To persevere or to pivot is a question that do-ers have been asking themselves since the beginning of time. It’s never a straight road when you are doing something new, blazing a trail, breaking a ceiling, or pushing boundaries, so it’s only natural to wonder whether to give up midway. How do you know whether to keep going or to give up?

The art of conversation is one of the closest things to real life magic. Conversation brings connections and new opportunities for us to explore in our lives. Life without exploration would be pointless because we’d have no purpose. Purpose is something we all strive to find and one day hope to live towards. Purpose comes from passion which is discovered through patience. Time is the one thing that determines how life is going to be laid out whether it’s good or bad but the key to finding out where your life will be laid out depends on patience. You can’t find your passion by the snap of a finger. Passion comes from years of searching your soul to see what makes it glow the brightest. But some people lose track of their passion because they give up on it. People want instant gratification but passion can’t just be a limited time deal, passion needs to be permanent. Most of the time finding a passion and purpose can be difficult because it takes a lot of time, effort and decision making to truly find what makes you happy. Read more>>

I do not believe in giving up so much as I do in redirection. I find great importance in letting go of that which has served its purpose and allowing all that is continuing to align with your truth and path to fill the space. It is not a question of whether or not to keep going but rather a decision of which direction or path to proceed forward with and of how much weight you’ll continue to carry with you along the journey. If the vibration in question is rooted in love, in passion, in resonation with your soul it will always be one to continue to believe in and take steps forward for. My experience has proven that in every path there are obstacles and tribulations that arise. Though, it has also proven that in every case they are there to speak of testaments to your strength, resilience, and dedication to your passion and love. Keep going. If the vibration in question is rooted in the pleasing of others beliefs and expectations, in the fulfilling of ego, in that of a pugnacious or resistant nature, release. Read more>>

I don’t give up. I think this is why I have been successful. There are times when I think back to working for someone else at a corporation and the positive aspects of being part of a large company, while experiencing the trials, tribulations, successes, long days, and pivots of owning my own business, I just keep going and keep at it. When I first started my own business, someone said to me, “are you a hard worker?” and I said, “yes, I am,” and they said then you are making the right decision to work for yourself. Read more>>
