Do you feel like giving up?
Does life have you down and does success just feel so impossible right now?
Is everything falling apart around you or constantly going wrong?
Are you having one of those days or even weeks where you want to scream, cry, or maybe even punch a wall? (Don’t actually punch it, I did and my hand SERIOUSLY hurts.. #truestory).
Maybe you feel like you’re always going from one challenge to the next and you’re worried you can’t keep going. Like, when will things get easier?
I’ve been there… screaming, crying, panicking about things going up in flames or wondering if I’m delusional and if I’m just drowning. Days where I feel like I’m drifting, losing my grip and “control” of things.
Do you ever go on what feels like a “losing streak”? Where life is just bouncing you from one challenge to yet another disappointment? You’re beaten, you’re down and you wonder if it’s even worth it to get up again?
I know things are dark and dreary right now, and you’re going through the thick, mud of it all, but keep going! You can do it, all you need is to believe you can and just wake up every day and do the best you can.

When You Want To Give Up
Do you have a massive goal or dream that you’re trying with all your might to accomplish?
They always say no one ever said it would be easy. They sure didn’t, but no one said it had to be hella difficult and nearly impossible either did they?
The reality of success is that everything always takes longer than you think, plans more often than not go wrong and success takes hard work and dedication. It requires you to get up when you feel beaten, to show up when you feel broken, to put yourself out there when you feel inadequate and to push yourself when you feel empty.
Achieving your goals is hard! And you will have days you feel so defeated and like you can’t make it happen.
You’ll have other days when you just don’t feel like it or when you’ll need to take a break from the magnitude of what you’re trying to accomplish.
Entrepreneurship almost requires failure, results after defeat, calls for those who shouldn’t, by all means, couldn’t but do. And you can too!
Dig deep friends, this journey needs you to push harder than you ever have before, to be persistent, insistent, and consistent!
NEVER GIVE UP, the dream is still alive as long as you keep going and believe in yourself.
