If this is the first time you have been on this site, you probably don’t notice anything different. If you’ve been following for a while you have probably noticed a lack of posts as of late from The Pride.
While I could go on about hustling and being too busy to post anything lately, that would be a cop out. While I’ll admit that I’m the type of person who doesn’t always have a lot to say, the fact of the matter is that I have too much to say. Over the course of the last few weeks, I have written many posts and had many ideas for other posts, but they have not seen the light of day. Why, you ask? Because they weren’t worthy of being posted.
I have written many posts and poured an insane amount of emotion into them. When I was finished writing them, I read through them and felt unease and discontent. They seemed as though I was just ranting, going on about this and that with no flow or direction. I could post everything I have written lately but it wouldn’t be right. And that is the lesson of the day.
Always strive for perfection!
I have seen on other sites in the past, the writer put out post after post, daily, several times a day. Some writers can make this work for them, and others not so much. Some writers bog their site down with so much content that after a while no one is interested. Some of them turn into a Facebook status with posts of every rant, feeling, and emotion.
My approach is slightly different. I always strive for the perfect piece of art, the very best work that I can produce. I am a perfectionist. There will never be any time on The Pride that you will see daily posts, I’m just not that kind of guy. But when I do post I will make it count. I will research, write, edit, and rewrite until I get the result I want.
Outside of The Pride and the blogging world in general, you must always strive for perfection, no matter what it is that you do. Whether it is your job, your business, your side hustle, you family, or your friends, you must go out of your way to bring the very best. In these times, far too many people seek the easy way out, looking to do the minimum to survive. I advocate doing the maximum. When you go out of your way to overproduce, to go above and beyond what is expected, you gain respect. You gain the respect, trust, and admiration of everyone around you. People can see your passion and raw emotion.
If you want to be the best and most valuable person at your place of employment, go above and beyond. If you aspire to run a profitable business that is considered an authority in the field, go above and beyond. If you wish to build a rock hard body of steel, leave your inhibitions at the door and grab it by the throat! Whatever it is that you do in life, seize the day, knock down the target, go full force, go for the jugular, and always strive for perfection!!
Rise up and stay strong!!
