The comfort-zone has really started to pull me back from taking action towards accomplishing my goal of writing a minimum of one blog post daily.
I had an appointment with the dentist after work and managed to get back home at around 11:30 am. I had to write my blog post before I got some a few hours of sleep and back to work again.
I have given myself on average 1.5 hours to write each of my blog posts. I made myself a coffee, fired up my laptop and stared at the new post canvas on WordPress.
I had no clue of what I was going to write about as I had been awake for 21.5 hours. My eyes were literally shutting. the image of cartoon characters using match sticks to keep their eyelids open came to mind.
I knew that I had to write this blog post, I had to get started. I cannot let procrastination shatter my dream again. I started writing this blog post without any consideration to SEO, introduction, heading or subtitles.
I just wanted to share what was on my mind. I know people will still come and read this post from links on my autoresponder and other blog posts.
I used to complain about the heating in the building that I work in not being sufficient in winter months. I have suffered from backaches, headaches and colds as a result. Not much has been done to fix this issue.
I have stopped complaining and decided t take action towards find a way out of this environment. I am working towards building my online business to enable me to earn a monthly passive income that will match the salary from my current employment.
Working towards this goal keeps me motivated and I use the adverse environment at work to boost this motivation. There is no point in complaining when nothing gets done. I have decide to take things into my own hands and find a way out of this toxic environment.
Even though I’m really tired, I know that I need to focus on my goal. These moments of perseverance will become the catalyst that ignites the rocket of momentum, that will take me out of the comfort-zone.
Many thoughts are coming into my mind whilst writing this blog post… especially a quote by a late martial arts legend.
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” ― Bruce Lee
I have decided to keep this post formless and just let my thoughts express themselves. Nothing in life stays stationary, I know my current circumstance will change very soon.
I will be going into work after only sleeping for only 2 hours. Sometimes in life we need to make sacrifices to enable us to move onto better things.
The caffeine from the black coffee seems to be keeping me awake, maybe it’s a placebo effect, but it is working. I have been blogging consistently for over 2 weeks.
I have started getting prospects to look at the opportunities that I am working with (LiveGood and Nexus Rewards). I know it will take a couple of months to start building global networks in these opportunities.
The most important thing to do is to hold onto the belief and take consistent action towards getting the message out. My marketing is mainly done via the posts on this blog.
I am driving visitors to this blog and they have started reading my posts. It is still early days, I know there is still a lot of marketing effort that needs to be put in to accomplish my goal.
It is not easy to stay consistent with my blogging whilst working 12 hour long shifts. I have over 1,500 words on most of my blog posts for SEO purposes. I will start writing some shorter posts to just get my thoughts out.
Everything I’m writing on this blog is not intended for search engines, I am trying to keep my writing in natural human format. Search engines will start to move away from the keyword and key phrase based ranking method. They will start analyzing the content of the entire post to try and work out the relevance for search purposes.
Even though I am facing a lot of struggles in my life, I have decided to keep a positive outlook and make things better. I have to let go of all the blame, especially blaming myself for my current circumstance.
I know it is up to me to take responsibility and work towards resolving these issues. We all face adversities in our lives, it’s how we deal with them that determines and shapes our character.
I have watched myself struggle for too long, I have some unresolved issues that need to be addressed. I am working on my mindset to enable me to transform my life.
There is much pain from the past that is sill eating away at me. I need to get on with my life and make it better for me. I need to let karma deal with all the wrongs that I have experienced in the past. I need to distance myself for the web of negativity and focus on myself and my happiness.
The negative thoughts and emotions have manifested into physical pain in my body. I have made a decision to let go of the negative thoughts and emotions. I am working on resolving these issues by focusing on my mindset and watching my thoughts.
There is a lot of work that needs to be done in 2024, this is going to be the year that I break away from the negativity and leave the past behind me.
Whatever pain you are going through in your life, just remember that it will soon pass. Keep a positive outlook and try and address the root cause that has created it.
We will experience a lot of adversities in our lives, but we must push beyond our limiting beliefs to develop a mindset that allows us to deal with them.
