Alright, so this is going to be a bit different.
When I started the Evolutionary Mind, I did so with the idea that I was going to share my thoughts on various topics that are seen as more controversial. With the topics, being able to convey my thoughts and make everything thought provoking as well.
Well, we are now moving onto being an actual site/blog for a year. Which seems like it was just yesterday when things just started.
The problem with all of it is that I stopped writing in the original idea that I had for the site. That same idea that when I do go back to the roots, brings in more than the average post on this site. No, what I’ve seen start happening ( without realizing for the most part) is that things are heading to being not just for me, or for the reason I wanted the site to be; but for bringing in views and revenue. Yes, those are important, but the feeling that I get when I really write something for me, and that is around the original idea (See 1 Step Forward or The Truth Behind the 2016 Election).
When I write like that, nothing else matters, I am writing to get the sometimes crazy thoughts out of my head and for you guys to read and in turn relate to.
Yes, I am hoping that with some of the works I’ve been able to help motivate some of your guys with the “Self Motivation” type posts, but that isn’t why I started.
What I’ve focused way too much time and effort on is making everything easier for the masses to find, through SEO and making everything easier to share, that gave everything more of a forced feel.
Yes, it made it “Good content” but it didn’t give me the same satisfaction that writing for expression, and showing that the thoughts that I have really can make others think as well.
I feel as all of our have that ability to go astray from where we originally see ourselves and our projects and businesses, but its different when I’ve been more of a contradiction that most.
I preach so much about not losing track of who you are, and what you’re doing and the dreams that you have. Yet, with this site, I’ve lost track of that. And with that I apologize very much so.
We’ve grown so much this year, starting at 0 and gained nearly 4000 Followers and having an amazing viewership, breaking 10,000 views and even 15,000 views in a month, thats just crazy.
When I started from nothing, and that is what I’ve lost sight of, the site is there for me to express what I’m thinking and feeling and my viewpoints on certain topics, not creating or forcing content that I don’t get the same satisfaction from. I want to give you guys the best, and the big thing that you all have started following me and this site for.
So, moving forward it is going to be just that.
The big takeaway I want you guys to have from this is to really never forget why you started something. I have forgotten and I do apologize to all of you guys (and girls of course) for that. When you start something with a specific reason why you did so, never forget that reason. Even when the times get tough, you have your reasons for everything, and that is what drives and motivates you.
Give yourself the opportunity to be the best at what you do, and never forget why you started. Give yourself the opportunity to continue fulfilling your reasons why you started.
Keep that in mind, and power through all of the times where you start to stray from your goals and dreams. If you can do that, you will be able to accomplish anything that you set out to do. No matter what it is, give yourself that benefit, yes it happens, we do forget, but always take the time to remember.
My reasons for doing this is to make you think, and if I have done so then I have accomplished. It goes back to when I wrote about What Inspires me, and that was you. I did stray from what you’ve found at the site, and I am going to definitely be making that up to you.
Thank you for everything, and from here on out, you will get what you signed up for The Best and Most thought provoking content you have read in a while.
