“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill…

…Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.”

Remember this quote stuck on your hostel room’s wall?

Yes! Have you emulated it in your life? No!

The mantra for life should be: Quit bad, Never Quit Good! Watch that life would be so much worth living. Have a winning mindset.

 “Winners never quit, and quitters never win.” ―Vince Lombardi.

Quitting is not an option always. Quit if you need to, don’t quit if you can bounce back. The option is with you. It is your mindset that puts you in rebound mode. You only must aspire for it and work around it.

Assess the situation if you got fired from your job recently. Or recently break up with your loved one? It is difficult to stay motivated when you have faced a major setback. Forget motivation, you do not even consider surviving. Life looks pale and unbearable. You become a loner; everything looks worthless. If you succumb to such a situation, you become a loser, if you move on, you may bounce back and may emerge a winner.

That is when a “never give up” attitude may inspire and invigorate you. Here a little bit of willpower and optimism can go a long way. The challenges you face are never meant for you to quit. You will not always find great things on your plate. You need to earn them with your persistence. Even if it becomes very difficult to hold on, fight till your last breath – as the road to success is never easy. Hence, what works best is a “Never Quit” attitude.

It is the attitude to never give up. Not everyone born on Earth is successful. Success comes to those who pursue their goal with persistence, purpose, and dedication. They are the ones who can convert their dreams to reality. They never give up on their dreams, no matter what the odds are.

Why not give up?

We learn a lot when we keep going and decide not to give up. We can learn that there are hidden strengths and potentials within us. We learn how to keep ourselves motivated. More importantly, we decide not to give up, and we learn how we can effectively convert our failures into success.

What is never giving up?

The phrase “never give up” is an expression of encouragement, suggesting that no matter what obstacles life presents, one should remain determined and continue to try to achieve their goals. It is a way of saying that one should keep going no matter how hard it may be.

“If you have a dream, don’t just sit there. Gather courage to believe that you can succeed and leave no stone unturned to make it a reality.” –  Roopleen

Let us look at the quote by Kahlil Gibran when he says “Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”

Your attitude when things go wrong is ultimately more important than the event itself and is what will determine if the outcome will be positive or negative. If you have been defeated by a negative attitude towards setbacks, do not lose hope. Admitting your mistakes is the first step to correcting them. A positive attitude can be learned and developed. It is a matter of choice. You can make the choice, whenever faced with a difficulty to look at it from an optimistic point of view rather than a pessimistic one.

“Never give up hope. All things are working for your good. One day, you’ll look back on everything you’ve been through and thank God for it.” – Germany Kent

As we say your attitude determines the fate of your situation, sometimes it so happens that despite your best efforts things never work out as you planned. Are you in despair because just when it seems you are making progress something goes wrong? At such times it is easy to feel defeated and to give up, but what can you do to stay on top of things?

It is a fact of life that despite all your best efforts at planning, strategizing, and being careful not to make mistakes some things will go wrong sometimes.

This makes the poem, “Don’t Quit,” which makes statement more eloquently by saying:

“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill…
…Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.”

It is often said that “every adversity has within it the seeds of an equivalent or greater benefit.” Whenever you are faced with a setback ask yourself what you could do to turn it around. Better still, ask yourself how you can benefit from the setback. You can turn this setback into an opportunity with your perseverance and dedication.

Certainly, life puts you to the test which looks unsurmountable sometimes, but you can conquer it with your “Don’t Quit” attitude.
