How did you feel?
Did you panic? Did you feel the pain?
Live! With Fear is on the first page of Google!
I was pleasantly surprised as I found my site on page 1 of Google as I search for the term “live with fear”.
I always knew it was difficult to reach there and I didn’t thought that I am able to get ranked less say first page.
Since that day, I was constantly searching Google for my website. I felt a exhilarated when the ranking moved up, I felt sad when the ranking moved down, I felt comforted when the ranking went back up. It was like watching the stock market!
One day I was searching on Google and my website totally disappeared!! from the searches.
I was devastated!!! I searched and I searched but there was still no sign of Live! With Fear.
How would you feel if you gain a windfall only to lose it all?
I feared that I will never get the ranking back again.
As I sulked about the issue, I suddenly asked myself why I set up the website in the first place.
Was it to be vanity project and brag to the whole world that I am on Google?
No! I started on the project to give fear an avenue to be heard. I wanted to be of service to myself and others.
If I can get on Google once, I will be able to get on Google again. How? By focusing on doing the daily efforts, contemplating on the fears that I have surfaced, listen to what it is trying to say. and address its concerns.
Since that day I stopped looking at Live! With Fear’s Google ranking. A couple of days later, a friend of mine who wanted to see what the website is about, said: “Is this the one?” She was pointing to no. 6 of page one of the search results. I am back!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, what can you do when you lose what you have gained either by surprise or through your own devices?
Perhaps we can focus on doing the things that got us there in the first place, perhaps do it even better so that we can reduce the chances of losing it again.
In our quest for success, we can only focus on the daily efforts, have faith in ourselves, in the things we do. Keep track of we are. Adjust our bearings if necessary. Celebrate every little milestones that achieve and continue doing our daily efforts.
Next time if you lose something in your life, perhaps you can tell your yourself:” Since I got it once, I am able to get it again. All I need to do is to focus on the daily efforts.”
Good luck on your journey!
