Episode 347 - Never Give Up with Rob Shallenberger

Ep. 347
Every time we try to achieve something, there are two possible outcomes -- we either succeed or fail. That is why most people believe that failure is the opposite of success, which is not. Failing is just a possibility; the opposite of success is giving up.In this episode, we focus on one of the 12 Principles of Highly Successful Leaders, most precisely the 12th principle: Never Give Up. We explore and get inspired by those that succeeded not because they didn't fail but because they kept going despite failing countless times, like Elon Musk, Michael Jordan, Viktor Frankl, and Thomas Edison.We learn about the power of having a dogged determination, keeping trying after failure, and never considering quitting as an option. We also go through two real-life examples of how our mind can trick us into thinking of giving up as an "honorable exit" and the lessons we can learn from that.Tune in to Episode 347 of Becoming Your Best, and get the motivation you need to never consider giving up as a viable option.In This Episode, You Will Learn:Why you should trust the process and keep going despite failure (4:47)Some examples of people who accomplished great things thanks to dogged determination (6:01)How weird mental gymnastics can trick us into quitting (8:54)The importance of quit doubting ourselves (10:37)The Iron Cowboy and his inspirational challenge (13:11)Always start with a vision, not with a problem (15:58)Five inspirational quotes to remember when quitting feels like an option (18:57)Becoming Your Best Resources:Becoming Your Best WebsiteBecoming Your Best University WebsiteBecoming Your Best LibraryEmail: support@becomingyourbest.com Book: Becoming Your Best: The 12 Principles of Highly Successful LeadersBook: Conquer Anxiety: How to Overcome Anxiety and Optimize Your PerformanceFacebook Group – Conquer Anxiety

Do you spend most of your time, thinking of new strategies and business plans or nurturing personal relationships with your loved ones?
