When your mind tells you it is time to stop, how do you keep pushing forward? Your mind is a powerful tool and has the ability to keep pushing you forward or completely shut you down. Successful people have the ability to keep pushing through when times get tough. Even though your mind might be telling you it is time to throw in the towel, successful people find the will to keep going. This can be extremely hard to do especially when you are not seeing the results you want day after day.
There are days you have to just go through the motions in order to stay on track. Other times, your mind might be telling you it is time for a little break. It is very likely you may need to recharge. You get so wrapped up in the day to day projects, you can get burned out. If you are burned out, you will lose your creative flow. Break the routine to find different results.
Take a step back and reevaluate what you are trying to accomplish. If you are too emotionally connected at all times, you may be missing key elements that can advance your efforts in a significant way. Have passion for what you are doing but don’t be too emotionally caught up. Emotions may cause you to make bad decisions.
The key is not to give up. You may have to change courses a bit but keep moving forward. This is the most challenging stage. You get tired, your not seeing results, and you are completely frustrated. This is where the majority of people give up. It’s those people who understand the process, know how to re-evaluate their actions, and go after it at a different angle. It’s possible that just a couple of small tweaks is all your really needed. Those people who gave up, will never know.
