How to push through when it “sucks”.
Today, we are going to discuss what tricks you can use to remotivate yourself when things are not going your way and you feel like you won't see the end of the tunnel.
I want that to bring value to people. Okay. So this is what I'm working on. And I'm putting in my hours. So I've been shooting videos for the last two weeks because you have to create videos for it, like the funnels in all that stuff. And also you have to shoot the videos for the actual training and everything. Right. So that's actually my point for today.
So I want for you guys to think about these situations where you have something you're doing, like a task that you need to finish. And every day you feel like you're going to see the end of the tunnel, but you don't. It just never ends. Man, you're like, dude. When am I going to finish this? I thought it was going to take like a few days, like a one day.
Hopefully this was going to take me one day like two weeks ago something or three weeks ago. I was very optimistic. So, yes, I'm sure that you might have been in this situation where, I mean, this task is like never ending. And very often you're tempted to just give up, right.
I'm going to tell you how it is for me, why I'm still in there and why I'm still working on this stuff. So first reason is that I know because I've seen the results. I know this is going to bring a lot of value to people. Right. This is going to change people's lives. And for this reason, I'm like, well, dude, you know what? It's worth it.
It's worth putting in the time because, you know, you'll be able to help a lot of people with this stuff. OK. So that's one of the reasons that's driving me. That's one thing that can drive you to keep pushing through until you've finished this thing.
Second thing is that already started, man. That's the thing. You know, I told you one of the hardest things is to finish a task. You know, you need to put the last nail in the coffin. It’s very difficult. I keep telling myself, dude, you've already started it. You know, that's the hardest part. So keep going!!
How to push through when it “sucks”
Because the biggest hurdle and the biggest wall where let’s say you had 100 people and you had to face the first obstacle. You might lose maybe like 80 people right there at the start. So you are already in the top 20 percent. Just keep going, man. You know, the hardest thing was to start this thing. Right. So that's the second thing I tell myself.
The third thing I will tell myself is remember the “why”. You know, we talked about the. Why. Why you're doing stuff. There's a reason why you're putting in the hours and why you why you're doing all this research.
When things get hard, you know that your “why” is going to give you your direction, because it's very easy to be driven when everything is fine. But when things get bad and life kicks you, you remember why you’re doing it and that will push you through.
And yeah, these are the things that are driving me right now to finish it. And it will be worth it. It's always worth it. I'll keep pushing through no matter what.
