When you make the choice to follow your dreams, you will be consistently met with other people’s opinions of you, and of how you should run your business. We’ve all heard lines like these before:
“You have to grind your way to the top to even have a chance at making it. You can never take a break. Taking care of yourself is impossible and irrelevant. It’s so much easier to have a normal job. You’re nothing special. You’re not worthy. You’ll not only lose all of your money but also your friends and family.”
Far too often, creators get stuck in the trap of constant content farming. The belief is, “If I don’t put out new content every single day, I will become irrelevant and lose it all.” The reality is, when you drain every ounce of your creative juice into daily content drops, you are putting yourself in an impossible position and stretching yourself too thin. Your content will become watered down, less relevant, and the stress will ultimately take a toll on your health.
For what? To end up broke, alone, and constantly drained? Isn’t that an exact mirror of the office life we ran away from?
Chasing your dreams is supposed to be fun. Putting hours of passion into a project and releasing something you are truly proud of can be catalyzing to your self-image.
Of course, setting healthy deadlines for yourself can be essential. I’m only suggesting that you set deadlines that you can comfortably attain without your health or content suffering.
This also plays into the concept of self-care and self-love. The more you fail, the more you learn how to take care of yourself.
In an age where all information is made available online, we are faced with the mind-blowing realization that no one knows you like you do. There is NO ONE ANYWHERE who can give you an answer key to the tests in your life. There’s no study guide, no SAT prep for these tests. You are solely responsible for choosing your actions and reactions. Alone.
I find it is a much better use of your time to really put your whole heart into a project before releasing it. Sure, there might be weeks or even months between content releases, but if what you create is worth the wait and it is something YOU are truly proud of, who cares?
I started out making content solely aimed at spirituality and consciousness, but as time moves forward, I’m seeing my interests continue to evolve. There are many seemingly irrelevant topics that I am interested in, and I will continue to explore them.
The fun part of being alive is being free to create whatever you desire while juggling the temptation of falling into a box which will limit your true potential.
Never settle for less than who you are.
