So I admit it, I’ve been thinking a lot about my live streaming at the moment. Last week I blogged about my eventual Twitch Revelation. This week, I have come up with three words which I try to keep in my head when I am streaming.

Mantras to live by
I love finding new mantras and then trying to live by them. I’ve already made videos about my ‘Give Out/In’ series and my ‘Mind and Matter’ one. But I wanted to try and sum up what I try to keep in my head when streaming.
Streaming isn't easy for me
While I am writing, creating, streaming I always have this nagging doubt in my mind. A little voice saying give up, you can’t do this, you are not worthy. Self-esteem is such a precious thing and I am insanely jealous of anyone who has this in abundance.
Before, during and after, I am constantly plagued by the self doubt and frequently I have to struggle to continue to stream or blog. Life would be easier just not doing any of it, sitting in a corner of my flat and … well … just staying in my own world. But I am not prepared to let my dwindling self-esteem win.
The 3 'P's
I made this a subtitle so you could, if you wish, just jump to this point. These are the three ‘P’s which I try to keep in my head while streaming. They are what keeps me going and streaming – I guess they must be quite powerful because I am still here!
It is possible to have an easier life. But it is only by challenging ourselves, failing and learning that we actually develop as people.
It doesn’t really matter what keeps you going everyday, whether it is similar mantra to my own or your own well chosen words. The important thing is that you do keep going and strive to achieve your goals
I hope that sharing my ‘P’s with you have helped. There are some empty comment boxes below so if you have some of your own don’t forget to share them with the community.
Until next time – be positive, promote and persevere.
