Has there ever been a day where you simply just want to give up? Not go any further? And just have struggles?
Well I’m here to tell you, struggles are okay.
Struggles are truly okay to have but it’s really important that we don’t give up. Life is hard. And I’ll say that over and over again. But that doesn’t mean we should give up. You just can’t give up. You have to change your way of thinking. It’s all in your mind and your heart is how we think and how we express how we’re feeling. But it’s important that in the tough times, we don’t think it’s okay to give up. I’ve had struggles in my life where there were points where I really thought to myself, “I think it’s just time to give up.” But what was most important is I changed my thinking, my mind, and my heart, and it came to me that it’s not the time to give up.
Don’t give up on opportunities that are in front of you. Wherever you are right now I would definitely tell you to not give up and keep powering through. Power through to have successes. We each quantify our successes in different fashions. But whatever your idea is for success, keep it. You will be and you are successful in whatever you do but the most important thing is we can’t be giving up. We can’t give up in this life. That’s way too important that we’re present in our lives and we’re not giving up on opportunities.
Because I had an opportunity to see my mom raise us and not give up, that really has built a huge foundation in my life that goes all the way to my core. The core of who I am. And that’s what I’m here to tell you today. Maybe you don’t have it in your core, but you have to start practicing it. You have to practice it in your life to not give up. Focus in on what you want. Because there are opportunities all around you every single day that you can have the option to take. But with an attitude of being able to give up, that’s not a good reason or a way that you want to carry that with you.
You have to have the mindset that no matter what you do, do not give up. When you don’t give up, the successes are so much more rewarding. Struggles in life are going to happen. It’s all about how we frame our mind, our heart, and our thinking to understand what the challenges are and how we’re gonna overcome them and how we’re not gonna give up on something.
That’s powerful stuff, you guys!
An opportunity is in front of us, let’s take it and focus in.
Another example that I want to share with you is when I bought my grooming business. I didn’t even think at all about ever giving up. You know why? Because the risk was super high that I couldn’t even think about it not working or an opportunity to give it up. And I believe that’s one of the reasons I’m successful right now, it’s because that wasn’t even on my mind! I wouldn’t even have thought to give up n what was in front of me. It wasn’t an option! And that’s what I’m here to tell you today, don’t even have it as an option! Don’t give up. Because you can’t. You have to power through things. It makes us stronger in who we are if we go into something knowing that we’re not gonna give up. That’s powerful.
Another example that I’m gonna share with you guys is when it comes to workout routines, hey, we have all been there when we just want to give up and we don’t want to go back to the gym or burnt out or just sick of it, we just want to give up. I’ve been there! Over and over again! And it’s all about making a commitment to whatever you’re focusing on at that very moment and not giving up and pushing your self a little bit more. For instance, when I’m in the gym I sometimes want to give up because my muscles hurt so bad from the previous day that I just want to give up. But I think, okay, I cam here today to work hard so Liz, you need to work hard. And that’s what I say to myself and it literally gets me through to the point where I don’t give up and I actually push a little bit harder. And when I walk out, I am like the happiest person because I pushed through and I pushed harder than I could imagine myself doing. And I feel like I’ve accomplished something, I feel like I had a successful workout.
I’m talking about this today because it could mean big things and it could also mean small things. But I believe truly in this life we need to have a mentality that we don’t give up or we don’t give ourselves an opportunity to give up. Life is too short to be giving up on things. Stay committed!
I’ve learned in my business journey that when I stick with things and I commit to things more opportunities actually come in front of me because people trust me, people want to engage with me more because they know that I’m committed and that I won’t give up on what’s taking place. And because of that,.. More business! More opportunities! More successful accomplishments that I can make in my life.
So today, I’m gonna ask you to focus on one thing that you are going to commit to and that you’re not going to give up on it. And maybe it’s for 3 days, maybe it’s for seven days, maybe it’s two weeks, maybe it’s even in a month. But commit to something that you are not going to give up on and at the end of it, it’s going to be a reward for yourself. You powered through and you didn’t give up.
Be very passionate about what you’re doing and don’t give up.
