I want to start off with thanking anyone who has been reading my content, whether from my site or other Social Media Platforms. I enjoy writing, 1. it helps me release any stress that has been building up over time and 2. I want to capture the attention of my audience with realistic views and actual lessons to learn from in life and not sugar coat it like a-lot of "online gurus". Now let's dive into why you came here in the first place, wait, is this a blog post?? Shit, I forgot what I was going to type...haha Just Kidding. Let's dive in.
One of my favorite Quotes from a well known public figure, Gary Vaynerchuk is this "keep eating the shit", That is nice way of saying, if you haven't felt like giving up on pursuing your dream, you are probably not succeeding currently or doing it correctly, whatever you choose to do in this life whether you decide to work a 9 to 5 or become your own boss, you will always have challenges to face. It's the reality of living. Nothing will ever be that easy.
I am currently in the phase of eating shit as Gary would say, I am new to running an online business and have already ran into a few mistakes, and those mistakes will cause me time and money, but that's a part of growing. Whether you have been in the same job for years, or have been running a successful business for years, you will make several mistakes, even when you think you know it all. Life is unexpected. You can't know what's going to happen tomorrow.
The point of your life is not about you, it's about others. At a young age, I was very selfish and thought nothing or no one else mattered unless things went my way, isn't that just in our nature as a child? As children we wanted to believe that because children are the ones who will grow up to become professionals we need to sustain life here on earth. This is the reason why as a child you had gotten more attention than you do as an adult, not saying no one cares about you as an adult, but it's just that, you are an adult now and are capable of making your own choices and decisions in life. If you need guidance from friends or family, they will be there to give you that advice but don't assume or take it as golden advice, chances are they are speaking from their own experiences. Not everyone goes through the same experiences either, so their advice may not suite your lifestyle.
At the end of the day only you know what is best for "you", by any means don't take that the wrong way and assume being selfish is what I meant. I simply mean that your personal health and happiness is still important while you are able to provide something of value for others. Everyone should be building their personal brand, an example of someone building their personal brand; My brother who was born with Cerebral Palsy enjoys entertaining others and in order to do that in todays day in age, the computer and social media has made it very possible and easy to do so. When he discovered YouTube he always did lip syncing videos or anything that he knew would make the people laugh, he just stopped using YT and the reason was that he let the opinions of others get in the way of entertaining others, Let me make this CRYSTAL CLEAR, 1. People should never make fun of ANYONE, especially if it's a person with special needs, you a certain type of fucked up and need a reality check. 2. If you don't content you are watching, there is a function called X out of the page and find something else "you do like", I swear I should teach people how to be a decent human being... see what those people do to me?? I am off topic now, anyways my Brother just remained on FB where friends and family would like and comment on his entertaining videos, as he enjoyed the positive feedback from friends and family he wanted new fans, he now enjoys entertaining people on TikTok doing hilarious videos and duets with his fans, so far everyone has been nice and you know why that is?? And this is where YT Fails tremendously is that TikTok has way more adults who have the capability to cares about others, YT hasn't managed to weed out the trolls. That is what I mean by personal branding.
When you find something that brings you joy and are passionate about, then turn it into a sustainable income and live the life of freedom you have been searching for this whole time.
