Life Got Tough. So Tough it Derailed My Progress.
Have you ever been super excited about how much progress you were making on your website? Then life happens and everything comes to a screeching halt. What do you do? How do you respond?
Well, last month (August), I had my most productive month this year. I was on a roll. I was posting an article almost every day. I started making YouTube videos. I started pinning on Pintrest. I even did what I most dreaded - I set up a Facebook business page. Even better, I was able to make time to exercise at least an hour each day.
Life was good. I felt productive.
Then bam...... On August 29, life happened. For about a week, my challenges kept compounding. Some seemed trivial. Others were not. I had a wreck, my dog ended up in doggy jail, I lost water to my bathroom so I couldn't shower, I had a flat tire while borrowing a friend's vehicle, then I lost his keys. The list of challenges kept mounting. So many not so good things happened that I prefer not to think about all the bad things that I faced in the course of a week.
At the same time, I know that I was blessed because things could have been MUCH worse.
Yet, all my progress came to a screeching halt. I think I have only written one post since that day. I haven't even had time to exercise once. I feel like my horse bucked me off.
Well, as of today. I have stood up. I have dusted the dirt off my rear end. I am going to climb back on the horse. I will not let it, nor life defeat me. I refuse to give up. If I was able to have a super successful August, there is no reason that I can't do it again.
If you have fallen off your proverbial horse, I encourage you to get back up. Dust yourself off. Understand that it is a normal part of the process. Refuse to give up. If so, I promise that your enthusiasm will return. I mean, our enthusiasm will return.
Even Grace (Little Mama), one of the people that made it to Vegas last year, said that when the going gets tough, you've got to get tougher. If you haven't seen it already, check out her training, Littlemama's Road to Vegas Training Video #1. When the going got tough, she refused to give up. As result, she has achieved a lot of success and a very nice income stream from affiliate marketing.
Get Tough. Refuse to Give Up.
