For some reason, this whole blogging thing is not coming as naturally to me as I thought. I keep sitting down in different parts of my house at different times thinking that if I can just find my zen that the writing will come naturally to me.
But it just hasn’t yet, thus emphasizing the lesson that I am learning about self discipline and working even when I don’t “feel inspired”
I really don’t “feel” like writing at all.
HOWEVER, the whole reason I started this blog is to create a space were people can be authentic, and find success authentically. I want to be and facilitate conversations and places that are on another level. Words, stories, songs, projects that all point to genuine happiness and the greater good.
And that all starts here, with me sitting here making myself do what I am supposed to be doing, even though I don’t feel like it right now.
It’s a common misconception that if you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, that it “never feels like work”
This I have found to be partially true, but leaves out a major part of the story.
What I think the experts and success stories in our lives are trying to tell us is that walking in your gifts isn’t soul sucking like a “job” would be. This much is true, I don’t think that anyone could argue with that.
BUT, what they often gloss over are the moments when you really just don’t feel like working on your passion project because of (fill in the blank) reason. They don’t talk about how REAL the self doubt and objections feel, or how they had days where they didn’t spend any time moving towards their goals at all.
So many people never ever talk about the really real mental battle that entrepreneurship can be and often is.. This brings us back to the point of this post:
Watching the interview in the link below with Lilly Singh* was truly such a breath of fresh air for me. It was so refreshing to hear her acknowledge the fact that she has bad days too, and that there are no “tips or tricks for success”-just a lot of hard work. Hard work on a mental, spiritual, and physical level is what takes you where you want to go.
This interview is absolutely fabulous and an absolute honor to watch. Shout out to Tom Bilyeu* for consistently creating fabulous content with some of the coolest people on the planet.
Watch the damn video, take notes, and have a killer week! Cheers!
