Don’t give up

By: Chinkee Tan

As I give seminars to many companies and organizations, there is one distinction that is glaring.

You can easily discern if some of the participants are interested or uninterested in your topic.

There are times when my neck veins would already pop out as I try to be more energetic to bring the audience back to life. I give my full effort.

But there are people who just seem to have lost their passion and have had their dreams stolen.

Some are not really interested – and they actually look like the series “The Walking Dead.”

They’ve waved the white flag in surrender even before the battle has ended. “Why would I still dream? Nothing will change. This is my destiny. I’ll just accept it so I won’t fail.”

I feel sorry for these people. Even if they are so full of potential, they just stop believing.

If you’ve experienced challenges and failures, no matter what happened to you in the past, never give up.

The saying, “When there is still life, there is still hope,” is very true.

You can lose everything, but never lose hope. This is the only thing that can keep you going. It will give you the strength to start over. Let it be the fire that lights up the flame of your candle.

Even if others start to give up, don’t give up with them! Many people can call it quits, but never quit on yourself.

Never accept failure as your destination. Don’t allow yourself to turn into a zombie!

Come on, FIGHT! Just keep on moving. Keep on pushing.

Believe! The day will come when you will be the one to go up that stage.

You will be the one who will be promoted. You will be the one who will be the winner. You will be the one who will be given a reward. You will be the one who will get rich!


Do you still believe in your dreams? Have you given up or are you still fighting? Never give up! No matter what happens in life.
