Thank you for sharing something so personal.
These are questions we all struggle with at times in our
There were two points in your post that really jumped out at
“…but nobody reads them so the goal is pointless and thus I give up on this goal.”
“…that's been growing like crazy and gets me inspired every morning, but I barely make any money with it.”
The word “pointless” and the phrase “barely make any money” indicate
to me you are judging not only your goals but yourself and your current results
You won’t achieve every goal you set out to do. That isn’t failure it is something much more important – feedback. If you succeed at everything, you aren't stretching yourself enough and you aren’t learning nearly as much as when something doesn’t turn out the way you thought. You need to reframe your experience as just that – experience.
Experience is the foundation for wisdom.
One of my favorite quotes from Thomas Edison – “I make more mistakes than anyone
else I know. And, sooner or later, I patent most of them.”
You are in strong company of people that have had “failures”:
- Henry Ford failed and went broke five times before he finally succeeded.
- Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor for lack of ideas.
- Margaret Mitchell's classic Gone with the Wind was turned down by more than twenty-five publishers.
Along with the other excellent suggestions from others on this forum, my suggestion is to read biographies of people who have overcome multiple failures and been successful like the ones mentioned above. They will be not only inspirational, but you can also learn through their experiences and stand on the shoulder of giants.
You aren’t failing, you are learning because you have been brave enough to take chances and put yourself out there. That puts you well ahead of most people who
don’t even try.
Stay strong and carry on.
All the best!
