Never give up on life. There will always be one reason to quit, but there will be many other reasons to keep going!

At some point in our lives, we may feel like giving up. It all depends on the circumstances that sometimes get us to what we call a “breaking point.” Sometimes, we give up even before things start to happen or before making that last breakthrough to success, because we understand how much effort is needed to make this happen.

The truth is, however, we should never give up!

Giving up is one option, a definite option that says, “Okay, I’m done.” This makes sense to some people, but for others, it makes no sense at all because to say “I’m not giving up.” means I want to try another way. This is good. But don’t just take my word for it!

Here are 12 reasons why you should never give up, I hope that you find your reason before you give up in advance, and it will inspire you to move on. Maybe your reason to keep going will also inspire others as well.

1. As long as you’re alive, everything is possible

The only good reason for you to give up is your death. As long as you are alive (healthy and free), you have a choice to make attempts to succeed. So, instead of giving up because of any failures, you may have gone through, just try again. Life gives us time to do that.

2. Be realistic

It is not very likely that you succeed in something on the first try. Everything takes the time to learn, and you will make mistakes. Learn from them instead of letting them get you down. Never give up.

3. You are strong

You are stronger than you think. One little failure (as well as 10 or 100 ones) is not a serious enough reason to stop you on the way to success. Failing does not mean weakness, it just meant you have to do something in a different way or maybe try something different altogether. When you do it this way, you will see how strong you really are.

4. Express yourself

Come out and show yourself to the world, and be proud of who you are. You can and will achieve what you intend to do. You fail only when you surrender.

5. Was it done before?

If somebody else can do it, so can you. Even if only one person in the world has managed to achieve what you want, this is well within your reach. This should be reason enough for you to never give up.

6. Believe in your dreams

Do not betray yourself. There will always be a lot of people telling you that what you want to achieve is impossible. Do not let anyone ruin your dreams because you should never give up.

7. Your family and friends

Let the people closest to you become your source of inspiration and motivation to keep moving on. You may need to try to change your point of view, study and practice more, but never give up!

8. There are people worse off than you

Right now there are many people who are in a worse situation and in worse conditions than you are now. Do you want to give up your every day 5 miles jogging? Think about the people who cannot even walk and how much they would like to be able to run 5 miles… Appreciate what you have and your abilities. There will always be someone wishing for the same things you already possess.

9. Improve the world

When you achieve everything you intended to do, you can use your success to make changes in the world or in the lives of individuals. This will prove to be extremely fulfilling.

10. You deserve to be happy

You deserve happiness and success. Keep this attitude and never give up until you reach your destination.

11. Encourage others

Be a source of inspiration to others by refusing to give up. Maybe someone else can succeed because you have never surrendered, and thus inspired others not to give up. Also, always encourage people to do their best and continue in their quest for their own dreams.

12. You are so close to success

Often, when you feel like you want to give up, you are so close to making a huge breakthrough. At any point in time, you could be on the verge of success.

Do you still feel like giving up?

Remember, never give up! No matter how hard it gets, or how many people turn against you, you will always have a purpose in life. Try something new, finish a project, or just take another walk or another nap. Whatever you do, don’t close the book on your life just yet. Something great may be just around the corner.
