The answer to this question that why people give up will be found in this blog post. But before telling you the answer I want to show you an example so that you can understand the answer better.
I love reading books, especially books that have real life practical wisdom, in simple terms Non-fiction books. I have read a few books like The Sedona Method, Think And Grow Rich, The Richest Man In Babylon, The Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem, Mastery, Radical Honesty and many other books. But for every book finished I have 10 more books that I started but did not finish.
The reason why I did not, or more honesty, could not finish was because I gave up. I gave up persisting. And that’s why I did not finish them. There were many “reasons” like negative emotions, stress, underestimation of the efforts, procrastination and a lack of self-awareness.
Most of the books that I bought are really good books and even bestselling books. But they are not something I could make myself complete in the past.
Although I am still figuring it out, I realized that self-awareness is very important for success. This is because the negative emotions can be released if you are self-aware enough.
Also persistence is what makes success possible. There’s a book that I am currently reading and I am at page 196. The book is called “Psychocybernetics”. That book is amazing. But I could not finish it 2 years ago and it was only this month that I started reading. It shows that even if we give up, life offers a second chance and we have a choice to persist or settle for less.
I am writing these blogs because it gives me happiness to document my journey to success of Rs.22500,00,00,000 ruppees in sales in the next 5 years. I don’t know if it’s possible. But it’s my potential and I must aim for my potential. I don’t have a plan. I don’t have the money. I don’t have connections. But I must do it. It’s my duty.
To sum up I think people give up because they are not self-aware enough to persist. I know it’s not simple. You may be thinking what is “self-aware enough to persist” but please bear with me. If you keep following this blog you will understand soon.
In case you are new to this blog, I am Anirban from India. I have an ecommerce business and I have big goals. I am in college and I have friends. I am just like you. But I am not willing to settle for what everyone else are satisfied with.
Thanks for stopping by and reading this blog post. I wish you have a great Christmas eve on 25th December. This year has been a very educational ride without so many adventures. Thanks again. Take care!
