Give up vs. Don’t Give up

Is anyone still encouraging this smart boy don’t give up on?!

We’re always hearing the saying, “Never give up”.

People say, “You only fail when you stop trying”.

They also say, “Practice makes perfect”.

Like my friend always likes to tell me: “Fake it until you make it”.

But what does it mean, “don’t give up on something which you can’t achieve it”?!

No doubt that a wonderful and sweet success is celebrated after a long walk and hard work or even after many failures.

No doubt that “Rome wasn’t built in a day”.

But you must learn when and on what not to give up.

No need to keep watering a tree which will not bear fruits.

No need to keep caring for a tree which can’t give shadow.

Keep trying something doesn’t mean anything when it’s resulting the same thing.

Prophet Noah preached  and called his people patiently for not less than 950 years. However when Noah recognized that the number of believers was not increasing, and the things have become saturated, then Allah Almighty revealed to Noah that no need to call them, and then He ordered Noah (PBUH) to stop calling them.

The Quran states:

It was revealed to Noah that no more of your people, other than those who already believe, will ever come to believe. So do not grieve over their deeds. (11:36-37)

When the game is over. Move on and be ready for another game.

It’s not to give up but to simply change the direction. “All Roads Lead to Rome”.

For me, the really meaning of the word “FAILURE” is NEVER GET TRIED. ”The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”. Quoted by Albert Einstein.

The most important is to try. By trying we always gain and learn something. Pierre de Coubertin quotes:

“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part”.

You have to know that stop trying something doesn’t always mean giving up, but simply to move on!

It’s quoted that, “When Allah closes a door, He opens a thousand other doors”.

So stop wasting your priceless time by knocking on the closed door. If God closed His door, Please stop knocking on it. Go knock on next door.

Move forward and start something new!

Believe me, Your life is much more bigger than a single experience!

At the end of the day, you will realize that success belongs to those who have chosen the right battles rather than being the good fighters!

Never, never, never give up!! But get to know what and when to change direction!

Stand up and be 10 times big stronger than your demons! ?

Thanks for not giving up on reading until the end??.. See you then at the next door ?!
