Have You Ever Wanted Something So Bad…It Hurts?

Today I’m having one of those days…

Starting out anything new is kinda scary…especially if it is totally out of your comfort zone and something you have never ever done before.

I  love writing my blogs, and I have a big heart for social media – I think it’s amazing. But my issue right now is getting more traffic to my posts. I keep asking myself what am I doing wrong, when the actual fact is that I’m not doing anything really ‘wrong’ – I’m just not reaching the right people with my posts…and it’s doing my head in!!

So, how do we overcome this anxiety of wanting something so, so badly?

Firstly, grab yourself a cuppa…may it be tea, coffee, or a nice creamy hot chocoalte…what ever feel like..

Take a deep breath…everything is ok…and you’re going well so far!! Don’t beat yourself up so much worrying about the nitty-gritty.

Have a think about how far you have come already…even if this is the very first day on your new journey..give yourself a little pat on the back for making the decision and taking action…Good for you!!

know that you really aren’t alone in your journey – connect with others following your same path and with similar interests. – Google+ Communities  and Facebook groups are a great way of connecting with like-minded people.

Look for people already successful in the niche you have chosen and learn from them – sign up to receive their email updates and follow them through social media.

…And lastly – be easy on yourself!! Success only comes from loving what you do and doing it consistently..so instead of worrying so much about things, get yourself busy making things happen for you…each and every little step you take is taking closer and closer to success..so hang in there!!

everything you are seeking is seeking you

Anxiety…I think it’s something even the best of us all suffer with, from time to time, and wanting something like success so much, can be easy to get yourself carried away with anxiety, perhaps over thinking things, only to end up procrastinating, and not achieving any real results.

Starting out in anything new can be overwhelming with just so much to learn and get your head around, and if you are new to social media, or even if you’re not but you are having trouble getting people to follow you, and no matter how many blog posts or twitter messages you write…no one just seems to be hearing you – it all can be a little discouraging. Be sure to know that you really aren’t alone if you’re feeling this way…we all have to start somewhere, and yes, unfortunately we sometimes (I’m sorry to say, and I mean this in the nicest possible way.. ) can suck at getting started. But it’s actually a good thing..because look at it this way, if we were an instant success, what would we have learnt from?
