Never Give Up

This is a fascinating video about how a Chinese farmer spent 5 years watering bamboo shoots. He did not see any reward for his efforts until one day the growth started. People thought he was crazy for spending time tending to an empty field that never showed any signs of growth. He could have used the land to grow some more food for his family. There is quite a message of resilience in this video. Enjoy!

    • I agree Charlotte! I was really tired last night and it was late for me. I wanted to go to bed but decided that this story was something that had to go on my blog. We can learn much from this Chinese farmer.

    This made me teary-eyed now. I just want to give up but when I visited this blog, I am overwhelmed by the message for me not to give up. How should you keep yourself motivated all the time? Thanks for the encouragement here.


    • Just trust in God-God says in His word ( the Bible ) that you pray and ask for Jesus to come into your heart. I trust in God and not man. That is how I keep motivated. Thanks for coming to my site Serenity!

    I love this short quote: “Never Give Up”, that’s the key to being successful in doing every thing, not just weight loss.

    • Trung, winners never quit! Everyone that is successful has gone through trials and struggles. The winners pick themselves up, brush off the dust and keep going.

  • Very touchy! Anyone can watch the video as it will inspire and people can relate because of
    our experience in life. Thanks for the post.

    • Becca, we all inspire each other in the new way of conducting business on a global scale.

    Hi Daniel,
    We can learn a lot from this video. Every human being will inevitably face a trial and challenge in life. Every trial certainly no solution out or solution. You and I do not ever give up on trying to find the way out.

    Hi Daniel,
    Thank you so much to share this inspirational video of a Chinese farmer. I also believe that once we make the unequivocal internal commitment to do something, when we absolutely know this is the time and the place to act, the world around us will shift in all sorts of apparently miraculous ways to make it happen and I think resilience and belief in our work both are equally important.

  • Wow this is incredible, and inspiring! Makes me want to plant an apple tree, or just about anything! Unfortunately the weather won’t allow it just yet.

    • Spring will be there for you soon Banta! Sometimes it takes years to reap the harvest from what we sow now!

  • Try your best, never give up and do avoid what negative people say.

    Thanks for sharing an inspiring post, Daniel 🙂 Somehow, I can relate this to my blogging journey. At this point, I’m still struggling to earn from my blog and even though I still have a long way to go, I will carry on because I know everything will pay off. Positive outlook always to invite positive results.

    • Shelon, you are headed to success right now! Enjoy the journey. Going to check out your post.

      • Shelon

        I am very hopeful, Daniel 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement.

  • Steven Papas
