Just want to say to all those people that are stressed, struggling, feeling run down with internet marketing (or anything else for that matter) -to take a step back from it - a day away can prove to be beneficial!
I am currently in South America travelling, well the travelling has actually stopped and I am static, trying to build up enough money so I can get a flight or several long (very very long - we're talking 22hr) buses to my next destination. So whilst it sounds very exciting being out here it has it's downside, I look like the loser traveller that is obsessed with my netbook and not making friends or seeing the sights!
Yesterday I joined forces with a fellow traveller after some persuasion to visit a village further inland, I agreed and took my netbook with me only to find out there was no internet. At first I was horrified as I thought about all the stuff I could be doing but as I was there I decided to go with the flow and I truly relaxed. We ate well, went for walks and took in the scenery and I meditated with no distraction.
That evening before going to sleep I had 2 major creative thoughts to do with IM that had never entered my mind before, I slept well and didn't over think them and then this morning they were still there as strong as ever. I spent the morning mind mapping the ideas and I really truly believe these will come up trumps
I am obviously now back on the internet and have started to get drowned in all the information again but I now have a direction I know I want to go in!
So to all those that are feeling down just try spend a whole day away from the internet, tv...etc and listen to your mind - it probably has something interesting to say to you!
Also - I'm sending positive 'you can do it' vibes to all that have read this post. *ping*
