We have all felt like giving up whether it is in the field of sport, our business or personal life and it can feel lonely when we think that all the hard work and effort we put in, isn't paying off.
Below are 5 tips to remember when things start getting us down.
1. Bring back the passion.
When things get tough, we forget what got us motivated in the first place. Have a note on the fridge or in a journal on the "WHY". Make sure it is in a prominent place where you can see it when you need it the most.
2. Have confident in your abilities.
The reason you have got where you are if because you are amazing at what you do. Remember this so that you can re-focus on what is important.
3. Discover the power of persistence.
We can all think of that person who seems to get success at the drop of a hat. I will let you into a little secret, that success has come from hard work and effort which is often done behind the scenes. It is the art of persistence that has kept them going with the belief that they will succeed in the end.
4. Variety is the spice of life.
When a task gets tricky or soul destroying, move onto something that builds your confidence, do some reading, go back to basics, take a break. Set another day to revisit the task as you will not do it justice if you continue with the task when you feel this way.
5. Celebrate your successes.
Finally, think of how far you have come. Treat yourself when you have completed something that is outside your comfort zone or if you have achieved your training goals. Be proud of what you have achieved and tell people about it.
Rediscover your sparkle and you will get right on track before you know it.
