When to give up? - A true freelancer's worst nightmare. - Reality kicks in.
With motivational speeches like this:
And many many others.. We live in a world where people give up easily and others tell us to keep on fighting. Keep working hard.. And to stay true to ourselves.
The thing is, that there's also hundreds of things that says the opposite.
It's also easier to give up when you've been struggling for weeks, months or even years.. It's an easy solution. It's the easy way out.
That being said, if and when you decide to give up, nothing is really solved. You just avoid the actual problem and you take a detour to avoid the time you spend struggling.
- Seriously though, does it even matter?
We have, A
, a person who has been struggling online with his freelancing career for months. Perhaps even years. And we have, B
, a person who "won the lottery
" and hit the jackpot with the very first thing they did online..
Person A is a fighter and person B is someone who got literally everything you want and need on a silver platter.. - And the scary part is that Person B
, is usually the one who'll tell person A to never give up..
Nevertheless, at some point, you'll just have to give up, or am I wrong?
I mean, you've been doing literally everything you can and everything others have told you to do. You've tried everything you can think of, you've spent countless hours researching, learning and you literally hit your head into a brick wall day in and day out. - And despite all that.. You still keep fighting. You fight for what you believe in and for what you want..
At some point, you'll just have to give up.. But when is that time? - When do you decide to quit? - At what point do you just drop everything and turn your back to what you love? - How can you take that decision and when is the right time to do it?
