I don't know how life was in the past. I'm living now, and this is what I know and have experienced thus far. This time society is in, people seem very weak, sensitive, and impressionable. We have been programmed to believe that nothing we do is enough, and settling for contentment is fine. Why do we believe that? We allow ourselves to dwell in an unsatisfactory place in life. Mediocre, sub-par. (To someone with high standards and expectations).
What keeps us from chasing our dreams? Why do we feel the need to be perfect at a task right from the get go? Where did the ideal go that you have to study, research, and WORK for something? Why don't I already know how to do a certain task? Well, Sarah.. because you've never done it before! Have you practiced? Have you learned this? Have you listened to a podcast, attended a class, watched a video, read a book or 10? We need to stop assuming that if we don't already know how to do something that it's unattainable! Myself included, I'm guilty of recent procrastination and distraction. I'm living this now.
Make a GOAL LIST. Dream big. Rewrite it every day, and set a time frame for yourself. I'm already learning working for yourself is hard. No beating around that bush. It's very easy to put things off because there's no one telling you that you can't go do something instead of working. But if you want to be successful, sacrifice now and prioritize your business. Of course, allow yourself time to decompress and stay healthy in the mind and body. But don't disappear on yourself for days on end. If you're not going to do it, who will? Nothing will grow if you don't water it.
These are thoughts for myself to look back on, and thoughts to share with you. Work towards your dreams every, single, day. No time off. If you haven't achieved anything, why are you allowed to celebrate? It's called discipline, and people bound for great success have it. FOCUS. $500.00 in sales is NOTHING when you can have $5,000 in sales, $50,000 in sales. Hell, $5,000,000. Stop celebrating pennies and BE GREAT. Work hard, and be consistent.
GET MOTIVATED. BE THE BEST. Go out and get 'em!
