“The day sends a message of hope to those who feel there is none. Never give up no matter how hard it gets.”
The City of Houston proudly joins community members in celebrating Never Give Up Day on August 18th. The Mayoral proclamation signals the city’s role in recognizing the impressive resilience and determination of its community. Never Give Up day is a global celebration focused on cultivating a mindset of determination.
Among the many resources at play in growing our economy, cultivating a mindset of determination and ensuring people have a strong sense of confidence in their own unique abilities are perhaps the most important. Whatever the future holds, the ability to bounce back from any type of setback will stand them in good stead. Never Give Up Day is also recognized as a significant day of influencing children; We know from many studies what happens when a person gives up. In a way, today’s Never Give Up Day helps demonstrate the importance and value of never giving up and the impact such a day has on society.
The global interest that Never Give Up Day generates for its annual celebration on August 18th is phenomenal. The message “Never Give Up’ is needed now, more than ever to lift spirits, and gives hope for a brighter tomorrow. The truth is no matter how much you try to plan and prepare for every possible outcome, life will find a way of surprising you.
This day encourages associations, charities, the public and private sectors, schools, universities and citizens in general to make this day a springboard for awareness-raising activities.
Never Give Up Day not only commends people who have reached their goals, but also supports those who are still trying to reach their goals. The day is for everyone struggling through life’s trials and using those trials to move forward. Never Give Up Day was first observed in 2019. But it wasn’t until 2021 that the city’s mayors agreed to proclaim August 18 as Never Give Up Day, making it a national celebration day. We believe that everyone fighting for a better future deserves to be encouraged to never give up.
