You're discouraged. For months you have actively worked to get your message to the world but no one is listening. Your money, energy and creative juices are running low and the worst part is ... NO ONE IS LISTENING.
All the motivational experts tell you to pick yourself up and dust yourself off. Stop belly-aching and keep pressing ahead. But truthfully, you'd rather crawl in a corner and lick your wounds. I get it, more than you know.
In life as in business you are faced with decisions everyday which are designed by God to make you stronger and more obedient to His plan. At the same time, the discouragement, deafening silence and seeming lack of progress are there to push you to quit.
This is why the singular most important thing you will have to know about success is your, Why. Why do you get up in the morning? Why do you serve your family? Why do you do the work you do? The 'why' behind what you do is crucial in reminding yourself during the times of heavy discouragement.
Your why MUST be bigger than you.
For example, my why
for our #Myovariesmatter
Campaign is simply: I do the M.O.M Campaign because I care about women and their unborn babies
When I think about all the hardships I've faced over the recent years and how many times I've wanted to throw in the towel, it was the why that gave me courage to keep going. Whether it was struggles with my children, my husband, my in-laws, or even friends; when problems mounted and few could relate (and even less took interest) my why was the fuel God used to keep me steady.
For the nights you've spent in silent tears, excruciating migraines and aching shoulders from stress, you are not alone. I've been there, so I'm giving you what I needed at those very moments: Truth. You need to know that the message you were put on Earth to deliver is important. It's importance is the reason why you face the opposition. You have the power to change someone's life, give them hope, a new perspective and faith in God, why wouldn't that scare your opposer? Why wouldn't he try to discourage you?
I have found that when I thought the worst, things weren't as detrimental as I believed. When I thought I was alone, I was actually in good company. We may think no one hears us, we may believe our efforts are in vain but as surely as I write these words, I know YOU are listening. You understand why what we do is neccessary and ultimately I believe there are others who will have eyes to see and ears to hear. So don't stop! You know I am preaching to the choir. Let's make a deal to keep the faith because we truly have a great reason why.
