You’ve tried and tried and tried. Now what? Should you throw in the towel, let it go and move on? Is it finally time to quit? This question has probably crossed your mind a time or two. Or you may be at a crossroads in your business right now contemplating your next move. No matter what you may be facing, I’ve learned that it takes courage to get started and it takes courage to keep going. You may be thinking that it’s so much easier to quit but before you do, I want to share what I learned from a bird during a camping trip.
I sat enjoying the light summer breeze, when I noticed a bird flying above. I reached for my iPad to take a photo but before I could the bird disappeared. I tried at least three times to capture the photo before thinking about giving up. Each time I tried to snap the picture the bird seemed to disappear. I was about to quit and move on to my next adventure when I realized that I couldn’t get taking this picture out of my head.
There were three things I had to be willing to do to capture this photo.
- Move and change positions so I could get a better view. (Thought to ponder: What you want may be hidden from your view so move and change positions.)
- Act on what I desired. (Thought to ponder: If you’re not willing to take action, you’ll miss every opportunity that comes your way. Nothing changes without action.)
- Keep trying.
As long as an idea, a dream, or a goal lives in your heart, don’t give up. Keep trying. As long as that fire is burning in your belly don’t give up. Keep trying because eventually what seemed impossible will become a reality. If it matters to you find a way to make it happen!
Will there be challenges? Yes.
Will it be difficult at times? Maybe.
Will it be worth it in the end? Absolutely.
