It’s about to get real…..
“I can never stick to anything.”
“I know I should focus on one thing, but which one?”
“I lose interest in things I thought would interest me forever.”
“I keep going off on another tangent.”
“I get bored as soon as I know how to do something.”
“I can’t stand to do anything twice.”
“I keep changing my mind about what I want to do and end up doing nothing.”
“I work at low-paying jobs because there’s nothing I’m willing to commit to.”
“I won’t choose a career path because it might be the wrong one.”o
“I can’t pay attention unless I’m doing many things at once.”
“I pull away from what I’m doing because I’m afraid I’ll miss something better.”
“I’m too busy, but when I do find time I can’t remember what I wanted to do.”
“I’ll never be an expert in anything. I feel like I’m always in a survey class.”
Let’s break it down like it’s 1969
If you’ve ever said these things to yourself, chances are good that you’re a Content creator, a very awesome kind of thinker.
Dissimilar to those people who seem to find and be satisfied with one area of interest, you’re inevitably wired to be interested in many things, and that’s exactly what you’ve been trying to do.
Because your behavior is unpopular — even a little scarey — to the people around you, you’ve been taught that you’re doing something wrong and you must try to change. But what you’ve been told is a mistake — you have been misdiagnosed. You’re a different creature altogether.
What you’ve assumed is a imperfection to overcome by sheer will is actually an exceptional gift. You are the owner of a remarkable, multi talented brain trying to do its work in a world that doesn’t understand who you are and doesn’t know why you behave as you do.
And unless you know who you are, you’re going to agree with them! Not only would that be unfair and inaccurate, it could prevent you from developing your gifts and making your contribution to the world. The stakes are very high.
The super sick part of your impressionable mind
Identifying yourself as a Content creator means changing the way you see yourself in the world. It starts with understanding that you should stop trying to fit into someone else’s creation at once and begin learning about who you really are.
So what’s a true content creator?
Typically these people are labeled to being youtubers. But that’s not all they are.
Content creators love to read and write, to fix and well create things, to design projects and businesses, to cook and sing badly or sing really well, make impressions of people. (You’ll notice though I didn’t use the word “or,” why? Because content creators don’t love to do one thing or the other; they love them all.)
A Content creator might be fascinated with learning how to play soccer or even bocce ball, but once he or she gets good at it, he or she might never play it again.
If they force themselves to make a choice, they are forever discontented. But usually content creators don’t choose anything at all. Their might be a niche And they don’t feel good about it.
Such as Fitness, self growth, cooking, boxing but they truly love it all.
When things get weird…
As kids, most content creators had been having a great time! At school no one objected to their many interests, because every hour of every student’s school day is devoted to a different subject. But at some point in high school or soon after, everyone was expected to make a choice, and that’s when the Content creators ran into trouble. While some people happily narrowed down to one subject, content creators simply couldn’t.
The boring old wisdom was overwhelming and seemed indisputable: If you’re a jack-of-all-trades, you’ll always be a master of none. You’ll become a nonspecialist, a dabbler, a unreliable person — and you’ll never have a decent career.
WRONG. I beg the fuckin differ
Content creators who all through out high school might have been seen as an enthusiastic learner now become a failure because they’re not “so-called” focused.
But one thought won’t leave my mind: If the world had just continued to accept them as they were, they wouldn’t have had any problems.
Finding your imperfections strengths
Almost every case of low self-esteem, shame, frustration, feelings of inadequacy, indecisiveness, and inability to get into action simply disappeared the moment they understood that they were content creators and stopped trying to be somebody else.
Evidently that content creators are an unusual breed of human beings. One reason they don’t recognize themselves is that they don’t often meet people like themselves. Content creators often spend a lot of lonely moments together believing they are not competent enough to master anything in this world.
I’ve spent years agonizing myself and everyone around me with my constant jumping from one thing to another. What I learned about myself eventually is that I knew deep down what I should be doing all along, but was simply too scared to commit myself to it. The constant stream of inspiration such as podcasts, movies tv shows, books and all of these other mediums fuels me with ideas was simply an advanced avoidance technique.
I think I’ve always avoided what I really want to do because I was afraid I’d be mediocre, or fail completely, so I’d keep changing my mind before I produced anything that could be judged.
Depression has laid into me when I don’t create
Depressed people often feel at their worst when their not creating. The thing about depression is that it can play tricks on you and your consciousness that doesn’t allow one to pay attention to anything for long, and some content creators just need to jump from one skip to the other. One moment they’re writing, the next moment they’re acting, the next moment their directing or producing. Their minds need this busyness to feel that after creating they now have gained the permission to exist in this world.
I hope that by having read this you feel empowered and at the very least create one thing today. Maybe it’s a blog post, a video, a relationship or maybe you create a new relationship with yourself.
