Never Give Up Day is a global celebration day focused on cultivating a mindset of determination. Resilience is the ability to cope with the loss, change, and trauma that have been inevitable parts of life. We all go through difficult times, we all experience disappointment, loss, change, and we all feel sad, anxious, and stressed at various times in our lives. But building a mindset of determination can get through even the darkest days.
While many people focus on one aspect of “Never Give Up”, dealing with physical or mental exhaustion, Never Give Up Day can be anything that contributes to our society and the changes we want to make in this world, like fighting climate change, illness and poverty. Never Give Up Day is dedicated to all the people who go beyond their means to give the best of their abilities to achieve their goals, despite the challenges they face. Celebrating Never Give Up Day not only feels great, but it reinforces the behavior we want to show up when we face a new challenge or opportunity.
