Never Give Up


By Ashutosh Karnatak

Never give in; never give in, never, never, never, never – in anything, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of  honor and good sense."                
                                                 -Winston Churchill

Our life is full of complexities and trifles. Every day a new problem comes on the lap, wherein others had already taken place and hibernating there with an anticipation of the solution, which may or may not come up in near future. These problems have definite impact in our mind and cause mental stress .Living with mental stress is Life, which one likes or not but it is true position.The man is enrangled
                   

From the above it is clear that the man is always engrossed by old and new works and problems and in fact, no day he experience when he find himself free from this. But the key is how one faces these all with Courage, Conviction and Will. However, Saying easy – Doing difficult – as most of us find ourselves in crossroads when we leave the work, after not getting success and the life goes on like this.

In the epic of RAMAYANA, Ravana kidnapped Sita from their residence in the jungle, Lord Rama was very much disturbed on this subject, and ultimately he delegated this responsibility to his disciple Hanuman. When Hanuman was searching Sita, he did not get it anywhere and but he has not left any hope. Sometimes he was dejected also but due to his “Never GIVE In” approach, he became ultimately successful in searching her.

Few Years ago an actress naming Sudhachandran and accomplished dancer broke her leg and he dreams were shattered to become a good actress having core competency in dancing. After some time it was known that, she has started dancing with artificial legs and now she has earned his name as a skilled television star.

Infosis Narayan Murthy, his story is well known – today the empire of billions of rupees has been built with a pecuniary amount of Rs 10000/. He with his five friends has dreamt for a mission .It is not that they have not faced any difficulty on the way to establish such a huge empire. They were not having sufficient amount to travel by car, they were not having any telephone connection when they got first contract and all sort of problems. However, the man has not accepted any defeat that is why today he is owner of biggest software empire of India.

Sherpa Tensing when tried to climb on the fist time could not accomplish in his mission. Then he said to silent mountain that you cannot become more than what you are today but after this defeat I would become stronger and shall be able to have victory over you. With this conviction – he has become a history by registering his name as first man who climbed on the Mount Everest.

Why we give up:

The basic instinct of man is laziness and inertia – he does not want any trouble in life and wants to face least resistance so that he remains undisturbed Instinctively he does not want any problem. This is the basic concept of any human being.

But in the course of life some persons adopts another route – although in their mind the basic instinct works but they do not want to have defeat and takes the bull by Horn . They face troubles boldly and face nay sort of resistance – but they do not give up.

However, in the competitive life later category of people are more successful than former one.

How to Develop Habit of Not Giving Up:

1) Before taking the job assess your capacity:
Its is an essential ingredient as we take up the job without assessing our capability and capacity. It is worth noting here that if you want to fill a tank with the water, it can contain only up to its capacity, balance shall be spilled out. In case of compressed fluid, you can fill the substance in a pressure condition that gain has a limit. In the same way one need to assess the capability and capacity at normal, compressed, and take up the job accordingly.

2) Develop Patience :
It is one of the main ingredients to success. One should not ruffle on the failures, as they are one of the outcomes of the process of work

"Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish." – John Quincy Adams

F rom the above quote, it is clear that Patience and perseverance has magical effect on difficulties and obstacles. Edison has tested 9000 times before final product as “Light Bulb” came into existence. We should have sufficient patience – things are bound to happen. It is also observed that the objectives also test the patience of the person. A weak person having little patience cannot become successful.

3) Perseverance or “Lage Raho”:
Success is not an easy thing to get. You might have seen many successful persons. Their success is not the outcome of one-day effort – they have been doing the work with constancy and perseverance. They do not leave the work until it is completed – that is the main attribute leading them to be successful.

Being defeated is often only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
                          -- Marilyn Voss Savant 1946-NA

The above quote rightly cautions the individual in leaving the work in between as defeat is a temporary condition whereas giving up is a permanent one. Thus better is keep it doing till you get your target. Try and Try again.

4) Determination :
It is such attribute, which is essential for any body if he wants to be successful. It is again an intrinsic quality of man. Determination to do, determination to achieve something in life. It is like a thirst for achievement. Develop it within self by practice. Think that you would not keep silent until you achieve the target, what ever may be circumstances – Chodne Ka Nahin (Not to leave)
It is worth mentioning here that any attribute, which you require to inculcate within you, requires deliberateness.
To start with, take one target on time and determine it to complete and after completion of the same, go for another one.

5) Develop Resistive Power :

Resistance is also one of the attribute, which deters man to accept failure. In the parlance of electrical engineering, resistance is the quality of the wire, which restricts flow of electrons, in the same way resistance of man, is restricting the flow of feel of failure into the system.
I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I have been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. That is why I succeed.
                                                      -- Michael Jordan

Therefore, whenever such situations arise i.e. you meet with failure on the way do not let it go to the mental system. Put as much resistance as you can. It will enhance your mental strength and which will grow with the time. A successful person has strong mental strength and more resistance to sustain no success cases.
Based on above readers are requested to implement these techniques in their day-to-day life and reap results.
