Everyone gets tired, Even your hopes
Doing the work is tiring.
It does not always go to plan…
We may fail and we may fall,
We will definitely experience tiredness and fatigue…
But if we have started the work then no matter how tired we become, We will have made progress…
But if all your doing is sitting around, Hoping for change, Then eventually you are going to give up hope, and you will have made no progress and watched time just pass by…
You’re going to get tired no matter what, So you might as well become tired doing something.
For those familiar with dating apps, You’ll know it’s all about getting a match now,
Meaning you both swipe right on each other, which allows you to message one and another.
But just because you have a match, does mean you have a date, a partner or even an F-buddy if that’s what you’re after,
There is still a lot of work to be done.
The same is applied in business or even in health
Just because you have a new lead does not mean you have a new customer,
Just because you have a gym membership does not mean you are fit and healthy…
We need to work, and work hard to convert our matches into something,
And a lot of the time they amount to nothing (In my experience anyway :/)
Don’t cheat the world of your contribution. Give it what you’ve got
– Steven Pressfield
We’re not going to be a hit overnight
Our work may go unnoticed for a very long time.
We may feel like we’re getting nowhere
But one day all of a sudden something might change.
But it never will if we give up on day 2.
If we wait till we’ve worked those overtime shifts
Or we have all our ducks in a row.
Because it never will happen.
So get in your office, workshop, studio or wherever you produce your art and Do the work.
Because your contribution matters.
Especially more than ever today.
The Idea Of Change & Change are completely different.
We all think about change,
We all talk about change,
How we are going to do something…
But how much of what we say do we actually do…
Not a lot.
Because we like the idea, but we don’t like the work, the effort required or the commitment.
If you actually want to change, we have to change.
We have to do that work required.
The picture isn’t reality.
You can put a dog,cat, rabbit… whatever in a picture and they look cute.
You can see a couple in a photo and think they are a dream couple and wish you had what they had
Pictures are captured in a second and a normally staged.
The reality is yeah pets are cute, but you still have to pick up their shit.
Yeah the couple may look cute and dreamy and you might resent your partner for not living up to that fantasy,
The reality though that couple didn’t even connect on that vacation, they spent it just posing for that one perfect picture
Stop basing your dreams on pictures you see,
They dont share the full story, they don’t share even half of it.
In life if you want something you have to do the work, and that work isn’t pretty. That work isn’t something you’ll see on social media.
Tune out of your phone and tune in to the real world.
It isn’t pretty, but at least its real
