Peace Tr3 Fam! Welcome to December!! We made it to the final month of the year wow! One thing I definitely learned in 2019 is focusing on what you have. I'm pretty sure we all can agree that our motivation is based on things we don't have or things we want. More money for instance, or a certain car/truck, etc. So we set goals to go after things we don't possess, which at times create anxiety, stress, being overwhelmed. That also takes the focus off the most important thing in our lives, what we already have.
In the technology era there are people that dream of being the next big brand on social media, so there's a need to have "more followers" on social media so people can start their influencer hustle. It's wild what people are doing to get a massive amount of followers on Instagram, buying followers was a ugly trend that I'm glad has died down. But the crazy thing is having a big following on social media doesn't always equate to more money. You'll be surprised at the number of stories out there about people with millions of followers are struggling to get by. I tell people to focus on the followers you do have, because how can you handle 10,000 followers if you've never learned how to handle the 100 followers you have now. How can you expect to monetize your social media with a huge followers if you never made money with a small following? Think about it.
It's amazing what we put ourselves through just to go after what we don't have, we go after more money so we can buy material items that add no value in our lives. Only to end up losing it or going broke down the road because we were so driven to go after it we never planned for when things go left. Don't get me wrong there's nothing wrong with wanting more money, or nice things. But sacrificing our mental well being is where we have to draw the line. Instead focus on what you already have, that will serve as preparation for what's to come. Many desire more money because they believe it will solve their problems, but if you don't know how to manage the money you have now then how can you expect to manage a larger sum? Think about that too lol.
This month I want you all to shift your focus on what you have, and be grateful that you possess it. In order to get more money you have to learn how to work with what you have now. In order to grow on social media you need to have an engaging following that love to comment on your posts. All of which you can start doing right now and will be a great way to start a new decade. More importantly be patient! A lot of what creates that stress, anxiety, and being overwhelmed is lack of patience. Things take time to build, and there will be setbacks but learn the lesson from those setbacks and continue on. So shift your focus! Trust me it will be worth it. Love
