Have you started a goal or a new career? Or maybe you have finally decided to work on your lifelong dream. Justin Cobb knows that with the glitz and glamour of the beginning in a certain goal, failure or disappointment is bound to occur. At that point there are two choices: either you stop or keep going. “Most people need to understand that nothing worth having comes easy. So many people get discouraged to fight for their dreams, and fear facing constant rejection, but this is something that should motivate someone to pursue their goal even more,” says Justin Cobb.
Sure, you have started your goal. But it’s your job and responsibility to carry it out. There is always room for improvement and bettering your way of doing things to reach a certain place. Justin Cobb has accumulated 4 qualities of people that don’t quit:
- Never take no for an answer. Winston Churchill has said, “Don’t take ‘no’ for an answer, never submit to failure. Do not be fobbed off with mere personal success or acceptance. You will make all kinds of mistakes, but as long as you are generous and true, and also fierce, you cannot hurt the world or events.” “No matter what anyone says about your dreams, do not listen to them. Them saying ‘no’ should be an extremely motivating factor for you to actually do so and prove them wrong,” notes Justin. Take that ‘no’ and turn it into ‘yes’ with your hard work.
- Look at challenges to be opportunities. Most people look at challenges to be a dead end, and they lack the perspective to know that this just a bump in the road. Try to reanalyze the situation and come up with new solutions on ways to lessen the obstacle or challenge and reach your destination.
- Learn and improve constantly. It’s no surprise that everyone makes mistakes. When you make a mistake, get insight from professionals or someone with expertise on how to do things better the next time round. Make the change to learn how you can see better results throughout your route to success. “The important thing to note is don’t let mistakes or temporary struggles bring you down. Each time you make a mistake and find out how to fix it, you gain wisdom that’ll help you immensely in the long run,” says Justin Cobb.
