As I publish this blog, there are several people who are not going to click through and read; not because they are busy but because they either dislike me or have no idea of what am writing about and these are part of the lessons. We must be ready to face them.
In my digital marketing journey, I had to weed things out in my life that were taking much of my mind space but were not yielding anything useful. I had unresolved disputes in my life with people, many times they were taking most part of my mind space. I had regrets about the choices I made in my past. Much of my energy were put into feeding my fears that were impractical. I discovered that I had several things at the top of my mind that were not leading me to my dream and ambitions.
I feared that people will not love or read my blogs, it was bubbling through my mind every day and it delayed my journey.
There are many possible experiences that are demanding in this 21st century; there is so much to do, so much to take care of and so much to achieve.
Health, relationships and money are the 3 big areas in our lives towards every dream. We only need to focus on 2 at a time. One of which is health because it is non-negotiable; it is the foundation on which relationships and wealth can be built.
As we get more comfortable with our ambitions, we will be able to see more opportunities that can lead to it. This is why I decided to share my top 3 lessons:
When we focus it means we concentrate on one thing at a time. Several things in our life will fight to become the top idea in our minds and they can tear us apart. It is unhealthy and unproductive to keep switching the top idea in our minds; none of the ideas will get enough attention to get tangible results.
My growth in digital marketing has come from a deep thought and keeping it as one idea in my mind has enabled me accumulate a lot of knowledge around it. Thinking big is the kind of pain we have when fighting to achieve our goals, so focus and feel the pain.
Courage can make us do what we have never imagine of, hence it is a magic that can turn imagination into facts. When I was starting out as a digital marketer, my confidence was very low and as a result I was not sure I could sustain myself and keep it alive. But in spite of all the doubts, I had to think in a big way; consequently, my imagination and creativity had to stretch itself.
If we think we have bigger problems in our lives than coming out to fight for our dream, then we are not prioritizing our idea enough to succeed. Gain courage and push yourself.
#3: Think Big
Thinking big can be intimidating, but probably it works; if you can conceive it in your mind, you can achieve it.
I don’t think the universe will conspire to help us achieve our dreams, but our sub-conscious mind surely does; Sub-conscious mind guides our conscious mind on how to move forward to achieve our dreams and goals. Everything we input into our sub-conscious mind will definitely have an impact to our actions; and our actions will eventually have an impact on our results.
