In a success-driven world, it’s easy to lose momentum, but it’s what you do when your creative wheels stop spinning that matters.

You obsess over every task. You overthink every pitch, discussion, or comment in your work chat. You convince yourself that you’re not doing enough, so you push past your limits, and you exhaust every ounce of your creativity. You haven’t had one week where you aren’t constantly stressing about the immense amount of work you need to complete.

If any of this sounds like you, then you need to know that you’re not alone. I have always been the kind of person that believed that if I just had a good start to the week, I’d somehow find the motivation…

You don’t need aggressive sales tactics or roaring social media traction to build your career, but you need real grit

You’re a writer that probably hates having to jump on your socials to market yourself every time you publish a new article or have a unique story you’d like to share. I’m right there with you because I hate marketing myself. If it weren’t such a big part of what allows my writing to reach bigger audiences, I would cut it out altogether, but I can’t.

I’ve read countless articles, watched one too many videos on the topic, hoping I could find a comfortable method that would work for me, and I finally have. …

To design the life you want, you have to take charge of your creative output

You write out your next business idea, feeling the rush of excitement flow through you because you genuinely believe this is what you were meant to do.

Once you put your pen down and begin researching your competitors, or successful people in your field, that excitement starts to diminish. The confidence you had in yourself is replaced by doubt and in comes the fear to kick you when you’re already down.

“How am I going to do this when there are already so many incredible businesses like this out there?” …

Mental clarity is integral to creative success, and it’s time you realize taking care of yourself is your pathway to fulfillment.

You’re finally starting to see success. It’s a wave of thrill, fear, and anticipation, but you push past your hindrances to deliver time and time again. Everything’s good until you start sacrificing more hours of sleep, forgetting to eat breakfast because you’re pumping out as many words as possible, and soon you crash.

You think that it’ll just be a minor setback, that you’ll sleep it off and get back to work the next morning, but you don’t. You’re stuck, and the fear begins to set in. …

Your fresh start is calling. Will you pick up?

A new year is your chance for new beginnings. You may not be one for new year’s resolutions, or you may think that you won’t be able to change much because your goals feel like they’re lightyears away, but that doesn’t mean you should shelve them, hoping next year will somehow be the right time to start.

You can already picture what you want your life to be like, what you want to achieve, and where you want to be by the end of the year, but will you actively work to get there? Take this fresh start of yours…

Don’t let stress or fear keep you from turning ideas into captivating content.

You wake up, and the thought of opening up your laptop with a fresh cup of piping coffee makes you shudder inside. The deadlines loom over you, the pressure of having to get your articles edited to be published on time makes you sweat, and you can feel the creativity slipping right through your fingers.

I’ve been a worrier and an over-thinker for most of my life, but I’ve never found that it affected any of my goals until recently. I went through a period where turning in work on time and hitting the publish button on an article filled…

Your story is only a failure if you don’t write it.

I put off my writing because the thought of failure consumed me. I went to bed every night thinking that the following day I’d miraculously wake up to a better lifestyle and an inspired mind ready to pour my heart into my writing.

It took two weeks of hoping things would work themselves out to understand how much time I’ve been wasting. I quickly learned to accept the idea that failure is part of the game, and the less time I spent worrying about it, the more I’d be able to write.

I was tired of being scared to try…

Yes, it has everything to do with mindset.

You hate that you procrastinate. You wake up feeling the pressure on your shoulders to create consistently and be an active part of the fast-paced, overstimulated online world. You finally dragged yourself out of your creative rut to write again, expecting the same number of reads as the last great article you published, but you’re met with crickets.

So, what do you do? You shut off your laptop and procrastinate some more until the discouragement starts to dissipate. You wait around licking your wounds when you should be out there writing your next piece. …

This is why you need to slow down.

When was the last time you took real time to yourself? Are you swept up in the energetic allure of a busy life, or have you figured out how to implement balance?

You ask people in your life if they honestly enjoy the long hours, the constant need for a stimulated mind, and a lot of them will tell you that they do. Though, I’m not one of those people. I can’t comprehend being busy all of the time because when I do, I quickly burn out.

The longer I force my creativity to cooperate, the more it weakens, and…
