Fear of Failure

What’s up Everyone? As always, I hope you are doing well and having grand life experiences.

 Frustration is something I live with on a daily basis. I thought to make it in this world during this time in history was going to be a lot easier than it has been. I find my main problem has been staying consistent. I’m working on it. It’s been a constant problem in trying to grow my audience. In the past there have been so many things I’ve started, but stopped because I lost interest in them. 

Like I’ve said in so many blogs before, if there is something you want to do, work towards it everyday until you’ve reached that goal. I find that to be easier said than done. I try to follow my own advice, but many times my emotions get in the way of my success. This is never something I count on happening, it just does. But the good thing is, I’m making strides to change that. I’m tired of my emotions setting me up for failure. 

Once I heard this girl say, “What you’re doing right now is what you’ll be doing in the next 2 to 3 years from now. So what that means is; If you have a crappy job now and you want to be your own boss, but you’re not doing anything to create that reality; don’t be surprised if all you have is that crappy job that pays you minimum wage. Remember in order to reap any benefit you have to put in work. The harder and more you work towards your goal, the bigger the pay off.   

I’m sure this is something that many of us know; but we’re just not ready to take on the responsibility of creating our own reality. This usually happens because we are afraid of failing. I know I am. That might be the real reason why it’s hard for me to be consistent; because I’m so afraid that I’ll continue to put in maximum effort and never be good enough to make a career out f this. One thing I’ve learned though is that you have to throw caution to the wind and  do what you want to do anyway. Learn to do it because it feels good. I know that’s why I write.

 If it makes you feel good, no one should be able to tell you anything. Remember, just because some don’t like it enough to help you grow, there will be others that will because they believe in you and what you stand for.

Making your Mark

Good Morning!!!!

 

Hope everyone is doing well!

 

Today’s post is about the obstacles you’re going to face while trying to make your mark in this world. As you should know, nothing and I do mean nothing is going to come easy. You’re going to have to fight tooth and nail to get to where you want to be. I understand for some of us it comes easier than others. But you’re going to have to fight sometimes harder to keep your spot than you had to get it. 

 Don’t feel discouraged, because everyone has to go through this point in life. As you know this wouldn’t be a Shads Short Stories post if I didn’t put an example of myself in here; so here it goes. At the current moment I’m fighting to stay motivated to make my mark. There are so many things I want to accomplish; as I’m sure you do as well. 

The thing that stops or causes me to procrastinate is myself, my emotions and my job. Many days I come home and I’m so tired that there is nothing I want to do more than come home and go to bed. I also understand by doing this it’s pushing the manifestation date of my dreams back significantly. This is a hurdle that I’m going to have to learn to jump, because I don’t want another year to go by and nothing that I have worked on has been manifested.

The one great thing I have manifested was my first published book. Something I thought was going to be near impossible to finish. But… I finished it. That’s why I have such an optimistic personality. Cause I know anything you put your mind to you can make happen. You just have to keep a positive attitude around that thing you’re trying to manifest, and it will come.

Too often we allow our mind to run away from us. We let those negative thoughts fester and later on don’t realize how continuing to think negatively gets us lost in our minds and emotions. All emotions are, are the body following the brain. Causing us to expel or energy in uneventful ways.

So the next time you’re overthinking something DON’T. All it does is throw your body out of wack and riddle you with anxiety. Overthinking too much also causes internal dis-ease. That is why it’s a great idea to read, meditate, sleep, or exercise to decompress from the day. 

I’ve recommended this book before, but I’m going to recommend it again along with another book. The first is:

Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself Audiobook by Dr. Joe Dispenza -  9781518936166 | Rakuten Kobo United States

  • Breaking the Habit of being yourself:  This book was a real Eye Opener for me, because it allowed me to realize people weren’t reacting to me; they were reacting in a learned behavior, that is also known as a program. This helped me to realize I had also allowed my mind to program me in such a way that every time I met someone new I became overcome by anxiety. I can’t express how much of an insight this was.

 

The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom by Miguel Ruiz

  • The 2nd is The 4 Agreements: The great thing about this one is it helps you to see and understand every time you do something wrong against someone else you’re actually hurting yourself. This is another one that helps you to get out of your head and start living. It helps you understand there is NO one holding you back but YOU.

 

 

 

 

Book Excerpt: The Power of Now by Eckhart TolleAs for what I’m currently reading The Power of Now. There isn’t too much I can say about this book as of yet, because I’ve just begun to read it. But trust if it’s a GREAT READ you will know about it.

Hard Work

Good Morning!!!! Hope everyone is well.

I’m on a new venture; once again. As you should already know, I have a book I recently published, a podcast I’m working on finding the right platform for, and a YouTube Channel in the making. When I say I’m working hard to gain my freedom, that’s exactly what I mean.

For years, I’ve said I don’t want to work for anyone. Now I’m finally putting in the work it will take in the long run to become my own boss. At the moment, I feel like I’m doing exactly what I was meant to do. I can’t explain enough how fulfilled I am to have written and completed my first published book. I have to admit though, I’ve bit off a little more than I can chew. So some of these ventures are going to take a back seat. They’re going to have to, once I go back to work, because I won’t have the time like I do now.

I know you’re probably wondering why I’ve chosen to write about this. Well….. because I want people to know dreams aren’t meant only for thinking about; their actually there as a driving force for you to act on. Why else would you have them?

Always know, no dream is to big for you to obtain. And if you really want it, you’re going to have to give it your blood sweat and tears to get it. Also, anything worth having isn’t going to be easy to get or keep. I don’t care if that’s a car, job, happiness, or fulfillment; you’re going to have to put in the work and keep working at what you want most, if you want to get and keep it.

Stay Inspired, Work Hard!!!!

As Always…..
