The verge of giving up

Have you ever been on the verge of giving up where you know you have so much to get done but the task has become too daunting and the time to deliver has approached much faster than you prepared for.

At this point, you have lost sight of the benefits of the work you are carrying out and your focus has pretty much become insular and self preserving. From my life experience so far, and much research on the life of others who have achieved success, there is almost always a great gain just beyond that verge of throwing in the towel.

No matter how hard it seems, you have to keep going.
Remind yourself of the picture you saw before you started, and just keep going.
Consider your values of delivering what is expected of you, then just keep going.
Trust the process of life that quitters never win and winners never quit so that you keep going.

If you have been close to the verge of giving up recently, remind yourself of these truth, pick yourself up and just keep going again.
