A moment of honesty: I’ve recently been trying to get guest posts published on various websites.
I’ve been going for the “big guns” — the sites I love and admire.
I figured, why not shoot for the top?!
It’s an amazing moment when you finally figure out your dream or start taking action towards one of your big goals.
Breathtaking, exciting, and life-affirming, all in one.
You’ve figured it out... you start making plans... and then you realize…
(Note: I’m using blogging as an example here, but it could apply to other situations in your life.)
Here’s a question you might have asked yourself at some point:
When should I stop working on my blog… if it feels like it’s not going anywhere?
When should I stop trying to get guest posts published?
Quite often in personal development, we talk about the “best version” of ourselves.
That’s all we want, right?
To go out into the world as our best selves.
To tap into the "best bits" inside us and bring them forth every day.
It’s such a powerful idea – this “best” version of you.
And yet, it’s complete bullshit!
So, I recently gave up alcohol... after 22 years of drinking.
It was a shock to some of my friends.
“Why aren’t you drinking?!”
“Are you pregnant?” (No.)
“Oh, one won't hurt!”
