As you might know, I'm a Social Media Manager, and, without wanting to gloat, I'm doing fine.
But it was a long and hard way before I finally got there. I invested literally years in the project, and in the meantime I didn't have anything to show for it. Yes, maybe a client here, a client there, but nothing to write home about.
And it was tough. I was the only one who believed in me and my dreams, but sometimes I just began to wonder......... Had I lost my mind?
At other times it was brute stubbornness that kept me going. At those times I even forgot my goals, I just gritted my teeth and did my thing.
In 2013 I was just about to throw in the towel. I desperately talked to one of my sons about persistence, while I was at the point of losing it. I remember telling him that there was a very fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot........ (I remember him laughing his head off at this).
But I got there, right after I decided to give it just another couple of month.
So my advice to you is a quote by Zara Lockwood: When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.
