Why I gave up writing blogs!
If you follow Momettas and our content you may or may not have noticed that I haven’t been blogging or posting as much as I have in the past.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I wasn’t feeling it. My excuses were simply, that I was tired, I was busy and for an extended period of time I really didn’t want to!!
Hard for me to admit, but easy for me to realise what was going on. In fact, I knew exactly why and the root cause was, I honestly lost a bit of the passion and some of that initial spark that made me start it in the first place.
In most of my blogs I publish and one of the major philosophies I believe in, is that self awareness is one of the first solutions to start moving in the right direction. In other words to be successful whether that be small or large you need to have enough awareness to make positive changes.
Sometimes though obstacles get in the way, and that’s life!
Other commitments that were small now become larger, or a day of not going to the gym turns to a week, and then a month and before you know it you’ve lost all energy to go!!
As I came closer to realising my lack of effort and increasing laziness to stick with my goals, I knew it had to change. But simply being self-aware that you need to change is not enough, I had to take action.
So I sat down as I tend to do in situations like this and mapped out what was important to me, and more importantly WHY I started Momettas in the first place.
In fact right about the time I was doing all this, I got a text from a student who I have been working with for a few years who has been applying our teachings and through perseverance and dedication to his goals he reached one of the major one's he set out to achieve. This text alone was enough for me to rejuvenate my own goals of helping others succeed, and evidently re-boot and re-start the momentum of writing!
The truth is, maintaining success with a high level of energy requires a lot of effort, and sometimes a reboot and a restart is what is needed to get you back on track.
This doesn’t mean you're wrong or you failed at all, it just means that you’re aware enough to action change and get yourself back on track.
The reality is some goals and achievements are easier to maintain while longer more meaningful goals are always going to challenge the effort and energy you have, and whether you actively take a break, or naturally fall behind (like I did through lack of effort and energy) then that’s quite alright too!
Till next time!
