Do you ever want to give up and quit?
Crithicca, co-host of the Motiversity podcast, recently asked me this question.
My response was instantaneous:
“Every single week.”
You see, every single week I have my fair share of doubts… the nights of questioning what the heck I’m even doing.
But here’s what I’ve learned: the doubt and the challenges don’t go away… we just get more resilient the longer we keep going.
It’s like going to the gym, right? The weights don’t get lighter, we just get stronger.
When I was asked by Joel (founder, CEO, and the other co-host of the Motiversity podcast) what I thought led to my success in business, I told him that I believed it was a combination of two main things.
First, building trust through years of freely serving my audience, and second, the promise, value, and timing of my offer (Social Curator).
But success rarely comes from just one or two things… it also comes from things like learning to overcome the fear of rejection, knowing which questions to ask to get results, and staying disciplined with daily habits in order to maximize productivity.
