Are you currently in the stage where you are ready to give up on your business?
My suggestion: Not just Yet.
Not until you have finished reading this post on 3 Feet from Gold.
3 Feet from Gold is a story that has kept me inspired over the years. It is a tale that has kept me going on as an entrepreneur, especially during challenging times. As with many business owners, my journey has not always been that smooth. I have been through feast-famine cycles and everything in between.
“Before success comes in anyone’s life, that individual is sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps, some failure. When defeat overtakes a person, the easiest and most logical thing to do is to QUIT. That is exactly what the majority of people do.” Think and Grow Rich, Napoloen Hill
I hope to share with you what has helped me all this time, if you have not heard this story or read the classic Think and Grow Rich book. The entrepreneurial mindset of not giving up has kept me in the game. It has helped me build tenacity even when times are difficult.
You could feel as if you are ready to quit for a combination of reasons….
1. Things are not up to your expectations.
2. No one showing up for your mega launch.
3. No one is viewing your FB lives.
4. Things failing to work on schedule.
5. And the deal breaker: you have been giving away resources and tips for free and you are not generating the response that you are hoping for.
That feeling of disappointment, the frustration, the overwhelm…..and then comparing your progress to someone else who is far more successful than you are.
You wonder if perhaps you are not made for entrepreneurship, that perhaps you don’t have what it takes and that you don’t have that magic Midas touch.
So if this has been going on for some time….you could be feeling exhausted, frustrated and beaten.
