I haven’t been able to write lately. I mean, I’ve been writing but I can’t find any substance, any passion, or real emotion in any of my pieces. Am I lacking motivation? Am I not surrounding myself with enough inspiration?
The other day I found a video on YouTube titled Commitment Issues. An 18 minute long vlog that a very popular UK Beauty Brand uploaded. Before I watched the video I read her description box.(Read below)
I’ve struggled with Commitment Issues in many areas of my life for as long as I can remember. After taking some time to reflect, I realised there was a void, and that I had been doing so many things all at once, hoping to fill it. What I didn’t know was that this was causing me to fail more than succeed, and it was only recently that I found that I went through the actions of commitment, but wasn’t really committed or connected to any of the things I was doing “Jack of all trades, master of none” malarkey. So I’ve made the decision to focus on one thing at a time, this thing is my YouTube/Blogging Career, for as long as I can, try and grow with it, rewards and challenges combined and see how I do. How do you deal with commitment issues if you have any (it can be in any area of life)? I’d love to know. xxx Click here to view her video!
Just her description box alone touched me. I am a JACK OF ALL TRADES, MASTER OF NOTHING. That’s some tough shit to swallow. After watching her video I had to honestly sit back and reevaluate myself. I have my hands in so many projects. I think I can do it all, but all of my doing has been producing nothing! Why? I’ve been trying to figure out what I’ve been doing wrong. I’ve been researching technique after article after video. At one point I’d felt like I was consuming too much knowledge and not releasing enough of what I’d learned through my projects and work. I realized, I haven’t been giving anything 100%. My hands are tied into so much that 60% goes here, and 85% goes here, 75% here, etc. Nothing that I’m doing right now has my 100% entire devotion. This of course has to change and with change then becomes growth. I promise to devote 100% to my passion of writing and editing. It makes me happy to see the comments and positive feedback my post receive. I fail my readers when I’m not consistent and that’s the number one way to be forgotten. I don’t want to be forgotten. I want to be great. I will be great. I apologize to you.
