I feel like quitting
I think this phrase is pretty well known for a lot of us. Including myself. The reason I want to write about this subject is, that I see a lot of people asking on different social media platforms, how to stay motivated and how to keep going because they have lost their motivation. It is a common problem that somebody starts out with something and somehow they just want to quit after a while. It is a pity.
Check your goals my friend
First of all, checking your goals is very important. What do I mean by checking your goals? I mean that you really need to go over your goals and try to ask yourself if it is really competitive enough. Are your goals really what you want to achieve in life? Is it a goal you came up yourself or did somebody else decide for you?
These are all reasons to check your goals. I think the biggest problem is the fact that a lot of people don’t know how great they are and what they can achieve if they just believed in themselves. This is the main reason why a lot of people set super low goals. They know that they can achieve it. What will happen is that they will lose motivation after some time. Don’t be afraid to challenge yourself. If you are one of these people, really try to come up with a new more challenging goal.
If you set goals that are far beyond your imagination, but you really believe that you can do it, you will feel a lot more energy even when you feel like you want to quit.
I had this problem for a long time. I did not know what I wanted, but deep down inside of me something said that I needed to try new things and believe in my own ability. After this period, I started believing more in myself and because of this, I set some pretty awesome goals for myself. Starting my blog was also one of my goals.
Check your goals and believe in your goals.
Find yourself a mentor
I can’t say this enough. It is really important to know somebody who has already achieved what you are trying to achieve. If you know somebody who has been doing the job you want to do after you are done with college, go talk to him and ask him new things you want to learn. If you feel comfortable with learning new things from him then it is your chance to ask him or her if he or she want to become your mentor.
Now the question is: “What has this to do with this subject?”. The answer to that is pretty simple. If you really want to grow in what you do and you are really dedicated, you will need somebody that learns you new things. Everybody needs somebody who gives advice. You will become more interested in your goals and you will know what you need to do next in order to become what you want to become.
A mentor is also somebody that you can tell something that has happened and ask him for advice. This way you will keep learning. Keep interested in your subject, that is what you want. This will keep you going.
Part of the process
There are a lot of people who want to give up when something does not go the way they wanted it to go. This is very wrong. Life is something interesting. Sometimes it will go very smoothly and sometimes it will feel like nothing is going well.
If you really want to achieve things in life, you need to believe in the fact that you are going to achieve your goals. Being able to tell yourself that you need to go on no matter what is really difficult, but really important when it comes to moving on when everything seems the go the opposite direction.
Getting this feeling is normal. I have this issue from time to time and it really bothers me. It is a part of the journey. It can be that simple. I admit it can be so hard sometimes, but you need to keep telling yourself that you need to survive this in order to achieve your goals.
Everybody has a point where he or she thinks that quitting is the best option. In order to overcome this, you need to check your goals first. Are they really big enough and are they really challenging enough? Believe in yourself and try to set up some big goals that keep you going, because they are challenging.
Find somebody you can ask questions. I am talking about a mentor. Find somebody who has already achieved your goal. This way you will keep learning new things from this person and it will keep you excited to achieve this goal no matter what.
Everything that you learn during this journey is a part of the process in order to get what you want. Trust this process and suddenly everything starts becoming easier for you.
