Ending My Twitch Streamer Dream
As I was saying before, I need to work on my ONE dream only and provide total focus to enter deep work when blogging. Thus, my other dreams such as becoming a YouTuber or Twitch streamers will end today. But Why? Because this is what I learned after reading a book called Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown.
From that book, I learned about a chapter called Trade-Off and Greg said you that I can only become a blogger or a streamer. But, you cannot be both. So, pick a side and fight with all your might with the side you choose on. And, if you had read my new beginning post, you would know why I choose to blog.
Although, the main reason I pick ONE dream only is that so that I won’t dissipate my energy, time, money and resources into all of my dreams. With all the energy being dissipated equally, my dreams won’t go far at all. I had experienced first hand when I try to make all dreams come true. I understand perfectly why Greg said that.
Therefore, when I only have ONE THING to do, my energy, time and money will focus on blogging and with persistent efforts and patience, I WILL AND I CAN DO IT. But the real question is:
How can I make 5000 USD/month with blogging when I only make 20 USD in a year of blogging?
This is the ONE goal that I will be focus on – 5000 USD/ month. I would take it as my current biggest challenges in my blogging journey. Don’t worry, I will find the WAY.
Why did I quit being a PS4 streamer?
Actually, I don’t just quit being a Twitch streamer just because of trade-off. I had my own other reasons and when I had a brainstorming session with myself, being a PS4 streamer dream is still uncertain to me. I had my doubts because:
- There is a bug on ps4 stream which is the viewers cannot send comments on my Twitch channel because an error has occurred. I don’t know why but I had been Googling for the answer for a few days and tried many things to solve this problem. But, the problem still won’t solve.
- The lack of internet. Yeah, the second reason is about the internet. Apparently, my home wifi is not wide enough and my PS4 keeps keep disconnecting from WIFI.
I had always been a dreamer since I was a child. Every time, I watch any cool movies or TV series, I dream to become like them or even better. But, when I started working on it, I know how hard it was and most of the time stopped half way. But no more. I will not stop blogging until I get that 5000 USD/ month before 31 DEC 2019. It’s either I get that 5000 USD/ month or I die first. There is no other way.
The truth is, I got to accept hardship as necessary and I keep my faith even when everything has fallen apart. I will keep on fighting for what I believe is right. That is what made me courageous and fearless. I fight for what I believe in even when you don’t have the power to do so – that is what courage means. I don’t take hardship personally, everything is just strictly business.
And when things started to change, it gets a little easier as you get stronger. But I got to do it every day and that is the HARD part. I have to be willing because if I’m not willing, other people are willing to do it for me and I won’t let that to happen. Your “will” is a powerful weapon so choose your target wisely because it is limited.
