How To Avoid Giving Up When The Going Gets Tough

Spending lazy afternoons on the beach with mini me!

It's been an interesting time here at VP HQ. There's been the joy of moving to Brighton (pictured above), one of my fave places in the world.

I then slipped a disk in my back which has left me in extreme amounts of pain and virtually unable to walk for over a month.

The icing on the cake came last weekend when my son Eaton had a accident which resulted in him needing surgery.

This meant that I had to postpone the Inspired to Greatness Social Soiree at the very last minute! (Thank you SO much everyone for your understanding and lovely messages of support.) 

There's no doubt that it's been an exceptionally challenging time...And it got me thinking... what a perfect metaphor this is for the entrepreneurial journey.

So often when the going gets tough in our personal life the important things in our business get sidelined. We get caught up in the excuses of why we can't do something.

Often these challenges present themselves as the perfect (and totally believable) reason for us to stop. Which keeps us exactly where we are, tucked up nice and warm in our comfort zone!

“I don’t have enough time”

“I don’t have the money to invest”

“I can’t do that, it's not the right time”

... and on and on it goes.

There will be moments when the shizzle hits the fan in a BIG way. Everything seems to be going wrong. It can feel like wading through glue.

It's those moments when you appear to be caught in an unrelenting storm - perhaps you begin to doubt yourself, your abilities, and the viability of your business.

Just remember, strength grows in the moments when you think you can't go on but you keep going anyway. Be mindful not to stay in a cycle that isn't bringing you results. Don't let challenges turn into excuses for you to stay stuck. If you hate where you're at, if it isn't working - DO SOMETHING - CHANGE IT!

There is an answer to every struggle you're currently experiencing. You've just gotta open your eyes to the opportunities that are in front of you and find a solution to that struggle. Don't shrink to fit the challenge. Stretch into a new, more expanded way of being.

Hold on to your WHY. Hold tightly to your vision. Believe in your dream. Don't give up or quit before you reach the finishing line. Take action and keep moving ahead one step at a time.

Cast yourself forward into the future. Be there now. BE the woman who is living your dream life in this moment. Be, do, feel and decide from that standpoint. This will carry you through to your solution...and all that you're meant for.
