Why Are You Holding On?
business, mindset, your why

 VISIT WEBSITE (learn more)

It's quite daunting sometimes when I hear stories of people shutting the door against their business. I mean, what was really on their mind when they got started in the first place?

Was it...

Quick fix? Greed? Financial freedom? To travel the world? (There are loads of reasons why people get into business).

It's important to know that what ever we do in life, we should hold ourselves accountable for it; whether it comes out good or bad.

Now to the real reason I'm putting this up...

There are people who have been in business for a while, and have stuck on, even when nothing tangible has come up. One would have thought that they would give up and throw in the towel.

But they haven't... now they could be a lot of reasons for this.

I'll only touch on a few of them.

- It could be that they truly believe in what they are doing, and know that they'll make it in due time.
- It could be that they are ashamed of what people will say if they quit. Especially family & friends.
- It could be that they have a very strong WHY, and quitting is never an option.
- It could be that they are holding on, and hoping that a miracle will happen.

From the list I have given above, I believe it's easy to relate with one of them.

So, ask yourself again... why are you holding on? What's your WHY?

To your unwavering success,

Thanks Ally and Ced. We have to really know why we are doing what we're doing. It's our choice, and we have to live with it.

I have a huge why and won't be quitting. I use the most powerful motivator to keep me focused. Some people might quit because they aren't using a powerful motivator, their why maybe isn't powerful enough to drive them. Thank you for sharing this thought provoking info. Ally.

Does make you think. We quickly find out what we thought we meant when trouble shows up at our door. Stated belief and actual belief look the same until reality sets in. Nice post Otoabasi.

A great piece of information to get people thinking. Thank you. Ally.

That's right Michael. It's best to find what we know will be a good fit for us, rather than go with the crowd, and then end up finding who to blame. The decision to get involved in anything should be ours, not someone else's.
