Why do we give up so quickly?

Why do we give up so quickly?

Why do we give up so quickly? We never give up trying when we are a baby. My 7 month old attempts things, a hundred times. I watched him on his hands and knees rocking backwards and forwards on the one spot for weeks and he even goes backwards before he goes forwards, which is funny for me to watch, but frustrating for him as he moves further and further away from his toys. Then one day right in front of my eyes he starts moving forward on his hands and knees so temtatively but he is doing the thing he has been trying to do for weeks and then Im sat there asking myself when did this happen? When did my baby learn to crawl.

See the thing is it didn’t happen straight away, he practised for weeks and he never gave up. He didn’t know which day he was going to start moving forward or how long it was going to take. He just knew that that was the direction he wanted to go. So why do we give up so quickly now? Have we lost sight of our intention? Maybe we don’t have a clear intention to begin with? Maybe we are not clear with what we really want? The direction we want to take.

So is it key then to form a clear intention? No, that is only the first step, see its simple for a baby, they are just clear with what they want and keep taking the actions to achieve it. Whereas we need to bring our clear intention to life and imagine what it would be like to achieve it and experience the emotions you would experience if you achieve it. See what creates you in the present is the future you are living into. And if you create the future you want to live into all that is left to do is take the steps each day that work towards that future and enjoy the journey.

Now that would be great if you didn’t have a bunch of opinions and circumstances that keep firing off and getting in your way. Sometimes I find myself in a bunch of conversations trying to negotiate and control the outcome, which is the sea of opinions Im talking about which confuses the intention. See my baby wanted to move forward. He was clear the whole time, the fact that he moved backwards before he moved forwards didn’t affect his intention to move forward. His intention was clear. Plus he hasn’t learnt to communicate so he doesn’t have a bunch of opinions stopping him from taking actions.

So how do we quieten the sea of opinions? There are some simple things we can do to quieten the mind, such as take a walk for instance or find a quiet space where we won’t be disturbed, you can use a tapping technique to bring the focus back to the body, tap your arms and tap your legs, focus on the breathe, breathe in for four seconds and out for four seconds and repeat for eight rounds. Observe your thoughts rather than engaging in them and set a time to meditate everyday.

See we can’t negotiate or try to control the outcome as much as we would like too, that is just more of the same. And why we give up so quickly is somewhere in the sea of opinions and should only be observed, not entertained. All that matters now is what is important to you, having a clear picture of the future you want to live into, taking the action required, repeating it and trusting the process. My Boy is now practicing pulling himself up into the standing position he smiles each time he does it. He is clear that is what he wants and it makes him happy.

Try setting a time to meditate on your intention each day with the remindmylife app. and don’t give up.

You will find other resouces dotted throughout other blogs I have writing. As I write on many topics there is too many to suggest.

  18. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I might as well
    check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.

    Look forward to looking over your web page for a second time.

  19. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am
    a blogger, and I was wanting to know your situation; many
    of us have created some nice methods and we are
    looking to swap techniques with others, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  20. A motivating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you
    should write more on this subject matter, it may not be a
    taboo matter but usually people don’t talk about these issues.
    To the next! Kind regards!!

    1. Thank you again for your feedback. Unfortunately Im not sharing anybodies links in my comments, so I have removed it from your comments sorry. Im just keeping comments to comments only for now. Hope that makes sense.

  21. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally
    educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue iss an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for
    something regaarding this.

  22. Everything said made a lot of sense. However, think about this, what if
    you composed a catchier title? I am not suggesting your information isn’t good., but
    suppose you added a post title to possibly get people’s attention? I mean Why do we give up so quickly?
    RemindMyLife is a little vanilla. You could
    glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write news
    titles to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to
    grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.

    1. Its been a long time since I was at university. I don’t envy the stress and deadlines you must have. Writing about topics you choose and enjoy is so much easier I find it just comes naturally. I wish you luck with your essay writing.

  23. Having read this I thought it was really enlightening.

    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both
