Today is one of those happy days for me. Not only because I am alive, but because something which I thought was impossible was made possible today for me.
I always say that, there are many reasons why people have fear. Sometimes, the fear may try to overwhelm you. Fear is just False Expectations Appearing Real. Fear is a person like I said in one of my post. You can read that here. Fear is a liar. Fear will give you a lot of doubt about yourself, render you useless, and powerless. Fear will make you look down on yourself. Fear may even make you bring your vision to zero. Fear is good for nothing.
You may know the good things in life. You may want to be the best person in the world. You may want to be a business guru or a business tycoon. The only thing that can actually stop you is yourself. Your mind is the only thing that can actually stop you. In a world like ours, where everything is fast, a lot of people want instant things. Only few people want to work hard and achieve their goals. A quick fix is never really a part of the plan to fulfilling your destiny, or going for your dreams.
When quarantine started, I decided to put up a video every day on my YouTube channel. This was actually an abrupt decision that I made. It was going to be challenging for sure. I didn’t really know what was expected of me. I knew I would spend a lot of sleepless nights, but I didn’t know it would be a consistent thing. I knew I would be busy doing videos, and it is not only about sitting down and recording a video, but it is more about sitting down, recording, editing, and watching over and over making sure that it is up to standards to be watched.
When I made this decision, I dived into the unknown, and ever since quarantine started, I have been putting out videos daily. My channel that didn’t really seem to be growing was staring at me. I was hoping I would get to a thousand subscribers. The good news is that, I have finally gotten to that. It was so worth it. Hard work pays and trust me when I say that I danced a ‘holy ghosted’ dance. I was super happy, and I was like ‘wow, so I have finally reached 1k subscribers?’.
The truth is that, 1k subscribers may not mean anything to some people, or it may not mean anything to you. Let me give you some reasons why it means so much to me. This is the first time I have had a thousand subscribers, and I grew my channel after being consistent. I didn’t just sit and say it may not be possible. All you need is within you.
Set target goals, and go for it. Amidst all of that, some people told me that I am just wasting time to be uploading videos. I had decided to cut off any form of wasting time doing unnecessary things. I also spent more time on my craft. I am not where I want to be. I am not where I use to be either. When you want anything in life, go for it. This is just the beginning of a journey of a thousand miles.
