Don't Ever Give Up - Keep Your Dream Alive

Don't Ever Give Up !!!!! Never Never Never!!!!!!!

by Candace Green

There is hardly nothing more beautiful or valuable to humanity than the God instilled inbred passion that inhabits the very depths of who we are. That passion is a dream.

Your dream can either take you to heights you never could imagine or you can choose to let it die and be buried in the complacent tomb of fear, marked by the cold stone of the ordinary. The cold stone of the ordinary has no unique shape or embellishments, mass fields of missed opportunities are lined with their identical markers with no future identity.

How can you prevent the death of your dream? Don't Ever Give Up !!!!!! Therein lies the evidence, the secret, the truth behind every human being that has ever marked their legacy. The story of every mighty warrior, president, king, inventor or any person who has made an impact in their lifetime. Their story, their message, their advice or their unending legacy is summed up with these simple, yet profound words-- Never Give Up!

Paralized By Fear?

FEAR is the enemy of success. What do we fear the most? FAILURE!!!!!

No-one wants to fail, no-one wants criticism, no-one wants to look like a fool in front of their peers. I hate to disturb your emotional moment, but it takes failure to succeed. Quit looking at the rich, famous or the world renown with rose colored glasses. Every last one of those you admire have failed at one time or another. The remedy to failure is not to beat your self up, give in to defeat, build a wall around your personality to make you look tough,but it is like the old saying says, " If first you don't succeed try try again." What all successful people have done is fell flat ( some may have laid and mourned awhile), but they ALL got back up.

Thomas Edison failed over a thousand times, but because he tried again we have lights in our house and many other wonderful conveniences.

What is it that you desire to become? What difference can you make whether small or great in the world you live in? Why be someday laid away forgotten? The dream that lies dormant with you could impact generations to come. "Ask God for direction, He will lead you into realms you never thought were possible."When you are in His will, there is no limit to where He can take you.

Count on dream-killers to always be present, but only "you" can let your dream die.

Never Give Up !!!!!!!

Most everyone has heard the story of Winston Churchill when asked to do the commencement speech for a school graduation. Everyone expected a profound, intellectual, lengthy lecture from the world renown politician and orator Winston Churchill. He just simply leaned his cane on the podium and preceded with one of the worlds most famous and remembered speeches. Looking at the crowd of young people beginning the most crucial time of their lives he simply said, " Never Giver Up!" He repeated it a few times to the spellbound congregation who were astonished, then walked away.

The three letter, repeated speech (given by a man of integrity and respect) impacted the nation of that day and still rings out of every student's history book. Winston Churchill's father rejected him and told him he would never amount to anything, many would name that an acceptable excuse to give in , a sympathetic exempt , a reason to label himself a failure, and refer him to adjust to the low life he had been destined by his father to become. Winston Churchill never gave up!!!!!!!!

Jealousy, backstabbing, cocky attitudes, dominating, cheating, lying, stealing, and all those kinds of ugly acts people use to get power is not an option. You may find superficial power, but you're a coward.

Real success advocates integrity----- Keep following your dreams, believe in yourself, every day ask yourself the question, "What can I do toward becoming my dream?" No, this does not mean that you are selfish or caught up in yourself and your agenda, but actively putting feet to your faith in what God has called you to be.

Last but not least NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like this hub. But question: what happens when the dream starts destroying things around you, mostly financially, like family or friends? Let's say it's beyond doubt that this dream is what you're good at and what you want to do, but no maytter how hard to strive for it there's a supernatural rebelling force every time. You can't beat it, and when you try stuff happens.

Just a question, and it's one I've been thinking long and hard about.

It really depends on what kind of dream you are talking about. Sometimes when we venture off toward our dream everyone around can become resentful and downright intolerent of our decision. Is the reason for your dream to make a better life for you and those around you? If it is not just a personal selfish enjoyment then sometimes you have to play tough love. Tell your loved-ones with complete self-control that nomatter how they see you now, you see the BIG picture and more importantly you see them a defining part of that picture.

One big reason people flinch at your dreams is that you have dared to do something not normal ( out of the ordinary ). People are wired to enjoy security ( even though what they call security can bottom out). The dreamer sacrifices normality to persue and achieve a larger than life fulfillement that only risk takers share.

The only way your dream can literally destroy anyone, if you let it die. Then you destroy yourself and delete the impact you were to leave on the lives of others.

However, screwed priorities can declare war against your dream. You have to keep a balance or you will hurt those around you emotionally. Create ways to include them in your journey. Together, create a wish book or journal. Be gentle, let them express their feelings and try to understand. Resentment can often be wiped away with just spending quality time with your loved ones.

When you produce, you will earn their favor.......Give it all you got and come back with something to show for . Don't make promises that you don't intend to keep. A dreamer can't just BLOW they have got to GO! I hope this helps:.)

This is the first time I have heard of the speech by Winston Churchill but it really does make a lot of sense - probably the one thing that can guarantee success. :)
