Don’t Give Up


“One of the hardest decisions you’ll ever face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder.”

In business and in relationships, knowing how and when to apply ‘long-suffering’ is tricky. Giving up and moving on may very well result in an opportunity to get things done faster, healthier, more stress-free. But dealing with challenges, making the most of a daunting situation, grows your heart, your character and your spirit.

The best movies, the ones that tug on your heart strings, are the ones in which people hold on and press forward even in the most daunting situations. That’s why sports movies are so popular. Rudy is a testament to endurance. And who didnt succumb to the guilty pleasure of singing off-key to Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On,’ as they pictured Jack holding on until the end for RosĂ©.

The greatest love story I’ve seen in sometime was a 22 photojournal story on Pinterest chronicling a couple’s relationship after the husband lost his limbs while serving as a Marine overseas. The most poignant image was of his wife carrying him on her back up the stairs. They didn’t give up.

Don’t give up. Not on your family, your purpose or yourself. Ever.
