What To Do When You Feel Like Giving Up
The Steps To Success
I hope you’re having an incredible day. The CreateU Experience is here to take your vision and ignite everything, ignite your breakthrough, ignite the process, ignite the strategies maybe that are creeping up in your mind that you’re not putting into play. I want you to take the next step and to be able to achieve everything that you’ve ever thought possible. It’s going to be an incredible day so just believe. Let’s get right into it. If you’re anyone that’s reading, remember if you do review the podcast on iTunes, throw your email in there. I am going to send you access to my meal plans, all free. A bunch of different things, a business builder, a checklist and so much more. We’re also across all audio platforms. On YouTube, we try to be there every Tuesday. What we’re going to do every Quicktime Friday is tap into some new topics, something different, something exciting.
I want to tap into when you feel like giving up. Do you ever feel so heart wrenched? Do you ever feel your heart’s just beating out of your chest because you’re afraid, you’re fearful? Maybe you’re exhausted, you feel like giving up. Everything is crumbling around you. Maybe someone betrayed you, your mom left you, your dad wasn’t there, whatever it is you’re going into anything. You’re going into a big test. You want to become a doctor and this is the last thing you have to pass and you feel like giving up. All of the hard work, the losses, the mistakes, the failures, they’re right there in front of your face. What are you going to do? I know I felt that in so many different aspects of my life. I made an investment into an apparel company a long time ago at $5,000 to $10,000 and it failed. I spent $27,000 on an app and it failed. Year after year I’ve been trying to build a team and it failed again and again. When I felt like giving up, I tapped in a little deeper.Your vision is more important than anything else in your life.

When I felt like giving up, I looked at all the mistakes and right there at that moment I asked myself, “Why has this happened? Why do I feel like giving up? Why do I feel like I can’t make it right now?” The truth is I didn’t think that I could make it at certain points and I felt like giving up in certain points in time because it took a lot. It took a lot of energy. It took a lot of friendships, trust and things that just made me uncomfortable. The truth is once you get comfortable with the uncomfortable, the “un” of the uncomfortable is no longer there and never will be there in any aspect of your life because you’re familiar. You’ve created a habit. When you feel like giving up, I want you to do something.
I want you to tap in a little deeper and ask yourself one question, “Why do I feel like this?” It could be you don’t want to disappoint someone. It could be you’ve been doing this for so long and you’re exhausted. It could be whatever comes up for you, but you’ve got to remember your vision is more important than anything else in your life. I say that very loosely because if you’re going to save someone’s life, there’s a complete different side of things right there. I want you to engrain this message into your mind. I’m going to ask you a question. What would you attempt to do if you could not fail? Remember, this question isn’t meant to be answered with a direct response.When you give up, your vision dies.

“I would be a clown hanging from the Empire State Building.” No, it’s nothing like that. It is day-by-day. For me, I’d wake up every single morning at 5:30. For me, I’d spend all day writing out my plans, testing the market, risking my money and investing. If someone told me there’s a cool opportunity in Pennsylvania right now, I’d be there. If someone said there’s a cool opportunity in Austin, Texas, in Dallas, Texas, in Houston, Texas, I’d be there. If someone said there’s a great opportunity in Denver, Colorado, I’d be there. The truth is this all has happened and it’s because I looked at my situation, my life, and I’ve lived by something every single day and it’s literally that question to myself, “Brendan, what would you attempt to do if you could not fail?”
When you feel like giving up, you push further. When you feel like giving up, you achieve something new. When you feel like giving up, you learn more. When you feel like giving up, you don’t fucking give up. You keep going and going. That difference between the absolute greatest “superhuman” people in this world, the guys and the girls that have accomplished things that are unimaginable compared to the great ones is one factor. They never stop. They keep going and going and they experience something that they’ve never experienced before because they’ve tested new waters. There is no ceiling. They’re not living in an apartment building with a ceiling above their head. No, they’re living outdoors. They’re grounded.
They’re feeling every ounce of their power and exceeding all expectations, even their own expectations. It’s just because they keep going. I cannot explain to you how many times in my life I’ve been tested or failed or I’ve made a mistake and I kept on pushing through. I kept on pushing through it. Even when I first started on Facebook and I was posting every single day a new blog post. I had my website, All Core Society. I was super excited. I was like, “I love bodyweight training. I want everybody to hear about this.” Nobody was going to it. Very few 20, 30 views on my blog posts a day, but I kept going. When I kept on going, one person at a time started to keep up with it and they told their friend. They said, “Remember that Brendan kid, what’s he doing?”
As people were asking questions, it went from 30, 40, 50, 100, 150, 1,000, 5,000 to 10,000 views. It kept on going up and up. It’s because I never stopped. When you feel like giving up, remember this. When you give up, your vision dies. You can resurrect your vision but it’s going to be a lot tougher than if you just went through that pain, that frustration or that setback in your life. When you feel like giving up, you take the next step. When you feel like giving up, you push that much harder. When you feel like giving up, you take another step on that StairMaster. When you feel like giving up, you go and take your greens in the morning.
When you feel like giving up, you talk to your mom. When you feel like giving up, you talk to someone that makes you feel uncomfortable, something that puts you in this weird situation. When you feel like giving up, you post more, you show up more, you bring more value. It’s the only way to do it. Your vision is in front of you and it’s ignited, but what are you going to do with that ignition? Are you just going to sit there or are you going to keep on adding wood to the fire? I say you keep on adding weight to the fire and go get some marshmallows because we’re about to toast some great shit up. You have the opportunity right in front of you with everything you’ve got. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a mom, if you don’t have a dad. It doesn’t matter if you got broken up with or you were diagnosed with a serious disease or illness.
I got off the phone with my very good friend. He had brain cancer. He survived. He has 150,000 followers. I believe he’s going to be a part of CreateU Nutrition and I am so inspired by his story because he never fucking gave up. When he got the diagnosis, he said, “It’s time to push. It’s time to be great. It’s time to do things that the doctors are saying aren’t possible.” He fought through chemo and he made that shit happen. Not only has he made it happen for himself, but he’s made it happen for hundreds of thousands of people all around the world. When you feel like giving up, just put your hand out and grab. It’s as simple as that. Do the uncomfortable. Get used to the uncomfortable and form a new habit. It’s in you. It’s in your DNA. You’ve got to recognize it. It’s ignited, and now it’s your breakthrough to be had. Thanks for reading another episode of the CreateU Experience. This is another Quicktime Friday, one of my favorites. Go be great, would you? We’ll talk next time.
