I feel like quitting.
Is it really worth it?
Yes, it is.
The last week has been extra busy and my brain feels like mush. Working on your dream is hard work. Unless you come up with a Chia-tree success story no. 2 without any work and make millions in a year or win on the lottery, then working on your dream or goal, while you have a full-time job and a full-time life is hard work. There is no sugar coating that. Which is why the thought of going back to just working on my dream when I have some spare time (ha, like that ever happens) seems so tempting after a week like this.
No matter what goal or dream you have or what hamster wheel you are trying to get off, it requires work and commitment. Of course, first you need to make the decision to go for it and make that commitment.
Once you have made the decision, you need to stick to it. But see that’s the hard part. Getting out of debt, losing weight, working on making a passion into a paying job, becoming more intentional about your time, getting more organized, starting a business or whatever you are working on requires not only commitment, it requires hard work. It also requires you to not give up, and if you do, to get up and get back at it. It also requires patience and dealing with lots of trials, errors and frustration.
That hard work is why so many don’t succeed. It’s easier to give up. So in order to be part of the group that succeeds I keep a reminder handy. One that reminds me about my biggest dream. Travel the world. Not just part of the world but all 190+ countries. One of my best friends that make jewelry made me a bracelet that says Travel the World on it. I wear it almost every single day as a reminder on what I’m trying to achieve and why I’m working so hard.
What hamster wheel are you working on getting off and what reminder do you have that helps you stay on track and not give up?
