I’m stuck. I’m stuck trying to revive an etiolated mindset of mine.
I was motivated. So much that I set up daily routines I could’ve never dreamt of following before, and thought of nothing but working hard. I felt happy. I had never felt that way before. I heard the motivating chimes of my favorite songs in my head. I could see images of me making it big right in front of me. I had reached my zenith.
But then something happened. My vigor grew weaker. I restarted procrastinating. My happiness fell. I stopped working so hard. I fell into my wild instincts to take action which only gave me pleasure at that time.
It was then I realized how tough it is to become someone great. I tried becoming 0.01% of that and I failed. But will I let in? I started all this for a reason.
In fact, I started writing this article 5 minutes ago in the hope of reviving my motivation through writing. And the answer has come. I am currently at the “drop”. I have read of this. It is what happens when anyone tries to learn something. Once you’re past the beginning phase you feel as if you just don’t get it. Despair takes over. But seldom do people know that just a breakthrough away is the inflection point. The part when you realize that you actually are great and that there are not many people like you.
So that is why I’ve decided to keep on it. I’m gonna get to that inflection point sooner of later. I’m going to get better. I have to.
So to those of you reading this, keep going. When everything seems to fall apart, you have just the thing to keep everything together. Your willpower. That’s why we decided to do this in the first place.
p.s. the article affects you so much more if you read it while listening to a song.
