I know how hard it can be to keep going even though you're tired, stressed and want to give up and do something easier. We've all been there. Whether it's with work, relationships, or even ourselves. We've all faced that moment where we asked ourselves "Do I give up or keep going?"
In the two and a half years since I since HeyGiud I've asked myself that question more times than I care to remember. Whether it was "If I got a 'real' job I wouldn't have to [fill in the blank with any struggle you can imagine]?"
I have always answered the BIG question with 'KEEP GOING!' Yes, it's in all caps when I hear it in my head too. I love what I do, even on the days I've got more on my plate than I think I can handle and really just want to be able to take some time to breathe, not think about work, and feel a sense of calm because someone else is making sure things happen.
Why do I keep going when all I want is a nap or a vacation or to not have to make sure all of the plates are spinning properly? Because there is nothing else I'd rather do. I love my job. I love my clients. I love the challenges that this life has thrown at me. I never in my life imagined being an entrepreneur and now I can't imagine my life any different, even when I'm eating ramen noodles and peanut butter sandwiches as my steady diet. This is what I was born to do.
So, what makes you keep going when all you want to do is give up?
