If not giving up was always the right answer life would be so easy. History shows us that sometimes quitters prosper and sometimes they miss out. Knowing when to quit and when to keep going is one of the most difficult questions and so we asked folks we admire to tell us how they think through this question.

Throughout 2020, I battled a lot of different life changing events. One resulting in the most difficult thing I had ever faced. As tough as this season of my life was, looking back on it, it led me to the most amazing and fruitful season of my life thus far. I used to hate when people told me “Everything Happens for a Reason.” I thought it was corny, and just something that people say to fill the void. However, when you personally go through that saying, it all completely unravels and makes perfect sense. Looking back on that, it is my motive to strive to be the best version of myself, and when things get hard, I know not to ever want to give up again, because it may lead to something incredibly amazing!

Since I believe I’m deserving of this, I’ve put my mind and soul working so hard to get to where I want to be in life, to attract the positive outcomes. it’s like speaking your manifestations into existence. You’ll get everything you deserve within due time and even though there are moments that makes it feel like none of this shit is worth it, if you continue to believe in yourself here comes the positive manifestations you attracted picking you right back up.

I believe that God strategically places in my heart when to give up (stop) something or keep going. I have to press in to hear His voice. Sometimes there have been bumps, curves, or even sharp turns and I had to listen to whether to slow down, keep going, or to even pursue. I have learned that when I hear a ‘word’ from God, all I have to do is obey and leave the rest to Him. Read more>>
