Surviving Tough Times by Adopting The Never-Give-Up Attitude
Whether you’re facing a global or personal crisis—or a mix of both— building a mindset of determination can help you cope with stress, overcome adversity, and enjoy the better days to come.




You can only win when your mind is stronger than your emotions –

when your imagination is stronger than knowledge and

when your dreams are more powerful than all the facts.






It isn’t always easy, being a sportsman – facing defeat, coping with stress or even handling the victory. It requires a lot of perseverance and a lot of hard work. And that’s one thing you learn in sports. You don’t give up – you fight to the finish.



When was the last time you told someone

how proud you are that they Never Give Up?

Wouldn’t that be an extraordinary acknowledgment

for everything that they’ve been through?






Never Give Up Day empowers people to develop a mindset of determination they need to achieve their personal best. A determined person has the power to make real change, starting anywhere with the potential to reach a global success.

Never Give Up Day Challenge – August 18th is a great awareness event idea to drive donations (walk 4 charity, run 4 charity, marathon, triathlon…) 




I have seen my mother, a smart, beautiful and strong woman, being shattered because she thought she was “supposed to” put others above herself, even if that meant them taking advantage of her good nature. She has been yelled at, taunted, humiliated, threatened, laughed at, broken mentally by people she considered to be her friends and family. All because she never stood up for herself until it was too late. She’s now one of the most powerful women in my life and I hope to be like her someday. She taught me to never give up in life. I will never give up on her until the very end.







“Freedom is never given, it must be fought for,

and often refought over and over.”

Our thoughts go to all those brave men and women

who maintain their struggle against overwhelming odds,

and refuse to give up! They have no choice

but to be at their strongest and most resilient,

because the fate of their nation rests upon their resolve and determination.











Important people are those who were there for you in the difficult moments of your life, to whom you sincerely want to say … Thank you for loving me when I was unlovable. Thank you for believing in me when no one else did.

                 Get Involved! Be someone’s reason to never give up!

So many reasons to celebrate Never Give Up Day 08/18




One patient with high-risk cancer had a mastectomy at age twentynine. At thirty-one, she had advanced Stage IV cancer with widespread massive liver and bone involvement and, subsequently, extensive lung metastases. She also had an amazingly strong will to live.

“I would get out of bed every morning as if nothing was wrong,” she once said. “I may have known I was going to have to face things and could feel sick during the day, but I never got out of bed that way. There was a lot I was fighting for. I had a three-year-old child, a wonderful life, and a magical love affair with my husband.” Thirty years later, she is still alive, still on chemotherapy, and still living an active life.
