Writing these thousand word posts on a daily is way harder then I imagined. Today for example. I’m sitting on my bed at 2am typing this on my laptop with a massive headache and a belly that hasn’t been adequately filled. I ate some food but I’m still hungry. My lil sister is making a two am snack that I am about to devour as soon as it gets ready. Today I wanted to talk about momentum and why you should suck it up and keep going.
When you’re in hell. Keep going.
Nobody ever said it was going to be easy. Writing this post is hard at the present time. My body is in pain. My back is killing me from the chest workout I did yesterday. No that wasn’t a mistake. I did a chest workout yesterday but for some reason it’s my upper back that is killing me. Maybe I didn’t stretch it and warm it up well enough. Maybe I slept on the wrong side of the bed. Whatever the case may be, my upper back is killing me right now.
On top of that, I have a massive headache, probably from a lack of drinking enough water. Yeah I’m fasting, so what. That’s not an adequate excuse. I was fasting yesterday as well and I didn’t have a blinding headache. To make matters even worse. My eyes feel strained from constantly looking at a screen. My left eye has been twitching recently. Something that has never happened before.
Enough of me talking about my struggles. We all fucking struggle. It doesn’t matter though. I am still here and I am still writing these thousand words no matter what. When you’re in hell. Good keep going. Cause you don’t want to stay in hell, you want to get the fuck out of there as fast as possible and make sure to never return.
It doesn’t get easier. You get tougher
There we go with another cliché heading. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s true. Writing these thousand words posts every day is not going to get any easier. Tomorrow I’ll have other demons that I’ll have to face and conquer. I am facing the demons that showed themselves to me today. I am defeating these demons even though they are taking a part of me with them. I am getting more tired, the pain in my back is getting more acute and the twitch in my left eye is hasn’t shown any signs of getting better.
It doesn’t matter though. I am still here writing this post. Once the thousand words have been reached. The demons trying to stop me will be vanquished for the day. Which in turn is going to make me stronger and more equipped to face the demons that are going to manifest themselves tomorrow. I have build up momentum with these posts. I am not going to slow down anytime soon. I am going to keep the momentum going no matter what. That is the only way. It’s getting though as hell. But I tell you what. I am going to keep going. There is no other way.
Its easier to keep momentum going than starting from scratch
Starting is the hardest part. Most people never fucking start anything. I have started these thousand word a day posting and by God I am going to keep going. I am building up the momentum. It is not getting any easier at all to write these posts. I am getting better. Incrementally, day by day. It hasn’t even been a week yet. Once the hard part is done with, it’s only right that you keep on going. How many people do you know that keep talking about starting a business. Years later then are still saying the same shit and are not taking any action.
Fuck that. Real OG’s take action. We do what we say. Through thick and thin. Doesn’t matter. Shit needs to get done. Nobody is going to do it for us so might as well buckle up, wipe them tears and get shit done.
This reminds me of the first time I started skateboarding. Bruh. It was hard as hell. I couldn’t do anything at all. I had no balance. I was in my early teen years. Living in Arusha Tanzania. I started learning in my house. The driveway and the yard were all small ass rocks. There was a small 18 foot paved porch area right in front of the house. That’s the only place I had to practice my skateboarding skills back then. I spent years, years, and I mean years trying to learn how to do a simple ollie. The hardest trick you can learn in skateboarding if you don’t know anything.
The point of that little story was that I never quit. It was hard as hell, frustrating as hell failing day in and day out for years trying to master a little trick that now feels like a fucking joke. I never stopped. I kept going. It never got easier. I got better.
Ride it until the wheels fall off
Forgive me friend, this post is kind of muddied and lacks proper structure. It’s passed 2am. My brain doesn’t work as well as it does when it’s fresh. The point I am trying to make with this post is that no matter what. ALWAYS KEEP GOING. Don’t expect for things to get easier. They do not. Everyday you are going to be facing new demons that you have to conquer. You have to defeat those demons if you want to ascend to the next level. The more consistent you get with defeating those demons, the stronger you get. Which in turn makes the demons even stronger.
That is the never ending game of life. The day the demons defeat you is the day you lose momentum. That’s the day you start regressing backwards. That’s the day you stop moving forwards. That will be the day the end starts. Don’t let your demons defeat you. You have the power within you to vanquish them. Nobody says it’s going to be easy. I can tell you one thing though. You’re going to get better and defeating those demons. Always keep going.
Go forth and vanquish those mental demons
See you tomorrow
P.S the food is finally ready. Stir fry rice. Amazing.
P.S.S The thousand word post is complete. I have vanquished my demons for the day. Have you?
