Don’t Quit Before 1000


Sticking with anything long enough is the primary challenge people have when creating on the internet. When they reach day 50, talented, competent, and enthusiastic creators give up. Tragically, that is.

When creating on the internet, the largest challenge for most people is perseverance. Talented, competent, and driven creators reach day 50 and give up. It is tragic. Being on the verge of striking gold but giving up just before is similar to the image. Let me share with you what I’ve learned after 1000 days of online creation.

Not either of those. People prefer to polarise everything in their minds. Write online at 5 a.m. every morning, or give up entirely. Start your diet by solely consuming fruits and veggies, or go KFC crazy. But the average middle has a lot going for it. I don’t get up at five o’clock every morning. I gave it a try, it worked for a while, then it stopped working, so I adjusted. I had days off. At 5:30 a.m., I awoke. It wasn’t until 6:15 am that I started writing. That’s okay, that’s what you need to hear. It’s acceptable and goes along with being human.

The terrible days will feel like a roiling pot of feelings. similar to a stomach blow. especially if you weren’t planning on having them. Layers of disappointment are baked into the birthday cake as a result of makers’ success. In my experience, the down days immediately follow the highs. How do you respond to that? As you do with everything else, I suppose.

It’s approval – We need to talk to each other about two topics – The thing. your reaction to it. You’re having a rough day, which is fine. Welcome to online creation. The choice is yours, though. You can lose your temper, slam a book shut, throw your papers to the ground, and mope around on the couch. And on certain days, the doctor’s prescription was followed exactly. But on some days, you just need a little reality. Read this: it is intended for this to occur. Even the world’s top teachers, entrepreneurs, and writers occasionally have terrible days. Just because you’re having a bad day doesn’t make you special. It is inherent in the situation. Accepting that you are having a poor day, you can nevertheless create. You have the option to turn up and acknowledge that today isn’t the best.

It’s a lengthy game; if you boil the pot of emotions long enough, fear will be the one that remains. the profound knowledge that, despite your best efforts, you might not be successful. You are consumed by that ominous thinking. When you build, it is concealed. Your pecking voice is the one that tells you it’s not worthwhile. I’ve visited there a lot. I believe everything is destined to fail, even my business and my writing. The goal is to use this voice to your advantage and offer yourself more justifications for creating. Keep hold of that. Hopefully, you’ll come to the realisation that one of the reasons you create online is to feel content. That feeling cannot be taken away by a number.

The crucial point. This is a marathon of a thing. Sprinting is not something marathoners do every day. They require food and relaxation. Making things online isn’t all that different. Only after you decide to shut the laptop and never open it again do you hang your shoes up. If you don’t give in to that, you’ll play long enough to improve.

Listen, I know it’s terrifying, unpleasant, and extremely distressing right now, but you’ll be OK. This is something you must do for yourself. You must go beyond what is known and strive to believe that you will be fine no matter what. Even if things don’t work out. Even if you don’t find what you’re looking for, it’s still a good thing to show that you tried. It is with this thought I introduce my new book “Acceptance”. Hope we find the courage to accept what is.

    Can relate to that. But what if we are not seeking online recognition but rather to learn to love being nothing? Loving being nothing may not be a popular goal but when you’ve had failure after failure, it seems like a worthy one.

    ” Just because you’re having a bad day doesn’t make you special.”

    Love that. 👆 And it could be applied to any kind of bad day.

    I can’t tell you how many bloggers I formed blogging relationships with that have come and gone. I sometimes wonder whatever happened to them and what they’re doing now.

    KFC? Blech! 😉
