It just happened on the weekend. We had a missionary come home from our church and we were sitting around and sure enough one of my nephews asked me how my business was going...
Now my business is going really well!
And I make a really great substantial income!
But in years past it wasn't so...
And I would have felt like I had to lie to make it look good. LOL!

So how to get back in the game when you feel like giving up?
When you commit to something you HAVE to accept no excuses! You only accept results!Tanya Liza
The point is...
If you're not committed, that is usually the underlying reason why most people quit is because they were never committed in the first place!
Are you all in or all out?
You want to make sure that you know where your commitment is at and you have to KNOW that you have to go from A to B...
AND that A to B is set in stone!
It's already decided in the universe, your A to B might be easier than my A to B.
and it might be more challenging.
BUT You HAVE to go from A to B no questions asked!
And no excuses!
The only way to get there is by doing what gets you closer and closer...
So when you are on your own, when you're your own boss, one of the main things that ends up happening is you're kind of like an island.
You're on your own.
Even though you're in this world of building your business online, you kind of feel alone.
It's like you're on an island and you are the only one that can give yourself motivation, praise and encouragement.
And it's really hard to stay that way...
So lets talk about the top tips to help you move forward faster and avoid the pitfalls.
Get inside of a community where you have people that can support you, that can be part of what you're doing.... that can also give you praise and encouragement.
People will actually do more for praise and appreciation.
People actually do more for appreciation than they will do for money!
It's part of our human need...
Part of our essential human need is to be appreciated and to be part of something.
So, Find a group that you can be part of...
There's a bunch of groups out there that you could be a part of and get real supported...
Then you will feel like you're part of something bigger than just you being an island... It can get super lonely on your own island.
How many times as an entrepreneur have felt super lonely at times?
Have you ever felt like you're on your own island?,
I know how that feels... working from home and only talking to my kids, and they don't really get what I do... so you feel kind of like you're an island.
Even my husband doesn't really understand what I do because he's still in the corporate world.
Joining a group and being supported by people is so important...
You can even make your own group of people if you don't have one that you're super excited about...
Tip #2 :
Ask for support from your friends and family!
This is harder than it sounds... But embrace your family and friends because they want you to see you get results!
And sometimes the results (network marketing, building online, or building offline or however you want to build your business), are just not showing up as quickly as we had hoped..
We do all the work upfront and results may not show up till down the road...
But asking for support from friends and family is a great way to stay in the game.
Tip # 3:
Meditation is important to calm your mind and your body,
This is one that some of my team members use and they absolutely love it...
I'm still practicing.
Tip # 4
Listen to a podcast or get into a training or training event.
Events are perfect because when you go to events you're going to be around like minded people and you don't feel like the weird duck out!
As entrepreneurs sometimes we are the weird people that don't have jobs.
We work for ourselves and so it's harder to keep ourselves motivated.
You want to have these things in place when you feel like quitting so that you can go and get recharged.
Sometimes when you're just working, working, working, working, working, and you're not seeing in results, you may want to put in a reward system for yourself...
I do this when I hit certain goals inside of my business..
Some rewards for me are just simple like getting my nails done or a massage.
Sometimes I'll buy something that I've been wanting to buy for a long time..
I reward myself... when I've hit that goal.
