I needed to hear this. It’s so easy to steer off course in the beginning, especially when your expectations for results are wildly off base. I wish people could be more transparent with what It truly takes to successfully create as opposed to consume.
Thankyou for sharing this because It allowed me to see the value in slowing down, gaining clarity and then re strategizing. As you stated, there are continuous setbacks when trying to establish your freedom, and so there will be many occasions on which you’ll need to pause, evaluate and try again from another angle. While this is mentally taxing, it’s still a better alternative to rushing the process and completing crashing.
Things truly do take time and persistence is rewarded.
