Had A Bad Day?
Have you ever felt like you just wanted to throw up your hands and say, “I surrender! This online business stuff just isn’t gonna work!” Well, I for one know the feeling; and guess what? So does every other entrepreneur out there! Everyone has a bad day…week…month. What makes the difference is what you do with that feeling….
Step One: Own It!
It’s okay to admit you feel beaten. Every human being on the planet feels this way now and then. So, go ahead and say it, “I am done! I give up!” Now, pat your determination on the back and say, “Nice knowin’ ya!”
Step Two: Keep The Wallowing To A Minimum!
Ok, now that you have completed step one, it’s time to suck it up and realize that stuff happens. So you had a bad day! So you didn’t get a single lead! It’s the second week in a row without any sales! Does all that matter? No. It doesn’t matter because it is simply part of the game. That’s right, see it as a game. Did you win every game when you were young (and winning doesn’t include getting a trophy simply for showing up!)? Probably not. Well, you’re not going to win every game in adulthood either and you need to accept that and move on!
Step Three: Write!
Yep, that’s what I said, write. Write down at least three things you’re going to do tomorrow to try to improve your marketing/sales/prospecting/whatever. Once you have it written down, be sure to put it where you will see it the next day and then forget it! I know that’s easier said than done, but do it anyway. It’s like the monkey with its hand stuck in the jar. He ain’t going to get anywhere as long as he keeps holding onto the banana. And you won’t get anywhere as long as you hold onto the defeat!
Step Four: Do Something Different!
The next day you need to get up and look at your “three things” note to yourself. Do what you wrote and be sure that you do something different today. If you keep doing what doesn’t work, you’ll keep getting what doesn’t profit. Pretty much common sense, huh!
The main thing I want to convey here is perseverance. Having a bad day now and then is NOT failure…giving up because you’ve had one too many bad days is! Hang in there my little monkey and you WILL find success!

When Things Are Going Wrong!
This is a sensible article for moms out there who are struggling and things are going wrong…check it out and let us here at Get the Most know what you think!

When everything in life seems to be going wrong, take one look at what you did right (your kids), to remind you it was all worth it. We all have those days when everything seems to be going wrong when no matter what we do we feel its just not enough. It’s during these dark moments that we feel failures but it’s during these times that we need to look at the things we did get right, our children.
I run a support group for mothers on Facebook and face a daily tirade of problems and demons that mothers face and the strength and courage these women possess is beyond words, they fight their own battles yet support other mothers having a difficult time and the one thing that binds us together is our children, without them many of us would have given up a long time ago, I know I would have.
There are days when just getting out of bed is a struggle but we have to when we are mothers. Our children are our protectors, they give us the strength to carry on when we feel we can not. Just because we are a mother doesn’t mean we don’t become depressed and feel like ending our own lives, depression is an illness that changes our rational thinking. Mothers who think of taking their own lives are not selfish, they are mentally ill.
I sadly speak with too many mothers who feel suicide is their only option, it’s during these dark conversations that I need them to think of their children as I know that’s the only thing keeping them alive, I have faced this dark time myself and I know the only way to keep them from hurting themselves is to ask them to go and sit beside their child and look into their eyes, to see that despite them feeling that everything is wrong, they got something right.
I suppose it’s an emotional blackmail trick I play, but it’s one that has kept me alive.
I understand how it feels to believe your children would be better off without you, that’s how depression makes you feel, worthless. If you ever feel this way please speak with a health professional because depression can be treated, you do not have to suffer this alone.
When Everything In Life Seems To Be Going Wrong, Hold On
Nothing lasts forever, not even depression, I promise you that with the right people beside you things will get better, you won’t always feel this way, there sure is light at the end of the tunnel. When you feel that things are falling apart look at your beautiful children and see how amazing you are, they think you’re perfect and you are because you have given up your own wants to ensure they get theirs met.
As a mother, you have a responsibility to be the best mother you can be and sometimes that means asking for help.
You don’t have to put on a brave face, you’re allowed to cry, it’s a great way to deal with those built up emotions. Contrary to popular belief, crying is not a sign of weakness, instead, it is a mark of staying strong for too long.
Remind yourself that there are many reasons for you to feel grateful.
Please don’t ever feel that things are too bad to go on, reach out and grab someone’s hand. When everything in life seems to be going wrong take a look into your child’s eyes and see how much they love you and need you to keep fighting on.
Hey, Moms. I know you are out there having bad days and troublesome moments, but like she says here, it WILL pass and you can get help! As a Christian, I feel the need to add this: keep loving and praying and God will get you through!!
