The Consequences of Quitting

 

Do you feel like quitting? Maybe your goal is taking too long, it’s too hard, or you’re just not “good” enough.

Want to know a secret? If you quit too soon, you’ll never know what might have been.

The temptation to quit will be the greatest just before you are about to succeed.
Chinese Proverb

After working with hundreds of entrepreneurs over my career, I’ve learned that one of the most distinctive characteristics of success is the perseverance of commitment.

Ahhhh, there it is, the dreaded C-word: Commitment.

Commitment sometimes drags up fear. And fear often begets resistance.

But here’s the good news! Resistance offers you a choice: quit or continue.

Resistance is a call to action and an opportunity for growth.

The key is to anticipate the feeling of wanting to quit and make yourself a promise that the feeling will not overpower your commitment.

Remember WHY you started. If your passion is strong enough, you will never ever look for the easy way out!

Hello! Welcome back to planet earth where the key to abundance and prosperity requires tending to your intentions by taking consistent action.

You see, your goals and intentions are like growing seeds.

However, if you DECIDE to prep the land, carefully plant the seeds, pull the weeds, ask for help, AND pray for rain, your harvest will be bountiful.

You get to decide:

Choose a life of abundance and prosperity.

OR

Choose a life of lack, poverty and blame.
(Yuck, please don’t choose this one!)

Consciously choose success! Start now by taking consistent action:

The Advantage of Disappointment

Disappointment, we’ve all experienced it… you know, that feeling of being let down and somewhat defeated. But, did you know feeling disappointed in the short-term can be advantageous in the long-term?

I know, you’re thinking, come on Natasha, how in the world can disappointment be advantageous? Simple, disappointment builds-up your character and if you can learn to deal with your disappointment constructively, you’ll be a stronger person in the end. That’s a win in my book!

Recently, I dealt with a disappointment of my own. I had high expectations that something would work out in a huge way, but unfortunately things didn’t turn out as expected. I had to dig deep because for a moment I found it hard to deal with the unfulfilled expectations. Then I remembered there’s value in disappointment.

Here are 3 strategies you can use to turn disappointment into an advantage:

  1. Change Your Perspective. When something doesn’t work out how you imagined, that means you’ve successfully identified what doesn’t work. You can choose to be empowered, not paralyzed, by a disappointment.
  2. Remember Your Why. It’s easy to lose sight of your original motivation when disappointment sets in, but revisiting why you started can be just what you need to push through.
  3. Start Again. With a renewed sense of purpose and increased confidence, start again! You’ll notice a deepened sense of commitment and you’ll be your own biggest motivator.

As entrepreneurs, shoot, as humans, the issue isn’t whether we will have disappointments – it’s what we do when we have them. There is no magic wand, or special prayer that relieves of us ever having to FEEL let down. Acknowledge disappointments, accept them, process them, and turn them into opportunities.

You’re In Charge – Mindset Matters

I can’t tell you how many times I hear from new clients that they feel out of control not only in life, but also in business. They wonder who’s running things behind the scenes and feel like a bit player on the stage of life.

Do you sometimes feel the same way?

Guess what? YOU’RE IN CHARGE! Yes, you. You are the star, director, writer, and executive producer of your own life and actions. You’re no bit player, I promise.

Not knowing who’s in charge and feeling out of control totally sucks! It’s time you move out of Sucksville and into the life and business that is your God-given right.

Take charge and choose a “just do it” mindset.

Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” Ford was at the forefront of the “Just Do It” mindset movement.

Imagine every 8-year-old you know… in most cases they don’t doubt themselves. They want to try everything, and they are filled with enthusiasm. As adults, we tend to over think and over complicate situations which are straightforward. We can learn so much from children in the way they make bold moves with no fear of failing.

Right now, have the courage to take the bull by the horns and decide to be in charge of your life. Shift your mindset. Say yes! Yes, to being in charge of your actions, thoughts, and outcomes.

Yes, hard work, effort, and persistence are all important to a successful, happy life, but not as important as having that underlying belief that you are in control of your own destiny.

Fortunately, it’s never too late to work on your mindset. With the right mindset, you can accomplish just about anything… and that includes moving yourself right out of Sucksville!

Let me know in the comments how you’re shifting your mindset.

The Incredible Influence of Words

Have you ever thought about the number of words you speak in a day? The University of Arizona completed a study and found that most people speak around 16,000 words in a day!

16,000 words a day… ya’ll let that sink in…

I admit, I talk to myself. All. The. Time. And I’m here to tell you it’s imperative you recognize that your words matter and they often manifest themselves.

Words are so powerful and so plentiful. The words we speak have such an impact. With thousands of words flowing around us, it’s easy to be influenced by the words we say and hear.

Negative self-talk is poisonous and unfortunately, it’s a problem that many women, particularly entrepreneurs, suffer from.

Here are a couple quick tips to help you use your words as an opportunity to support manifestation while spreading kindness:

  • When speaking to yourself, ask yourself if what you’re saying is TRUE.
  • Be generous with your positive words, especially when speaking to yourself.
  • Are the words you’re choosing bettering yourself and/or others?

Choose kindness when speaking to not only yourself, but also to others. You have nearly 16,000 chances EVERY single day to manifest more money, happiness, and health, by simply choosing positive words.

Be sure to share  the video above and we’ll start a revolution of manifesting and kindness, one word at a time!
