Your Next Move Could Be Three Feet Away From Gold | Life

Giving up is easy and may seem like the best thing to do when frustrated. That passion and drive you once had for your craft is starting to die out and you’re starting to ask yourself “what’s the point?” But, ask yourself this, would you be asking that question if you knew your next move was just a few steps away from everything you wanted?

This post is inspired by Napoleon Hill’s Think & Grow Rich, the book that kept me from completely shutting down my blog last month. If you’re subscribed to the newsletter (if you’re not, then what you waiting on sis?) then you know I was over it and was just a few seconds away from hitting that ‘delete account’ before telling myself to sleep on it.

So what about this book made me think twice? Well, the story of the miner who gave up just three feet away from millions of dollars of gold. This taught him a valuable, not to give in times on “temporary defeat”.

Now, I didn’t delete the blog because I was hoping that my next blog post was going to bring me millions of dollars. It’s actually still up because I had to realize these creative ruts I get into are temporary. Also I asked myself did I do everything I could do before making the permanent decision to shut it down? The answer was “no”.

Have I been consistent? No. Have I been working on improving my writing? No. Have I been posting quality content? Eh. So why was I getting frustrated when really no work was being put in? I soon realized that there’s a difference between being fed up at the moment and knowing that it’s actually your time to let go of something. I believe telling myself to sleep on the decision and then reading that chapter was no coincidence and the site is here to stay :).

Before you go just remember, the talents and ideas placed inside of you were placed there for a reason and you never know where the next move you make can take you. Don’t let any temporary setbacks or plateaus trick you into thinking that giving up is your only option.

    So Good and So True. Temporary feelings of “defeat” or giving up are just that- temporary. And they will for sure come! I love what you said about knowing when it’s your time to really let go, and knowing the difference between that and a temporary feeling of defeat.
