On Friday I found myself lying on the floor, only to get up once I understood the source of the heavy sense of pressure I'd been feeling.
The entire day I had been feeling stressed for one reason—a lack of clarity.
At the moment I felt like I didn’t know where I was going, what I had to do to “win”, and how I would feel “confident” again.
There’s something even better than confidence though, and it’s certainty.
With it, you act in accordance with your answer to “What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail”?
I spent several days last week thinking about what my next business should be, and every time I do this it causes me a great sense of overwhelm.
What helped me overcome this feeling was incredibly simple.
Yesterday morning, I wrote down in a Notion document everything I needed to get done for the day and put it in my calendar.
I didn’t follow it perfectly (I underestimated how long certain tasks would take) but simply knowing what every minute of my day looked like took that sense of pressure off my shoulders immediately.
I understood what my input/output equation was.
I remembered my goal of becoming a full-time creator/entrepreneur and made decisions in alignment.
I said to myself “This is where most people quit, and this is why they don’t win”.
I try to approach every day from the perspective of my ideal self who already has accomplished everything I’m setting out to.
I simply think “What would he do right now”?, and nine times out of ten that steers me in the right direction.
We all know what we need to be doing.
I know that I haven’t been spending enough time sending emails to potential sponsors, researching other creators, and learning how to improve my video quality.
With this knowledge, I can make time in my calendar to focus on each one of these separately.
We make winning seem harder to obtain than it is.
It just takes a while.
Things I’ve been working on
I bought the S24 Ultra to cover on the channel and I'm really enjoying it. It's currently my daily driver and the only reason I could see myself going back is for AirDrop and iMessage. New impressions video is live.
