“WHAT MOTIVATES YOU?”
For a few seconds, I was blank; because the first thing that came to mind sounded off.
Yet that was the one true thing, and so I went for it, “FEEDBACKS” (I told you it was off).
My years as an undergraduate; I majored in Economics, which was my “dream course” since junior secondary school (because not to brag BUT your girl was acing double column cash book left right and center). Up until my third year in the Uni and I wasn’t so sure what I wanted off Economics again. Fast forward to the fourth year and basically everyone I knew already had a direction as to what they wanted (Consulting, Finance, HR, Fashion School, Communications). I was just standing in the middle, having absolutely NO IDEA where to turn. Nothing about the branches of Economics tickled my fancy. I kept asking myself “Ayo, what are you passionate about!”
And there it was CONTENT CREATING.
Finding this out, I still had a lot of fussy thoughts (is this a good enough choice or was I just finding an easy way?). I had even had a big conversation with my parents asking if I was sure I wanted to ditch “Economics” for this. Truth was, I wasn’t sure myself.
I took the time out to ask experienced creators and I would always get a similar response “if this is it what you really love, then work towards making the best out of it”. I took the initiative, tried not to overthink things and built upon it.
My tagline then moved to CONTENT/DIGITAL MARKETING.
Four months into it, and I’m amazed sometimes at how well I’m doing, working on successful digital campaigns, creative directions. And what keeps this moving is the FEEDBACKS.
FEEDBACKS, for now, are what motivates me. It makes “the doubts” wear off gradually. It makes me confident that I made this choice and I’m on the right track. I have A LOT to learn but I know I’m in my “naturally ease” zone.
Do you know what else motivates me? You!
Because you’re reading this blog, when I check the number of views, it hits different in my heart. You make me want to make contents
