Often many people decide to give up or stop trying when they are not succeeding. You may think that not being able to understand the “how” will always result in failure. Or you may think that there’s no use making time to help understand or solve a problem because it will never work.

But, have you ever thought about what happens when you give up?

Sure, there may be a very short period of relief, but life is long, and that short term feeling fades rather quickly.

As a high school student, there are times where I don’t feel inspired and feel as if what I am doing is pointless. Sometimes if I really don’t understand something, I will drop the course and forget about it entirely. But this is not the best approach. Instead, you should always try to find the positive when you face challenges. Regardless of what the issue may be, there will always be some positive in every negative. For example, if it’s tough and difficult right now, think about the future and everything that comes with it if you persevere. All success stories carry some sort of difficulty or hardship.
