Here’s the thing with the #creatoreconomy, or #buildinpublic, or trying to launch a startup: there’s the inevitability of burnout.
Most people don’t discuss it. Several folks shy away from talking about it. It makes them feel vulnerable.
But vulnerability is an asset – it only shows that you are human. Talking about your own vulnerability or even acknowledging that you have it is taboo.
Apparently…it’s a superpower.
There’s an entire thread of conversations that followed when I opened up about it on LinkedIn
So, I thought I should share my thoughts on it. If you never expressed yourself and just felt it, here’s something for us all this weekend:
👉 Give yourself the due credit you deserve.
👉 Feeling exhausted, the #burnout, the #impostersyndrome – they are all natural. What you don’t know (and trust me, I didn’t for a while) is that “everyone” feels it. Everyone.
👉 You do you. 👊
👉 Reframe negative thoughts into positive ones (Thank you Salina
Negative: I am building a SaaS tool that’s going to land in an already crowded market.
Positive: Despite how crowded it is, my SaaS product will show how simplicity and focus on “What it does best…without feature bloat” will still make its way through.
👉 Talk to someone; it really helps. I am the friend you never knew you had. You always welcome to connect on Twitter
and open up (I’ll always support and root for you).
What are you going to do?
