Strange title to a blog right?
Not really when I put it into perspective for you fellas.
Where Have You Been
Some people are asking, why haven’t you blogged others mutter, the reason is simple and a great lesson for everyone. I was on my way to the stars, hitting targets and starting new projects left right and centre. Things were exciting and flowing but then suddenly I lost momentum and starting hurtling towards the ground fast. My “hot air balloon” ride was slowing down and fighting resistance as it went up higher and higher. All of a sudden the balloon lost its pressure and went floppy, boom I was deflated.
Addicted To The Rush
Call it an addiction or a need to feel that excitement when everything is new and happening for you as you take on a new project. You have projected success, wealth and happiness to come at you from all angles and fast. When it doesn’t happen the way you planned you start asking questions like:
- Have I done enough?
- Is my content interesting?
- Do people like me?
- Is it all a scam?
- Does this blog even make it to browser searches?
- Do I like what I’m doing?
- Am I an idiot thinking I could make it?
- Have I wasted money?
Recognising The Ups And Downs
This is important in most things in life, learning enough about yourself to recognise an emotional trend as it starts then immediately trying to process it and soften the blow.
I am no guru on this but I have already began noticing when the self talk kicks in, coming with it is an attack from little mental soldiers carrying bazookas blowing all your positive thoughts into tiny unrecognisable pieces.
You can then focus picking up those small pieces of hope, imagination, love and excitement and backing yourself as someone who can achieve anything.
Many of the “Gurus” I listen too which are proven to be successful say it takes 5 – 10 years to get the success you long for. It’s not you who fails it may just be a business or plan that failed. So start another and crack on sunny.
In short You shouldn’t expect success instantaneously, You should not be doing it unless you are enjoying it and
Remember to check and back yourself and don’t give up!
I hope you find this helpful, I am a little rusty.
