10 Amazing Things That Will Happen When You Adopt a Never Give Up Attitude

never give up

Real success is the struggle, pain, overcoming fears and obstacles throughout life. Stories of those who have it far worse tell us that the body, both physically and mentally, can be taken to great depths. This hits home and we begin to believe amazing things can happen if you don’t give up. The reality and sad truth is we, at some point, give up because our belief systems have diminished for some reason as we embark on our journey.

How do you impulsively develop the never give up attitude? One word that personifies a never give up attitude is responsibility. I am the one responsible for creating the reality that I visualized in my thought processes. If I truly want it, then I must get up because it is now or never.

Here are 10 things that will happen when you adopt a never give up attitude:

1. Elimination of fear

Defining moments like a graduation, job, marriage, house, relationships, failures, and pain are daunting moments. Our conscious mind dwells on living up to expectations that society pushes on us. A never give up attitude can be used to quash doubts that you once had and become more confrontational with your fears as opposed to backing off. The attitude itself helps you initiate the battle that you’ve been wanting to win all your life. “Just a tiny drop of doubt can poison an entire well of faith.”  

2. Doors of creativity and an unlimited feeling

We live in a society that has deep-rooted in us with a timeline that things have to be done this way or must be achieved by this age. The problem with this way of thinking is that it creates a mindset of scarcity instead of abundance; “why isn’t anything happening.”  A never give up attitude pushes us beyond our limits to explore different methods thus opening the doors of creativity.

Creativity is like when you open the windows and the fresh breeze of air hits you. This helps you see life in a fresh new perspective, therefore the mind becomes focused on the unlimited rather than the limited. Many great minds try things that are not of the norm, which gave them this endless feeling.

3. Burning desire stays lit

“Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire, which transcends everything.” famously said by Napoleon Hill. A highlight of the current generation is that there is a lack of motivation. However, with the right push and the right mentality the burning desire can stay lit constantly. The words I always hear are “I don’t feel motivated” – the truth is if you want it bad enough you would stop at nothing. The message here is keep moving and stay busy, any little thing you do can amount to something big at the end of your journey.

4. Going where many don’t dare to go

A never give up attitude has taught me to work hard on all levels; physical health, well-being, work, sports and hobbies. This in turn gave me a greater output of results. Whenever I say “I will never give up”, I dare myself to take risks that nobody else dares to and within that process you can reap massive rewards. Whilst others are laid back and choose to do nothing, there you are with your spirited and hungry attitude to pounce on every opportunity.

“I’m always asked, ‘What’s the secret to success?’ But there are no secrets. Be humble. Be hungry. And always be the hardest worker in the room.” – Dwayne Johnson

5. You become the lion with a relentless work ethic

Think about what sets apart the top dogs within their specialties from the rest. It is in fact a mere willingness to do anything for success. Are you that type, the one that will stand their ground, ready to fight for your dream or are you the sheep just like everyone else? Never giving up allows you to develop and think of new strategies because there is always a way. Whether you must stay up all night, stay late at work, or miss your friends party, this is what the serious ones will do.

6. Improve the world

When you achieve whatever you set out to achieve, you can use your success to make a difference to the world or other people’s lives. Slowly as you achieve your goals there is the feeling of wanting more. You transfer your mindset and life skills to people who are far worse than you. Inside, you feel complete and you want to pass the never give up mentality to those who are going through what you have already embarked on your journey. Purpose and your big “why I am here” are answered.

7. Believe that anything is possible

When you refuse to give up you are more likely to source energy to jump that hurdle that you’ve been meaning to overcome. The measure of success comes downs to winning the battle between the perception of that it is impossible to achieve and the willingness to get out of your comfort zone. The only way is to never give up. Ask yourself what if I kept going rather than just give up… can the outcome be different?

8. Emotional intelligence

The capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions is key to handling if things don’t work out. Just because you never give up does not mean you will achieve 100% all the time. Right now, there are many people who are in a worse situation and environment than you are right now. It is ok to lose sometimes. You can’t win all the time but at least you can control the damage and embrace that learning is all part of the process.

“There is no separation of mind and emotions; emotions, thinking, and learning are all linked.” – Eric Jensen

9. Not quitting becomes the only option

My teacher always used to say to us as students “prepare for failure”. He said in life you must always be ready and be prepared for anything. If you remain in a state of always being alert to danger, chances are you will avoid making mistakes. The more you stay hungry or have this feeling that you have something to lose, the harder you fight for your dreams. On the contrary, if you give up at the first sign of struggle, then you are not ready to be successful.

10. You grow stronger

I must do this for me and keep going to become better as a whole. In doing so, you learn so much about yourself by evoking personal reflection. When the physical state and mental state are pushed in positive ways they become synchronized like a harmonious melody. Following this, the gates of the soul open to true growth and freedom.

Even when the body has suffered, the blood, sweat and tears have worn you down, the mind still lives and that never dies. Therein is the epitome of the human mind; a mind so great and mysterious that it is able to achieve anything. It can endure unknown situations which give you that drowning and suffocating feeling.

Whether you’re reading this at 2am in the morning or in the evening, the never give up mentality is being awakened, telling you to carry on. The complexity of life both the economic and social hardships in which we currently live in makes it easy to get carried away by the feeling of defeat. Like they say, you can get back up so never ever succumb to defeat because in this world you are not allowed to give up. Take a deep breath and don’t you dare give up.

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.

Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Podcast, Youtube Channel or Online Show

why you should have a podcast

Confidence comes from a place of strong understanding of self. After close to three years on radio, I’ve grown from a shy introvert to a shy introvert with an extrovert persona. When the mic is turned on, I can channel a version of myself that some say is attractive, strong, and of course, confident but it wasn’t always this way.

What I want to share with you is what I discovered on this journey into broadcast that you can apply to your life, your ventures, and your personal development. This doesn’t require any fancy gear. It does require a leap of faith on your part because once you go down the road of media; it can change your life.

1. Perceived Expertise

When you go to a doctor, you expect their knowledge will guide them to a solution to your problems. When you have a show, you become your listeners’ doctor. For all the multiple thousands, maybe millions, of YouTube channels, podcasts, and user-created content in the world, each person that gets behind a mic takes a position on their passion, their opinions, and their themes.

They challenge the status quo for the benefit of their listeners in hopes to entertain and educate. With consistency on your side, those fans place you on a platform and give you permission to influence them.

2. Global Acknowledgement

One of the benefits to increasing confidence is when you receive thank you notes from people you may never meet. The feeling of enriching someone’s life from halfway around the globe, provides validation you’re enhancing someone else’s life with your wisdom and your wit.

The very first time I was told I was making a difference in someone’s life in a country other than my own, I felt like I caused massive impact that transcends my circle of influence. When you experience just how much you can cause impact and it comes back to you, it’ll change your worldview.

“Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Backed By Numbers

One of the most exciting ways to measure success is to quantify your growth. It’s not enough to just broadcast. Having subscribers and downloads helps to know, numerically, how well you’re doing. Word of caution. This can be a way to set yourself up for distress because of number envy but if you understand what the numbers mean; you can control the narrative of the numbers.

The major number that makes most people smile is 10,000. I’d advise it to be 1. Here’s why. As you grow in your industry, so does your reach. If you learned that the one person that subscribed totally changed for the better because of you, wouldn’t that be worth the effort?

4. Effective Communication

While it’s not talked about much, having a show is documentation. You create a dynamic account of your life, your industry, and the pulse on what’s important simply by having a show. When you find a channel to improve your communication skills, you demand attention and people will listen to you. You become more trusted as a leader and people will follow you once they believe you can lead them to their wants and needs.

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

These insights have helped many people become leaders and, ultimately, move others to their best selves. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about showing up and showing out.
