HOW TO NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR GOALS AND DREAMS AGAIN

Published

on

Never Give Up On Your Goals and Dreams

If you’re seeking some inspiration or resources to help you never give up on your goals or dreams, then this page is for you. With that said, have you ever known someone who made up their mind to finally get going on a big project, goal, or dream, but shortly after starting, they quit?

You know the scenario, the one where that friend of yours gets started on a pursuit with massive zeal.  But then you learn that just a few months into their endeavor, they lose all their steam, and give up their dream.

The scenario where everything seemed to be going well for them, like their success was just around the corner, but then, they gave up too soon.

For instance…

The Side-Hustler

We’ve all had a friend who finally decided to do something ambitious, like start a side-hustle.  They’ve been talking about these books they’ve been reading, like ‘The 4 Hour Work Week’, or the “Side-Hustle’, and how in just 4 weeks they’d be up and running with a successful business, positioned to quit their day-job, and primed to ride off into the sunset of success.

But those four weeks quickly pass, and their endeavors have yet to become a soaring success.   But your friend is determined, so they stick it out for four, five, and maybe even six more months.  Unfortunately, they finally realize the struggle is too much, and say to themselves, “I am not seeing any progress, and this is just to freaking hard for zero to little progress?” 

Then they begin to tell you all about how maybe their side-hustle thing isn’t really what they wanted to do.  So they give up, they quit, and their dream dies.

The Fitness Fizzle

Or perhaps you had a friend who finally said to themselves, “That it’s, I am going to turn this flabby body of mine into something lean!  And by the end of next year, I am going to be a lean mean physically fit machine!”

Then they get to chasing their fitness goal, and they stay the course for four, maybe five months.  But then, out of the blue, they tell you about how their discipline started to drift, how they are losing focus, their fire, and slowly, their desire to obtain that dream body they’ve always wanted.

The Writer

Don’t even get me started on the aspiring author.  Everybody and their mom wants to write a book someday.  And the crazy thing is, most people get started on writing their book.  They open up Microsoft Word, and start typing away for a few days.  They even create a few good chapters, but then, after a few weeks of being in the weeds of authorship, the ideas start to slow, and the pangs of creativity start to kick in.  Each page starts to feel like pulling teeth just to put together.  And then just like that, the dream of becoming a writer takes a vacation, with a one-way ticket back to “someday isle.”

The Common Tragedy

I know… it’s tragic.  But this is not an uncommon scenario.  It happens all the time.   It is truly a modern-day tragedy that is all too common. And it doesn’t just happen for authors, artists, and entrepreneurs.  It happens to people seeking higher fitness levels, it happens to people seeking the corner office, or even that simple promotion.  It happens to EVERYONE!

The problem all too many of us have when reaching for our aims, is we give up too soon.  We lack determination, staying power, and the self-discipline to see our dreams through.

If you’ve known someone who this has happened to before, or if it’s happened to you, there is a now solution.

But before I give you the solution, let me tell you a little story.

The story I am about to tell you, is part of the solution.

If you understand the story, you’ll understand the solution.

You ready? Here we go….

(Disclaimer:  By sharing the story below, I am in no way suggesting that one must quit their day job to pursue their dream. This story is merely an account of the path I chose, what I learned from it, and how you can gain from it.  There are multiple paths to a destination, and not everyone’s path will look the same.)

An Short Strive Story

A few years ago I was an Operations Manager for a large corporate firm out of Texas.  As part of the management team, we were studying a classic leadership book by Stephen Covey.  The book was titled ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’, and it included an exercise that would change my life forever.

The exercise we were studying, was meant to help us create a clearer vision for our lives.  The exercise had us imagine ourselves being able to witness our own funeral. It prodded us to examine how we wanted to be remembered by our friends and family at our funeral.  And it was during this exercise, that I had this looming feeling.  It was the feeling that I wasn’t on the right path.  My gut told me that if continued down the path I was on, I wouldn’t be happy with who I’d eventually become.

I remember thinking to myself:  “I don’t want to be remembered as a coward.  I don’t want be remembered as a person who lacked the courage to at least try to go for what he really wanted in this life!”

It was a visceral feeling that convinced me;  if I didn’t give my dream at least one last shot, I would regret it for the rest of my life.

So, it was in that moment that I became certain that the path I was on didn’t align with the vision I wanted for my life.  And it was in that moment I realized I had to do something about it.  So, that very next week I resigned.

I resigned from my corporate job, hedging both my career and the guaranteed income that would secure a comfortable retirement for both my wife and I.  It was a scary decision to make. But, I felt if there was ever a time in my life to give my dream a shot, it would be at that moment.

So, I did what many people might consider crazy, decided to purse my dream of becoming the author, the motivator, the life-changer that I felt in my heart, that I could be.

As such, I set off on my grand journey to create a motivational business.  During the first few months on this new journey of mine, I did not make a dime.  But, I kept to it, I kept striving to make this dream work.

After about 6 months, I was still not making much money.  The traffic to my site started to grow significantly, but I had yet to truly monetize it (make money from it), as the one book I published was not selling very well.

Nothing seemed to be working, which led to a huge dip in my enthusiasm.  I started to feel frustrated and discouraged.  But, I did not want to give up on my dreams. I had worked too freaking hard for them already.  Plus, I didn’t want to let down all the people I was striving to motivate, so I persisted.

The 9th month mark arrived all too soon, and somehow, I was still not profitable in my endeavors. I started to have thoughts like, “What the heck is going on here!?  This can’t be happening, I am doing this full-time for goodness-sake!”

I felt like I was drowning.  Like there was nothing I could do to keep me from sinking.  However, I was not ready for this story to end, so I decided once again to press on.

Nearly 12 months had passed, and I was still nowhere near reaching the goals I initially set for myself.  But, in the middle of the next year almost a year-to-the date from when I resigned to pursue my dream, things started to change.

The money from my business started to grow. It was a trickle, but it was something. And with this little bit of success, I was happy, at least for a little while. But then something crucial happened. I became deflated like a balloon with a massive leak! And despite the recent growth, I was all of a sudden feeling like I had hit my lowest point in my pursuit in terms of motivation.

Yes, I had a bit more money coming in, yes, my traffic, my audience, and my business were growing.  However, the business was not where I hoped it would be, especially considering the ridiculous amounts of effort I had already put in to it.  In truth, the business was not where I needed it to be.

At my lowest point in my 12-month journey, the point where most people would quit, something happened.   I had this nagging feeling that everything I was doing was for naught.  I started to wonder if I was wasting my time, and that maybe the writing was on the wall.  I wondered if the time had come for me to throw in the towel on this dream of mine.

It was as if every bone in my body was sapped of energy to keep going.  But then, in that lowest point of the many lows experienced during this 12-month adventure, I took a deep breath, and said to myself, “I am going to keep going.  It may not be in the exact same direction as I initially planned, but I am going to keep going.  I am going to make this work.” 

Now bear in mind, I didn’t feel like I had the physical or emotional energy to keep going at this point.  But astonishingly, my mind did.

And just like that, not even a few minutes later, like a stroke of magic, a new set of brilliant ideas for my business came to me.  It was an idea for both a new strategy, and a change up in my brand.

It was a magical second wind that I desperately needed.  A second wind that gave new life to my goals and dreams. Suddenly, I was back in the game and on fire to keep striving.  But this time around it was with much more vigor. It even felt like their was more purpose behind me than when I first got started but a year ago.

365 days after getting started on my journey, I found the clarity around my business that was missing.  I gained a clearer vision for where I wanted to take it, and a better way to add value to the world.  My dream found it’s footing, but it took time, some failures, and pushing past a critical breaking point.

This story is the unfolding of my STRIVE.

Those first 365 days of my venture were not a waste.  They were the stepping stones of struggle and effort that needed to be set.

There is a quote that sums up the experience I had, and the journey that many of us must experience before we reach our aims, and it is this:

The Solution

This solution I am offering you was born from that initial experience of powering through the dip.  It is a solution that can help you create a new starting point for future power and triumph.  It will help you in your pursuits, be they big or small.

This solution is your stepping stone for reaching for those worthy goals that bring you most to life.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Great story, but what is the solution?”

Well my friend, the solution is this motivation journal I created to help you weather the storms that come with dream chasing.

The solution, is this STRIVE Journal!

If you are an aspiring artist, author, or entrepreneur, I know you know what it’s like to reach for those dreams of yours.  I know what it is like being on the verge of quitting.  You may have even quit already, I don’t know.  But, what I do know is this, that if you give your aspirations the time and effort to become a living thing… your success is guaranteed.

Every time you say no to giving up on your goals, you are saying yes to your dreams. As as a result, you inch yourself closer and closer with each courageous push.

So if you’re wondering, “Well how is this journal going to help me or my friend who may be struggling to keep their dream alive?”

Here is how my friend…..

How This Motivational Journal Will Help You Learn…

How to Never Give Up on Your Goals

First and foremost, you must know this motivation journal is meant to help you persist until you get to your second wind.  But not just to your second wind, but also to your third, your fourth, and every other wind there after until your reach your goal.  The journal is meant to help you keep going.  It is meant to keep you striving long enough to realize the success you seek.

If you’re wondering, “But how does it do this?” Here’s how:

Builds Momentum with 365 Days of Encouragement

Goals take time to accomplish, but most people don’t realize this.  In fact, most people don’t truly understand how long a worthy goal can actually take to create some momentum around.  As such, we’ve designed this journal to give you the encouragement you need to move the needle forward. And to do so for a long enough period of time for you to actually experience the results you’re after.

We are in it for the long haul, and this journal strives to ensure you are too.

Zero-in On What You Really Want

This journal helps you zero-in on what you really want from life, and then it forces you to remind yourself every single day (see high performance habits below).  Why every single day?  Because, when you consistently remind yourself why you are getting out of bed every morning, you’ll be less likely to deviate from your desired end.  Plus, when you finally convince (program) yourself what it is you are really working towards, you’ll become unstoppable!

After you set up that one big goal that drives everything you do, the journal will also guide you in setting quarterly goals.  Each quarterly goal is a stepping stone that will eventually lead you to your main aim, your STRIVE!

365 Personal Messages to Strengthen Your Drive to Strive

The Strive Journal also includes 365 recorded messages to help you stay motivated.  Each message is unique to each day of your Strive.  Each message will encourage you to keep moving forward!

Just like ole Rocky Balboa said…

Never Give Up On Your Dreams Quote

The Strive Drive is the drill sergeant you’ve always secretly wanted!  It’s the drill sergeant that will get you to take action, without getting spit in your face!

Action Based Motivation Journal

Look, your dreams don’t have a chance in hell at becoming a reality if you don’t work for them.  That’s why this journal includes a built-in accountability model to help you keep track of your daily efforts.  If you want to reach your biggest goals, it is going to take hours of consistent effort, 24/7/365.   Your dream deserves at least a few hours every day, if it is going to someday grace you with its attainment.

Never Give Up Journal

And that is why this journal is so great!  It will ask you to do something every day to keep you moving closer to your goals, and it will score you for the effort you put in.  If you really want to reach your goals, a consistent push to do something every single day is necessary.

To Do Lists

This Strive Journal also acts as daily planner.  It has a daily To Do List included on each page of the journal.

The To Do List is modeled off one of the most effective strategies for daily goal completion, the 1-3-5 Rule.  The premise of this rule is to focus on prioritizing your daily tasks, by getting you to complete at least 1 BIG goal, 3 Medium sized tasks, and 5 little things each day.

By applying this rule to your To-Do strategy, you will be able to supercharge your ability to do the daily tasks that need to get done for you to reach your aims.

High Performance Habits

I’ve been studying successful people for over a decade now, and the one thing all of them had in common, were great habits.  To help you kickstart some habits that will usher you into becoming a high performing goal attainment machine, this journal has laid out a few habits that you should practice daily.  By doing so, you will level up your abilities to reach your goals.

The journal has a checklist of daily activities that it highly suggests you do, and provides you with the best time of day to do them.  Because if you do these activities, you will begin doing the same practices that a great many success gurus, leaders, and high achievers do.

If you’re wondering, “But I don’t want to be a success guru, or the next Richard Branson, why should I do these high-performance habits?”

Here is why.  The one reason why you should want to do as they do, is because they are masterful goal achievers.  They have a proven track record of achieving their goals.

And if there is one thing this journal is trying to do, it is ultimately to help you reach your goals, your dreams.  The journal will help you achieve the goal that keeps you up at night.

The Purpose of This Motivation Journal

I am going to say it again.  The purpose of this journal is to keep you going. I will help you never give up on your goals.  Your dreams, goals, and ambitious endeavors deserve time to incubate.  And in order for them to do so, you need to be able to overcome the biggest obstacle to success… giving up too soon!

Now most people don’t have the luxury of quitting their job to pursue their dream full time, like I did.  Which can actually make giving up too soon even likelier.

I was fortunate enough to do so initially, because of some great investments I made in real estate.  On top of that, I’ve had some luck with my first internet business, which provided some helpful cashflow to fund my endeavors.

That said, I’ve even had to go back to work a couple of times since first publishing this journal, but that didn’t mean I failed. Nor did it mean I gave up. I just meant I had to pivot a few times. But, that’s what’s great about this journal, it helps you keep your eye on the prize, regardless of the obstacles your face.

And because I didn’t quit, I’ve since managed to grow this site by over 232% year over year for the past five years, more than quadrupled my revenue, inspire and motivate over 2 million people, and transform this site into one of the top motivational sites on the web.

So, long story short….

BEST WAYS TO AVOID BURNOUT

Best Ways to Prevent Burnout

1. Work Towards A Goal

Students at The Harvard MBA Business School did a study back in 1979 about goal-setting. They found that 83% of graduates have no goals whatsoever, 13% of them have some goals, and 3% of them have clear, written-down goals.

Want to guess who was more successful?

The 13% that had some goals ended up making twice as much as the ones that had no goals, while the top 3% that had clear, written down goals ended up making ten times (10x!!) more than their former colleagues.

The validity of this study has been questioned in the past, and financial gain may not be the only metric for success, but psychologists, entrepreneurs and CEOs agree that goal-setting is important.

And it makes sense. It’s easier to stay focused and keep working when you see a greater purpose (and finality) to your efforts.

But, you don’t need to JUST set some goals and write them down. This creates ambiguity in your unconscious mind, which creates an unclear image of that higher purpose.

To avoid this, be as specific as possible in your goal-setting – don’t say you want to be rich, clarify how rich and in what timeline.

2. Schedule Your Day

Goals seem unreachable when you just throw a 3 years resolution out there, no matter how specific.

For that purpose, you need to get nitty-gritty with your future plans. The best way to do that is to plan each day in advance.

I use the Google Calendar for that – You can easily create tasks, you can color-code them and you can share them with other people.

The best thing, however, is that you get notifications on your phone, in advance. That way, you’re always reminded of what you have to do and it’s easier to focus on the task at hand, since Google keeps track of the big picture you set up in advance.

The Google Calendar is not the only app that helps you schedule your day. Wunderlist (soon to be To-Do), Trello, Todoist, Evernote – these are off the top of my head. I’m sure you’ll find one that suits your needs.

If apps don’t help, you can get old-school. Grab a piece of paper and a pen and create a classic to-do list, but just make sure you do it.

Once you have a tasklist, make sure you stick to it. That’s a task in and of itself, but the next steps should help with that as well.

3. Build A Positive Outlook On Life

You might think “Easy for you to say, you’re not stuck with a shitty job that you have to struggle to keep in order to pay the bills”

First of all, a lot of successful, happy people were in your shoes at some point in their life.

Secondly, a positive outlook on life can be built (keyword built) in spite of your job, debt or problems.

Did I say build a positive outlook? Yes I did, because a healthy mindset doesn’t appear out of nowhere – you can’t just have a positive thinking. You have to work for it.

What might you do? There’s a few things that can help:

  • Focus on (re)building healthy relationships with those close to you.
  • Spend more time doing what you love (It can even turn into a full-time gig if you focus hard enough).
  • Eat healthily, sleep well and exercise.
  • Get support. There’s nothing wrong with seeing a therapist even if your mental status is not completely wrecked.

Developing a high emotional intelligence is key when you think of how to avoid burnout.

4. Practice Deep Work to Avoid Burnout

I have to admit, Cal Newport is a big source of inspiration for me.

For those of you who don’t know, he wrote a book called Deep Work. It’s a very easy read on how to focus completely on what you’re doing and achieve more in less time.

If you haven’t read it, I recommend it. It changed my viewpoint on work ethic completely and it did help me achieve a lot more in less time.

So what is Deep Work?

Basically, a person that performs deep work is so immersed in what they’re doing (i.e. writing, coding, talking) that there are absolutely no distractions. It’s a trance-like meditative state in which the mind is completely focused on a singular task for a prolonged period of time (I practice it for about 2-4 hours a day).

Practically, for 2-4 hours there are no phone calls, no emails, no social media, absolutely nothing else other than the task at hand.

“I can’t do that, people rely on me, I must provide prompt answers to their queries over email or phone”.

That’s what I thought. That’s what Cal Newport thought. But as soon as you begin to practice it, you’ll notice emails and phone calls can wait for a few hours – and the results are drastic improvements in productivity.

You probably won’t be able to start with a 4 hour Deep Work push. That’s all right, I started with 30 mins of deep work everyday and worked my way up from that. Regardless of how you do it, try it out – you’ll achieve a newfound sense of pride and completeness about your work, which keeps the stress at bay.

5. Exercise Regularly

This one is often thrown around for a better everything.

Regardless of how mainstream it is to mention exercise for any type of improvement, it’s truly important for a better work life.

How come?

Making time to exercise gets your happy chemicals working – serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, all brain hormones associated with happiness are released when exercising.

And when you think about it, burnout is a chemical reaction in our brain, just like everything else we feel.

When it was first coined in 1974 by Herbert Freudenberger, the term “burnout” referred to “emotional depletion” among other things. The jury’s out on that, regular exercise is a deterrent to emotional depletion, so jogging every morning should help.

6. Optimize Work

We don’t get bored or mentally destroyed by creative and engaging new tasks.

By nature, humans love a great challenge, and we get excited when we have to come up with new ideas, even if that’s at a meh workplace.

What gets the stress wheel going are the tedious tasks – sending and answering to emails, repetitive data entry, holding the same workshop the 23rd time, etc.

That’s why you should find ways to work efficiently.

If you can afford it, personal assistants help a lot with that.

They take the tedious part out of your work so you can focus on the good stuff. You don’t even have to hire someone full-time for that, you can find awesome, highly trained virtual assistants on places like Zirtual for as low as $400 a month.

Don’t really need and/or afford a virtual assistant?

That’s alright, technology is here to help. You can automate the boring parts of your work with software like Zapier, Memberful and MailChimp. Emails, data entry and scheduling are all done easier with these apps.

7. Do Fulfilled Projections

Meditation is great for a more productive lifestyle. It teaches you self-control, it improves your emotional stability and it’s a good tool for removing stress.

There’s a myriad of resources online about why you should do it and how you should do it. What I’d like to talk about now is a special kind of meditation, called projections.

So, once you’re capable to remove every thought from your head for at least 10-20 minutes, you should try imagining yourself in certain situations.

While you’re in a meditative stance, take your goals one at a time. Know them by heart and start projecting yourself in a situation where you’ve achieved your goals. Don’t just generally think about them, be specific about how you feel, what you see and what you do after you’ve made a million bucks or quit smoking.

Once you’ve got a clear picture about your best possible future scenario, also project yourself in situations where there’s a struggle. Imagine the obstacles along the way, such as getting bored, being stressed, and most importantly: failing. After that, also imagine how you’ve overcome the obstacle.

This will make burning out an easier obstacle to overcome, simply because you’ve mentally been there before. It’s like a trick for your mind – if the subconscious believes you’ve been in this situation in the past, and yet succeeded, it will be much easier to stay focused and stick to a schedule.

8. Sleep Well

Any effort towards burnout prevention is futile if you’re tired.

No matter how much motivated or hard working you are, if you don’t have a healthy sleeping schedule it will be physically impossible to stay focused and be productive.

Nobody knows why humans have to sleep, but everybody knows that they do have to

Experts suggest that for the average adult 7 to 9 hours of sleep should do the trick, but everybody is unique and you may need more or less. The basic healthy sleep schedule is a good 10 pm to 6 am slumber, because this is the interval our brain secretes the most melatonin, a hormone that helps with getting a restful shuteye.

You should start there and experiment with cutting or adding a few hours, based on how you feel.

Can’t accomplish everything you want with only 16 hours of conscious existence every day?

Biphasic and Polyphasic sleep can help. These are methods of segmenting your sleep schedule throughout the day in order to get rested, but have more time at your disposal. An example of a polyphasic sleep schedule would be sleeping from 1 am to 4 am, then taking two more 20 minutes naps at noon and in the evening.

It may sound like sleep deprivation, but a lot of people employ this method to be more efficient and avoid burnout by not being stressed by the tick of the clock.

Is this right for you? You can find out more over here.

9. Take Breaks

Taking a well-deserved break doesn’t mean giving in to burnout symptoms. It’s actually a great way to overcome them.

Everybody has a breaking point and there’s no shame in either stopping for a chat at the water cooler or taking a 3 day city break in the weekend. Disconnecting from your daily tasks is a great way to prevent burning out, because your subconscious realizes the tedious tasks don’t go on forever, and there’s fun at the end of the dreaded tunnel.

However, make sure you don’t spend too much time in the Bahamas!

Taking breaks that are too long (or too often) can have the opposite effect. To best avoid this, define clear breaks in your schedule.

When I’m not performing deep work, I work the classic 50 minutes with 10 minutes break time, but you can experiment with this. The Pomodoro Technique entails 25 minutes of focused work with 5 minutes of break time after each productive push, so that might work better for you.

10. Work For Yourself

The easiest way to not be overcome by dread every time you sit at your desk is to work for you. Your dreams, your goals, your ideas, your interests and your beliefs.

Stuck at a shi**y call center job while you dream to have your own business selling consultancy services?

There’s always something you can do to be closer to your dream. If right now you are dependent on a job you don’t like, there’s still time after 5 o’clock to learn a new skill, go back to school, put in the hours for a side project, etc.

You can imagine your current job as a tool – brings money in so you can invest them in your own ideas later on. That in and of itself will make every task easier to complete, and you’ll be much better prepared on how to overcome burnout at work.

The point is, you should always align your efforts with your goals, and make changes in your life accordingly: start saving money, create your own website, volunteer, get another degree.

Anything that gets you closer to where you want to be in life.

Final Thoughts on Avoiding Burnout

Here’s a closing recap on the best ways you can prevent burn out:

  • Work Towards a Goal
  • Schedule Your Day
  • Build Positivity Into Your Life
  • Practice Deep Work
  • Exercise Regularly
  • Optimize Work
  • Do Fulfilled Projections
  • Sleep Well
  • Take Breaks
  • Work For Yourself

None of these tips will solve your issues instantly.  In fact, most of them will require dedication to complete.

But, with a little bit of patience and some diligence, following these steps on how to avoid burnout will get you closer to a stress-free life.
