Even When You Don’t Feel Like It You Have To Keep Going.

Published

Todays one of those days I don’t feel like blogging.

You probably have those days too where you don’t feel like it.

It’s okay because none of us are machines and there will be times when we just want to chill out and relax.

There’ll be times where you think “What’s the point?”

That’s that negative self-talk you have play in your mind when you sit down to work on your passion. Your brain tells you “Who’s listening anyway? What’s the point?”

And maybe sometimes your brain is right. That doesn’t mean you give up.

Today I didn’t want to do it and I did it anyway.

And if I feel like this again tomorrow I’m going to do the same.

“The habit is more important than the work itself.”

Staying on the path towards your goals is the hard part. Naturally, if you practice as much as you can then someday you’ll do well, and other days you’ll suck. You can’t always control the outcome but you can control the habit of practicing your craft.

Some of the best stuff I’ve produced has come from bad days.

The days when I suck the most have created some of my career highlights. That’s because when you’re in the “I don’t care what happens” mindset, you become your most creative. You inspire people without realizing it.

Always trying to be too purposeful can suck the creativity out of you.

Creativity comes from flow states and these can be produced on your best days and on your worst. I’ll say it again: The practice is way more crucial than any other factor.

If it weren’t challenging, we’d all have an Oscar.

Winning an Oscar is difficult and so it is achieving your goals. If it were easy, we’d all have an Oscar and be living in the Hollywood Hills sipping Gin N Juice with Snoop Doggy Dog. The harsh reality is that nothing comes without pain and suffering.

Now I know you think I’m preaching and saying the same old stuff, and you’re probably right. Sometimes you have to hear the truth and hear it over and over to get the message. I knew for years I needed to start exercising again and it was only until I read a book that highlighted why I should join the gym again that did I took action.

To put that in perspective, I procrastinated for 5 years on the thought of exercising properly again.

That’s why you need to hear me say again that you have to keep going even though you don’t feel like it. It’s on the days where you experience the most pain that you’ll also get the biggest growth.

Today sucks a bit for me and tomorrows a new day. I’m not going to stop blogging and you shouldn’t stop working on your dream either.
