Sometimes we’re making killer progress.
Everything’s running smoothly.
Everyday we’re taking steps forward.
Improving our health.
Paying down debt.
Learning new skills and concepts.
Really crushing it.
The feeling of forward momentum is so satisfying.
Other times, progress is a grind.
It seems like we’re moving so slowly.
We really have to hunker down.
Do the work.
Day in and day out.
Barely moving along.
This is still satisfying, if not even more so than when things come more easily.
Yet, there are those times when nothing’s happening at all.
We feel like we’re putting in so much time and energy.
But we’re going nowhere.
We’re not seeing the results we’d like.
Our labor is fruitless.
It’s really tempting to throw in the towel.
In situations like this, we want to quit.
Not because the goal no longer matters to us.
But because we’re frustrated.
Because we’re worn down.
Quitting is not our only option when this happens.
You might not be making progress.
You might not know your next steps.
You might feel stuck.
You’re not stuck.
You’ve just stopped.
It’s a matter of time, effort, and awareness.
Keep showing up.
Adjust your strategy as necessary.
You’ll get moving forward again.
This kind of persistence isn’t easy.
It isn’t fun.
It takes time.
It takes hard work.
It takes humility.
But if the goal is worth it, so is the effort.
You are worthy of the best life.
The kind of life that doesn’t come without a fight.
You are worthy of that kind of life.
You’ve got this.
