Keeping It Up
It is easy to start something new. Anybody can become an entrepreneur, singer, writer, designer, illustrator or whatever. But few can keep it going.
Many people start businesses but they don’t exist after a year or two. It appears that people put too much emphasis on starting something and do not always know how to keep it going. Look at our aspirant writers; they start off at breakneck speed; writing for days, weeks or even months. Then, suddenly they drop everything to do something else and blame it to a lack of inspiration but that is not it. The truth is they don’t know what to do next.
Most of our stress is born from the uncertainty of the future. What will happen tomorrow, next week, next month, next year? Friends and family can spend the entire day to convince you that the world will not end tomorrow but you won’t listen to a single word if you are in the wrong frame of mind. The answer is to concentrate on the present. Think about what to do next. Not next as in the next few months but next such as in immediately now. Forget about the past and disregard the future. Make the best of NOW! So okay, maybe the world will end tomorrow but don’t waste your time on shit you cannot control
Don’t set goals that you cannot achieve on your own. You don’t want other people to control your destiny. It is your life; drive it yourself. Don’t give the wheel to somebody else. Focus on the things you can control. Be flexible. Shift the goalposts if you must. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Keep on experimenting and adjusting. If it does not work you can always fall back to the old ways. The secret is to keep going, never to let up.
Now make your day worth the while.
