Today I was tempted to forgo writing a post today.
It wouldn’t have been a big deal.
In fact, according to Google Analytics, there are only about half a dozen people that stumble upon this blog each day. In terms of numbers, it’s pretty pathetic.
But I’m not doing this for anyone else, and this is key.
I’m doing this for me.
If others come here and get something out of these short posts, that’s amazing.
But at this point, I’m still a nobody.
I predict however, those numbers will start rising as I achieve more success.
That’s just how it works.
When you get a “real job” and post it on facebook, you get all kinds of congratulations, hundreds of likes. Everyone is glad for you and show it.
When you quit your job, it’s not like that at all.
They give half-hearted enthusiasm, some more than others, and then it dies down.
I got 17 likes total.
I have 744 friends.
It’s not that they’re not supportive, it’s just that they aren’t convinced.
Once you’re on top though, everyone wants to talk to you.
I’ve experienced this from the other side.
I automatically want to associate with and befriend those who are successful. This isn’t a bad thing by any means, it’s just a natural progression.
And when you’re on the bottom, it sucks.
But like any mountain, one step makes little difference, but it gives you a start. Sometimes that’s all it takes to build some momentum. It’s further up than most people venture to go, that’s for sure.
So I sit here writing about how I didn’t want to write this blog.
But honestly, sometimes we just don’t want to do things, even if they are good for us. Good for business. Good for our health.
This is the time to DIG.
It’s time to dig deeper and do whatever it takes to achieve something. Anything.
The more times we conquer this urge, the less it will take hold of us.
The more we do anything, the easier it will get, it’s a fact.
I’m one step closer…
