You have to keep moving forward.

You won’t want to conquer every day. But no matter what, you have to keep moving forward. 

One of the hardest things that I deal with is not being able to slow down. Somedays I’m incredibly tired. Somedays I’m unmotivated. Somedays I’m uninspired. Somedays I don’t want to sell anything or collaborate with anyone. 

When this happens, this is what I tell myself:

You have to keep moving forward. If you slow down, you fall behind. You have to accomplish your goal; achieve your dreams. You have to fight through this feeling and just keep moving forward. 

Is that a healthy mentality? Maybe not. But I’m human and trying to figure this out. And most importantly, I’m trying to accomplish my goal.

Maybe my views on this will shift down the road (I’m ever-evolving, after all), but for now, this is where I’m at. Maybe I’ll check back in 2022 and see if this thesis still holds water.
