This post marks 6 months after the official launch of Q4 Daily Inspiration and 1 year from creating this platform with posts to beta testers. I have a few subscribers and a handful who signed up for the free month. I am disappointed by where I am after all the time and work and hopes. I am frustrated by how far my reality remains from my dream.
I remember when I’ve been in this place before. Whether starting my medical practice with only a few patients a day. Playing tennis hoping the ball goes in. Dating girls wondering who I’ll ever marry. I’ve been in this struggle before.
I also know this is how change happens. Where my epiphanies begin. As seeds of frustration. Breakthroughs I can’t anticipate or control. Which makes it all the more confusing but at times allows me to settle into my turmoil without stress, dealing with baseline annoyance and distracting contemplation.
The internet has exploded into a massive tidal wave drowning everyone with endless photos, articles, videos, courses and groups. Myself included. I was foolish to believe that my 1 video and 1 article would lead to a rush of subscriptions.
It could be easier to do what I’ve already done and operate until I die like the doc’s in their 80’s that I see in the doctor’s dining room and grand rounds because they have nowhere else they’d rather be.
But I choose more… More options… More experiences… More possibilities… MORE LIFE! I think I understand and accept that with this choice, I also choose more struggles, more excitement and more failures. I’m betting on change. Focusing on excitement. Committed to sparking a change in you and me.
