So You've Had a Bad Day

Friday, February 01, 2013

Have you ever wondered why it isn't easier and just when will it be worth it? Change is hard & life has a way of throwing a monkey -wrench into the mix. Believe me,you are not alone-we all struggle & no one gets an easy pass. The key to hanging in there is our attitude.

That may sound "Pollyanna-ish"-but it's true. I use to think that the people who reached their goals
knew something I didn't & it was just easy for them....wrong.

At some point, we get to a part where we feel like giving up. Sometimes we give up before we even start and other times we give up just before we are about to make that huge break-through that we have been putting so much effort in to achieve.

Here are some excerpt from 22 Reasons Not To Never Give Up

Be Realistic~
The chance of mastering something the first time you do it is almost non-existent. Everything takes time to learn and you will make mistakes. Learn from them.

You Are Strong ~
You are stronger than you think. One little setback is not enough to stop you from achieving your goals. Neither are 10 or 100 or 1000 setbacks.

Prove Yourself
Go out there and prove yourself to the world and to yourself. You CAN and WILL achieve what you set out to do. The only time you fail is when you give up.

Has It Been Done Before?
If someone else can do it then so can you. Even if it is only one other person in the world that has achieved what you have set out to achieve, that should be reason enough for you to never give up.

Believe In Your Dreams
Donít sell yourself short. In life there are going to be many people who will try to bring you down and tell you what you want to achieve is not possible. Donít let anyone destroy your dreams.

You Deserve To Be Happy
Donít ever let anybody tell you otherwise. You deserve to be happy and you deserve to have success. Keep that mindset and never give up until you reach your destination

Inspire Others
Be an inspiration to others by refusing to give up. Who knows what someone else can achieve because you never gave up and in turn inspired them not to give up.

You Are So Close
Often when you feel like you want to give up and you are about to give up you are so close to making a huge break-thru.

Thanks for stopping by & KOKO-Keep On Keeping On.

    Awesome blog....I really believe that instead of looking forward at how far I still need to go that I look at how far I have come in just one short month keeps me motivated for the long haul.

Thank you so much for the motivation and inspiration. You are a gem!!!!!

    Thank you so much Sami, that was very inspirational! I like when things sound "PollyAnnish" because I consider myself sort of like that too! I also love the Lion in don't say Why Me, Just Try Me! Excellent! Also love the quotes - especially Inspire Others which is exactly what you are doing in your blogs......Kudos!!!!

    I have maintained my weight loss for two + years. Ups & downs? You betcha! Give up with the going gets tough? NEVAH! EVAH! EVAH!

The one huge, huge lesson I have learned on this ride into healthy is this: part of loving myself is not quitting! I'm worth it!

So are you!

HUGS and thanks for sharing this blog.
