I tend to be a very optimistic person but even at times I have needed a calm fire put under by back side to get me moving on. I read a book several years back by Charles Swindoll titled Three Steps Forward, Two Steps Back. It helped me to understand that life can be a bummer at times (I knew this already.) and that I just have to bend with the wind and keep going. That is what I do. I may fall back but I keep going. This allows me to gain success in my life and my business.
Even if that forward movement is only an inch at a time.
I certainly, like everyone else, feel like throwing my hands up sometimes and quitting. One of the helpful things that I do when this happens to me is to walk away, clear my head and give myself some time to think through what it is that I personally want out of my life and my business. I am not quitting. I am merely meditating upon my own beliefs and actions.
Something else that I find that helps me is to stay tuned-in with my business. Even at my worst times I continue to be on conference calls, webinars and whatever else is offered by the company I am affiliated with. This helps me to clear my thoughts of being down because things aren't going exactly the way I want them to go. I don't quit being involved.
My faith plays a major role in everything that I do. I know that if I keep moving forward and believing that I am where I am suppose to be that soon I will turn that corner and be on a clear path to the finish line.
When you feel like that you just can't take another step toward what you really want for your life and business then take a tiny one inch step and keep going. You will reach whatever it is you desire for yourself. Believe it!
