I’ve been pumping out a lot of content over the past year with one goal in mind, financial freedom.
Now there’s nothing wrong with that and if you’ve been reading my blog you’d know my main goal is:
$1,000,000 by 03/12/2020
And it still is that, but while I’m passionate about motivation it’s only half of what I truly want to write about.
So focusing purely on the financial goal creates an issue. It lacks purpose, meaning and mission. I know I can write motivational content and I could do it till the cows come home but so can millions of other people.
You see, I’ve been battling with myself on whether I have the courage to take my writing exactly where I want it to go. I’m going to be honest. Anyone can write motivational content… anyone. It’s really not that hard but to take it to a meaningful place and really open yourself up takes courage. To actually move it from general motivation to a place where you’re really putting yourself out there, is hard.
For the past 6 months I’ve been tossing up whether I can do it but a conversation last night gave me the motivation I need. I believe everyone was put on this earth for a reason after a talk with my girlfriends farther, I know mine.
I must admit this is one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’ve started businesses, put a lot of money into those business, made huge sacrifices to chase my goals but to me, their nothing compared to this.
Yesterday, I wrote about Vision Boards and mentioned the one quote I’ve lived off for the past 6 years.
“If you don’t take control of your life, someone or something else will”
We’ll there’s a reason for that.
I have Ulcerative Colitis. In fact, I have had extreme Ulcerative Colitis. For those who don’t know what it is, look it up. I had it for a full year before I told anyone and because of that it took about 6 more years to get an actual handle on.
I’ve dreamt of being able to not only motivate people but to motivate those people who do have chronic illnesses and show them that shits not over because you have it a little harder then others. It’s the main reason why I focus on excuses because in my eyes, whether I like it or not, sickness is an excuses. The world will not stop because I have this.
I will never be able to help people with the physical side of illnesses, I don’t have a curer or a diet that will get rid of it but I do believe I have mastered positive mentality. It took me 5 years to figure out the ‘why’. ‘Why’ is this happening to me. ‘Why’ can’t I eat these foods, etc,etc. It took me 5 years to move past that stage. Now, I’m at a stage where I want to help.
So here’s an introduction to a new topic I want to focus on and hopefully I can help people push past whatever shit they have going on in their life and start moving towards their goals.
