Stick it out

Jen: What’s wrong?

Mike: Ugh! I don’t think I can continue to run my small business anymore. There are too many obstacles and I want to just give up.

Jen: Oh don’t say that! Think positive! Plus you’ll overcome all those obstacles and your business will succeed. Just stick it out and you won’t regret it.

Mike: You really think I can stick it out?

제가 Mike에게 “What’s wrong? 너 무슨 일이라도 있니?” 라고 묻자 Mike가 “Ugh! I don’t think I can continue to run my small business anymore. There are too many obstacles and I want to just give up. 사업을 더는 못 할 것 같아. 걸리는 게 너무 많아서 말이야. 그냥 포기하고 싶어.” 라고 했습니다. 그러자 제가 “Oh don’t say that! 그렇게 말하지 마. Think positive! Plus you’ll overcome all those obstacles and your business will succeed. 긍정적으로 생각하면 그런 장애들을 이겨낼 수 있을 거고 결국 사업도 잘될 거야. Just stick it out and you won’t regret it. 그냥 끝까지 견뎌봐. 후회하지 않을 거야.”라고 했습니다. 이어 Mike가 “You really think I can stick it out? 내가 정말 잘 버텨낼 수 있을까?”라고 묻자 제가 “Yes! Absolutely! 그럼, 당연하지!”라고 격려해 줬습니다.

오늘 영어표현은 stick it out입니다. Stick it out means to endure something until the end and to continue to do something despite the difficulties. Stick it out은 ‘끝까지 버티다, 마지막까지 견뎌내다’ 라는 뜻입니다. 성공의 비결이 바로 처음에 세운 뜻을 끝까지 밀고 나가는 초지일관에 있죠. 어려운 상황 속에서도 초지일관으로 최후까지 견디면 누구나 성공할 수 있을 것으로 생각합니다. Let me give you some examples. 예를 들어 볼까요? “Sometimes, I don’t feel like exercising at the gym but I know I have to stick it out if I want to get a beautiful figure.”라고 하면 “때로는 체육관 가서 운동하는 게 싫지만 아름다운 몸매를 원하면 끝까지 운동해야 한다는 걸 안다.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. 또 다른 예를 들어 보겠습니다. “In spite of many naysayers, Mindy didn’t give up and she stuck it out with her plans.”라고 하면 “반대하는 사람들이 많았지만 민디는 이에 굴하지 않고 자기 뜻대로 밀고 나갔다.”라는 뜻이 됩니다. Now you know what it means to ‘stick it out’ right? Then we will listen to the conversation for the last time.
