... ask yourself these questions:
What if I give up?
What's the worst case scenario?
Would I like where I'd be in case I give up?
What would I lose—permanently? Am I really prepared to lose it?
What if I don't give up?
What's the best case scenario?
Where would I be?
What are the possibilities? What would I gain?
Most of the time, the worst case scenario is not so bad after all. There's always a lot of room to recover from it—and a lot of things to learn. No, the worst case scenario is usually not a matter of life and death. And it doesn't happen often.
The best case scenario is more likely to happen. Even when it doesn't, what usually happens is a lot closer to the best case than the worst.
Will you still give up?
