A couple of years ago I injured my shoulder. I don't know how but assumed it happened at the gym. My rotator cuff hurt severely when I did any type of chest exercise. It sucked.
I was used to benching a certain amount of weight, but had to cut it by more than 50%. I can tell you my ego didn't like it one bit. I still wanted to workout and knew how to rehab my shoulder. Within a couple of weeks, my ego agreed to the necessary decreased weight. But with every gym session I added 2.5 pounds to my bench. Eventually, I lost track of how much weight I benched and focused on keeping healthy, writing, working, etc.
Several months later, I noticed I was benching a lot more weight than I'd had in my life. And I workout by myself. I can't find a training partner that has a similar schedule to mine. This taught me something.
Small adjustments can add up.
Writing theEpisodeshasn't yielded the audience I was expecting. That was my first mistake, expecting. But the audience has grown little by little, even though not all vote. Despite my desire to bring fame and fortune to my book, I realized something. My disappointment always vanished when I sat down to write. My heartbreak wilted when I went to the gym. My love for story, my love for writing, my love and gratitude for the imagination given to me is precious.
Every day I take steps toward my wants and desires. Every day I do my best to release my expectations by doing the things I love, andexpressing myself honestly.Every day I go to my day job knowing that I'm providing for my ability to live my night job (job is totally the wrong word here). Every day small adjustments will be made because small adjustments make a huge difference towardsuccess.
