I’m so excited for my next #SaturdaySparkSession ! ✨
To be completely real with ya—there was a moment where I had given up on my business! There were so many changes happening online & it was getting more and more challenging to put thoughts into words & generate content that’s easy to absorb, of value & hit the right notes that made it relatable.
With the rise of technology, everyone can be a content creator with apps you can easily download, generate visuals, designs & edit videos from without utilizing the mega complicated tools.
And for a minute, I got lost in the world of “everyone is doing it, there’s no point pursuing it anymore”. I had old clients doubt my ability as a content strategist, creator, digital storyteller and marketer because they saw from random posts they chanced upon online that they could create on their own without monetary cost. They saw results from well-established brands that have poured their hearts and souls & invested A LOT OF MONEY over the course of 10 years or so strengthening their brand vision, taking risks & diving into a world of trials & errors that I couldn’t give them in a span of a few months.
There was a clear disconnect & I let situations like that hit my confidence & went on a downward spiral of self-doubt, anxiety & mild depression.
I thought I wasn’t good, never mind not good enough. I made it mean that I wasn’t contributing, I wasn’t adding value, & that I was a complete waste of investment—in money, in time & in connection.
I’m sharing this with you now because I can finally put into words what had been weighing me down lately: my excuses.
From one or two isolated incidents of misalignment with clients, I came up with a story, a reason, an EXCUSE that I couldn’t move forward, I couldn’t grow into my role, I’m a failure in the work I do because I had failed someone therefore I will always fail.
The more I nurtured this thought & the feelings that it carried, the more it manifested in my reality.
Thankfully, my commitment to growth & contribution is more powerful than any excuse. I’m back on track to clearing what doesn’t serve me & shifting to what does.
