I Can't Give Up And I Won't

Last Update: July 22, 2017

Hello everyone! It has been a minute since I have written anything, even a single post on my own site. I took a break from Wealthy Affiliate for a few weeks for some reasons that I won't discuss and when I came back I felt like a big block was in my head and I didn't know what to write about, what to say, what I even wanted to research?

I felt discouraged. I felt down and unmotivated about the whole process of my business and Wealthy Affiliate in general. Then some more things came up and that led to some more feelings of quitting all together. I was just done. I thought to myself that maybe I wasn't meant for this type of work after all. Maybe I didn't have what it took, I wasn't smart enough, and I didn't have the keenness to really make money and pull people in. I'm great with people face to face. I can talk and meet people all day long, but I am the first person to tell you right here and now that I am struggling!!

Then it hit me as I began reading through some of my motivation images one day and reading through other people's blogs and just trying to do things to motivate myself again, that if I quit, I am doing what everybody is telling me to do.

There's a saying that I absolutely love that goes:

"At first they'll ask you why your doing it? Then they'll ask you how you did it?"

So I chose to listen to this and continue on. I am here with all of you, who have chosen to stay and fight for what you believe in! I can't be the one to give up while your all sitting here working your butts off. I too am going to work my butt off with you!!

Thank you my friends for all your help to show me the way sometimes! I need that boost that I find in ya'lls posts and blogs! I need that surety to know this is for real and I can do this!

To all of my friends,

Misty

Aah, Misty. I hear you. I also have these doubts rise up from nowhere from time to time and, like you, I WILL NOT QUIT. So glad you found your way out of your discouragement. Let's do this Sister!!

It's definitely not going to be an easy ride and you'll definitely have moments when it just becomes nearly impossible to write anything or have the motivation to continue. Trust me, I've had my fair share of both, but you've got to take into account the successes you've already achieved and use that as motivation to keep moving forward. I may not be making the livable income I'm always dreaming about right now, but I'm slowly but surely heading in that direction even if it's just a little bit of revenue I'm earning from AdSense as well as a couple of Affiliate Sales. Just don't ever give up and you've already said to yourself that you won't. I won't either.

You can do it!! Reminds me of a song ...
Some days are diamonds, some days are stones
Sometimes the hard times won't leave me alone
Sometimes a cold wind blows a chill in my bones
Some days are diamonds, some days are stones

Misty,
Good decision just follow your passion and dreams. Everybody who succeeds in anything goes through times of discouragement and even suffering disasters at times.
Thomas Edison fell short a number of times. If he quit we wouldn't have electricity today. So never quit you will be successful also.

Way to go, Misty! Believe me when I say we all struggle at times. And I expect to struggle in the future. It is what it is.

I had major surgery in 2006 that put me out of business. I could barely work my job let alone my online business. It took almost 18 months to have the strength and motivation to start up my online business again. I could have just given up on my dream. But I didn't. I started up again, built new websites.

Keep chugging along! Some days that's exactly how it feels, but it's movement. And it's movement in the right direction. "Dreams don't work unless you do." It's so hard to be patient when we know exactly what it is we want and are working towards. But when it comes it will be that much sweeter! Chin up, chick!

Hi Misty

So glad u have decided to stay. I know the feeling of being down and waiting for something to happen or to take off but it does take a little time. As long as u are actively doing something related to your site u are making progress. It could be helping others, working on your site, asking questions, responding to people, etc. Slow progress is progress none the less and it will get u closer to your goals. I wish u great spirits and well being and may u feel more motivated. We are all here to help u if u need it. Just ask. :)

Hey there Misty, heres a quote I have writing on my wall that keeps me going every time I want to quit.

"You've come too far to only come this far.
Yup its hard, yup its difficult but if you quit right now, you will never see your goals turn into reality"

I know I am a stranger to you, but I'd hate to see anyone give up on their dreams! welcome back to the GRIND and Best of luck on your journey! :)

Hi Misty

In order to succeed in this business you need to listen to the the people who are doing it with you.

I don't really talk about this with family or friends as they simply don't understand.

I totally get how you've been feeling and I am glad you've stayed.

Good luck and best wishes

Darren

Yes I totally get that! My husband does not get it nor does he agree with it! I don't let him get me down too much, but it's just discouraging when I'm not seeing results day after day. BUT....it will come!! I have only been here 2 months and I know it takes some time for things to kick off! I have a good site and my traffic is picking up, so I just need to stay as positive as possible! Thank you for your comment!!

Hi misty

Your welcome. I've had bricks and mortar businesses and like online ones they all need time to grow and creep up the rankings aswell.

It's nice to have support of your partners but my partner doesn't really understand what I do she is interested in signing up one day though.

Just believe in yourself as you have everyone here that also believes in you

Thank you so much! That truly means a lot! If I left here tomorrow (don't worry, I'm not) one thing I'd for sure miss is this community and the friends I've made! You all are such amazing and genuine people! Thank you so much for what you do!

Misty!
