I remember feeling so stuck and depressed back in 2011 when I lost a huge chunk of income in my business.
There was this terrible knot in my stomach whenever I worried about where my next check was going to come from.
I hated that feeling of uncertainty.
For a while, I thought about giving up on my business and going back to working a 9 to 5 job.
But instead, I kept moving forward.
And once I was able to push through those mental roadblocks to get my business back on track, I had my biggest year ever in terms of clients, customers and sales!
So here’s what I want you to remember when you feel like giving up…
Challenges Are An Opportunity for Growth
What I realized is sometimes it’s necessary for us to go through the discomfort of being lost and stuck to get to a breakthrough. There are so many important lessons we need to learn about ourselves that we would not be able to fully grasp if we never had any challenges along the way. For instance, if I had never failed in my business, I never would have learned how to regroup and bounce back even stronger. And if I had never experienced defeat in my career, I never would have learned how to overcome any obstacles that come my way.
You Already Have Everything You Need to Succeed
If you have been given a big vision for your life, then you need to trust that God has also given you the ability to make it come true. The universe is ready to support you and your dreams through the people and opportunities that are being placed in your life. So when you hit a bump in the road, it is NOT a “sign” that you should quit. Just because it feels hard, doesn’t mean it’s time to throw in the towel. It just means that you need to access your higher self – the part of you that refuses to allow your FEAR to be stronger than your FAITH.
It’s Not a Question of “If,” But “When?”
As time goes by without seeing the results you want, it can be easy to slip into the valley of doubt, wondering if your hard work will ever pay off. That’s why it’s so important to spend more of your energy in the space of inspired action than you do in the paralysis of fear. In other words, focus on moving forward versus dwelling on how much farther you have to go. You have to know that at the end of the day, you will achieve your goals. It’s not even a question of IF it will happen, but WHEN. And as long as you stay on the court, you will eventually win the game.
If you’re in a difficult season in your life right now…keep going.
It WILL get better.
Your miracle is on the way.
