Girl Stop Apologizing
Rachel Hollis
Contributed by Carey Speaks
Part 3-3

In this chapter, Hollis sets out to talk about the importance of being persistent by giving a list of her own achievements that called for immense persistence before their realization. She disapproves the idea that goals should have stiff deadlines, claiming that what makes people give up is the idea that goals are temporary objectives. It took Hollis years to get her first book published, and more years after that to get a best-selling book published. Finally, she asserts that goals are life-long since after achieving one, there will be others lying in wait.


Giving up is one of the primary reasons as to why people fail to realize their dreams. Hollis ascribes ‘giving up’ to the notion that goals should only be achieved within specific timelines. The author notes that it is normal to run into challenges that can delay a person’s achievements, while at the same time emphasizing the importance of being persistent when pursuing one’s goals by viewing them as life-long objectives.
