Have you ever felt like quitting? Past your limits? When you just don't have any more bandwidth, can't work any harder and yet still it's not happening for you? Maybe you're running a small sandwich shop or a new restaurant or a carpet cleaning company. Or maybe you're social media consultant, aspiring speaker or run an ad agency? ;-)) Yes I too wake up often with that feeling. We all do.
It's tough because all around us we see pictures and stories of folks that are making it. And while the vast majority certainly earned it, the story that really gets you down is when you see the person who really isn't deserving -- and there are a good bit of those.
So what do you do? How do you push through until your day in the sun comes? Simple actually.
When you feel like saying "I quit" -- don't.
Do whatever you need to do -- take a run, have a drink or turn on the tunes really loud... but snap that funk and get your ass back in the game. Work harder, smarter and, if necessary, longer because luck finds he who earns it.
Oh and if you're wondering why I chose the picture of Eminem -- it's because when I feel like saying I quit -- I listen to Till I Collapse... sort of my "get off your ass Tom" anthem. Who knew I'd ever find inspiration in rap but seriously, good stuff.
So what about you? What do you do to push through abyss and find the other side? Let us know.
