Because Life Happens

I Choose to Succeed. How to persevere on. Behind the Scenes 4….

We can change the world.  It is in your hands to make a difference.

Nelson Mandela

We either choose to fail or we choose to succeed at what ever task we take on.  I choose to succeed at blogging by taking on all obstacles set forth in my way.  On this journey that I am working on there have been so many times where I wanted to give in but there is something in me that says I need to follow thru.  Therefore I will.

New day new dollar is what they say.

But is that how you feel about your progress thus far?

Do you begin the day with new hopes and fresh relief that there is an upside to this journey?

Is your patience worn thin?

The overwhelming feeling of disbelief that all of your work is warranting you nothing but despair.

After a hard nights sleep I woke up feeling in a positive mood for the new day, reassuring myself that this new day brought new followers and growth to my blog.

Positive thoughts with a positive mind brings positive results.

Until you check Facebook to find a notification saying you are about to be removed from the group because you did not finish a thread.

Kicked out of the support group that you just joined-how could that be?

Panic Mode times 3 is my state of mind at this time.

this is how this process affects me

I went back through the threads that I had participated in found that one of them had a timeline that expired on the very day that I linked in to it.  With the many threads that I linked to, I was going back and forth between them and not fully completing one entirely.

This meant that you can’t participate in another thread if you didn’t finish the first one.

See what happens when you don’t read the rules and follow instructions:(  Follow Me, Read Me, Talk to Me. Behind the Scenes 3.

I laughed to keep from crying all the while thinking that it couldn’t be that hard to be a blogger.  What did the world of bloggers do before there was internet and computers driving them on?

I choose to succeed.

As perspiration started pouring down from my armpits this was a real-time to panic because on this very day I had to work a 12 hour shift and had less than two hours to get there.

Where in that time could I possibly get time to complete a blog thread?

Putting myself into what I thought was beast mode, I drank a full cup of coffee, showered and dressed for work and with a smile on my face I checked to see how many participated in the blog follow thread (150) and of that how many were my new followers (the same 10. No more, no less).

As my body temperature began to rise and I felt the sweat build up on my forehead, all I could think about was to break something.  Frustrated and disappointed I grabbed my things and left for work.

That was the longest ride ever.  I turned the radio completely off and worked on re-grouping myself for the next hurdle.

Turning that 12 hour work day into a 20 hour work day, I stayed up when I got home and finished the threads.

Realizing that no matter how bad I want this to happen now there is a process and it’s a process that I have no control over.  I choose to succeed!

Even now to this day this post may not be read by anyone but writing it had to be done.

I am still participating in Blog Support groups and have joined more.

In order for me to be a success the work has to be done and the lessons have to be learned.

Even when I learn them the hard way……

Your mind drives your mood.

Your mood determines your actions.

Your actions bring forth change.

That change is the driving force of your future.

Blogging was something that I wanted for my niece. She never followed thru so I started my own. Nothing specific just a lot of general things that I discuss because Life Happens and I talk about it.
