Hello little ones!
Today I just wanted to write a little about this video, and I know it's in Swedish but don't worry haha. It's basically about "hard work beats talent, when talent doesn't work hard". Therese who made the video talked about how she's always felt like she's not talented at anything growing up, but basically she works 10 times as hard at stuff as other people which is why she comes out on top.
She also talks about how other YouTubers complain about not getting enough viewers or get paid enough etc etc. But if you don't work hard and just rely on talent, you'll just get so far until it stops. She spends so much time analyzing her audience and statistics, doing research for videos etc. She basically works 10-12 hours, 7 days/week.
And well, what does this have to do with me?
Basically I don't think I work hard at all, and this video just confirms that. I mean, I already know that I don't do everything in my power to produce the best possible content on YouTube or my blog or anywhere. It's not a surprise to me. But I do get frustrated with the fact that a very very small percent of my subscribers watch my videos and maybe this is the reason? That I don't work hard enough?
But then again I try to produce content that I like. If I would just make videos that people want to watch then that would be extremely boring for me. But no I do not think that the quality is the best that I can do. However, I don't feel like there's much I can do about it right now. There is no place in this apartment I can film where I really like the background and think that it looks as fantastic as I want it to look. So already there I get discouraged 'cause the videos don't turn out the way I want them. But maybe I should work harder to fix it? But am I not doing everything in my power?
I don't know.
I just hate the feeling that I'm giving 50% of my full potential right now, if even that. I can do soooo much better, but I can't physically do things the way I want them right now. So how the heck do I solve it?
No clue whatsoever. I feel a bit helpless in this situation and the fact that nothing is getting better isn't exactly encouraging haha. But we'll see. If you know Swedish, watch the video above. x
