in a position to know how far you have come in achieving your set goal. You also know how much is left to achieve your goals.
Through planning you get to divide your goal into sub goals which you try to achieve one step at a time. This will help you to celebrate every achieved sub goal as an achievement, and hence give you the strength to carry on. With a progressive plan, you will reduce the chances of giving in to the pressure of giving up.
4. APPRECIATE THE SMALL ACHIEVEMENTS:
Whenever you get to achieve something, no matter how tiny, you need to applaud yourself. On the journey to achieve your goals, you can’t afford to beat yourself up too much. Once in a while you need to pat yourself on the back for small achievements.
By appreciating the little achievements, you will feel a sense of gratitude and also feel renewed to keep pushing your goals forward.
5. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVE PEOPLE:
Positivity is contagious. Once you get to surround yourself with positive people, you inch a step closer to on time goal achievement. Positive people will most times hold you accountable for some of the goals you set. Once you plan to achieve a certain goal, they will push you towards your goal.
With positive people in your corner, you are less likely to give up on a goal that you have not achieved. They help you to see your goal to the final end.
6. TAKE BREAKS, UNWIND:
Being so much in the goal achievement process can sometime be tiresome. Once in a while, it is important to unwind. Leave the serious business for a day or two and relax for a while from the rigid goal achievement process.
Get to do something that makes you happy, something that you love, and get yourself powered up. This helps in re-energizing and fueling you to achieve your goals. With renewed strength, it is rather difficult to feel like giving up.
7. FIND YOUR INSPIRATION:
There is always something that keeps you going in life, and that is what pushes you during those difficult times. It is always important to know what pushes you forward in life. Every goal is usually inspired by something in your life. Knowing what inspires you is always important in the process of achieving your goal.
Let your inspiration be your drive to move forward. By doing that, it will be almost impossible to give up. If you do not have inspiration to move forward, go out and find something to keep you pushing!
8. DO WHATEVER SETS YOUR SOUL ON FIRE:
Well… as much as we would love to hold on to some of the goals that we have set, sometimes we need to re-evaluate ourselves. With something we love it will be almost impossible to give up. Therefore whenever you intend to do something, it is important to do something that you love and something that you will not need to go far and wide in search for inspiration.
Do something that inspiration comes from within. It needs to be something that keeps you excited and psyched up to keep pushing. By so doing, you will never get to a point of giving up.
In whatever you do, giving up should never be an option. There is always something you can do to keep you on your A- game. There could be someone looking up to you, and you could be inspiring them without your knowledge. Always keep pushing to the end..!!
