Success isn’t something that is going to just come naturally– you have to work like hell to make it happen. While we all may want that successful life, not all of us are going to have the determination to make it happen. It doesn’t mean that we didn’t have it in us, it just means some of us give up too soon. It’s not going to happen overnight and it’s not going to be easy. You’re going to have more lows than highs and you’re going to want to give up 90% of the time. However, the difference between those that succeed and those that fail are– those that succeed, never gave up. Sure they went through trials and tribulations that damn near broke them, but they kept pushing.
Giving up won’t make your journey complete
Sure, it’s going to be a hard and long road; but giving up won’t make it go any faster or easier. In fact, you’ll just end up feeling worse about yourself and possibly try starting over, which will then make the journey even longer. You have a goal of success for a reason, make it happen! Successful people don’t give up. They don’t throw in the towel when they experience trouble on their journey. They find ways to push through those troubles and come out even stronger. Imagine if you never gave up, imagine the feeling you will get from completing your goals and turning your dreams into reality. It’s going to happen, you just need to work for it.
Give yourself some credit– this is hard work
Maybe you have a family to support, or school loans and other debt to pay off or maybe you just want to be rich–eventually; whatever the reason for this journey, you took the first steps to make it happen. You decided to make a difference in your life and make it happen for yourself. That right there says a lot about yourself and your motivation. Imagine the feeling you will get when you actually make it happen. You are capable of doing big things, you just need to believe that you can do it and stop giving up on yourself. It’s ok to feel overwhelmed and discouraged, but it’s not ok to let those feelings control you and push yourself down. You need to remember why you started, get back up and make things happen!
It’s not going to be easy, but trust me– it’s worth it
Success is a long road, it can get overwhelming, lonely and just downright stressful. You’re going to get knocked down a few times and you’re going to feel like this was the wrong path for you to take. I promise you, things will get better; maybe not easier, but they will get better. Beautiful things happen when you stop giving up and start pushing. You are worth so much more than you imagine and you will become successful, as long as you stop giving up on yourself and start believing in yourself. YOU GOT THIS!
