Of course if you give up when the going gets tough, you won’t be reaching that goal. We all live in a world that seeks out instant gratification and when perseverance doesn’t deliver, quitting is viewed as an acceptable option.
Too often people are seen jumping from one job to another or if they try a business and do not see results, they change their field and venture into a new one. In one way this indicates the inability to handle failure. In another it shows the lack of proper goal setting.
Often people may fail to reach their goals because they do not know how to handle failure. They either choose to give up or change their goals when they face problems or do not get quick results.
Another consideration that factors into giving up is distraction. After setting up a goal, you may get distracted as other things come along making you neglect or even forget about your initial goal.
