Few Things Are Worse Than Quitting Before You Win

Nobody wants regrets. If you stop now, you will have some. You will reach an age where you will look back and say f***, I could have made it if I didn’t stop.

It’s almost impossible to fail if you don’t stop. Don’t stop, you will find success. It may take 1 or 5 or 10 or 30 years, but you’ll never find out if you stop. You are guaranteed to fail if you stop. It’s just around the corner. Wait.

“Don’t stop until you get what you want.”

Stop blaming the world or blaming anything outside of you. You’ve got what it takes, you just need to make a choice.

Quick question, what do you want? What’s your intention? The Universe cannot deliver success to you if you have not set an intention. It’s real easy, choose an intention and get ready to be that, because doors are gonna open fast. And, another thing that’s frustrating is having lots of energy or passion but not having something CHOSEN to put it into.

Make small steps or goals towards your end goal. Taking on too much all at once is a recipe for failure.

Those times where you’re thinking, I should be productive right now are the key moments you need to train yourself to act. It’s easier if you allot a certain amount of time each day or week to working on your thing. Don’t beat yourself up if you’re being lazy, but realize you are in control. No one is stopping you from doing what you want except you.

But, what if what you’ve been working on isn’t enjoyable any longer? It’s okay to change your mind, it’s a free country. Choose something else instead, or take a break to reflect on what you really want to be doing. Ultimately, the goal is to wake up and be excited about your work.

You can achieve most things. If someone else has achieved something, so can you. And if what you’re doing doesn’t exist yet, even better! Keep going. Don’t stop. You’ve got this!
