YourMondayMotivator: Screw this!

What do you you do when one of the worst things that could happen to your business or you happens?

When you can’t get hold of anyone to fix it and you’re basically at a standstill?

When you just feel like throwing your hands in the air and saying, “Screw this!”, then throwing in the towel.

What do you do? What do you do?

I’m repeating myself because I really want you to think about this. It’s a measure of your character.

I look at it like this. I’m one step away from the summit of a mountain, the wind is howling, I’m being blinded by the rain, I’ve run out of food and I’m starting to slid backwards. But I know one more step will take me to the summit and over the top to a gentle downhill run where a nice warm meal and a hot drink are waiting.

What do I do? I fight with every ounce of energy I have to take that step over the top because even if I stumble over the top I can roll down the slope on the other side.

Next time you feel like this take your hand off the towel and take the step. The hot drink and warm meal will be worth it.
