Have you ever gotten to that place where you feel like everything is going against you, no matter how hard you try, or how much you do? Ever feel like you just want to throw in the towel and give up?
I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been there. Whether it’s about our health, our finances, our businesses, our relationships, getting over our fears – at some point, each of us comes to this point of frustration, when fears and doubts and outright pessimism take over. We want to throw something, cry, and just say “enough is enough.”
And what happens next? You’re at the breaking point. You’re standing at a crossroads, and you have two very clear choices. Try again? Or give up altogether on your dreams? Neither choice is an easy one… and the choice to get up and go on and try yet again may be the more difficult of the two. So what do you do? Well, that’s up to you – but I want to share some really valuable advice with you that will help you choose which path to take – and make it just a little easier for you.
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” – Harriet Beecher Stowe
You’ve also most likely heard the above statement said like this: “it’s always darkest just before the dawn.”
Why is this?
The reason why this happens is because we experience a shift when we are feeling close to giving up. We work so hard for a dream to come true in our lives – and after so much time and effort go by without the results we want, when we feel like giving up, we actually let go of our attachment to outcome – of our need to have this experience, circumstance, person, or thing in our lives – we let that go just a little bit – when we are ready to give up. And in this process, our energy shifts. We go through a grieving process, in which our cells literally let go of resistance, and take on a new energy of allowing and accepting. And then, in our new energy of allowing and accepting – we try yet again, what happens? We get much closer to realizing our goals and dreams. And sometimes it’s that last little effort that manifests the result that had previously eluded us.
While this is all absolutely true, what most of us don’t realize is that this belief that “it’s always darkest before the dawn” is also a subconscious program that we have running – one that can really make us suffer. And it doesn’t have to be that way. We do not have to get to the breaking point before we can experience this energetic shift! This is where I come in and help you find your subconscious programs that have you believing things like “I must experience complete failure before I can succeed” and “I have to break before I can be fixed,” and “it’s always darkest before the dawn.” If you are finding yourself in a constant pattern of getting to your darkest hour before things turn around for you, ask yourself if you really want to keep experiencing this, or if you might rather learn how to succeed without first having to fail. It’s all in your subconscious mind. Using the Energetic Mastery Mindset Coaching Program, I help people just like you and me to learn how to focus the mind and release and reprogram trapped emotions and subconscious beliefs that keep us in patterns of misery and failure, so that we can experience that energetic shift of accepting, allowing, trusting, understanding, succeeding, loving, and rejoicing – without first having to feel like giving up. I encourage you to ask me more about this if you are interested in learning about how this works.
So are you still ready to give up? With this in mind, do you feel a little better about accepting your feelings of resignation, letting it out, letting it go, and trying yet again?
Don’t quit. Don’t give up. Accept your doubts, fears and frustrations as part of your human nature, and give thanks for the lessons they teach us. Go ahead and throw things. Go ahead and cry. Go ahead and get mad. And then forgive yourself, because it really is OK. Find one thought – any thought – that makes you smile. And then, when you are ready, give it one more try.
