When life becomes difficult you have two choices. Give in or move forward.
Unfortunately there are situations in life that require us to give in in order to move forward. Things such as ending an unpleasant relationship either in business or personally, closing the door on a losing business venture or changing a troubled environment.
You are not “quitting” or “giving in”, you are altering your choices to hopefully move forward in the best way you know how.
The important thing is to realize that your “mission” in life may not be what you think it is. You may not be destined to be the top salesperson or the lead in the play. You may be destined for other things and in order to get there, you have to let go of the ones that don’t fit.
Maybe instead of the top salesperson you are supposed to be the top caregiver for an elderly person who has no one. Maybe instead of a lead in the play you are supposed to be the lead counselor at a camp for disabled youth.
It may not be where you see yourself, but maybe it is where you will do the most good and find the most personal value.
