When It's Taking Too Long to Reach Your Goals

It's the age-old feeling of life, goals, and dreams not happening fast enough.

"I've been working out for 2 weeks and don't see a difference yet."

"I've been working my business and I'm not making money yet."

"I've decided to change my life, but it doesn't feel any different yet."

If you've ever been in a relationship, you know, they are all unique. What takes some couples 5 months takes others 2 years.

If you've ever watched someone's weight-loss journey, you know it takes some 6 months and others 4 years.

Here's the deal, there's no such thing as an "over-night success". Stop comparing your beginning to someone else's middle. This is your life, your journey.

I was listening to an amazing podcast the other day, and the speaker said, "I'm not an over-night success with my book. I wrote five other books before this one that nobody cared about."

How amazing it that?! Just think about it for a second. Most successful people are successful, because they have failed over and over and over again.

So really, the point is, you're going to stop because you aren't making progress fast enough?

You're going to quit because it's hard and you want instant gratification?

Everything takes time. There is no quick fix, or easy way. If there was, don't you think we'd all be doing it?

Look at it this way, you know what it's like to give up. We've all given up before. Been there, done that.

But what if you didn't give up. Where could you go? What could you do? Great things take years to make, create, and cultivate.

Don't stop. Look for the things you can see progress in. Are you feeling excited by your work? Are your muscles sore? Did someone compliment your bravery?

Hold on to anything you can and stay the course!

What if J.K. Rowling had decided it was taking too long to finish writing Harry Potter?

What if Bill Gates had said, "You know what, this is just too difficult."?

What if that MLM guru you admire had given up?

What if Bilbo Baggins had decided to turn around and leave the dwarfs as spider food? How lame of an ending would that have been?! Bilbo had already overcome so much and gone so far! Did he still have a crap ton more to go in his story, yes. But, thank god the novel didn't end with Bilbo going, "Nope. Can't do spiders. Sorry guys."

Keep going. You never know what part of the journey you are on because you are living it. Perhaps you are just about to meet Smaug for the first time. You don't know. Do not turn back now. Your adventure is being written.
