13 Reasons Why You Can’t Just Give Up

13 Reasons Why You Can’t Just Give Up

Have you thought of giving up? If it was as easy as you thought, then everyone should be doing it. You can’t give up yet, I bet you will change your mind after learning this tips.

You can’t give up because you think it is not easy

Because it’s difficult, is not enough reason to give up. You won’t know what you can achieve if you have predetermined failure. It’s easier going down the mountain than climbing up, but the view at the top is more beautiful than when you are at the mountain foot. If the destination is beautiful, don’t worry about the journey.

You can’t give up what you love

If ever you give up, then you never really fell in love with what you did. The best form of a fulfilled life is dying for what you love and believe in.

You can’t give up because no one believes what you do

it’s true anyone can give up. It is indeed one of the most easiest thing there is to do. You can’t give up because, no one believes in what you do. The person who should have the utmost believe in what you do, is yourself. If you haven’t done anything that people say you are crazy, you are yet to do something amazing.

Every new idea to the world is always impossible but this is the truth “impossible is something nobody have done until someone does it and  “that person might be you”. Isn’t it amazing today how everyone uses their phone or electronic gadgets to send and receive information?

Do you know “the first man who thought of sending a message without concrete objects like paper and pen was bounded and taken to a psychiatric home ?” His friends thought he was crazy and he needed medical attention but he was perfectly OK. He was just in the realm of “infinite intelligence”.

You can’t give up because no one believes in you.

The greatest person on earth is you. It doesn’t matter where you come from or where you have been. The person to win the greatest prizes is you. The person to do the greatest works is you.  The person to go the highest places is you.

Being yourself in a world, that is trying endlessly to make everyone into what it chooses, is the greatest strength. Believing in yourself is more than the whole world believing in you. Keep this in mind that, “nature sets a natural test for everyone, who wishes to be great and only few pas this test”.

You must be wondering what this test could be! (Self-doubt and critics from those around you). If you can overcome this, the world is yours. It might be only one person who believes in you, it is ok if that person is you.

You can’t give up because things are going wrong

Whatever happens to you only breaks the old you and build the new you. It’s your choice to stay down when things go wrong and never allow what happens to you, keep you down. See every situation as a chance to become what you have always intended to be, don’t let it get you bitter but better.

Humans fall and what matters is if they rise after falling. Falling on its own isn’t wrong, but refusing to rise up after falling is.Humans fall and rise and what matters is how you rose.

Falling isn’t on its own bad, but how you rise is what matters. Don’t rise and remain the same person, but rise up a different and better person.

You can’t give up because you fear failure

The fear of failure shouldn’t get you down rather, let the joy of success inspire you. The world at anytime never celebrate failures but achievements. A man who never failed once definitely never tried anything new yet.

The world will never celebrate your failures but your success. Nature sets it, that the world soon forget your million mistakes but remembers only your achievements. what makes great men is this ; “They do what no one else have done”.

You can’t give up because you don’t have power

You may have intended doing something and just realized you need power or authority before things can be done. You have said to yourself that the voices of the weak are never heard. Well, this is just a lie, the liar in you is saying to you. “power doesn’t give you great things but great things gives you power”.

Power doesn’t mean being in control, but it means pointing the way. There are many unsung heroes, history may not remember them but they bled and died that we might be free.

America is built on a solid foundation, (The blood and bones of our unsung heroes). If you must have power, the quest for it doesn’t make you have it but the quest for great works gives you power.

You can’t give up because your desires are not met

You can’t give up on your desires. Desires cause people to drown and you know what desires these are, ‘wrong desire of material and power’. True desire, is desire for great works and never let this wrong desire bring you down.

Advertising

You can’t give up because someone gave you a prophecy about a bad destiny

Often, you hear people say it won’t just work for me and someone told me I wasn’t meant for this. Destiny is never something that actually happens to you as you are told ; destiny is what you make out by overcoming all difficulties and moving forward.

If you ever lost the power of moving forward, then you are doomed and that’s your destiny. We shape our destiny, our destiny doesn’t shape us.

You can’t give up because you loss

Winners are losers who never gave up. The more material things you lose, the more less of material things you have and the less material things you have the more desire to win.

Losing is not an excuse for giving up. You must lose something to gain something in return, either in material things or in your effort. If you are not willing to lose something then you will lose everything.

This you must know, there is nothing like “something for nothing”. Every great achievement comes with a price and if you are not ready to pay this price, your chances of winning are slim.

You can’t give up because it is taking too long

Have you ever wondered why the darkest hour of the night is a signal that dawn is approaching? That very time you want to give up, is when you are close to the end. This is a test set by nature to prove those who are determined.

Advertising

When this liar inside you speaks out that you can’t just do this anymore, reply and say ‘I HAVE COME TOO FAR TO GO BACK’. You can always quit so why quit now?

You can’t give up because there is a possibility you will fail

Did anyone ever say you won’t fail? Well let me tell you this now, you will fail a thousand times, until you know to how to do it right. Did anyone ever say you won’t win? Here this again that you will win, once you do it right.

There is possibility of losing or winning and it’s your choice whichever happens. If you believe in the possibilities of winning then you will win. You don’t fall because you failed, you fail because you fall and there is a possibility of rising up again. just one success is worth a million falling.

You can’t give up because things seem unclear

Some situations put us on mental test. Most times when things are clumsy or not clear, you shouldn’t hate them. These are times you should make good use of your mental power and never to give up.

Just never give up!

8 Ways to Train Your Brain to Learn Faster and Remember More

8 Ways to Train Your Brain to Learn Faster and Remember More

You go to the gym to train your muscles. You run outside or go for hikes to train your endurance. Or, maybe you do neither of those, but still wish you exercised more.

Well, here is how to train one of the most important parts of your body: your brain.

When you train your brain, you will:

  • Avoid embarrassing situations. You remember his face, but what was his name?
  • Be a faster learner in all sorts of different skills. No problem for you to pick up a new language or new management skill.
  • Avoid diseases that hit as you get older. Alzheimer’s will not be affecting you.

So how to train your brain and improve your cognitive skills?

1. Work your memory

Twyla Tharp, a NYC-based renowned choreographer has come up with the following memory workout:

When she watches one of her performances, she tries to remember the first twelve to fourteen corrections she wants to discuss with her cast without writing them down.

If you think this is anything less than a feat, then think again. In her book The Creative Habit she says that most people cannot remember more than three.

The practice of both remembering events or things and then discussing them with others has actually been supported by brain fitness studies.

Memory activities that engage all levels of brain operation—receiving, remembering and thinking—help to improve the function of the brain.

Now, you may not have dancers to correct, but you may be required to give feedback on a presentation, or your friends may ask you what interesting things you saw at the museum. These are great opportunities to practically train your brain by flexing your memory muscles.

What is the simplest way to help yourself remember what you see? Repetition.

For example, say you just met someone new:

“Hi, my name is George”

Don’t just respond with, “Nice to meet you”. Instead, say, “Nice to meet you George.”

Got it? Good.

2. Do something different repeatedly

By actually doing something new over and over again, your brain wires new pathways that help you do this new thing better and faster.

Think back to when you were three years old. You surely were strong enough to hold a knife and a fork just fine. Yet, when you were eating all by yourself, you were creating a mess.

It was not a matter of strength, you see. It was a matter of cultivating more and better neural pathways that would help you eat by yourself just like an adult does.

And guess what? With enough repetition you made that happen!

But how does this apply to your life right now?

Say you are a procrastinator. The more you don’t procrastinate, the more you teach your brain not to wait for the last minute to make things happen.

Now, you might be thinking “Duh, if only not procrastinating could be that easy!”

Well, it can be. By doing something really small, that you wouldn’t normally do, but is in the direction of getting that task done, you will start creating those new precious neural pathways.

So if you have been postponing organizing your desk, just take one paper and put in its right place. Or, you can go even smaller. Look at one piece of paper and decide where to put it: Trash? Right cabinet? Another room? Give it to someone?

You don’t actually need to clean up that paper; you only need to decide what you need to do with it.

That’s how small you can start. And yet, those neural pathways are still being built. Gradually, you will transform yourself from a procrastinator to an in-the-moment action taker.

3. Learn something new

It might sound obvious, but the more you use your brain, the better its going to perform for you.

Advertising

For example, learning a new instrument improves your skill of translating something you see (sheet music) to something you actually do (playing the instrument).

Learning a new language exposes your brain to a different way of thinking, a different way of expressing yourself.

You can even literally take it a step further, and learn how to dance. Studies indicate that learning to dance helps seniors avoid Alzheimer’s. Not bad, huh?

4. Follow a brain training program

The Internet world can help you improve your brain function while lazily sitting on your couch. A clinically proven program like BrainHQ can help you improve your memory, or think faster, by just following their brain training exercises.

5. Work your body

You knew this one was coming didn’t you? Yes indeed, exercise does not just work your body; it also improves the fitness of your brain.

Even briefly exercising for 20 minutes facilitates information processing and memory functions. But it’s not just that–exercise actually helps your brain create those new neural connections faster. You will learn faster, your alertness level will increase, and you get all that by moving your body.

Now, if you are not already a regular exerciser, and already feel guilty that you are not helping your brain by exercising more, try a brain training exercise program like Exercise Bliss.

Remember, just like we discussed in #2, by training your brain to do something new repeatedly, you are actually changing yourself permanently.

6. Spend time with your loved ones

If you want optimal cognitive abilities, then you’ve got to have meaningful relationships in your life.  Talking with others and engaging with your loved ones helps you think more clearly, and it can also lift your mood.

If you are an extrovert, this holds even more weight for you. At a class at Stanford University, I learned that extroverts actually use talking to other people as a way to understand and process their own thoughts.

I remember that the teacher told us that after a personality test said she was an extrovert, she was surprised. She had always thought of herself as an introvert. But then, she realized how much talking to others helped her frame her own thoughts, so she accepted her new-found status as an extrovert.

7. Avoid crossword puzzles

Many of us, when we think of brain fitness, think of crossword puzzles. And it’s true–crossword puzzles do improve our fluency, yet studies show they are not enough by themselves.

Are they fun? Yes. Do they sharpen your brain? Not really.

Of course, if you are doing this for fun, then by all means go ahead. If you are doing it for brain fitness, then you might want to choose another activity

8. Eat right – and make sure dark chocolate is included

Foods like fish, fruits, and vegetables help your brain perform optimally. Yet, you might not know that dark chocolate gives your brain a good boost as well.

When you eat chocolate, your brain produces dopamine. And dopamine helps you learn faster and remember better. Not to mention, chocolate contains flavonols, antioxidants, which also improve your brain functions.

So next time you have something difficult to do, make sure you grab a bite or two of dark chocolate!

The bottom line

Now that you know how to train your brain, it’s actually time to start doing.

Don’t just consume this content and then go on with your life as if nothing has changed. Put this knowledge into action and become smarter than ever!
