Why We Must Never Give Up

We often hear that we must never give up on anything. I will not restate the same thing here told millions of times already. Well, not in this post.

Instead I’d like to share a piece of Chinese wisdom that may give additional motivation.

So there is an old Chinese proverb which is one of my favorites. It goes as follows. The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.

Got it?

If you quit, it means you almost achieved what you aspired for.

Almost. But not really.

There’s a huge difference here, and don’t be mislead by ‘almost’ or ‘nearly’, This is the difference between success or failure. As simple as that.

So next time you give up on something, think that you almost succeeded. But ultimately failed.

Indeed, brick walls are there for a reason.
