Taking a Step Back

by BJ on February 26, 2015

hey there…sometimes i realize LESS is MORE…

sometimes, i'll be honest with you…i was trying to do so much…with the right intention to achieve my big goals and so forth…and i'm moving with A LOT of things in my life…but at the same time, i can't do EVERYTHING and can't be at all places at one time…

…at the end of the day, i realized i need to take a step back once in awhile in this journey to “achieve” and “succeed” in my dreams…

don't get me wrong…i'm not saying not to go for your dreams…i want to keep encouraging you to go for your dreams…but also ENJOY the process…ENJOY life during the process…because sometimes, i tend to forget that and i just want to share with you in this process…

…that's why just recently i started taking at least 1 day on Sunday (or at least do my best) to take time off from anything related to my business….

i know i am a pretty intense guy…but i realize when i get too intense for too long of a period of time, then i can burn out…

i've experienced before in 2013 when i went to like 10 seminars in a span of about 9 months…it was crazy…i was giving it all i got but you know what? at the end of that year, i burned out…

so it's important to take a step back once in awhile…

in your life and in your business…

i know i get very intense in my videos…i get passionate…but that's not the only side of me…

in fact in reality, i'm very introverted…

and looking back, that was just me trying to overdo it out of my own limiting beliefs thinking that i had to be like that to succeed…

but as i mature, i realize me being me is the best way…

…just like for YOU, you being YOU is the best way for YOU…

i was on gung ho mode lately…for 3 months…

and i changed A LOT in my personal life and business…

and honestly, i feel like i'm finally making the type of IMPACT that i want to make in people's lives one step at a time…no matter how small it may be now…

but i don't want to burn out…

that's why before that happens, i want to really take a little step back for now…

you won't see as much blog posts, emails, or even videos…

don't get me wrong…i'll STILL do it to because I LOVE DOING THIS…but it'll be less…and you know…that's BETTER FOR YOU…because LESS IS MORE…especially in this information overload world…because that gives YOU SPACE to FOCUS on YOUR DREAMS…

trust me…I LOVE DOING videos…content…I LOVE IT…after putting my many hours into it, i feel like a musician that HAS to create music…i have ideas and insights that come into my mind EVERY DAY!!! that's why i'm able to do these videos constantly…just like that, work on your craft…whatever your craft is…one step at a time…

but again i'm a human being…a walking contradiction…this is just me sharing my JOURNEY with you…as you are also on YOUR JOURNEY at YOUR STAGE in your life and business…

i'll be back…i may not be able to answer all your messages…because we live in a 24/7 world where it's stressful to be “on” all the time…and if that stress builds up so much, it can burn you out…and i've experienced that before in my journey…and i don't want to get there again…

plus, i actually have to FOCUS on finishing a NEW sales page for Video Commissions (written by a top notch copywriter) and also need to spend an ENTIRE WEEK next week in FLORIDA to learn from Dave Sharpe! (that'll be pretty exciting for me…and i'll share you some stuff when I get back after a little mini break to FLORIDA!)

…i know i'm intense and pushy at times but as i mature as a person (and you're basically witnessing my journey the GOOD and the BAD…the REAL), i realize at the end of the day, life is all about being yourself (that's the best thing you can do…and that's the message i want to keep sharing with you…to you be you all the way…)…and you know, it's okay to be contradictory…because we are all human…

so you follow your path in your way…your style…your stage…one step at a time…

i'll talk soon,
BJ
