Why I Don't Celebrate My Accomplishments
It's hard for me to celebrate publishing my books and getting my books noticed. I always feel there is work for me to do and more goals to accomplish. Every book published, new video I do on YouTube (www.youtube.com/c/jamellcrouthers), poem that I post on Instagram (www.instagram.com/aquarianmind), there's an opportunity for me to reach someone or impact someone's life.
In my own little way, celebrating makes you complacent, it can make you lazy and allow your head to get bigger than what it is. So I try to stay as humble as possible and keep grinding through everything I have to do. I spend most of my days writing down things I need to do and goals I want to accomplish for the week, it keeps me going. I'm basically in competition with myself and how much I can get done or how much I can write.
My writing book that I keep with me all of the time, I know that an idea can come up, and I can write down something important that I have to do. When you find your love and passion in life, you find yourself not celebrating until you reach the top of the mountain. Right now, I'm climbing this mountain and it's a journey to get to the top. And even when I get to the stop, I won't slow down, I'll keep going to make sure I stay on top of that mountain I climbed.
While my books are in poetry format, that doesn't mean I won't stop going hard to get my books noticed. I have different ways and tactics that I'm currently using to get myself noticed and get myself to where I want to be.
So I won't celebrate until millions of people are reading my books, my stories and knowing that there are many societal issues that need addressing.
Be good everyone and follow your dreams.
