We have all experienced temporary blocks to our creative writing flow when our minds seem to freeze on us. Sometimes we might need to take a break, exercise or involve in a different activity that helps us to relax so that we can recharge and get those creative juices flowing once more. Do you have a mentor who is teaching you new approaches to your business? What gets you excited about your training? Make a mental note of what you are learning and doing before your ideas are forgotten. Next, use those ideas for content creation. If you are looking for a free give-away such as an e-book, this could be a start.

There have been instances where YouTube tutorial videos were instrumental in saving me a significant amount of trial and error while learning from the mistakes of the presenters. Why re-invent the wheel when you can follow a proven path? Best of all, you will enjoy sharing ideas that save time, money and effort.

So, be like a sponge and be ready to soak up the knowledge that offers tips of the trade. These are golden nuggets that you can share with your list. Failures serve to put you and others on guard against mistakes. Many business owners have triumphed through incredible odds, and their stories may help to reboot the thinking of those who are thinking of giving up.

Now, think about your accomplishments, and create a clear outline of what led you to your success. You could create a checklist which provides a clear path to approach a problem in a certain way. Consider the challenges that you overcame. Stories that consist of triumph against strong odds is a fail-safe way to inspire, challenge and motivate the minds of those seeking to improve their situations in life.

While chatting in an entrepreneur forum you might hear about a problem that other members are facing, if you have a unique solution, this could be an opportunity to help others become unstuck. Later, you could use your response as part of your content writing. Or, if you have failed at a process, why not share your story? Others will appreciate your helpfulness so that they can avoid a mistake that could be a setback. If you were able to correct the problem, remember to share that also. As you share and interact with others, be on the lookout for great content. You would be surprised at how rapidly your idea bank can grow as you record what is happening around you. Remain focused as you gather stories of interest. You will be an inspiration, and your followers will thank you.

Focus Only On What You Can Control

As you read this blog’s issue, I’d like you to be mindful to keep your personal and business life in perspective when you faced with obstacles you cannot control. Adverse situations can influence the way you think, react and relate to the world. Moreover, a lack of focus can affect your own happiness. Don’t get stuck in overthinking and analyzing. It is incredibly unproductive and will impede your growth potential.

Similarly, self-doubt can get you stuck in your online business, and make you procrastinate. If you think you cannot make it, sadly, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Creative thinking, strong focus, and guidance from a successful mentor can make you less susceptible to negative thinking and more resilient to adversity. We are all allotted twenty-four hours in one day; what you do with your time is up to you. Life often presents the challenges of competing demands; deadline pressures often make us wish we that we had more time. The ability to control time is not within anyone’s power, but what we do with our time unquestionably is. You cannot control the customer service given to your customers by affiliate product owners, but you can control which products to promote and, thus, increase the odds of customers receiving superb service. You can control how you earn and invest money, but you cannot control the economy. What your competitors do is beyond your control, but you can control your own business and your own destiny.

Life offers unexpected bumps and turns along the path. Some of your experiences will be exhilarating, refreshing and inspiring. However, how do you mentally prepare yourself to face the challenges of inadequacy and adversity? There are no easy answers, but you can choose to react to what is happening around you and learn from the mistakes of the past. Let experience be your guide. When a situation does not appear to be working well, do things differently. You will not experience different results with proven ineffective methods.

Success and fulfillment require self-discipline. The driving force behind your actions could be desire or obligation; nonetheless, you control your destiny.

When you become less reactive and more proactive in your approach to life, you become less stressful, and life will take on a deeper meaning. Consequently, you will experience a healthier, rewarding and more fulfilling life.
