If You Feel Like Quitting, Think of the Purpose Why You Started It

Updated on November 22, 2019

He loves to write. It is his passion. It is also his time of reflection and a time to discover more about life.

Take a break. Breathe. Reflect.
Take a break. Breathe. Reflect.

Find time to stop and contemplate for a while.

As we journey to our chosen paths, a lot around us would seem to matter. The people we met, the responsibilities we should take, the tasks we must accomplish, the time we had to beat, and the circumstances we have no control, all of these either would push us to move forward or press us within to falter. We could have smooth beginnings, but issues could arise at some point, shaking our stillness. If we are strong enough to resist the quake and move our feet onward, then we could certainly go on, and see what we aimed to achieve. But what would make us firm enough?

It is hard to answer such a question when we have experienced boredom with our undertakings, stress from multiple tasks at hand, issues with people we associate, and happenings we don't understand. These things would eat us up and drain all our energies and passion. Then thoughts of quitting would play inside our head, leaving behind all our reasons why we have taken that road in the first place. But there is still a better option which we should entertain. What is it?

Our purpose and vision are too big that we need to have reasons in between, so we can keep going and achieve them.

Take a break. Breathe. Reflect.

Find time to stop and contemplate for a while.

Aside from we are born a fighter and a victor, it is absolute that we have a specific purpose and clear vision of why we chose such a journey. It is time to revisit it within us. Think about it. And imagine it coming to life until it would rekindle the fire in our hearts. Then we could slowly make little steps and proceed. And as we continue, let us not forget to look for good reasons to inspire us more. Let it be our loved ones or a short-term goal.

Our purpose and vision are too big that we need to have reasons in between, so we can keep going and achieve them.
