MOTIVATION: Don't Give Up When Results Aren't What You Want
I know it’s easy to give up if you’re not getting the results you want; but remember, things usually get tougher before they get better!
Don’t be discouraged if you aren’t where you thought you’d be by now. We set #goals for ourselves and often times we have a set timeline in our heads; a vision of when everything should come to fruition. And sometimes, it doesn’t work out exactly as we had hoped. But that doesn’t mean you’re on the wrong track, or that it’s the wrong goal. Nor does it mean you’ll never get there. Sometimes we don’t know the exact path of our journey. We don’t know how long it will take us to finally get to that breakthrough. But if you stay the course, readjust your approach as necessary, you WILL get there. It may not be the exact timeline or in the exact way as you had planned, but true perseverance is all about staying the course when things get difficult. That’s when you have to lean heavily on your inner beliefs and highest #values to push you forward - when you feel exhausted and can’t think outside the box. Instead of questioning yourself, beating yourself up with negative self-talk, or giving up altogether; consider that the struggle is just another obstacle you have to overcome to get to that coveted goal. You will get there, just breathe deep, and take it one step at a time. What goal will you push forward on even if you haven’t yet seen lasting success?
