…..it does happen.
Burnout is one of the causes of failure, of quitting.
And why not?
Life is too short.
As I pointed out last week with the loss of a friend, it got me to thinking about the power of Gratitude.
And how although it is tough building your own business, the people you meet along the way are simply amazing.
But sometimes you feel like you are on your own.
You feel at a loss, and internalize your burdens.
…… especially when no one in your family or circle of personal friends seems to ‘get it’.
And when you can’t make a profit to save your life, you figure why beat yourself up any longer?
Why are you doing this?
In fact, that is THE million dollar question.
If you haven’t heard it by now, you should know that if your ‘Why’ isn’t strong enough you won’t make it.
And THIS is WHY.
When you feel you have tried EVERYTHING, or that you’ve run out of resources, mentally and emotionally exhausted, and getting no support from your inner circle, unless you have a VERY strong reason to find a way to succeed…..
….. you simply wont.
It is a well formed and understood WHY that you have INTERNALIZED into your subconscious of your mind, that governs your actions without even thinking about it that keeps you going against all odds, challenges and perceived barriers……
…. that keeps you from eventually just giving up and giving in… quitting….
This past week I’ve had to regroup, and refocus, after the loss of my friend.
Even when I decided to honor her and send an email about one of her favorite mantras, the power of Gratitude, not just one, but TWO people on my list marked that message as Spam or Junk.
I had not even included a link to so much as my blog!
But I merely pointed out that an attitude of Gratitude goes a long way toward your having a positive mindset and being able to foster your own success.
Did it hurt that someone marked this message as spam?
Did it make me want to give up?
Not quite. My reasons for working 80 hours perÂ week between my full time job and my business have long since been internalized so I never think this is TOO hard.
Yes it’s difficult sometimes, YES it is frustrating but I AM making progress, and SO ARE YOU.
Even though you may not be making money yet, YOU HAVE LEARNED a thing or two, right?
So here it is…….
Ask yourself : Have you talked to anyone about your business this week?
If not, then why not? Do you have a method for capturing leads?
If not then what can you do to put that in place, or how much are you networking, online OR Offline?
Are you not getting at least one in ten people to say yes to you?
If not then perhaps there are some communication skills or your belief level that you can work on.
I can help you in either of these areas, and as you may realize, beyond that into building an online presence and funnel framework for yourself.
If these are your sticking points then it’s up to you to decide if your ‘Why’ is strong enough to carry you through the actions necessary to grow your business.
… to reach out to someone who can help, whether
that be myself or someone else…..
And if you have no vehicle for making money, please contact me as I am sure I have something that can create your financial vehicle.
