I wanted to quit so badly. I was losing my motivation. Someone tried to talk me out of things that I wanted to do. I was disappointed when things didn’t go my way.
Negative thoughts made me want to quit things that I dreamed about for so long, things that mattered to me the most.
Not quitting was the best thing that I have done in my life. There is no bigger accomplishment in my journey than not quitting on everything that I love and that matters to me the most.
I get it. We all go through rough times. We all have times in our lives when we feel like everything or everyone is against us. You are not the only one who experiences that.
Do you want to know what kept me going during the worst times in my life? It was the love I have for this life and the hunger that no one could take away from me. The moment I think about how blessed I am to wake up in the morning, to be able to walk, to be able to hear, see and smell, motivates me more. I start counting my blessings when I think of all opportunities this life has granted me.
If you are going through a rough time in your life right now, think about this: how great would you feel when you accomplish all your life dreams and goals and not quit along the way? Will quitting make your life better? Will quitting set you up for success? Will quitting benefit you in any way? NO!
Put together all the things that you are grateful for in life. Recall every good thing that happened to you and focus on this. Don’t focus on bad things.
What helps me to keep going is the picture I create in my head. I am a big dreamer. I have this perfect picture in my head of what my life will be or look like when I accomplish everything that I have planned. I carry that picture in my head 24/7, no matter what.
Make yourself proud and keep going, even when you have doubts and you feel down. Remember that quitting will not speed up the process of achieving those dreams.
You can do it!
