4 Things To Remember When You Feel Like Giving Up Your Dream
By: Joseph Bonner
Remember why you started
Take time and reflect on why you started on your journey in the first place. Have circumstances changed in your life to alter the reason you sought changed in the first place? If the answer to that question is no, take courage, you will reach your goals if you don't give up.
Remember that have people to prove wrong
Do you remember how many people said that you would never make it? If so, then you have all the more reason to push ahead with your goals. Don't give people any legitimate reason to look down on your wise choices. Keep going!
Remember to keep your goal in mind
Don't forget where you're headed. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the hustle that we begin to forget where our unique path is leading us. From time to time, write down your goals and mentally reflect on them. Analyze how much closer you are to reaching them today then you were a year ago? This will give you an opportune to look at your situation objectively, and you may come to see that you're much closer to reaching your goals than you realize.
Remember to take a break
A break from the struggle from time to time will afford you an opportunity to mentally, emotionally and physically reset your mindset. It can be compared to going to bed at night. Our bodies have a chance to rest. When we wake up, we don't just run out the door. We take the time to get dressed, fix our hair, brush our teeth, etc. Similarly, when we take a break from the struggle, it will give us an opportunity to relax, reset out mind, make the necessary changes and adjustments to keep growing and then we're off and running again with renewed energy and focus.
No one said the road to success was going to be easy. You have shown by your life course and decisions that you are no quitter. Your strength, determination, and intelligence contributed to much of your success thus far, and you should be very proud of yourself. Keep going, and you WILL reach your goals!
