Are you “giving up” or “surrendering” to your business?

What is the difference between “giving up” and “surrendering” to new possibilities for your business?
I had the most interesting conversation with a friend the other day. He was talking about “surrendering” to what happens in life and how that is so different than giving up.
Immediately, I thought of entrepreneurs who have given up on reaching their dreams, creating financial success, or of becoming an influencer in social media.
