Is It Okay To Throw In The Towel?

Let me be real with you…

Almost in 2010, I was in a really bad situation… $640K in debt, stressed out AF and worried that the economic crash (of 2008) was going to put me under financially and physically.

I was scared.

I didn’t know how I was going to keep running my newly launched franchise Fit Body Boot Camp or pay my mortgage for that matter.

The economy was in the tank.

Businesses were dying off left and right – just like now.

Every day that past, it seemed like it wouldn’t get any better anytime soon.

It was dark times man.

Very similar to what we’re going through now, minus the pandemic.

Right now, you might feel like that it’s time to throw in the towel. Our way of living has almost gone back to caveman times.

The reason why cavemen lived in caves was that everything outside was dangerous and could kill them.

We’re just a modern version of it.

So if you were thinking of waving the white flag of surrender, I understand.

And if throwing in the towel is the right move for you, then I support you.

But is it the right move for you and your family?

Or will you be making a permanent decision while experiencing temporary feelings?

Look, some people are not cut out for certain things.

Like I know for a fact that I’m not cut out to be a doctor.

It’s very academic… and if you know anything about me, I’m not cut out for school or traditional education.

Now let’s change gears…

If you’re saying “fuck that” to giving up.

If you’re willing to stay in the fight.

If you know that this is just a phase of life and that this isn’t the end, then listen up!

Keep pushing.

Keep grinding.

Keep showing up.

This is your time to shine.

Don’t settle for a mediocre life.

Keep doing what you’re doing.

Everything is going to work out.

When this all blows over, and you look back at this ten years later, you can laugh at all this craziness…

…and be grateful for this gift of adversity that helped us become even more resilient and successful moving forward.

And if you’re a weirdo like me who likes to get even faster personal and professional development in life then you might want to consider applying for The Modern Day Knight Project.
