Giving Up is Not an Option for Winners

giving up is not a option One of the things that I firmly believe is that most people would be successful if they just gave it enough time. However, what I see online is that many people expect an overnight million-dollar payday because of everything they hear from the online gurus. The thing you have to remember is that starting a business is not going to be an overnight success for most people. People who are truly successful over the long haul are the same ones who are willing to persevere through failure, flops and hard times.

 The more you fail, the closer you are to success. With each and every failure, the more you are learning about how not to do things. You have to be willing to fail in order to succeed. You have to be willing to try everything and just keep pushing through until you reach your final destination. You have to be willing to put up with all the crap, lots of working hours, lots of brainstorming and a long list of tasks that need to be done.

 There are people in the world who are simply not meant to be business owners or entrepreneurs. These are the people who are perfectly happy generating their “stable” income from someone else. These are the same people who have no problem lining the pockets of their employer rather than building their own business for the future. That’s okay because every business needs workers. You have to really think through whether or not you are the type of person who is able to withstand all of the possible failure and upset that comes along with building your own business.

 It’s so easy to say don’t give up when you’re not the person who is experiencing hard times. However, what is your choice really? If you give up, you have let go of any chance that you’re going to be successful. If you drop everything after working so hard and just walk away, you have to make sure that it’s really the right thing to do. Emotions have no place in business, but they often end up right in the middle of it. In business and in life we really have two choices: to give the up or to persevere.

 So how do you make sure that you never give up when things get tough? The first thing you have to make certain of is that you have a clear set of goals and aspirations that motivate you when times are hard. This might mean creating your own vision board or some kind of a journal where you keep a list of all the things you want to achieve. Some people use pictures of their children or items that they want to purchase once they are successful. Find whatever motivates you so that you can use it during the times of stress and struggle.

 Another way to persevere through tough times is by having the group that you can interact with and share your journey. This might be some kind of a mastermind group or even just a few close friends who are trying to build their businesses as well. Don’t try to do everything on your own because you need an outlet where you can share your concerns and problems. Often times, you will find that brainstorming with other people leads you out of these negative areas a lot quicker. Be mindful to only mastermind with positive people and not negative individuals who will only bring you down, however.

 The key to never giving up is remembering that there is always hope and always the possibility of success being just around the corner. You have to push through even when you think it’s all for naught.
