In life even in our work,we feel sometimes exhausted,disappointed and even like giving up.It might be a sign of weakness though but we are only human being....we are destined and tag as a weak human entity.In my case i just try to listen to music and try to let my imagination play on possible rewards I can give to myself after a long stressful day of working.I always see to give myself a reward no matter how small it is to motivate and have strength on the next challenge to come in the working place or even in other aspects of life. How about you?how do you relieve the feeling of giving up on something?

We all succumb to feelings of helplessness to the point of giving up a couple of times in our life. Its understandable as our world isn't for those who have weak stomach. (Just some fig of speech, of course) Whenever I have giving-up attacks, I just look back and re-live all the things that I've gone through and succeeded. I think back on the hardships that I have to endure to get where I am now. And then I also step back to take a good look how much closer I am to my goal than let's say, last year. Just thinking about all these, knowing I've gone this far for my dreams is enough to make me feel that giving up is the last thing on my mind.

when i feel like giving up i usually think about my parents and what they sacrificed for me to have. and also i usually call my friends to hang out with me to ease my feelings because they will lift me up after talking to them but sometimes whenever they have their own problems to tend, i usually read books or watch movies to lighten my mode and re-think the things that have happened.

Giving up may not sound motivational but sometimes it is actually the good thing to do especially that you cannot handle already the pressure. Giving up comes in because sometimes we set unrealistic goals and expectations. if i feel like giving up i just think positive, if others can do much that i can. I have experienced so much pressure and stress especially in my work. i just look for some ways to handle this one, and find some thing that motivates me. Stay away to the people who tried to inject negative thoughts in you.

Whenever I feel like giving up I take a couple of minutes break and then I keep on going.

I have felt like giving up in several occassion but I usually try to look at the positive side of everything. Infact, that what get me motivated in continuing doing something even if there is little gain at that particular time.

I just say to my self may be this was not for me. And I go out eat what i like, go the place where i feel good and then back to work on another goal. It's not that simple as i said it is but you have to move on, as you said we are human and we do get weak, but we get back to work with new hopes and new ambitions so i try the same thing :).

There are many ways of motivating ourselves when we feel like giving up. In our job, when we are tired and want to give up- just think of our family who depends on us and that is enough for us to go through waves and storms. In our lives, it is our loved ones that matters most and when we consider them as the best assets we will never give up life because our family and loved ones are the most important, yes, more important than our own life.
