Before you give up... READ THIS!!

93 replies


Sometime, you won't know how close is you to success... especially when you work very hard, see no result and think to give up at last...

The reason why I love this picture the most is to remind everyone of us NOT TO GIVE UP if you really have passion on the thing you are doing right now.. Believe in yourself.. If want it bad enough you will push through and come out the other side a better person as long as you don't give up.

You will realise you will never know when you have close to success

    I would use a similar quote when I would present a research study I did on dropout prevention. The quote was from Thomas Edison, “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

    Thats cool a picture for sharing, its a lot like the "acres of diamonds" story or how Tony Robbins always says that 90% of people stop when they are only inches from success, (which is a statistic like many in personal development which probably has little basis in fact, but sounds pretty good)

    Really great point! In fact, most people wants to gain success but they use to give up if they experienced the worst case scenario. Without knowing that it happen for a reason for them learn more things. Set your mind to welcome mistakes and make a permission to learn from it. Giving up for me is another call for failure.

    Awesome Picture! I have seen it before. The message is very powerful, If you have worked so hard up to this point to achieve success, why not keep going? This is why making sure you finish what you set out to accomplish no matter what is a good habit to develop.

    The one thing I always keep in mind though is making sure you work smart and not just hard. Making sure you are heading in the right direction is essential because otherwise it will be a waste of time after all.

I do not seem to know what markting strategy to use. I don't think I will give up but I do surely feel like that guy on that picture and can therefore understand him.

      Reminds me of a story that I read "Three feet from Gold" about a guy who was digging for gold and eventually tired and gave up, only to realize later that he was a mere 3 feet from the gold vein.

      It's a *great* image to have as desktop background!

      I think a key message behind this, particularly in the IM field, is to pick one plan that you know is working for others, and then make sure you aren't the one at the bottom of the picture!

      Keep at it.
      Work it.
      Figure out what it is that the success stories are doing that you are not, and then change.
      Don't hop to another plan, because the same will happen!

      Probably the one thing they are doing though, is sticking to one plan and working at it!

      Nice share!

  • Well, it can really be hard to think that you're only inches away from success when you're feeling frustrated. I've been there.

    I think the key thing I learned was to just work and do a lot of it. When I work, I don't think of the results and by golly... the money comes.

    When I don't work and just keep looking at my stats or rankings in Google, I get frustrated and angry if I don't see results even though it's only been a week.

    You have to somehow find a way to enjoy working hard and focusing on your business. You have to see that this online thing is an art; a skill that has to be learned.

    When you think like this, you won't really feel too bad about the results not coming yet because you know you will get it soon.

    Things will just click for you. Self-discipline, motivation (a.k.a inspiration in my vocabulary), and focus are key elements to make a lot of money online.

    Just speaking from experience.

    Thanks for the image Hazyl!

    I just wanted to add a thought: It depends! In the OP image we can see the diamonds, so everybody thinks: "I want to be the first guy" - he is almost there...The problem is, we take this image and apply it to our present situation - where we cannot see the diamonds! Many of us say that we can "almost smell it", but...

    ...if digging in this direction leads nowhere, than all that work/time/energy will be wasted!



    This is not to take away anybodies motivation! I still like the image in the OP. Just to make you think. It is not a matter of giving up IM altogether. Once in a while you should just step back, see why something is not working - as expected by you and to attack the problem from a different perspective or to change your expectations

    I wish you all the success that you deserve. As human beings you are ALL winners, you won a race against millions of others and BINGO, are here on this interesting journey called Life

    This picture is a very motivational picture as it shows reality. We humans sometimes give up when we are faced with adversities. Lesson leant is we might be very close to the end goal.

    As a Business Coach I was fortunate to work with 1500 plus business owners globally in my corporate job. Through my observation I found that most people give up when the end is very close. Mostly the reason is fear of failure. One tip I would like to offer always have daily goals, be self accountable and if you follow-up your daily list you will succeed.

    Thanks for sharing. My personal experience says that "Failure is not an option" If you believe in this it will self motivate you towards higher lengths.

    Good luck everyone and believe in yourself as you can "Do It"

    If any of you are been thinking of giving up just message me and I will be happy to motivate you towards success.

    Well wishes

    Hi Hazyl

    The picture really sums it up Thank you for sharing.

    What I have noticed when consulting businesses and getting to know their stories of why they are struggling and usually feel like the only solution is to give up, is that those businesses never created a strategy.

    In contrast, businesses that took the time to write a thorough business plan are much less likely to face that emotion (of giving up). Instead at times of facing challenges, they refer back to their original business plan.

    Yes the picture is motivating, and one should not give up so easily, however as we go along any path, we need to be aware and evaluate the results we are getting and determine if it is the right path.

    If you find you are on the wrong path, then giving up is the right thing to do. However you cannot give up trying. But you need to start a new path based on the things you learned from the previous experience.

    Just be careful, starting a new path every time you reach an obstacle gets you nowhere, insisting on continuing the wrong path gets you where you don't want to be.

    The trick is having the wisdom to determine if you are on the right path or the wrong one.
