Never give up in things that you do.

Never give up in things that you do.

I have had this in mind for so long and I think that this is the right time to make this thread. It is about how 2018 has been a blessing to me. This year was one that I began not knowing how my freelancing lifestyle will look like.

There was a time that I nearly gave up, but with the encouraging words of my friends, I kept pushing. I learnt so much while making a lot of friends this year and I know that this is what will happen to someone else as long as you don't lose hope.

Man I feel somehow like you. When I started freelancing, I didn't have the slightest idea of how to do it. Honestly, I was kind of afraid I wasn't able to eventually make it online, and surely there were times where I wanted to give up. Just like you, my friends gave me the strength to believe in myself and keep pushing. So, never giving up, and learning step by step without rest, took me to where I'm standing right now as a freelancer.

This is so inspiring just like what the op wrote. I'm new online and trying to see how to pull through. I hope to remember to push on even when my strength fails me. It never easy but we just have to move on.

Believe me, it wasn't easy. But, I started learning a lot on these platforms, asking to the rest of the members in the different communities. Also, I started reading about freelancing, to get some serious information about it, tips on how to improve, so is just a matter of putting effort on it.

There is this time in life when you feel inadequate. You think you cannot make it. It is in such situations you wish like throwing in the towel. Do not. Success is always around the corner.

Your story is one good motivation to other freelancers out there. It doesn't matter how hard it is, you don't just give up on something that you want. Maybe in the future, If I would feel the same way as you, I will just remember your story to brighten up my mood and to not give up easily. If other people could do, why can't I.

Right, the only thing I would change in what you said is to have some rest, really overworking yourself can make your burnt out and lost motivation to do it, you need to have rest, for me it's essential to be successful in freelancing, without rest, it would be a daunting task, everyone needs balance in their life without it, it would be so hard and you will struggle a lot.

We never should give up. Always think those problems we encounter as a challenge that we have to face in order for to us succeed.

Sir Winston Churchill said, "Never, ever give up."

He repeated it several for those without a good hearing to do and sat down.

What an inspiration!

Yeah right, challenges are what makes people grow and develop as a human being, struggle is a great motivator for us to strive hard and to persistently try to do it until we succeed, that would be so rewarding.

I never give up on anything. It is totally ok to fail and retry. Failure will teach you many important lessons which might help you face tougher situations ahead in life. People around you will keep pushing at you but you have to keep going. Success comes only to those who work hard in silence and ignore people's comments.

Same as you I almost gave up being a freelancer but someone told me that it's better to work at home and just work as freelance as long as I give my very best and can find a suitable source of income then I should never lose hope as there are more successful people who worked as a freelancer than working outside the home.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Alright I wouldn't forget that I know it never easy as people think especially if the freelancing work isn't really putting food on the table or picking up bills. The good thing is that we can still do better at it.

True. At first I don't have any idea about freelancing until such time I knew my friends were actually working as a freelancer and little by little I am earning money even not going out for work.

I have been telling myself that it better to work online on a good paying site and make good of it than working offline for some nasty bosses. I'm just believing we can get there if we put our minds to it and see how we can get good jobs from freelancing sites.

Online working needs you to have many options. Atleast now I have two eBooks on Amazon. I need someone to write me a review. I can give a free book in exchange

There really are some crummy bosses out there, and going back to a toxic work environment is certainly one of my motivators to keep on going with my freelancing work. I have some big goals for 2019 that I want to achieve and putting in the hard work and the long hours is part of that, I think.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

stbrians

Sure working long hours and with high concentration helps in achieving ones goals and moving forward




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

cjctm11

That could be the one of the reasons why people are turning to freelancing jobs, because of the boss, management or those busy schedules and by then when you turn into freelancing jobs and you don't have some patience then you could consider offline jobs once again. So it is good to just never give up on everything no matter what we do. Just be patient and enjoy what we really want.

In life,you've not lost anything until you loose hope. Whatever comes your way,never loose hope.With freelancing, things are bound not to work your way,especially for beginners, but you have to keep trying until you achieve your goal.My story with iwriter is that of never giving up.Not everything i wrote was accepted but I never lost hope.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

You will never achieve anything if you give up any time your faced with some obstacle that stands in your way. In the freelancer's world, it is hard to find work when you start out but if you are patient, you'll find clients some of whom will consistently offer you more work.

So be patient and keep working hard to perfect your craft. Also don't be afraid of sending emails to potential clients asking them whether you can write an article for their site. This is one way to find new clients.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

JBeleren

Thank you for this information. I have not tried emailing prospected clients and asking then outright for a job, it is bold and makes absolute sense. You will never if you'll never try and I am definitely trying this one.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Jeane

You should try it. At times people don't know they need some help until you point it out to them.

Anyway, you could make it easier to find potential clients by using the search query "write for us."




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I haven't tried sending emails. Thanks for the tip. I will definitely apply this. I didn't know it is okay to do it this way. Writing for free for websites is a great way to promote your work.

Giving up is the cause of failure..in freelance writing, you don't need to give up all you need is have hope that thing will be okay in due time..




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Alymae

True. In freelancing jobs, this is a part. In order to better your craft as a writer, you would need to go to a lot of challenges and some of them end up as a failure. For me, writing is not for the faint-hearted because of the failures you would first face in order to succeed. In writing, you might face a lot of rejections. So, stay positive and just believe.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I agree with you. You may feel tired and exhausted. All you need to do is rest and reflect, you don't have to give up. It's just an intermission of the great things that's coming.

That is right. As long as there is life, there is hope. This morning there is a man committed suicide in a mall here in our city. He gave up what he wanted to do in life. I think there is no more joy in living for this man.

Don't give up. Three words that are very powerful. I try to apply this to my life. I decided that when I pursue something I will never give up on pursuing it. I promised that I will do my best in everything that I do. I believe that when you don't stop you'll definitely succeed.

I’m glad to hear that 2018 has been treating you well. Personally, for me the year has had a lot of ups and downs. Sometimes I’d receive plenty of work, and it would get my hopes up, thinking to myself “This is it! I’m finally going to make a stable income from this business!”

And then next thing I know, there’s a clog in the pipeline and all that wonderful work I had flowing in just stops. The only thing that kept me going was the hope that more work would eventually show up, and while sometimes it did, other times I really started to worry about where I'd get my next paycheck from.

While 2018 wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t great either. My main goal for 2019 is to just try and get work on a more consistent basis.

Sometimes people give up easily. Not me, when I want something, i get it. When I have an objective, I accomplish it. In times that I'm beset with problems, I solve it. I never give up. People who give up on something are losers.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Alania

Well, honestly, it does sound good. Never give up is my motto. But sometimes you gotta know when you should indeed give up, because pursuing something bad isn't good. Most important is to prioritize all the necessary things properly. Long story short, don't give up on good ambitions, but give up on bad ideas.




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Jelineex

It's always a good values to impart on ourselves that whatever we do, we must do our best. Giving up is not always an option. Dreams are not meant to happen if we easily give up. Our patience and determination is tested during difficult time. We need to have a strong faith and believe in oneself that we can do it. We must also evaluate the circumstances to improve and find ways for better solution.

You're right on spot, therefore I want to share something with you. Since the childhood, many of my friends told me that I wouldn't go far in life, simply because I didn't do what everyone else thought would be right. Eventually, I have a family already and our own house, and they didn't even finish university yet. Ironic, isn't it? Never ever give up! Don't follow someone else!




Are you sure you want to delete this post?

Jelineex

Just like a song "Que Sera, Sera ( Whatever will be, Will be) the future's not ours to see." neither of your friends won't know the future. It just a way of thinking. A possibility that it might happen or not. What's important is you found your happiness and your complete as a person. Having a family, is a blessing from God and not everyone have it.

Thanks for this word of encouragement. I really needed to hear this. 2018 has also been one of the toughest years of my life. I have had to wonder sometimes if I'm going to make it especially in terms of freelancing. I'm almost at the point where I'm giving up. Freelancing is so hard and the work is not steady. Because there is so much competition the pay is peanuts and clients treat you how they want because they can always get someone else.

I watch a lot of kung fu movies. LOL. Yes I do like the action of martial arts. But the teachers or masters often make very wise statements. Like one of them said something to his student about not giving up but knowing how to adapt. I can't remember the exact quote. But I did follow the sage advice.

Haha. Well, you might think is funny, but my dad likes those wise statements too. He even knows some of them by memory, like when I'm watching a movie with him, and suddenly I realize he knows what the guy is saying. In fact, he likes any kind of movie that leaves a good lecture.

Achieving goals in life are not always easy. Sometimes we'll hit bumps along the way. And sometimes we'll be sidetracked and moved away far from our goals. It's disappointing to realize that where you are right now is too far from where you want to go. When faced with failures, self-doubt kicks in, especially when struck by setbacks one after another. I know the feeling of disappointments and frustrations because I'm still on my journey of reaching my goals in life. So many times I have thought of giving up but realizing where would I be in life if I quit on my dreams, motivates me to move forward. I just regard failure as stop over to reflect if I'm still on the right way to my dreams.

mitan143

I strongly agree with this. Just never give up to everything you started to do. All efforts and opportunities will be wasted if we give up easily. Also, it is normal to fail or to make mistake but take it as a challenge that you're not that useless and weak to be just defeated by struggles.

TheInsaneSakif

Life can get challenging sometimes, but it's important that you don't lose sight of your goals. You just have to keep pushing no matter how tough it gets. Many people give up just when they're about to hit success. So don't give up!

Never give up in things that you do: I also encountered that kind of feeling in which you think you already have done enough and you can't do anything anymore like you are too tired enough to think to solve the problem you had encountered, but by the help of my partner, his advice and understanding enlightened my mind that no one should quit for you to succeed. I learned that you yourself also is one that can help you to be successful. Live your life to the fullest and move forward to your dream.

Never lose hope. I once read a line that says something like, be thankful that God has waken you up from your sleep today. He must not be done with you yet, there's reason for your pain.
Hang in there and be strong for good things will come.

I have started so many times and quit so many times that l have lost count. I have tried a lot of things that have turned out to be either scams or they were just taking too much time to yield anything. The good thing is that l have always returned stronger. I have learnt something every time l have abandoned a project and they are mistakes that are helping me in my business today and mistakes which l will not be making again anytime soon. The truth about online work is that you can not make money by wishful thinking you must be ready to put in the work and the time in order to achieve anything.

I think it is a very good idea to not give in everything we do because we cannot ever win or achieve success if we will be losing of hope immediately on our selves. We should have the strong determination to do things on our own despite of any problems that we may encounter along the way. We must be a positive thinker as much as possible because it would help us and nothing is impossible if we believe on our selves.

There is the adage that says “try and try until you succeed” although you cannot take that literally because there are times that you have to quit when the impending outcome is already clear that you are on the losing end. But when you are striving for something that you really want then I guess you can never give up hope until your last resources are spent just to push forward with your agenda.

Yes this is my mentality, to never give up about the things the I am passionate about, to never give up on my dreams and to believe in myself that whatever struggles that I may come through is just a part of the process of being successful in my career. I am motivated everyday just because I want to change the quality of my life and I want to help my parents and give back to them what they've sacrificed for me.

I think leaving something incomplete is never a good thing to do. One must always think a lot before committing to some work or project. After you have consciously decided to take up a task you must always try your best to complete it successfully by overcoming all the difficulties and problems that you may encounter in your way. Quitting something midway will create a very bad impression about you and it will also bring down your confidence. Once you are able to complete your work in spite of all the obstacles you will feel very confident to take up new challenges in the future.

Yes, this is true. Every day is another hope for a new beginning whether it is New Year's day or just an ordinary day. This is why we have to be grateful of every new beginning given to us. We should not let the chances pass. Don't be afraid to lose because there is always another day to win. Either way, you'll never know if you will win if you won't try, right?

That is true. Every day gives us that opportunity to keep working better towards winning. This is something that is necessary and important for us to understand as a people. You can't actually win unless you have lost some in life as well.

I agree@gutzman, everyday there is a new chance to win. You may loose today but tomorrow is another day to try and win. Never ever give up.One of the best examples is a Chinese bamboo tree. It is used by self development experts to teach us lessons of faith, patience and perseverance. that takes five years in the ground growing, but once it sprouts OMG. It grows 80 feet in just six weeks. I think this is a fantastic lesson for anyone, the hard times are your season to grow and anchor your roots in the ground, you will need them for all the success you are going to experience.

Just don't give up on anything you do. If you give up, you cannot succeed. If you don't give up there is always a chance that you will succeed in some moment, and you will. Always believe in yourself. That is the point of whole life. To believe in what you do, and to always have a goal. Just go towards it, that is the only right way in your life. And remember, the battle is being won by the small victories! Win in every single day, by not giving up!

Freelancing is really tough. If you are a starter, expect less than what is expected. Money will not come easy, it's going to be hard work because you need to prove something and doesn't have the portfolio to speak for you. I thank the Almighty for the opportunity to be able to venture into freelancing. I know it is not going to be an easy ride, but I will exercise patience to reach my goal.
