Many of you will notice that I’ve been in a fairly negative headspace. Even for my blog posts, which I try to keep mainly positive, but truthful. My job here isn’t to drag people down because I feel down, but to hopefully inspire, and to connect with those that read my blog.
I spent yesterday listening to life coach videos and trying to wrap my head around everything. Now, that isn’t to say that I didn’t get any work done. In fact, I got a lot more work done than I ever imagined.
Today, I woke up feeling focused, determined, and excited to sit down and write. This was a huge shift in my thinking and I’m so glad I took the time yesterday to really absorb what was being said. It was a Tony Robbins video, though, I listened to three and can’t pinpoint the exact one that said it. He made the statement, the meaning you associate (or assign) to something determines how you feel and what you do.
This statement blew me out of the water. Instead of associating a sensation of pleasure every time I sat down to write, I associated pain. It had become an inconvenience to sit down to write – a pain even. It was like I’d taken the whole ‘struggling artist’ saying and made it my life. I didn’t want that to be my life. Who does? That was such a negative headspace to be in for something that I once loved to do. And while we can change our opinions over time, this was one I didn’t want to continue on.
I started to make the adjustment last night while I took time to really connect and embed the things that he taught me. It won’t always be easy and I’ll stumble along the way, but I have a focus – a goal for what I want out of life and one for my writing career specifically. My eyes are focused solidly and I’m moving in that direction now.
Stay tuned for all the news of my upcoming projects and news on what I’m working on and what is getting released.
Until then, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
