Never give up

Never give up.

You are never completely beaten unless you are dead.

Never ever hang your head down in defeat.

You’re still standing, you survived!

 

Only you can break yourself, with your mind.

You can choose not to be your worst nightmare or worst fear.

Just like to a bully, stand up for yourself, and learn the tricks of the trade.

Gain the right tools you need for success.

 

Failure is not an option.

You fall but will always have the strength to stand up.

You are not built to stay lying down, to be on your back or knees.

You are built to stay upright, confident, passionate & fit for purpose.

Continue to aspire, continue to dream.

You have a creative personality; don’t be bound to any one form.

 

Flow like the sea, expand, burst your banks, and break the flood barriers.

Nothing or no-one can hold you back.

Do not let another person’s opinion or attitude influence you.

Have your own judgment, you know right from wrong.

 

You know what you have to do.

Worry about the best way to do it.

Don’t loose track of your ultimate goal.

You will be derailed from time to time.

Don’t let that destroy your dreams.

    Hi,
    I like your poem in many ways; but please do not take so literal the phrase: "Failure is not an option", living like that makes you too afraid to live, too threatened to have a mistake. If you want your child to feel free of that fear, please let that child make mistakes as well.
    This is just an opinion, because I wish my parents had given me that opportunity instead of making me feel so anxious and guilty with my own mistakes.

      Hi. Thanks Dolphine, comment appreciated once again.
      We all fail at times, its life. We must make mistakes to grow and learn. The phrase "Failure is not an option" continues,
      "You fall but will always have the strength to stand up" (in other words you fail but will always have the strength to stand up) just means don't give up! Don't see yourself failing, see yourself prevailing. I agree that parents/adults should not finish a statement or advice to a child with only "failure is not an option". But at the same time, it can help them set better goals. I believe it can make you more competitive, but they should express to the child that winning isn't everything, neither should they dwell on failure. I hope that makes sense and helps.

      Happy New Year, I hope you win at whatever you set your mind to in the new year.

    On the other hand, "failure is NOT an option"...could we think of it positively in the sense of the poem's theme...that you never give up, but keep at it until the end?! Where will you find the strength to ALWAYS stand up? If like the Bible says of God's servants, that He makes them to stand, then you ever will, by Him alone, seems to me.

      Amen! You hit the nail on the head Missy!!! With God by your side you can and will always get back up!

    Failure is only in the mind, be strong and keep pressing on, success often comes through danger. I like the sentiments in your poem, never give up for God is with you.
