Self Reflection Post 1
In the past, I have written blog posts on Wealthy Affiliate though not to the extent I plan to do with these "Self Reflection" posts. With these, I want to be very honest, hiding nothing about my successes and failures. If you cannot be honest with yourself, you cannot grow and realize your dreams. To be honest with you, like my self reflection posts or love them, I am doing this to help myself. I need it. If it helps you, I am glad.
In the past 6 months or so, my ethusiasm for my site waned. I did not make an article for four months despite earning my first $1.50. Part of the reason was that I studied abroad and had to deal with upper division coursework at UC Santa Cruz. The bigger reason, though, was that I lost my ethusiasm. I made excuses instead of making the time for my site. It is heartbreaking to know that I lost ground on my site's success when I could have been making progress towards my dreams.
I think one of the best pieces of advice I read for young people recently (like me!) was that, "whatever you end up starting out in, be ethusiastic about it." I need to be that way. For whoever reads this, do the same. Write with energy. It gives you the strength to overcome obstacles. You feel empowered.
Another important point, I have noticed that the best time for me to write is early in the morning. I am relaxed and calm. The clutter of the day has not affected my mind yet. I wake up at 6 AM. I think, once I am done with school, I will get up early at 4 AM. It sounds crazy right? No one else is up at that hour, but it is a great time to write because everything is so quiet.
If you have any thoughts or ideas, please comment below and I will be glad to bounce them off you.
Thank you so much and I hope you make it a great day!
