Giving up makes no sense! You may ask yourself why do you say that? You may even say "You have no idea how hard my life is" Well you would be very correct. But what you're missing is the fact that giving up is illogical.
If you're attempting to lose a few extra pounds your regimen would have to contain a healthy diet and exercise everyday. Well exercising is no joke! It can be especially difficult if you've never been physically active for an extended length of time or never at all. What if that person decided enough was enough and that they're not seeing the progress they intended? What if they decided to quit and go back to their unhealthy lifestyle? What would your advice be to that person trying to better their health and overall self esteem but can't seem to get over that initial hump?
I'd take a guess and say you'd tell them "You're only at the beginning! You can't expect change right away! You're on the right track but you've got to stick it out! you're not alone!" This advice can be used for so many trials we experience in life. Whether it's starting a business, losing weight, battling depression, trying to make ends meet, or just trying to make it through school. Giving up makes no sense!
Giving up is illogical because you've put in all this effort to not have what you've worked for! That's like paying for something and leaving it at the store! I don't know about you, but I want what I've paid for. Why start if you're not going to finish? In addition, victory is so sweet you don't want to miss out on that, do you? Life is hard we all know that, but what makes life so interesting is seeing the unlikely, the underdog, winning the gold medal. Don't you want that to be you? It can't be if you give up! If the question is "I don't know if I can" the mere fact you thought you could for a second shows you have it in you! The audacity of you to succeed, you've got this. Shake off the doubt, shake off the guilt of quitting, shake off the haters saying that you can't; and show them! Show them with your success. Victory is sweet for the one who worked hard for it, never give up, keep going and claim what you've paid for!
