7 Ways to Persist When Everything in You Want to Give Up

Have you ever feel like all hope were lost and you feel helpless?

Sometime ago, I felt just like that and it seems as if my whole world is crashing down, but Nature has endowed me with innate strength to be strong and courageous in the face of my adversity. I utilized my given strength to navigate and endure between circumstances of life and I subsist. You can also do the same by using few practical methods.

Below are the 7 ways to soldier on when you feel like chicken out:

Ignore everyone else
Focus on yourself and be mindful, don’t worry about the success of others and get carried away by those who has made it before you; work towards your goals and you shall succeed.

Become your own biggest supporter
When you are getting those curve balls and life feels like rigorous test, the best things you can do is to be self-compassionate, self-motivated and be courageous to keep your head up always.

Practice gratitude
Gratitude remain the best attitude. Learn to celebrate little wins, stop looking at the things you have not and start appreciating and be thankful for all you have got.

Focus on your strengths
Focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses. Check where you are lacking and utilize your potentials in building up those part of you that seems weak and be mindful; if not now, then when?

Keep your watch away
There is one Yoruba adage that says “He who counts the crab winks will wait a lifetime by the river”. Success is a journey not a destination and yours is just few steps away because everyone has got their own time.

Stop comparing yourself to others
I implore you not to dare do it, for it can land you where you don’t like. Always accept yourself for who you are and you will always be happy in life.

Acknowledge your limitations
Through self-awareness you will know yourself better and knowing yourself includes knowing your strengths and limitations; life is a journey not a competition.
