The Complexities of Life

No: The Great Motivator

The Recovering Pessimist: No: The Great Motivator -- When you work days, months, even years towards a goal just to hear "no", it tears you apart. Allow yourself to go through the emotions, then pick yourself up and get back to work. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistImagine having a goal you want to accomplish. Doesn’t matter if it’s big or small. What matters is that you want it and you want it really bad. You’ve worked towards it for days, months, and even years.

Now imagine that today is the day when you find out if your hard work will accomplish your goal. You’re on pins and needles waiting. Stomach in knots, heartbeat racing and then…


You start feeling devastated, heartbroken, pissed. That’s ok.

You may ask yourself why this is happening. That’s ok.

You may want to throw things. That’s ok.

You may not know what to do. That’s ok.

It’s okay to want and feel all of those things and more. However, I don’t want you to give up, okay? No hurts, but it hurts more to give up. Let that no motivate you to pick up where you left off and keep going.

You’ve come too far to quit now.

You got this.
