There'll be days you just don't feel like it.
Days when you don't want to get out of bed.
Days when the thought of pushing and fighting and doing it all over again feels like way more than you can handle.
Days when you're questioning every inch of your path.
Who are you, really?
What do you really want?
Where are you really going in life?
Maybe you're totally deluded about this whole entrepreneurship thing? Do you actually have what it takes?
Days when everything you've had to do to get to where you are now all seems pointless, silly, worthless.
If you're a person who's creating a life on your own terms, then you WILL have these days.
Because everything you're doing now is uncertain. No pay check. No one telling you what tasks to carry out and by when. No one giving you appraisals and reviews and patting you on the back for your hard work.
Now it's just you and your overactive mind doing its best to bring you to your knees day in and day out. Now you're free. But freedom has a price.
That price is called responsibility. Now you have to take all the responsibility on your own shoulders. No more hiding. No more blaming. No more waiting for someone else to choose you. Now you have to wake up Monday to Sunday and choose yourself. Every day you have to choose yourself. No one else is going to do it.
There will be days when you want to pack it all in. But in that struggle, know this:
Every entrepreneur is going through the same struggle. There's nothing wrong with you. It doesn't mean you can't do this.
The very fact that you're even attempting to create your life in this way makes you a flipping extraordinary human being. Did you see how many people are too scared to even try? You might fail a million times but you'll never regret the attempts you made.
Everything you feel today will be different tomorrow, or even in a few hours from now. Never believe that your emotions are always telling you the truth. They're not. Just let them be and watch them change. And then tomorrow you'll wonder what on earth you were making such a big fuss about. Am I right? I know that's happened to you too.
So right now, if you're feeling like it's all wrong, that you can't do it, that you'll never get there, that you don't have what it takes, that no one'll buy your thing, that you're not good enough or whatever lies are running through your head right now, hear this message:
You CAN do this.
You DO have what it takes.
And you WILL not give up.
And that's the thing, isn't it? You know you won't give up. So there's really no point wasting your energy wondering whether it'll all work out or not. Because you know you have no choice but to continue anyway.
I'm here. I'm rooting for you. I'm cheering you on. And I'm telling you to get out there and create something today. Anything. For one person. For ten people. For a thousand. Just create something. The energy of creation changes everything.
Love and courage,
