So you’ve been working on your blog for a while now and just don’t have the motivation that you had in the beginning. When you started your blog, you were going to make millions in your first year. You were gonna be a star! Now that the initial surge of excitement has warn off, all you can think about when it’s time to write another article is how hard it’s been to get to where you are now.
One thing to keep in mind is that there will always be hardships and disappointments. You will have failures along the way. Even the most successful people in the world have disappointments and will tell you that the key to “getting there” is to never give up. Even when you fail.
Give up the negativity
When you start thinking about how hard it is to “make it”, you may have thoughts like “I’m not good enough, interesting enough, or internet savvy enough”. A lot of people talk themselves down from chasing their dreams by thinking this way.
There are probably a large number of negative things that you tell yourself on a regular basis, without even noticing it. These thoughts can drain any excitement you once had for a project. This may be holding you back from doing the things that need to be done to make your blog a success.
Your hesitation is not there because you’re lazy, or boring, or bad with computers. It’s because you’re telling yourself that you are!
The next time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, notice it, evaluate it, and dismiss if it’s holding you back. Remind yourself that you need to ignore those thoughts if you’re going to be successful and happy which is I think what we are all striving for.
I’m not saying that you should go into denial, if there are things that you need to fix, then fix them. Otherwise don’t worry so much and remember that there is always room for improvement.
That is my pep talk for the day.
