Giving Up Just Short Of The Gold

[tweetmeme] When you are pursuing a new venture and it doesn’t seem to be working out, it’s a natural impulse to quit and call it a failure.

When you have been eating right for weeks and nary a pound has fallen from your body, it’s understandable when you say ‘I might as well be eating a pizza’.

When you find yourself in a whirlwind relationship and all of a sudden turbulence it’s the air, of course the first thoughts will be ‘I must have made a mistake – I’m outta here”.

Most of us feel a tug at some point in our journey, even when we are passionate about something, if it occurs that things just aren’t going as planned. And we want to bail.

Do you think that those of us who bail a bit too soon are the same people who never truly get to experience the joy of achievement? Are the people who thrive the ones who hit a speed bump, and another and another but STILL continue in spite of it all?

All I know is it’s very frustrating to bust my tail for little or no reward. When this happens my thinking gets distorted and I begin to question my abilities, motives, and worthiness. Now this will surely thwart my possibilities don’t you think?

What it truly takes in times of adversity or breakdown is that inner muscle. The one that says, ‘I’m going forward no matter what. I am going to see this thing to fruition – and only THEN will I decide if I want to give up or not. Not because I am confronted with a challenge, but because I CHOOSE to. Bring on the challenge because it build my stamina, it strengthens my determination, it thrusts me forward’.

Continue until you get to the GOLD!

Happy Thursday
