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!

Leave a comment letting me know WHY you started.

The Ancient Wisdom Every Entrepreneur Needs To Follow

 

Wouldn’t it be amazing to UNLOCK the kind of nonstop success you’ve dreamed of… and wouldn’t it be incredible if you just had to ask, and tada, money crashes through the roof right into your lap?

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

Seriously, there are gurus out there that promise you just need to set an intention and BOOM it’s yours.

As if!

Don’t get me wrong, setting intentions is a huge part of success… but there’s more!

Have you ever heard the parable of Two Farmers? It’s a great story about two farmers with the same seeds, but different mindsets. The story contains a very powerful message about decisions.

 

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

If you just throw seeds on the ground and pray for rain you’ll be sorely disappointed at harvest time.

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:

  • research
  • seek help
  • learn new skills
  • take responsibility for your success
  • AND pray for rain!

Share with us what you’re doing to tend to your seeds.

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.
