There are many instances in our lives where we feel that we can’t take advantage of them just because we once or several times failed to achieve them. A lot of young people have dropped out of school because of seeing school as difficult. Other school children have already given up on other subjects that they learn in their classes just because they failed once or several times to pass the subjects. Some of the subjects include Mathematics, Economics, Physical Science, Biology, Matrix, Chemistry, and others. Other students have even reached a point of not wanting to hear the word mathematics, for they see it as a difficult subject. Other people have given up on their dreams just because they were told by their friends and other people that they are not worth it and that some of these opportunities are only meant for a selected group of people.

It might be that you failed to make it to college because of lack of money to pay for your school fees, since most of the universities and colleges are expensive like diamonds. It might be that you failed to have good friends just because your previous friends were fake like toys and not original like God’s love. Again, it might be that you failed to secure different jobs that you have been applying for and attending their interviews.

I tell you what, you don’t have to give up on trying to achieve your goals in life. You have to know that nothing good comes easy in our lives. Most of those successful people that you now respect in your society didn’t just reach that stage of success through an easy way. They had to struggle to reach their goals. Others even had to wait for years to effectively achieve their expected goals in their lives. As Richard Branson puts it, “Don’t be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again”. The late Nelson Mandela also left us with one of the strongest words, “A winner is a dreamer who never gives up”.
So, if you try to give up on your goals, are you going to be a winner?
