Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down - Just keep at it!

Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down – Just keep at it!

My business and blogging career has grown and grown as of late and it’s been a very positive experience. The continual exposure has brought me new clients, reactivated earlier clients and kept me top of mind and on the map when it comes to Marketing Mentors about town.

As I have been going more in the Business Chamber and Blogging / Video direction it has created it’s own new challenges which have inspired me to work on a much deeper level. One big part of this strategy and new life play out for me is the “Ups and Downs” of it.

Some days my videos go crazy, get me lots of views and some really just wane in what they do. I have had some weeks were my videos are viral and some weeks – where they get minimal views and it can get you questioning things.

My big lesson of all this has been running with the highs and lows of the experience of posting posts. I have found it easy to make some posts and get amazing views and think “Wow, I am awesome” and then at times – really struggle to get views.

There are a lot of reasons for this – anything from the popularity of my videos, timing, whether I have other videos going viral at the time (which seems to lift everything up), the amount of negative feedback I may get on videos, positive feedback or whatever the case maybe.

Basically, it varies for a range of many factors outside of one’s control which can play with one’s mind.

I have learned that you must not let that happen. That is, you maybe say will visit X number of networking events, post Y times to Facebook each day and you will get natural ups and downs.

You will have many days where you get nothing, then all of a sudden you pick up very massive and awesome accounts.

It happens in what we do and that’s great!

My big lesson with all of this? Depending on your nature it can play with your emotions and that is great. Know that, deal with it – and regardless, keep pumping out the posts / marketing / visting events (or whatever the case).

I have had days where I have felt “No way”, but I stuck at it, I strike gold and then I am back in the zone.

Just keep at it! We have our average, our awful and our awesome.

Using Facebook as an example for me? At least 5 x videos a day. Some bomb, most go well. Some go crazy. Regardless of how I feel? Just keep putting them out.

Love your work, thanks for the read, please share this away and stay awesome friends.

  1. Hi Edward,

    Congrats! Love your “deal with it – and regardless, keep pumping out the posts / marketing / visiting events” advice!

    Which successful person has not gone through ups and downs?

    In direct sales, Jeffrey Combs, a 7-figure income earner and mentor teaches us to be in the zone and have that ‘flat line’ effect. That is, we keep our focus on the tasks and not get carried away by the excitement of the ups or get discouraged by the downs!

    In essence, mastering our emotion for success!

    • That is a great one and love it! Flat Lining is great. I am still a bit high / low which sucks. But way better than I used too. Thank you Viola Tam The Business Mum! You rock 🙂
