When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going

Last Update: September 27, 2013

Sometimes when the going gets tough, it is very easy to give up. It can be overwhelming, and you can feel like throwing your hands up and walking away. Sometimes we just need to take a step back, take a 10-15 minute breather and come back and look at the situation with a fresh pair of eyes.

I learned this the hard way today. After plugging away for hours at keywords, and getting nowhere -feeling frustrated and irritated-I finally decided to get up from behind the computer. I took a quick 15 minute break, collected my thoughts, and went back to the computer feeling refreshed.

I continued on with looking for some keywords so I could write my first three articles for my first three themes. Low and behold, I was able to find the keywords I needed for my articles in a short amount of time. I am glad that I stuck it out and finished it up. Now, tomorrow's day of work will be a lot easier. Instead of having to continue on with a search tomorrow, I can just get to the good stuff-writing my articles.

Are you one to give up and walk away when something gets tough, or are you going to march on and be strong?

Remember, when the going gets tough, the tough get going!

Kyle never promised it would be easy, and I didn't expect it to be. I had so many distractions in my house today that didn't make it easy to concentrate but I still pushed through. I think we all get to that point once in awhile. The important thing is to not give up. :-)

If it was easy there would be no challenge and no fun.
