When You Want to Surrender

Does all the awful things that people are doing to people make you want to give up? Or have events in your personal life beat you up? Are you discouraged? Is it too much to bear and you’re ready to give up? When you want to surrender, don’t.

All way stop sign

Stop. Breathe. Give yourself permission to rest but don’t give up, deserve your dream.

Don’t Give up

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Thomas A. Edison

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. Don’t sell out.

Christopher Reeve

Don’t Wait

If you’ve fallen off course, you need to get back on the job. Do the work.

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.

Mark Twain

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

Walt Disney

Do not wait; the time will never be ‘just right.’ Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.

You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.

Jack London

You have the Power

The decision to move forward is yours. 

Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.

Victor Kiam

Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.

Oprah Winfrey

The most effective way to do it, is to do it.

Amelia Earhart

The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.


Re-awaken Your Dream

Revisit the reason why you wanted to do this. Remember your dream. Your goal at this stage may have been derailed, but that’s temporary. If this road’s closed, find another one.

A goal is a dream with a deadline.

Napoleon Hill

When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.

Elon Musk

Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another.

John Dewey
A determined idea, like a sprout, will find a way to grow

Change Your Mindset

When you’re feeling defeated, take a breather. Nap. Get some fresh air. Eat a good, solid meal. Find inspiration in reading, art, music, in meditation, or in retail therapy.

Find the crack in that wall of defeat and flower. Determine the detour you need to take. Pivot. Learn what you need to know and charge ahead.

They can conquer who believe they can.


The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.

Mark Caine

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Zig Ziglar

Deserve your dream.

Octavio Paz

It’s easy to get discouraged. It’s hard to keep going. But, your dream is a worthy dream. When you want to surrender, don’t. Push through. You can do it. Deserve your dream.
