The Month of June...
Well, I am back! Interesting fricken month here in June and I kinda fell off the train of documenting as I started to get lost again and lost motivation.
I was out here looking for motivation from outside things and that was not helping at all as when I wasn't motivated I would sit around and watch YouTube and waste a ton of time, not being productive at all.
I would think about what I need to be doing but not actually do it (remember guys thinking is not getting you closer to your goals until you start taking actions on the thoughts).
So, there I was sitting around the 20-25 day mark on the month with not much social growth because I wasn't posting a ton and not much accomplishment this summer and just thinking "fuck."
I was still going to the gym and eating really good and reading when I could find the time, so I had those things going for me but other than that the month had not gone as planned.
I'm not sure about what it was about the one podcast or that one day but somewhere around the 20-25 day mark of June 2018, I was in the gym working out and listening to a podcast when this burst of energy just came through me and opened up my mind to what needed to be done.
I realized I needed to change, not just for a little bit but totally change my habits because those are what were driving me day in and day out and I had some shitty habits that were wasting time and not helping me get any results.
It wasn't motivation I was looking for or needing it was a change of habits that would propel me through the day more successfully.
It was also something about that one day and one Gary Vee Podcast I was listening to that made me realize the true value of time, how much I was wasting and how that was hurting me.
Sometimes you hear something a thousand times but then you hear it one more time and that is the time it really hits home and you fully understand what they are talking about, opening up your mind to a new world!
What I Have Been Focused on
Since then, the past few days have been devoted to first getting my time managed each day and not wasting any, deleting some apps I was wasting time on like Netflix, as well as starting to work on my business, getting more clients and shifting my focus to enjoying the process rather than just being pissed when something doesn't work the next day.
Since then, in just a few days I have landed three new clients that I am helping create, curate and manage their social media profiles as well as started working on services I am going to offer that make social media easier, more effective and quicker for businesses!
I also have started to document the journey again on Instagram and Twitter (@profitingtools for both) and I am going to start up these daily lessons, reports and what I am doing on social media each day to help you guys see what is and isn't working lately!
It is crazy what you can get done in a day when you have no distractions, and it feels way better than getting the immediate enjoyment from YouTube or Netflix but then feeling like shit after because you didn't get anything done!
The plan moving forward in the larger picture of things is going to be to focus on the journey, the long term and love the GAME more not just the rewards.
I have been focused on the game more in the past 3 days then ever before an I have just landed a few new clients each day, More than I have in a month of work before!
You actually start to get the best results when you don't focus on the results directly but the actions needed to take to get to those results ad then enjoy the journey to get there rather than going out and pushing, NOT GIVING, and getting nothing in return.
I am also starting to focus more on time management, if I have some down time do something productive rather than just watch YouTube and go down a rabbit hole of watching hours of videos.
I am redefining my habits one day at a time and a mindset I found to really help me get things done and see results (in business and life) was if I started to think I really don't want to do something then that should be the driving force to make me want to do it even more.
So, whenever I was thinking I don't want to do something I started doing it and it actually changed my life.
In terms of business, this month is going to be heavy in the realms of content creating, working with and growing my client base as well as getting my products out to help make social media just a little easier and more effective!
Thanks for the support as always fam and talk to you all tomorrow, or I guess tonight as it is 1am now haha
