When you feel like giving up ask yourself why
But not why you want to give up. I’m sure in that moment you’ll have a list full of reasons why giving up is the best and the only option.
Why did you start?
When you started working towards this particular goal, why did you do it? And most importantly – are you still doing it for the same reason?
For example: maybe you started a food blog with the first goal to post healthy and easy to make recipes to show people eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or time consuming. In the back of your mind you were, of course hoping to one day make a living out of this blog. Maybe not enough to quit your job, but enough to fund some crazy travel dream.
However, since starting the blog, you’ve become consumed with the last part – the money making. You are going to extremes with promoting your website, you are constantly on social media, constantly researching various options to monetize your blog. As a result, you are tired, you have no time to write articles, you lack ideas for the blog and it has gone from a passion something that drains you.
At this point you might want to quit. You are exhausted but are not even close to having thousands of views each day and are making 0$ from the blog. You probably feel it’s a waste of time and energy. Truth is, you lost focus. You forgot why you started. Sharing easy and healthy recipes has gone to the bottom of your to-do list.
