It's understandable to feel like giving up at times, especially when faced with challenges or obstacles that seem insurmountable. However, the ability to persevere and keep going even in the face of setbacks is a crucial skill to have. Here are a few examples of people who refused to give up and achieved great things as a result:

  • J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, is a well-known example of someone who refused to give up. Before she became a successful author, Rowling was a struggling single mother who was living on welfare. Despite facing numerous rejections from publishers, she never gave up on her dream of becoming a writer and eventually found success with the Harry Potter series.
  • A more recent example is that of the Mars rover, Curiosity. In 2012, Curiosity embarked on a mission to explore the surface of Mars and gather data about the planet's atmosphere, geology, and potential for habitability. During its journey, Curiosity faced numerous challenges, including technical issues and extreme weather conditions. However, the team behind the rover never gave up and, through hard work and determination, was able to successfully land the rover on Mars and carry out its mission.

These examples show that it's never too late to pursue your dreams and that giving up should never be an option. With hard work and perseverance, you can achieve great things and overcome any obstacle that comes your way. 

Now when it comes to encouraging our children to not give up.  It's important to encourage kids to persevere and not give up, especially when they are faced with challenges or setbacks. Here are a few tips for talking to kids when they want to give up:

  • Acknowledge their feelings: It's important to validate their emotions and let them know it's okay to feel frustrated or discouraged.
  • Help them see the big picture: Encourage them to think about the long-term goals they are working towards and how giving up now could impact their progress.
  • Encourage them to take moment and break things down into manageable portions.  Sometimes, taking a moment and breaking things up can help kids refocus and recharge. Encourage them to take a moment and come back to the task with a fresh perspective.
  • Help them find alternative solutions: If the task at hand is too difficult, encourage kids to brainstorm alternative ways to approach it. This can help them find a solution that works for them.
  • Provide support and encouragement: Let kids know that you are there to support them and that you believe in their ability to succeed. Encourage them to keep trying and remind them of their past successes.

Overall, it's important to be supportive and encouraging when kids want to give up. Helping them see that they have the skills and determination to overcome challenges can go a long way in helping them persevere.
