So what does never giving up really mean? It means believing in yourself. It means willingness to accept “failure” so you can learn the critical skill of adaptation. It means not compromising on your most important values, and walking the walk, rather than just talking the talk. It means living the life you want and are passionate about.

I pushed through the struggles I faced during the startup of my new businesses, and learned a lot about my dream by implementing it and bringing it to life. I learned to adapt. I learned that if you’re not being challenged, you’re not living life to the fullest. I learned that if you follow someone else’s dreams, you won’t be as engaged and excited as you are when following your own. I’ve also learned that all of these benefits are good for your brain, as well as your soul. So never quit on the things that are important to you. Self-belief is the most important belief there is.

There have been a lot of challenges along the way. There were times when doubt cast a gloomy shadow over my aspirations and goals. Sometimes I thought it would be a lot easier to give up on my dreams and change career.  It certainly would have been easier — but I wouldn’t have been fully fulfilled. I vowed I would never, ever give up on my dream.
