Let me tell you a little secret about all of this working online fuss… When people get in touch and ask for that ONE advice I’d give to anyone looking to start a blog, my answer is very simple- you have to stop making excuses and do something to make it happen.
Look, you can plan all you want, but in reality, it only keeps you away from actually becoming successful online. Anyone you know that’s already rocking their presence has started from big, round ZERO.
They didn’t have fancy equipment, they didn’t have crazy sponsorship deals or were overbooked with client work.
Most of these people just went for it without a business plan or in fact, any plan at all. They just wanted to share their thoughts and their knowledge. Some of them failed, but that’s 100x times better than not trying at all!
Let me tell you one thing- if you’re truly, deeply passionate about something, you have to stop making excuses and begin telling your story instead.
Remember my word- a year from now you’ll wish you had started today & deep down you know this for yourself. The sooner you’ll discover your biggest passions and dreams, the better.
The answer is simple- just start doing.
If you were thinking of learning to dance- book those classes now.
If you wish you’ve travelled more- go ahead and order any tickets today. It doesn’t have to be a huge, expensive experience, start with somewhere close!
And of course, if you were thinking of starting a blog, go ahead and do it, it only takes 5 minutes → !
I know, not everyone in this world is made to become successful business owners, but you’ll never know until you give it a shot, huh?
You might think that you’re not fun enough, or not interesting enough, or not rich enough or perhaps not even good enough to take your ass off the couch and start working towards your dreams.
The thing is, all the power in this world is within you, my friend!
I am not perfect and more times than not, I doubt my choices and lack confidence, but I don’t want to live this life regretting the things that I haven’t tried.
Since the teenage years, I was passionate about building my own business. Trying to make extra cash here and there, supporting myself all the way through university and then finally going full time with my online adventures. Honestly,I had millions of moments where I’ve doubted my choices, but, at the end of the day, I’m SO happy to be in the place I am right now.
I don’t come from a rich background, in fact, when I first moved to London, I lived in a squat and made money working in a very questionable kitchen.
The thing is, I wanted to study, I wanted to experience a life abroad and I made it happen. It wasn’t easy, but damn it was exciting!
I had to work for every single thing in my life and that’s why I hate excuses.
Seriously, it’s the worst thing you can do to yourself and let me be honest with you- if you feel like something is not happening in your life for one reason or another- you’re the only one to blame. Here you go, I’ve said it!
Change your plan, change your mindset, take the other way, but whatever you do- don’t make any excuses.
You’re only keeping yourself from reaching your full potential this way and that’s just sad.
Stop right now.
There’s no other way around this.
Look, you don’t have to change your life completely right this minute. Start from something, but at least start!!
Whatever what’s boring you- get rid of it.
Whatever you’ve been postponing for ages- make a plan to make it happen. List all the steps you need to complete and start from step one today. YES, TODAY.
Seriously, stop making excuses right this minute, make things happen instead, make changes, work towards becoming the best version of yourself! You can do this, you’re everything you need to be to make things happen for you!
I believe in you!
