Never Quit is all about determination and grit

The Concept

Never Quit & Never Give up attitude is when a person is not ready to accept or acknowledge defeat or be crushed, whatever be the circumstances. Such people are strong-willed and determined and bounce back to life and never give in, even in adverse situations.

The Story:

This is how my 11 years old and 6-year-old understood the Never give up attitude.

The Disney Movie Cinderella showcases the perfect character of a person who never quits. Even in the face of such difficult times, she tries being good with her stepsisters and stepmother, accepts their all unfair rules, works hard, sews her own dress but still is unable to get what she desires. So does she quit after so many efforts? No, she prays for help and then appears her fairy godmother and everything falls in place. never quit attitude is not just about sticking to your dreams and working towards fulfilling them, but also equally about how to fulfill those dreams and what if one is unable to do the needful. Asking for help at the right time, praying and keeping the faith are equally important pillars of Never Quit Attitude.

Cinderella

Do you know that the writer of the Harry Potter series, Ms. JK Rowling had to go through tough times being a single mom and without a job? She was rejected by almost 12 leading English publishers before Bloomsbury; a small-time publisher paid her a nominal advance and agreed to publish the Harry Potter novels. Today she is one of the most popular female authors of our times.

JK Rowling

 

  • JK Rowling’s story tells us that even in unwanted circumstances you cannot afford to give up or quit. Only those who are adamant and stick around taste success.

How can I develop the never quit attitude?

    1. Develop an attitude of persistence. Just because someone does not believe in you or says you cannot do anything doesn’t mean that you need to accept that. Have faith in yourself. Believe in your dreams. And keep trying. You have to be obstinate when it comes to developing a never say die attitude.
    2. It is also about being passionate about your objective and goals.  When you have the desire and passion, you will never want to quit.
    3. Have a resilient attitude. No one can break you. Every time you fail or fall down, get up with more vigor and strength – accept that failure is a part of the road to success.
    4. And lastly when in self-doubt, try to maneuver your thoughts into thinking that it is possible, you can do it, it’s within your means.

So well written. Never quit should be everyone’s motto. Sometimes it can be difficult to explain the children about this but the examples quoted by you are excellent. Once my daughter came last in her skating competition she was really disheartened and did not want to participate in the next round. After a lot of assurance and asking her not to quit we finally managed to make her participate in the next round. And guess what she stood first in that. So guess it is just the way we tackle the situations.

Cindrella’s example stands out in modern times. I always interpreted Cinderella as weak and meek. but now I guess it is never quit in good in oneself that makes her a princess.
Have faith and seek for help. My friends , Anju always tell us this mantra.
An uplifting post written.

I was at my son’s school for the new term parents’ orientation. The cousellor there gave a concept that was actually alien to me. We as parents always want to encourage our kids to not give up. But at very young age, if pushed too hard, kids are likely to get frustrated and give up. I guess we as parents have to be very careful about not crossing that line.

A great post with an inspiring message, JK Rowling is an inspiration to many, Harry Potter was not welcomed initially and now it’s ruling the world. Loved your tips, great way of imparting learning to the kids

There’s a song that I live by. It’s called That’s the way it is by Celine Dion. It goes like
When you want it the most
There’s no easy way out
When you’re ready to go
And your heart’s left in doubt
Don’t give up on your faith
Love comes to those who believe it
And that’s the way it is

If you replace love with life you would realize that holding on to something is the biggest way of survival. Giving up is easy but tough people chose to see the end. Amazing post.
