Grinding

I really want to post that classic song up by the Clipse, but I decided that I’ll keep it clean on here because the grinding that I mean isn’t the “grinding” that they were rappin’ about. haha…But, if you need a fix I’ll direct you to the site that has no problem sharing it! Please be warned, it’s not safe for work so keep the volume on low or use headphones…

Anyway, so I just got back from vacation (**sadness**) and I must say that I have come back with a new resolve. I have hit on 9 out of 10 goals that I’ve set for this year but I think that I need to take those goals to the next level. The first thing though: I have a ton of classwork that I need to catch up on! haha…Not always fun but it’s necessary. So tonight I will definitely be grinding on that.

Coming back refreshed and refocused had me thinking about what it is that truly gets me in “grinding” mode. I’ve been able to get a lot done over time, but have had tremendous trouble with consistency. Isn’t this a typical problem for some of us that call ourselves artists? I’ve just accepted that this will probably always be something that I struggle with, haha. However, I think it’s just as important to know what that thing is that gets you back on track and motivated. For me it’s a combination of an internal need to live up to my potential and having good people around that encourage me and hold me accountable. Sometimes it also helps me to see what other people are doing with their talents.

What’s that thing that gets you motivated to work towards your goals? Is it as simple as a “Hang in there, baby?” poster?

Or are you someone that needs a more hands-on approach?

Which one are you??

Really think about it! It’s good to know because then you can start to make conscious efforts to keep whatever “it” is around to help push yourself. The sooner you figure it out the better!

That was just something that was on my mind today as I am about to start getting caught up on my homework and get more stuff to show you on the blog. Don’t be afraid to take that next step towards what you want to do!
