Don't ever give up.
Believe in yourself or no one else will.
My personal saying is: I'd rather die knowing that I tried to do what I love.
Adrienne Bailon. B.1983
As children we all had dreams of being someone reputable, for example a doctor, musician, lawyer, athlete, author and so on.
Through our teenage years we make plans to accomplish our aspirations by educating ourselves and creating a pathway.
As adults we start to learn about real life, the joys of bills, needing to work to have enough income to pay to do and have nice things, keep a roof over our heads, and then sometimes "stuff" or circumstance get in the way and that same path we carefully planned during our teenage years, starts to go in a direction you never envisioned.
So many people give up on their dreams and deep within their soul this eats away at them. Some will never admit this to themselves, let alone others.
Sometimes confidence is a key factor as to why people don't pursue what they love, I often hear people say and have even said myself:
"I am not good enough"
"I am too old now"
"I don't have the energy"
"It's too late"
It is not "too late" and if you believe in the "man upstairs" then you should believe he holds all your cards and your faith should keep you striving!
I am a firm believer in the notion "the work you put in, you will eventually be rewarded for" in other words, the universe will return all your good deeds and efforts to help you achieve your aspirations. It's good to think positive too, even though at times it is easier said than done!
However it doesn't help when you are on social media and see people with no real talent, being offered the jobs you worked so tirelessly for. I say, ignore those people and still go for your dreams! WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOOSE? If all else fails, at least you can say YOU TRIED and "TRYING" DOESN'T ACTUALLY MEAN FAILING!
What does "Give Up" actually mean? Cease making an effort; admit defeat.
Watch the video below of actors who all achieved their dreams late in life! Be inspired and don't give up!
I believe in you :)
I would love to hear your thoughts on this subject.
