Will i ever manage to achieve my goals??

When we've been working hard at something for a long time, yet we keep suffering setbacks and difficulties - we tend to question why we're even bothering. We yearn for a breakthrough - but there isn't one in sight.

If we let these thoughts consume us, it can be very hard to get back on track. Especially, as society gives us a big, shiny, neon exit sign: give up, blame someone else for your failure and be a victim.

Tony Robbins says the quality of your life is directly proportional to the quality of the questions you ask yourself: 'Why am i even bothering? 'Will i ever get where i want to be?' are such rubbish questions to ask yourself. Maybe you will get there, maybe you won't - but it's not down to you to make the decision here and now. This is a decision for the world at large - not you! And definitely not you, when you're alone in your room, upset and downing a bottle of pinot grigio. Sorry dude, it's just not your call.

So shhhh your chatterbox... stop asking yourself dumb questions (which are only going to take you down a path of extreme negativity). And busy your hands and mind by shooting the thing in front of you. Immerse yourself in whatever needs to be done right now and get the hell BACK TO WORK. Because, if you ask the general public what the definition of 'success' is - i'm pretty sure the consensus would settle along the lines of a single theme: not giving up when things get tough, not throwing in the towel when your luck is down and staying loyal to your ambitions.

And remember, if something is taking a long time to come together - it's probably actually worth doing! It's these quick and easy wins that are usually the bringers of doom (how many lottery winners have committed suicide in the last couple of years?)

I presume you've ended up on this weblog entry because you're in frustrated place right now. Therefore, let me recount the words of people wiser than I:
