I came across this picture and it gave me a great perspective on how big things have come from the modest of places – like a garage. How amazing is this picture?! What more motivation does one need?! I’ll be honest, I stared at it for quite some time.
If there’s one thing you and I have in common is that there’s always something that is holding us back. We want to do something, great or small, but we create excuses that keep us from getting it done.
What do you want to do?
Where do you want to go?
How will you get there?
… What’s holding you back?
What’s holding me back? …. It’s either my illness, my family or some other excuse that I allow to convince me, that now is not the time.
I was once in a place where I felt stuck, frozen and hesitant about taking the next step.
I was ‘thinking’ about creating a YouTube channel, if you are too, I’d say, ‘just go for it.’
Or ‘thinking’ about creating a blog, if you are too, I’d say, ‘just go for it.’
Or ‘thinking’ about creating an online store, if you are too, I’d say, ‘just go for it.’
Or say an Instagram account, if that’s you, I’d say, ‘just go for it.’
Because the growth will probably be slow and the learning will take some time, but all that matters is that you’re doing what you’re passionate about – continue to grow, continue to learn, and let’s be honest eventually the money will come.
Lastly, if you’re living with chronic pain like I am, be patient. Our bodies are not what they were before our diagnosis, your body will guide you, get things done when you can – or pain levels allow, prioritize things, create a schedule for yourself – even if it’s one task a day. You’ll see that slowly but surely things will come together and things will get done.
Do you struggle with staying motivated? What keeps you moving?
