Never Give Up Quotes

Here are some never give up quotes to help remind you that in order to get what you want in life, you often have to go beyond what you thought you were capable of. That’s how we grow. Achieving goals isn’t just about getting what you’re going after. It’s also about forcing yourself to become better, wiser, and stronger so that you can take on even bigger goals.

Most people don’t experience the life of their dreams simply because they quit way too easily. Not giving up on your dreams also means to be smart however. You can try all you want but if you’re taking the wrong set of actions, you’re not going to get very far.

Life is going to find way to test you. At times, you may feel that life is unfair. The urge to quit during these times are the highest but don’t give in. Whatever your dream is, if it’s important to you, then fight for it. Just remember that there is more than one way to achieve your dreams. If one way doesn’t work, just change your strategy. Never giving up doesn’t mean you keep doing the wrong things over and over, it means to be smart and figure out the correct actions to take and then taking them until you achieve your dreams.

    Life is a woman and death is her sister, neither are physical so they can’t have a mister, when you look for mother nature, but you find father time, don’t turn to anger or crime, you need to be mature, through life comes death, and through death comes life, no matter what you do, your destiny will never change, life is full of these kinds of turns and twists that make you mad, with evil around you will be sad, but what i believe is you should be glad, glad you had a life to live, glad you had good to give, for when you have seen what you will see, and done what you will do, to tell you the truth, your destiny fulfilled is the real need for youth, no one can change who you are nor what you be, not your mother, not god, and not even insightfullists like me, all can be said until your dead and gone, is to do the right thing, and try to fight through the negatives in life, that’s the true reason for living.

  35. Explore. Plan ahead for the possible pitfalls. Strength of will. Live in the moment. Be who you are. Feel how you feel. Be honest with yourself and those around you. Think big, be honest and hungry. Be known and loved for who you are. Be primal, raw and free. Exude energy, elegance, strength, kindness and grace. If you lose your way, look up to the trees and sky and breath. Breath and feel free. You are free, wonderfully you and completely alive. The world needs your special contribution. Never never give up. You can do this. You can. Be wild at heart and treasure your dreams.

  36. Never quit before the extraordinary happens, because then you won’t think of yourself as a unique figure in life. Everybody is unique, no matter what they do, or how they do it.

  40. These are all great quotes!

    What many people fail to understand is that even when things aren’t going the way you think they should, the Universe is listening. A positive attitude, even when you don’t understand why you’re not getting what you want, is really hard to maintain, but very important. The Universe will provide, but in its own time, and in its own way. You have to listen and be open to the hints the Universe provides you and be ready to take positive action in the direction of your goals for life. It works!

  41. “Do not grow weary of doing good, for in due season you will reap, if you do not give up.” (Galatians 6.9)
