If some one gives up without trying his/her best, do you think he/she is doing any good for themselves? Or it is better to try to best of their ability, may be they succeed in the end. What do you think, should they keep trying or give up not withstanding criticism?
I feel that we all have our strong and weak points and we cannot succeed in everything we take up. Once we are sure that we have the capacity to succeed, a small failure here and there should not really matter and others criticism should not be an issue at all.Once you are focused you can achieve since you know that you are capable and this very knowledge gives us strngth and confidence !
It depends on the person, on how much he/she is passionate about the success he/she want to achieve in their goal. It is very easy to give up. If you want success and fruitful results, you require efforts.
Giving up is no solution unless there is a strong reason to do so. Mere failure should not decide anyone's future. If one is certain that giving up will bear fruit and will not look as escapism then one must not waste time and jump into that which will bring good result.
It has been one of the strong policies of my life & character... Try, try and keep trying if you want something. You may not succeed always. But it gives a feel of self satisfaction, more than anything else. It it's a failure, I might comfort myself...it was not meant for me......I tried my level best...so no regrets. But if i give up before trying, it may hurt throughout my life thinking..... I might have got an oppurtunity...But I didn't attempt and lost it. I may repent also....... I always believe in experimenting with life with new attempts.
Best instance is my s/w career which never kicked off......because I never attempted.... I settled with my family life and little child and never attempted for a s/w job after we shifted from hometown, 7 months after marriage. In those days, i was working... and quit my job to join him..
If I have fixed some specific goals, my whole effort will be focused to achieve it. I do not believe in giving up half way due to fear of failure or fear of criticism. Even if the result is not favorable, the contentment will be great if you try your best with confidence, till the end of the game.
