“Failure is Simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.”
– Henry Ford
Why is it I keep failing? I must be doing something wrong but what is it? Maybe I just haven’t learned how to succeed yet?
That’s it! I started this blog only 4 months ago but I have been putting in quite a bit of work on it. I realize now though, I stopped looking at what my goals were/are for it. I have gotten way off track and I have let my Writing fall by the wayside. I have no system set up and so I am failing at my task. I also haven’t been writing anywhere else either. But, I am not stopping anytime soon. I just have to change something I am doing now.
So, maybe what I need to do is branch out more. Make more connections, really grow into freelancing. There are just so many options and not enough time to look through them all. Then I thought maybe I am looking too far, maybe I need to just stick to right here and grow my own blog. I will admit I was getting a little bit worried that what I was doing was for nothing. It’s just silly. It will never come to be anything. I think a lot of “successful” people feel this way when they started too though but they just kept going. I know I have read the stories. It’s one thing to see the stories and another to try and live them. I can clearly see why people stop when they become discouraged. It’s not easy. And it seems a lot of times when you start something great or that could be great people will doubt you. They will tell you it will never work or never be anything. Sometimes people will even pretend they want you to succeed and are just waiting for you to fail. Those are the saddest of the sad. I want to let anyone reading this to know it’s not true. Giving up on something you want to do is the ONLY way you could ever fail. This is what keeps me going a lot of the time. I may be making slow progress or …. not even slow, but just not as fast as some other freelancers but that is not going to make me doubt myself so much that I quit. You shouldn’t either. I need to simply step back and plan again. I guess it’s kind of like writing. You have to keep drafting, editing, proofreading,… and eventually, you’re going to finish. With that said I am going to be writing a whole lot more here and not worry about writing anywhere else. Maybe that is something I can do later on. Hopefully, I am inspiring and motivating others. Thanks for reading.
