I don’t know what your biggest dream is or what you’re currently going through, but I know three things for sure that you can apply to all aspects of your life. I can guarantee you that someone has already told you everything I have written in this post before, but I think it’s important with a little reminder now and then. So here’s a great reminder of three things to never do in life.
1. Never Give Up
If you truly want something, there is always a way. Some days will be tough, and you will most likely feel like quitting at least once, but that doesn’t mean that you should give up. I like to think that nothing is going to change unless it hurts a little. No matter what it is – change is painful! Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that is true strength. Remember that the temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.
2. Never Lose Hope
Just because your past didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to, doesn’t mean that your future can’t be better than you ever imagined. Sometimes we feel like everything is fighting against us, we lose hope and it might be hard to see why you started your journey in the first place. I think the key to never lose hope, is to remind yourself EVERYDAY exactly “why” you want to reach you goal.
3. Never Stop Trying
You haven’t lost before you stop trying! When I was about 8 years old, I owned a pony that threw me off almost every single time I was riding it (I’m actually not exaggerating..). I had it for about two years and I was riding it almost every day – so yeah, it’s fair to say that I have tasted sand MANY, MANY times. But did I give up? Hell no! I got back into the saddle every single time, and you know what? A few years later I became one of the best equestrians in Norway. The moral of my little story is that sometimes your goals might seem unrealistic, but that shouldn’t be reason enough for you to stop trying. If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it – after a while, your goal might not seems as unrealistic as you first thought when you started out!
