If you feel like quitting, think about why you started.
A little over 5 years ago I put myself on the line. I made a big personal and financial commitment and opened Epic Yoga.
I won’t say it’s been easy. Far from it. But during the hard times I think about why I opened Epic and it’s usually enough to cause me to press on.
I’ve learned a ton, laughed a lot and even cried. I’ve made friends, lost friends and sat and wondered what the heck just happened. I’ve heard students say Epic changed and saved their lives and I’ve had a couple people mad at me.
No one warned me it’d be like this and honestly I’m glad they didn’t. Because if I would have known, I likely never would have started.
Someone once said to me, “Don’t despise the days of small beginnings.” How true that is! There are times I’d take the simplicity of the early days in a heartbeat!
Yet I know there are lessons here for me. New challenges and more growth.
If you feel like quitting, think about why you started. Your WHY will give you the strength to stick it out when it feels like the whole world is spinning and you are wondering if it’s “worth it”.
When I look back on the video that tells the story of opening Epic, I smile. I look back at the love, the joy, the dream, and the commitment. I wanted to bring a powerful form of yoga to Brentwood that would transform minds and hearts.
So far, I think we are on the right track.
