What does it take to be successful? Many things.
You can be creative but don’t take any action.
You can be actionable but not creative at all.
You can be a visionary but fear holds you back.
You can be a creative and actionable visionary but when you stumble over your first challenge you simply quit and try something else.
Persistence is the glue that puts all the pieces together. What does it mean to be persistent and what’s the healthy balance between not giving up and letting go of something that is “not meant” to be?
Nobody can tell you what’s right or wrong for you. I guess the degree of your desire is the only indicator for you. If you really want to reach that goal (that is a dream with a set deadline), you will not give up no matter what the circumstances are.
On the other hand, if something is “meant” to happen it often will happen. Especially, if you trust in something greater than yourself. However, this doesn’t mean to give up all of your power, sit back and do absolutely nothing. Likewise, it doesn’t mean that you sit all day long, meditate and wait for a miracle. You need to move on and make things happen. Making things happen despite several setbacks and so-called failures is what persistence is all about.Never give up!
Often times when you become really sick and tired things will finally change. That’s the moment of letting go of your resistance when things shift. Keep in mind that if you don’t continue then you have automatically quit. On the other hand, if you continue then you never quit. Persistence is actually a measure of how much do you really want it. The more energy you put into your goal the faster and easier the goal comes into your reality. Energy flows where attention goes. In addition, energy is never lost. Remember that if you want to live extra-ordinary life you need to do extra-ordinary things. Your life is only a reflection of your efforts and your energy that you have invested!
Therefore, if you are losing hope now and you are about to give up, think back and appreciate yourself for what you have done so far. Take a break and breathe deeply. Then wake up and smile! It’s a new day and a new start. Remember never ever give up! Giving up is not an option for those who believe in their dreams. Only those who believe in their dreams will make it happen!
