Being an immigrant, and new blogger, I comprehend the hurdle to start over and the pressure of our social circle. It is hard to want a change of career or choose a different lifestyle than the path our predecessors had taken.
The stigma is that you need to follow the same pattern or would fell out or not succeed at all, do not get me wrong, I respect 100%, and understand the struggle, discipline it requires to make a 360 turn in life, especially in a new country and culture.
Nonetheless, if you want to maintain your creativity, and produce periodically there are a lot of focus and consistency to put in place, otherwise the outside influence will have a toll on your confidence.
1-Be your biggest fan
Yes, it is easier to say, of course because we all have this little voice in our head always doubting our choices, and keeping us from taking the big jump, risking ourselves to pursue the goals, the dreams that keeps us up at night.
The twist is do not apologize or feel bad because you desire different, cheer yourself, applaud and congratulate your own self, each step and progress, oh yes, my mirror can tell, and it works wonders.
2-Have a motivator
True, you are creating content, and investing time and money to witness your best possible self and aiming to encourage and help others. However, sometimes even the toughest mind can flinch.
3- Plan and stick to it
I have injured myself at work therefore I had to concede and leave out some ideas of my previous schedule content creations, I was no longer able to perform because of pains.
I readjust and workaround my temporary situation to keep posting every Sunday. Have points A, B, C… just in case.
4-Stay honest and true to your yourself
The WHY you are doing your journey and HOW you want to help is primordial to your image and progression, yes you can sometimes feel that you are the protagonist in a survivor episode, solo on a deserted island, it is okay because somewhere someone watching and keep being you.
I love blogging and my personal style. Yes, I am a work in progress meanwhile every day, I build on my confidence and comfort zone. Practice, practice it will slowly but surely become natural.
