Hey, guys. I know I know, it’s been a while. I haven’t written a full post in about a month and a half. I had the worst case of writer’s block. For some reason, I can only write when I’ve had a great debate and came to a decisive conclusion. But for some reason, that hasn’t happened in a while. Most of the discussions I’ve been having have ended in “it depends.” I went week to week without putting pen to paper. (Or fingers to keyboard, but you know what I meant.)
I started to reflect on my goals for the year — get more clients, check; eat better, eh; save more, eh; read more, eh; write more, EH. You get the picture, I fell off. I wasn’t putting in the work I said I would to reach any of my goals. While I’d like to blame the lack of time or distractions from family and friends, I really could only blame myself. I allowed things that weren’t helping me to reach any of my goals get in the way. Well, this weekend Auntie Maxine got me in check. THIS IS MY TIME, and I’m going to stop allowing things that aren’t pushing me towards my goals to have my time. I have goals that I have to put in work for; so, I’m reclaiming my time.
From now on, I WILL eat healthier food; I WILL save more money; I WILL read every day; I WILL write once a week. Consistency is the only way to succeed, so if I want to get better at any of these, I have to put effort into actually getting better consistently.
Falling off and getting back on track is semi-normal; it happens. I’m the type of person that gives up too soon; if my article doesn’t get enough views I become disappointed in myself, and I don’t want to write anymore. While I think wanting better is normal, becoming disheartened so easily is counterproductive to my efforts. Failure is part of the process, and as I’ve said before, it’s important to trust the process. I just have to keep at it, stay motivated, and most importantly, DON’T QUIT.
