Getting on a career path was easy for some. They graduated high school, and slid straight onto the right path (or what they felt was the right path). Then, there are people like me who search for what seems like a needle in the haystack. All the while, I have never been confused about the fact that this world is too big and plentiful to live with limits.
With the no limit theory, it is easy to get overwhelmed. Even more, it is easy to give up because you figure you have more options, right?
People who are successful commit to something. They see it out and see things through. Your life and career will grow when you see things through.
If you give up, what will giving up look like? What will the result look like? You have given up before. Save the sob story as to why because it doesn't matter. What matters now is that you resist. You resist giving up like your life depended on it.
