Building a business is hard.
Coming up with content every week (day?) is hard.
Earning the trust of people in a cynical world with so much competing for our attention is hard.
But, if it wasn’t, would we ever appreciate the reward?
I think how you answer the following question is very telling of how you feel about your work: If you were handed a million-dollar check every year, what would you be doing with your time?
If money were no object, would you be investing it in building your business? Would you be trying to earn more than that? Would you be exploring a different passion or hobby which you had not previously had the opportunity to pursue?
Or would you chill all day at the beach with a drink (or play video games or insert whatever other leisure activity you enjoy)?
I don’t think there is a wrong or right answer here.
But one thing is for sure. Nobody said getting to live life on your own terms doing something you love was supposed to be easy.
It isn’t, but I think embracing the struggle of it and loving the process will be a huge part of long-term success Perhaps, we can learn not only to savor the rewards but to love the journey itself.
