Why do most people quit and why do others hang in there? There are some factors that are reasons why a lot of people quit. In this post, from my experiences, I came up with 5 reasons why people quit their home businesses. So lets go ahead and take a gander at these reasons…
How many of you ever thought of quitting?
This is a common thing amongst us all. I can’t even count the many times I thought about quitting my home business, but yet something inside keeps pushing me.
It seems to me the more consistent and resilient I am, the more I believe I have much more to gain as I go. Do you ever feel like this?
I’m always telling myself a story of what will happen once I reach a certain goal. Even outside of my home business, telling stories to myself keeps me alive and kicking!
But what about you?
Do you feel drained or depressed because things aren’t going your way. Does this influence you to quit? Or do you go deeper into why you started a home business in the first place?
A lot of us don’t want to prove our haters to be right, while others don’t care what our haters think and just keep pushing forward. But what about those that get so fatigue by the hate and failure that they believe their only option is to quit?
When people start thinking about quitting, they turn their focus to limitations. They limit themselves by giving excuses about what they can’t succeed. Stories are self told about their time being wasted, the what ifs about their business not working, the fear of being successful and losing their friends, the money being spent trying to build their businesses, and the list goes on.
So how can you get out of this mental rut?
I believe in order to improve yourself mentally you must have a good understanding why you want to quit. Asking yourself what is it that’s holding you back and how can you neutralize these feelings so that you can move forward? Each time this happens to me, I make a big effort to understand these feelings and figure out a way to cross them out to keep improving. Here are some reasons I came up with why I, as well as others, thought about quitting…
People Aren’t Aligned With Their Business
Did you get into an opportunity because it’s the next best thing since slice bread? Did get involved because the people on your team as well as top earners got involved? If this is the case, this is the wrong reason to get involved. Why? Because you more than likely have the least interest in the business, their products and/or services. Without interest, you have no great reason to promote and really get involved.
You may see a lot of people making a lot of money in it, but that doesn’t mean you are. You want to find something that you resonate well with. This is alignment! The more in tune you are with your business, the greater possibility that you will be successful.
People Have Low Expectations
Starting a home business is a great thing, right? You get to work with people you want, go on trips, and make as much money that you want. The problem is a lot of people that get involved really don’t fully believe it. In fact they have low expectations of what can actually happen for them. Instead, they’re always trying to be “Real” with themselves. Well keep this in mind: Whatever you focus on is what’s being “Real” is all about! Remember the Henry Ford quote “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right!”
There’s No Support
You know what sucks? When you have no support from your friends or family. These people are the ones that suppose to have your back, right? But here’s the thing you got to remember. You got to live your own life! If they’re not going to be supportive of you, find people who will! Educate yourself, motivate yourself, do what you have to do to keep moving because in the end, it’s all on you.
They Don’t Have An Emotional Why
You know the best way to sell is to tap into other peoples emotions. If that’s the case, why not sell yourself by doing the same thing? Why go off of what you been conditioned to believe if it really doesn’t resonate with you? There’s got to be some type of emotions that’s attached to why you’re doing this? This is the fuel that’s going to keep you going!
Challenges Are Considered Obstacles
Perception is everything! You chose your reason why you go forward or go backwards. Either you come across challenges or you come across obstacles. Either way it goes, they’re in the same painting. But remember in science class, two things can’t occupy the same space. You’re either intrigued by the challenge or you’re disenchanted by obstacles.
