There are No Small Creators. This is a valid statement for anyone who is trying to create content on the internet.
If you search the above hyperling, you’ll find people on YouTube that are small creators. They are going through the daily grind to try and make it happen. Creating content takes time, and they are buying out time to work hard and make it work.
If you are in a creative space and are working hard to create something for yourself or your family take heart in knowing that you are not alone.
My friend, Jacky, recently posted the image below. She runs a clothing boutique on instagram called @vintage_and_modern (Please check it out and throw some likes her way).
We are all part of a community that lives and exists together. We share the same spaces both physically on this planet and virtually online. If you see content of a person that’s trying to work hard and do something, can you take time to give them a like? Support their efforts – no doubt it will be appreciated.
A wise man once said that “you learn more about life when you lose than when you win”. This statement holds many truths. Losing teaches you how to win; it helps you to maintain humility in the face of success. Yet the little wins in life help us to keep going. It keeps us eager to contend.
It doesn’t take a lot of time to show interest in the efforts of others. I know people who guard their likes as if it’s going to cost them something if they give them out. Liking content isn’t about curating a careful collection of things that you award your own “badge of approval”. Rather, can you show appreciation for those who are trying to do something?
“It’s the little wins that help the doers to succeed.”My opinion
If someone makes something that you see, and if you morally are not at odds with it, can you give it a like? Nothing deep – just something to think about.
It takes a lot of time and energy to put yourself out there. We hear a lot about hustle, and about doing what it takes to win. Stories of people who fail every day just to keep killing it because they want it more than anyone else. The takeaway – it takes work to succeed at something.
But here is the other thing, it takes support from a community and from friends to make things a success. There is no such thing as a Self-Made Man.
Nothing happens by accident. Every success is deliberate and it takes someone or something to make it work. You play a valuable role in helping the collective of people who are trying to do something. In the words of Peter McKinnon:
“Hit the like button, smash it – if that’s something that you are into”Peter McKinnon
Creators please keep going. Stay strong, hungry and foolish. Don’t rest on your laurels rather keep working hard every day and enjoy the ride ♡
