Arrow How do you keep on going when you feel like giving up?

I normally think about the past and how things worked out anyway...Therefore I don't worry about it anymore. But I want to know how you guys actually get yourself moving when you feel like giving up?

Hi Ryanman!

Recently, I discovered I rarely take big steps forward due to fear of failure, wasting time or making mistakes.

It's amazing how immobilizing those 3 fears are!

My largest challenge is taking a step forward because it has become so comfortable to learn and educate myself.

Too bad the money tree is near dry and its time to get the ball rolling, so at this moment, lack of funds is what motivates me!

If this weren't the case, making things fun would motivate me! Once I get my feet wet a couple times, setting challenging but reasonable goals will keep me truckin'!

Thanks for the thought!

I keep focusing on my future, my goal, and making a commitment to completion.

As far as I'm concerned, the only way someone can fail is if they QUIT and so quite simply, I never cease to keep my eyes focused on the prize.

There might be struggles at times, and no doubt there are frustrations...but in the end, will it be a worthwhile fight? Absolutely.

Just mt 2 cents !

You should try to gain some insight into WHY you feel like quiting. It may be that you need to re-assess what you doing or the entire direction that your life is heading in. Feelings, even negative ones, may well be offering you the opportunity for getting some useful feedback and altering your course of action. Perhaps whatever you are doing is not congruent with your core values and you ought to quit rather than continue fighting yourself. Sometimes the "negative" is a blessing in disguise that gives us valuable insights to new paths of action.

Default Re: How do you keep on going when you feel like giving up?

I have my moments when I just want to throw my hands up in the air yell, "I quit!". But these personal pity parties don't last long because deep down I know that giving in is not an option. If I can't fix my financial situation today I can at least do some sort of exercise to improve my health, reach out through a phone call or email to someone that I've been meaning to re-connect with, read a little bit from that book that's been sitting on my table. Small things that still give me a sense of positive forward movement, or taking control, of knowing that I can keep going. This keeps that window of opportunity open just a crack in the hope that things will eventually get better.

For me, giving up is not an option. I keep focused on my goals no matter what the hurdle. Actually, I felt a bit bummed about not being adept in a certain important area of my business but then I thought, "I always run into hurdles. It's always hard for me at first. But, then I keep on researching, learning, and talking to people until I finally get it."

Tip Re: How do you keep on going when you feel like giving up?

Hello Omari Taylor Here,

When I get discouraged I just think about my "Why" and the reason I doing what I'm doing. Thinking about my "Why" is more that enough motivation to get me through anything. Anyone reading this that ever feels like quiting you must have a goal that is so powerful you will stop at nothing to reach it.

What often works for me is looking at things as a challenge and an opportunity for personal growth. A person may feel like giving up but if what they're imagining, planning, and striving for is something important to them there's every reason to keep going. As I like to say: "A man's strength is developed through many and great trials, tribulations and challenges." So you may as well keep going and learn something amazing about yourself.

For me there's nothing worse than knowing I quit something which was important to me. I'd rather face pain, failure, humiliation, rejection, and self-doubt than wrestle with knowing that I gave up. So if you can accomplish something- and you almost always can- you may as well go ahead and accomplish it. That's what I always say.

Default Re: How do you keep on going when you feel like giving up?

I actually allow myself a limited time to have a pity party(operative word is limited). Acknowledging my frustration, sitting with it for a bit, and then transmuting it into action gets me going.

Reading books that reaffirm my belief that god is within us and tapping into that power propels me forward when I want to say the "hell with it all!"

Recalling a past success and focusing on my "compelling why" helps, too.

It's not just ONE thing, but a combination of things that helps me when the going gets tough.

Find what works for you. And sometimes what works will change.

Have a poster of your dream in front of you on the wall. Visualize yourself having already achieved your dreams, and that will get the wheels in motion again.

A poster of a Porsche or a car you want to own someday helps you to never give up.

Hard-headed! Never liked anyone telling me I can't do what I say I can. Even the idea of me quitting on something I believed in enough to start, makes me wonder... am I the person I think I am or just another fake? Can't stand a fake!

When you are avoiding something you know you should be doing, you can ask yourself this question: "What's in it for me?"

Sometimes we forget why we've set our goals, and we need to be remembered.

Default Re: How do you keep on going when you feel like giving up?

There was a point some months back where I was very discouraged. I felt that others were posting about making money quickly and I was still spending more than I was making online and under tremendous financial pressure. And then I realized.... so what that it takes me longer to find the key to success... as long as I keep trying different keys... as long as I'm careful and don't simply try the same thing over again. Then I know I can get it.

Watching people trying to find the right key for the right lock was actually one of the tasks in one of the Amazing Race shows (a couple seasons ago). Some people who had been trying to find the right key for their lock for an hour or more were just emotionally devastated when another contestant would run up and by sheer luck find the correct key in a half-dozen tries and pass them by. Other folks were very good at not taking their eyes off THEIR goal, their key, their lock.. so what that guy just dashed ahead of me and life isn't fair. I'm going to get it. I'm going to get it.

Stay focused. Make sure you learn from your experiences and repeat after me: I'm going to get it.

Just my 2 cents.
Anne

I'm with Cara above - I give myself a little time to site back and pay attention to the emotions I'm going through, dealing with them in other ways that just ignoring them and powering on with whatever I've been doing. It normally only takes a couple of days and I'm back on the task with a renewed sense of energy.

It's no use saying something is a waste of time, or it may take me months to do this, because those months are going to pass by whether you do something or not.
So just do a bit at a time, break it down into small chunks.

Default Re: How do you keep on going when you feel like giving up?

Well, it really boils down to what you want out of life. Let me ask you this:

Do you want the following:

1. A "real" job.
2. Long hours.
3. Mean bosses and co-workers.
4. A possibility that your income could be suddenly cut off by your employer (Termination or Layoff).
5. Struggling to pay bills.
6. Living in a normal home.
7. Driving your old beat up car.
8. Your hours are set for you.
9. Having to wake up to a blaring alarm clock (day shift).
10. Having enough energy to stay up (night shift).
11. Get paid for far less than what you and your time are worth.
12. Having to swallow your pride.
13. Depression despite the fact you DO have a source of income.
14. Tons of stress.
15. Being just an average Joe!

Or do you want this:

1. A job that you enjoy.
2. Varied hours (short or long, your choice).
3. NO bosses and NO co-workers.
4. Zero possibility that anyone else other than you can cut off your income.
5. Bills are paid for.
6. Living in an above average home.
7. Driving the coolest car in your hood.
8. You set your hours.
9. Wake up when YOU want to.
10. Go to sleep when YOU want to.
11. Get paid for far more than what you and your time are worth.
12. Being able to give the finger or the crotch chop to ANYONE who bosses you around.
13. Big smile on your face all day everyday.
14. Tons of relaxation.
15. Being among the people that look down at all the broke or underpaid idiots!

So when you look at it, think about what you have and what you COULD and SHOULD have if you don't give up. Besides, giving up is the absolute easiest thing every living, breathing soul on Earth can do. It is also the absolute worst thing every living, breathing soul on Earth can do.

EDIT: One other thing: For my fellow warriors that are struggling to make money online: Take my post, print it out, and put it in front of your workstation. I hope that this will motivate you to keep going. Because the more I think about the BS I know of at jobs, the more it sickens me to death!

The voice spreading negativity to give up some times gets strong. Frankly speaking at those times I put myself away from that task for some time and when after some time I get back to the task with a fresh mind I over come that voice.

I like to remind myself that giving up means that I had totally failed. This will help me to think about what is wrong with what I am doing and what I can do to change my actions and hence the results.

I have written an article titled how to get things done even when you don't feel like doing it. You can read it if you would like to have more info on this topic.

I have been using tools from Access Energy Transformation and asking questions (the mind loves to solve a puzzle). These two work well for me:
1. How does it get any better that that? (this can work for good or bad situations)
2. What else is possible?
You don't just think about what the answer is--you allow it to come to you. And you can repeat the question over and over like a mantra and it will help you get out of a yucky place and start to feel better.

Giving up has never been a phrase in my vocabulary. I have always pushed forward. Sometimes this means going around or over the block, or in extreme circumstances crashing right through. The thing i always remember is NEVER GIVE UP!

I kept thinking about success and my goal to be the Asia Top Success Coach.
When I'm really down, I will take small step, complete small tasks to remind myself of the things that I can do.

I bang my head on the table, cry, meditate and then push on. I tell myself this is the only way I am going to have the liberty of not having to work for someone else. I can't give up because my child and animals like to eat everyday.

I learned one thing when i was 12 years old and most of you guys must heard that story as well but let me revise it here:
There was a king who was sitting in a camp and was about to give up and then suddenly he saw a spider climbing on the wall. The spider get down and start climbing again and again and at last after 6 or 7 tries he succeeded in climbing and the king said to himself that its a small spider and don't give up so how can I being a super human.
This story is not much impressive for few people but it is still the best way of moving yourself when you feel like giving up
Thanks

I keep on thinking about my family's welfare if i give up. "Keeping a goal in order to motivate me to always go on."

If you give up you'll be back to nothing and with no dreams. Doesn't sound too appealing to me. I had plenty of opportunities to give up but I knew there was something better for me "out there" and now that's is coming to pass with my online ventures. They say the times you feel the most like giving up are the times you're the closest to a breakthrough

When I think about giving up and doing something else. I think about not just why I am doing this but Who I am doing it for. Which is namely my kids. I work to give them a better life. So I can give them the things I never had. I don't just mean material things. But things like being there to tuck them in at night because I can work when I want. Not being dictated to by a company and having to go out in the evenings as my father did.
Keep plodding on in this business it doesnt pay to jump from one thing to another, stick with it there will be light at the end of tunnel.

Whenever I`m down I try to not do the things that got me down. For example if somebody made me sad, I don`t get in contact with him for a period of time. Or if it`s about of a lost love I don`t listen sad music or I try to get me around people as much as possible. If it`s about money that I`ve lost, I thinking about the periods of time when I`ve made good money and try to make me believe that if those happen once, it can happen again.

For me, it is remembering if I don't stay active and product I will have to go back to my worse fear a j.o.b. and that is not an option.

You have to stay focused and know that giving up is not an option. Surround yourself w/ like mind successful people. If needed, hire a coach/mentor (strongly recommended). Who better to learn from than those who had gone before you.

Determine your motivation level. My motivation level is not returning to Corporate America. What if I don't want to go to lunch at noon or don't want to work at 8am?

I also love the quote below. Hang in there. You never know, we could possible do a JV some day.

“I will prepare and some day my chance will come.” Abraham Lincoln
