Never Give Up

Why I Do Not Give Up and Helpful Quotes For You.

never give up quotes

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."

-Thomas Edison.

I do love a good motivational quote.

Sometimes we stumble upon 'never give up quotes' and we cherish them so much in that moment. We even tend to save them so we can bring them back up again as often as we need to hear positive, encouraging words.

Well, this page is going to be my archive of all positive thoughts and vibes.

Here are some wonderful 'never give up quotes' that keep me going. I will be referring to this page as often as I need to have some inspiration and a gentle push to keep going. Feel free to bookmark this page and come back as often as you need to.

I hope that this will be a refreshing read for people no matter the background. I mean, there are times we feel like giving up, no matter who we are. There are moments  in our lives where we just can't be bothered to do whatever we are doing, even when we know it's got to be done. It may be a small task or even a big long-term project.

When we feel like giving up, it doesn't mean that there is something wrong with us or that we don't aspire. The feeling catches the best of us, because its a normal human feeling.

But it is better to overcome that feeling, or it could hinder our growth and success. Big Time. So anyways I thought I would share my thoughts on not giving up and quotes that everyone should keep in mind.

Doubt Kills More Dreams than Failure Ever Will.

Sometimes we give up, because we just don't know. We have no idea. Don't be doubtful.

Is it really easier to Give Up?

Many think that giving up is the easiest option. But the moment you give up can only really lead to a downwards spiral.

Why? Giving up means leaving all your hard work behind. Completely abandoning everything that you once stood up for. This ain't easy.

So matter how difficult circumstances get, I like to stop and think. Think beyond the present hardship and on to the solution. Because often, what we need to keep fighting is just round the corner...

Giving Up - The Quick Response

Many times, giving up is the action people take in THE moment of crisis. They may be tired, overwhelmed, or just plain frustrated. And that is where the negative thoughts start to build up.

'I can not do this anymore.'

'I am going nowhere.'

'What is the point'. And then it ends.

They give up, because they feel terrible in that instant and cannot possibly see future improvement.

And that is why not giving up takes a strong mental push. You have to see hope when all looks hopeless and at times you have to take a leap of faith.

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.

Frustration can really blind your perception. It is dangerous, like driving when your windscreen is covered with snow. To avoid giving up, you have to take a deep breath in, and tell yourself not to make any big decisions for that moment.

Take a break for a moment, and allow the surge of anger and annoyance to pass away.

Don't Erase the Highlights

A successful person is able to look back on past endeavours and improve. But if you give up, you have little to look back on for inspiration.

Even if you fair badly, you can always look back and improve- only if you do not give up.

The journey only ends when you do.

And what else?

Dreams don't work unless you do.

Sometimes, we are so close to success, but then we give up and never get to see where perseverance could have taken us. That's why I really like the opening quote by Thomas Edison which shows how vital it is to keep going.

After all you never know what is around the corner.

If Plan A didn't work, the alphabet has 25 more letters! Stay Cool.

This quote is quite funny but extremely true. Sometimes we only see one way of achieving our goals. We have to do it precisely as we've planned it out it our head, and if we can't, that is it. Otherwise we seem to feel that we  are all out of options.

But often, if we think carefully about the situation, there are other practical ways to solve our problems. We don't need to give up at plan A.

If at first you don't succeed....

Try and Try Again.

If A doesn't quite work out, there's always B and there is no embarrassment in trying out C too.

The number 1 reason people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have gotten.

Sometimes we tend to be too absorbed in the the journey ahead, or the length of the journey. Then we start to get worried about not meeting our target and then we back away...which really takes us nowhere.

When this happens we need to put on our blinders - cut out all distractions- and stay focused. If you are going to be pondering on anything, ponder on how far you've come. This alone should help you have faith in yourself that you can achieve.

You've done it once. You can do it again.

Our bodies are capable of anything, it's our minds we have to convince.

This a particularly good quote to keep in mind, when we are doing sports our trying to reach a fitness goal.

Most times, negative thinking is our only barrier. If we convince ourselves that we can't do it, we have failed before we even try.

And it goes, with a lot of other things in life. It's all about how we think. It may sound extremely cliche but if you believe you WILL achieve.

Now I'm not saying this will happen instantly, because most times it won't. But eventually you will enjoy the rewards of your hard work.

Some Statistics to help if you think you can't do it anymore...

Examples of Not Giving Up

How long did it take to make twitter?

The creator says it took “timing, perseverance, & eight years.”

How long for Amazon to be really successful?

It launched in 1994 but only incorporated book reviews in 1996, CD’s came in 1998. And they weren’t profitable in the first seven years.


Many people said it won’t work & that they should “kill the project.” Well, they didn’t & years later look where they are now.

The Beatles?

Must have heard of them?

The band played in small clubs for YEARS before an exciting appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

It takes time, patience and a positive attitude, so just because you aren't seeing results now does not mean they aren't coming.

Define success as doing your best. Face the Fear. Make the valiant effort. Don't worry so much about the end result.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is my favourite 'never give up quote' as of now. Yes, the reward is thrilling and inspiring, but it's more about putting on the valiant effort and letting what will happen to happen.

The best way to not give up is to busy yourself with productive efforts and doing what you love. Face your fear. Bite the Bullet and do what you know you have to do. If you don't know, then research. Equip yourself and make yourself stronger.

Doing your best today is the best preparation for tomorrow.

Do not become preoccupied with the end result. Or the initial pain and effort. Remember, the beginning is often hardest.

The Harder the Struggle, the more glorious the triumph.

I hope you enjoy reading this page and give a thumbs up if you did.
