Success ChallengeWelcome to this episode of Live Better with your host, Yasmin Shiraz. We’re in week 6 of our Success Challenge. Hopefully, you’ve seen some results in your work and in the seeds you’ve been planting. Hopefully, you have the courage to hang in here with me for another week. But as I think about week 6, I have three questions for you:


1. Do you ever feel like giving up?

2. Do you ever ask yourself what’s the point?

3. Do you ever look at other people’s progress and say, “Why them and not me?”

If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you’re going to love the message of this week’s episode. The message for this week is to: Keep Going. A couple of weeks ago, I submitted a script to a writing opportunity and forgot a document. I submitted the document a day later, but I really beat myself up about it. But, in the end, I realized that I had to just keep going.
Let me give you another example, Sometimes I’ve wondered if writing the posts on my website have made a difference to anyone. Sometimes, I wonder, “Is anyone reading this?” Of course, I know they are because I check my website statistics. But, do they care? I want to think that people care about the articles that they read on my sight. And, you know what? Just last week I received an email from someone who thanked me for all of the extra articles and information that I’ve been putting on my site. I wasn’t going to give up on my site, but it felt good to know SOMEONE in cyber space cared enough to send me a message.
And, here’s a third example, I don’t speak about my filmmaking much on this podcast. But, I produce documentaries and videos. I’ve seen colleagues of mine win awards and I’ve wondered, why not me? But, then I’ve also won awards and I’ve also been a part of the film crew who has won  multiple awards. So, I’m thankful for that and must keep my perspective. And, I can’t give up on my films, I must keep going.
So, I want to say to everyone out here who has accepted this challenge: You must keep going. Even if you haven’t yielded the results that you desire, you must keep going. Even if you haven’t reached all of your goals, you must keep going. Even if you look over and think someone is moving much faster than you are, you must keep going.
The message in this episode is simple. Keep Going.
