3 Questions to ask when the process becomes too much

You know what gets me?

When I come up with a brilliant idea and when I start to work on it, it feels impossible.  Reminds me of Issa this season on Insecure.

After attending Coachella, Issa thought it would be dope to have a block party (black Coachella) in Inglewood. Issa knew that she could pull this event off within a month.  Excited about her new venture she went downtown to complete the necessary paperwork.  That’s when she found out that there were additional permits that she would need (and A LOT of them).  Still, Issa was a little down but not completely out of the game.  Well, that was until she started to visit local businesses for sponsorships and donations. Rejections after rejection, nobody jumped on board. She started to feel that she bit off more than she could chew.  Issa was completely OVER the idea.  What was once a huge dream that she wanted to come true now seemed like an impossible task and she was ready to throw in the towel.

You may be feeling the same way.  You had something that you were once on fire for but the process has been is harder than you expected. Which has left you discouraged.  You gave it a try, and because it was tough, you gave up on it. 

Before you throw in the towel, I want you to ask yourself these questions and reconsider and give it another shot.

“I don’t harp on the negative because if you do, then there’s no progression.  There’s no forward movement.  You got to always look on the bright side of things, and we are in control.  Like, you have control over the choices you make.”Taraji P. Henson
