How many times does things become too much to bare or deal with? The moments where everything seems to go wrong at the wrong time. It makes you question the reason why you continue to even do it. When I say “it”, it can be anything. It can be life. It can be getting use to being a new mom. It can be starting a new business. It can be ANYTHING.
The one thing I always try to remember is without challenges or obstacles the progression you seek will be all in vain. I say this because how is that going to make you greater, getting everything you want with out the work? If that happens you will always think things come easy. Sometimes you have to stop and reflect on all the things you did right. See where you came from. Embrace the changes you went through. Acknowledge how much you pushed your self. Then tell you self there is more to come.
I currently on a job search in which I feel that there is no avail. I have looked everywhere to do anything and still got nothing. On a daily basis I get in this funk because I feel like I should be working and doing working girl things. Sometimes the day is so bad. For example, It was one day I applied to like literally 15 jobs. I put my resume out there and got about 3 maybe 4 responses back. I was excited and felt good . I was like one of these interviews I am going to come out with something. I prepped myself that week. I felt good. I did my interviews and I didn’t get not one job. I was do disappointed. I didn’t know what I was doing wrong. I was ready to give up when somebody I know showed me that I started out getting no interviews to getting 3 or 4 of them. So I thought about what he said and he was right. I put work into fixing my resume, adding and taking out things that might help it look better. I created a lot job specific cover letters and all. I did a lot of work and I was not about to let that work fall below the waist side.
So I tell you that story to say this. Sometimes we don’t know how close we are to the thing we have been working so hard to get. Don’t give up just stop, give your self a pat on your back for making it this far, and keep working.
