That´s like my very voice within. Never Never Give Up!
I just read the old post from my favourite ¨slap-me-on-my-face-motivational-site¨ Chris Guillebeau´s ¨The Art of Non Conformity,¨ with the title called ¨Ever Feel Like Giving Up?¨ To that question, I really wanna scream one thing and one thing only : YEAAAHH!!!!
There were certain times in my life when I feel like I just wanna cry and do nothing else but keep crying. Just try to release my emotional feelings at that moment, and wish for all bad moods and sentiments will be gone away. And after that I would see my stupid face on the mirror, tired of all the efforts I´ve made on crying, yet satisfied afterwards. At least I think, I´m satisfied. But apparently solving problems by let it just go like that (by crying) and then try to remember that tomorrow is a brand new day is not always good (my personal opinion). I recently started to believe that I dont like setting myself to just let some things off from my radar and pretend like ¨Oh c´mon there would be next time, next day, next stop, chill!¨
I learn to say these words to myself over and over again: ¨Remember, learning how to solve problem is taking yourself one step closer to what we call ´maturity.´ Do you wanna be that better human being with better personality? Or you just wanna get older by age not by its maturity in life?¨
Regarding to my weakness on tackling-solving problems immediately, Guillebeau´s article reminds me of one word that answer all of those worries of mine. Perseverance.
I will wholefully copy-paste things about ¨perseverance¨ from this website. Feel free to see directly from the source site or here. It is very meaningful for me and hopefully would always remind us all about how important it is to have commitment and being hard to ourselves (for spesific reason).
Before we jump on the copy-paste article, I wanna put Dale Carnegie´s quote here that suddenly remind me of one person and his inspiring biography by Walter Isaacson:
¨Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all.¨
