Do You Feel Like Giving Up?

Last Update: July 24, 2016


Hello my WA friends and followers:

I have to admit I have been feeling discouraged lately, I don’t really know why because things seem to be going well. I wake some mornings and do not feel the same energy I once had to work. I don’t think this is laziness, sometimes I just feel helpless.

If you know me, I am usually full of energy and a wonderful wisdom to continue my great career. I guess I just wanted to let anyone who feels this discouragement to know this does happen to all of us, even if we are successful. Well, we all have our dark moments and think about throwing in the towel, losing our motivation for a while. I guess this is human nature, but it surely makes one feel alone and let down in oneself.

Sometimes I too feel jealous of others that are more successful than I, and this is such a negative emotion! Please turn this jealousy into inspiration, because they are no better than you, nor do they work harder. I tell myself that we all get our success wings at different times in our careers. We will all have our wings, but what if we quit at the instance before our wings were in place. Quitting the moment when we were beginning to fly. This would be such a sad thing to know, but we don’t know when this success will come, we just have to work hard and keep the faith. No one will believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself.

Remember always that your mind is your most wonderful asset geared for your success in your business. Sometimes the mind gets tired and will destroy your awesome work ethic.

Every entrepreneur feels all of these emotions at some time. Success is really the determination to keep working even if you feel failure. You have to make yourself be busy and steady, yes even when you don’t feel like it. Do you think our founders and ambassadors or elders at Wealthy Affiliate have never had dark moments? Well I can assure you they have, but they never gave up, they welcomed their wings and continued to pass on that inspiration within them. So, as a reward their success will only fly and grow stronger. They stomp on SELF DOUBT, and are filled with patience and willpower.

Why am I writing this blog? Well, I found myself feeling down on my own success because I wasn’t getting a big enough taste of it. You have to believe in the opportunity we call success, yes without tasting it. This is why we do what we do, why we are the type of individuals who can make the magic happen in our own lives. We can build a successful business, we have the most wonderful training and foundation we can find, right here within this community of like-minded helpful people! I guess I am telling myself and all of you that I cherish as friends, DON’T GIVE UP, I can see your wings even if you can’t! Fly strong and steady, I will be right beside you on this journey! Wishing you all the very best of luck and much success!

You are so right, we all do feel like that at times. But we don't ever give up, which is what it is all about. I love your analogy of wings, I will remember that one. Many thanks for your post :)

I find myself getting jealous sometimes too, and I then stop and realize it. Then I say to myself, I wish to move past this, thereby admitting it to myself, acknowledging it. Then it soon passes and I can continue in a positive mental frame. I believe creativity flourishes in positivity and stimulates new ideas. Thanks for sharing your positive message.

I've noticed that when we relate anything to success we must accept the bad with the good like they're mandatory to happen like a natural formula.

I believe for every fail, negative experience, and slow process there is an opposite effect for a future encounter that will happen.

This means in the future the fail will turn into a success, the negative will convert into a positive and the slow process will become the fast lane.

I've also noticed that we tend to not get what we want in life instead we seem to attract what we are.

This logic suggests that the more we become internet Marketers and online business owners means the more successful results will manifest as we enter the paradigm that will attract the results we want by being what we are if that makes sense.

Your situation is understandable especially by feeling Jealous at times while lacking the motives to keep progressing.

What is happening with you? You've been working hard with little results in return that has burned you out. The Jealousy feelings you experience is your envy emotion becoming impatient due to your burn out.

I suggest taking 10 days off to refresh and focus on other things, this will help you come back more relaxed and will also remove the burned out situation you're currently in.

I burned out myself before and experienced the same situation So I took 14 days off and came back more motivated and ready to go.

My "Challenge" has been trying to put a time frame on everything I do. Very often that is more harmful than helpful. I now view this as a day to day adventure and a journey, not a destination. Seems to be working for me.

All the best,

Steve
