Too many people give up at the first bit of resistance and then claim that things don’t work when in actuality, they abandoned things too soon. Reality is full of challenges and obstacles. How do you overcome them?
You can’t give up.
Success doesn’t happen right away.
I played golf over the weekend and was excited for the round as it was my league championship and I thought that I could have a good chance to place in the standings if I had a solid round.
Things didn’t work out as planned.
It took me till the 18th and final hole to get my first par of the day.
I usually have four or five pars in a normal round.
I shot my second worst score of the year.
It was one of those rounds where nothing went my way.
No favorable bounces. No lucky shots. Nothing to brag about after the round.
It was 18 holes and five hours of just grinding it out.
Quitting and walking off the course wasn’t an option.

I’ve had clients who have bailed on campaigns when they did not see immediate results on the first try and then wonder why they are continually stuck.
Reality is full of challenges and obstacles. How do you overcome them?
The answer is simple, but not easy.
You have to keep going.
You have to persist through the tough times and continue to work towards your goals.
Only then will you be able to achieve success.
Remember, if you want something bad enough, you have to be willing to put in the hard work required to get it.
There are no shortcuts in life. So don’t give up on your dreams, no matter how difficult they may seem at times. Keep pushing forward and eventually, you’ll reach your destination.
Giving up will only lead to failure while persistence leads to success.
