Pushing Past Giving Up

That's it. You give up. Give in. Give out.

For most people - and if you aren't most people I need to hear from you - there comes a point in driving toward a goal that you throw in the towel. Not always or on every project, but at least once in your life you've probably hit roadblocks so hard, depressing and flattening that you lose the desire to even keep going.

Yes, we all know you have to keep pushing and working at it, but what happens when you do keep at it, and keep at it, and keep at it...and nothing changes.

That fire you had, the desire to achieve that goal, the passion for what it meant you, all seem to extinguish.

At least it did for me.

I find I'm just going through the motions. Still doing those things I "need" to do to achieve the goal but I'm feeling resigned that I'll never get there. I DON'T LIKE IT BUT I CAN'T FIND MY FIRE.

So I'm asking for real insight. What do you do to reignite your passion for something? And I don't mean "just keep going." I am going, but without conviction.

So team, any advice on pushing past giving up and finding your purpose again?
