I almost stopped!
While I was meditating yesterday, I almost decided to stop sending these daily newsletters. You’re shocked right? Now let me tell you why.
Prior to that time, I had spent over two hours reading the newsletters I had written in the past few days. Trust me when I say, nobody reads my works more than my own self. I read my articles over and over again for nothing less than an hour before I publish them daily. After that, I make sure to go over them for personal reviews and corrections at regular intervals. Don't even ask me why; I won't tell you.😎
The reason why I almost decided to stop sending these newsletters is because of a mistake I had made in the past. It came back to hunt me yesterday. I was looking for motivation in my audience. When I say audience, I mean the reactions (numbers) that follow every article. The likes, comments and shares. I was almost discouraged. But then I remembered that was why I stopped when I started the newsletter back in 2020. I was focusing on the wrong thing.
To be candid, that stunted my growth. If I had continued back then, I would have grown bigger than I am presently. But I am grateful – to God – I made the mistake. I have learnt a huge lesson. And here is the lesson:
“If you wait on external motivation for inspiration all the time, you won't go far.”
Right now I don't care if someone reacts or not. In fact, I don't care if everyone ghost-reads my works or not. But I know one thing for sure:
“I have a voice, a message in my words and my speeches and I won't stop until I leave the surface of this earth. Death is the only thing that can stop me from speaking.”
I hope this helps someone find their self-motivation this morning and I hope it helps you to stop giving excuses for those things which need to be done.
I’ll see you in tomorrow's newsletter. Please stay jiggy!🤗
