Ever got that feeling where you just want to quit everything? Your job, your life. Everything. Well, you’re not alone. We’ve all been there. We’ve all had that feeling of not wanting to continue with something. But quitting won’t solve the problem. It’s a fix for a feeling that is temporary. You won’t always feel like this. You will have bad days, but it’s how you get through them that’s important.
If you feel like quitting then here’s a few things to think about…
Remember why you’re doing this
When things get tough and you feel like quitting, remember why you’re doing this. What will gain from this? How will it improve things? Focus on your first thought processes and why you chose to do this. That way, you’ll find the strength and inspiration to carry on.
New things ARE scary
Of course the uncertainty of new things can be scary, but that doesn’t mean you should quit. Coming out of your comfort zone to invest time in something new can be a challenge, but it will be worth it.
Focus on the end result
Remember why you are doing this. Think about that end result and how much it means to you, or how much your life will improve. That’s what you should be focusing on when you feel like quitting.
A bad start doesn’t mean a poor finish
If you had a bad start to your goal, then don’t rule it out. Just because the beginning was tough, that doesn’t necessarily mean the rest will be bad. If you carry on with that mindset, you will most likely fail because you’ve already set your mind to do so.
Nobody is going to believe in your abilities more than yourself, so make sure you give yourself some credit! Think about everything you have already achieved and how you can achieve this too.
There’s been so many times where I’ve felt like quitting. Like when I moved away from home and my comforts. I wanted to run back to my mam and dad and forget everything I’d worked so hard to achieve. But then I remembered why I did it in the first place – because it was my dream, and now staying was the best decision I ever made.
