That I’m useless.
I look at the projects I’m creating and I look at them as if they were the worst thing in the world. As if they’re hurting people, as if I’m hurting people.
So I procrastinate – I go on Facebook, post a couple of things, respond to some emails, and then end up on Facebook again.
And then I question myself and my motives:
Why am I doing this?
Is my knowledge even helping anybody?
Am I worthless?
From my experience, the answers are something I constantly think about. And some days the answers are positive, and some days the answers are negatives.
A lot of times, the negativity gets to me. I’ll get hate mail, telling me that my articles are pieces of shit and that I should go kill myself.
But then right after, I’ll get a long email asking for help because my articles resonated so well with them and they want more.
It’s a mindfuck.
I get lost in my own mind of knowing what’s right and what’s wrong, and I question if I should continue to coach men and continue to write articles.
The answer always come back to the same thing: YES. Even when all the negativity comes in.
I love helping other guys improve their lives, improve their relationships, improve their minds.
I love creating articles and connecting with other people who are actively changing the world.
It is awesome and I wouldn’t change it for the world. And hearing from you guys who’s lives I’ve changed already tells me that it’s worth it.
But the more I spread my material out into the Internets, a lot more negativity comes in…and it puts a hamper on my ability to really create well and serve you completely.
But I know there’s no such thing as shadows – only an absence of light.
So I’ve come to see that these days where my creation lacks is when I forget about my Why and the reality of the impact I’ve had on others.
It’s not that I’m not creating useful material – In fact, I love doing this. I love talking about improving our lives as men and coaching guys in areas where I’ve had trouble in the past.
It just seems difficult when I’m lacking that positive support that I pretend I don’t need.
So to get this aspect more clear in my head and to increase my motivation for helping you…I want to hear my impact on you directly from, well, YOU!
Here’s what I need you to do:
Leave a comment on this article with how you’re life has improved from reading my articles.
Have you learned anything new?
How has your life changed?
What is it about my site that resonates with you?
What do you like?
As an incentive to help me see the change I’m making, I’m going to give the best commenter a no-strings-attached, 2-hour conversation (valued at $250) to help break through any problems that you’re having — with women, with your social life, with work, with your health, with whatever you want to talk about.
The reason I’m doing this is
1) to see HOW I’m affecting you guys (and gals), and
2) to get motivated to keep on going. I have some amazing things in the works, and I could use the extra push to get there.
So what do you say, will you help me out?
Leave a comment below and let me know. I’ll pick the winner by Friday, November 1st for the free coaching experience.
November 1st: The contest is now closed. You’ll hear from me soon if you were picked for the coaching call.Join Over 10,000 Monthly Readers And Subscribe Today
