A lot of people are wondering why I keep making videos. Not saying a lot of your guys, my simpletons haha, but rather my friends and peers. Although I am steadily growing, my numbers are not huge, and so a lot of the people around me see this as a waste of time or maybe even a failed effort. And I see their point, if I didn’t see the whole picture, then I would probably ask myself the same question.
But here is the whole picture.
- I knew it would be like this.
Whenever you start something with the mind to make it national, global, big, you have to understand that you will not see any major progress for at least 2 years. I have figured, 2 years for a youtube channel by looking at other channels. If you want to start a business, you are going to have to keep at it for nearly a decade before it becomes huge. However, as long as you have a good product, everything else will fall into place as long as you keep at it.
This may seem discouraging, but it is actually very encouraging. Because when I first started out with 0 subscribers, and did not have any new subscribers for months at a time, I knew what was happening. It’s not that I was failing, it was that I was improving with a different metric. My growth was not in my subscribers, but in the quality of my videos. The knowledge of how much time you will need to put in will give you a peace of mind because you know the reality. You are indeed growing and you just need to keep at it. Keep coming right back to work and get that much closer to your goals.
- I have a good product.
As I have said in my previous point, if you want to succeed in creating something big, then you need to put in a lot of hours, and you need a good product. I don’t care how much time you put in, you are not going to make people by a bad product. And how do I know I have a good product? From you simpletons.
Your comments on my video of how much my videos have helped you guys. The simpletons that watch a couple of my videos, and then come back after 3 months to tell me that I had a positive effect on their lives. I keep at my youtube channel and my blog because I am actually helping people.
Have you ever heard of those people that said, “even if I help only one person, it would have been all worth it in the end.”, that is how I feel. And the fact that I am helping multiple just shows me that I am on the right track.
So I am going to keep at it, and I hope you guys keep at it or start something new while knowing you are going to have to put in the time to achieve your dreams.
It’s that simple,
