Feeling down and then rising up again!

One of my biggest weaknesses is that every now and then I feel down and start questioning and doubting what I’m doing and the choice I’m making. When I stumble in this vortex I see things from a different/negative perspective. I think this relates to motivations. As my life is predicated on motivations and chasing the next goal, I think that falling into this trap is sometimes inevitable.

Luckily, this trap usually leads to a binary conclusion. Either I change, or keep going. I honestly wish I didn’t stumble into this vortex, but I assure you that once you get out of that you can rise up again and find the right motivation to keep going once again.

I guess it’s just life!

What’s your craft?

What’s your craft? Is it sports, perhaps snowboarding. Or are you into E-Sports and you want to become big on Twitch? Are you a sales man and still believe in direct marketing, thus not minding going door to door, or you believe in sales through social media and take a different approach? Or do you believe in voice and gardening, so you started a podcast combining them two!

The punch line is that there are so many options. It is just a matter of understanding what we love to do and go for that! The best thing is that it doesn’t have to be liked by everyone, you’ll have your niche that will surely be more responsive that the masses.

So, what’s your craft? Just go for it!

Kindness scales (Seth Godin)

It scales better than competitiveness, frustration, pettiness, regret, revenge, merit (whatever that means) or apathy.

Kindness ratchets up. It leads to more kindness. It can create trust and openness and truth and enthusiasm and patience and possibility.

Kindness, in one word, is a business model, an approach to strangers and a platform for growth.

It might take more effort than you were hoping it would, but it’s worth it.

It is just the truth!
