Being bloggers is not always easy. It takes a lot of guts to finally put your work out into the world for people to read. When I started it wasn’t so simple for me. I lacked courage and belief in myself. At some points I didn’t believe my voice was worth listening to.
I made a list of my favourite quotes under Fear, Uncertainty and Feeling like giving up. This is because they are what most new bloggers struggle with.
It took time for me to realise that everyone’s voice was worth giving a chance. For that reason, i compiled ten (10) of my favourite quotes to give other new bloggers the chance to know that all the struggles would be worth it and that their unique voice should be given a chance!
We as bloggers always face uncertainty. I, for instance, am never sure if a post is ready for the world so it takes me weeks to decide on when a post should come out.
Nearly all of us would like to be at the end of the story, because to live in the middle of it is to live in suspense and uncertainty about what will happen.°•°Rebecca Solnit
The uncertainty, the void, is the perfect place from which to create. It is the place where you can re-invent yourself.°•°Laurence Galian
“It is better to explore a gainful uncertainty than to sit in a painful certainty.”
Fear is the worse! Maybe it due to the fact that we care too much about what people will say about us or what people will think about the post.
“The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”°•°Nelson Mandela
“We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”°•°Marilyn Monroe
“Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.”°•°Judy Blume
“He who is not everyday conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.”°•°Ralph Waldo Emerson
3. Feeling like giving up:
Starting out, i always felt like giving up, I still do, but remember this: if you give up know, you’ll never know how this would have turned out!
“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.”Confucius
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”°•°Thomas Edison
“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.”°•°Winston Churchill
Here are posts that i loved but couldn’t be added to the first Ten.
“Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”Harriet Beecher Stowe
The test of a strong spirit is that it can live with uncertainty.Marty Rubin
Being a very succesful blogger does not just happen over night. We have to face many things and go through many many things till we may finnaly realise our dream. Don’t let the fear and uncertainity make you give up!
