    A few weeks ago I stumbled upon the “what’s one thing holding you back from success?” Thread and could empathize with so many of the models there. Someone recommended starting a thread to see what people are doing about it(the things that are holding them back) ****i couldn’t find one but if you do feel free to redirect me***** while things like mental and physical illness aren’t things you can simply change what other changes have you made to your life, schedule, mindset, routine that are pushing you closer to success?
    As a new model I feel like I’ve tried so many different things and every new change feels better like I’m getting somewhere and if I feel like I’m taking steps backwards I research and switch it up again.
    I was having issues with consistency, anxiety, depression these last few months.
    What I’m doing about it?/what I’ve done....
    I’ve rearranged my finances and vanilla job so that I have set times and days scheduled for camming. I also started setting up a list of content I want to record, things I want to research, content that needs to be edited basically anything relating to sexwork etc so if I’m laying around thinking I don’t have anything to do I just check that list and start working on the things I feel like tackling. I’ve also gotten a bit more creative about cam angles (I live in a trailer and there is limited space) It’s only been a few days but so far I’ve made good progress. I lost some regulars because I had to change my times BUT I feel SO much better and know new regulars will come.

    I haven't fully implemented it yet, but I've vastly changed my attitude surrounding camming.

    It's less of a "This is a secret about me" to "This is part of me, but not all of me" mentality. Like, I am a sex worker. But I'm still me. I've always associated who I was with what I did. Now I just want it to be another quirk.

    It helps me because it makes me less anxious and I change my mind less about how much exposure I am getting.

    1. Stop hiding it, this is what I do, this is me, in all my splendor, and it is both terrible and awesome. :D

    2. Take the absolute best care of myself possible, drink water, eat less salt, got to the gym and lift heavy weights 2-3 times per week, call friends, sleep, stretch, have meal replacement shakes and immunity boosters and alllll that.

    3. Be a professional, incorporate my business, keep every single receipt, let the "business" make money while I sit back and take a small meager paycheck. Invest back in toys, lighting, my hair, my face, my gym membership, anything that will make me healthier and happier, hell, the book "Verbal Judo"....

    4. Getting better with stating boundaries, without apology. Period.

    5. Moved into a new space conducive to camming, most of the time, but more so that there is never anything to hide here. If I was in a place where I could cam 24/7, I probably would. Most of the time is good, it lends to built in breaks.

    6. Get allll the social media and don't be afraid to put myself out there, realize that some people are HATERS ie negative people and are going to hate me NO MATTER WHAT I do, so I might as well do me.

    Good luck out there. :h:

    Since motivation and discipline is my issue, I'm working on getting back into streaming near daily, even if it's only for 10-20 minutes. I find that once I tell myself to "just get online for a few minutes," I end up staying for at least an hour anyway since the hardest part of *getting online* is done and over with, and time flies by when you're having fun.

    Good luck everyone! Every small step forward is still progress :happy:

    I forgot to mention being willing to pay my dues. If they want a group show, fine, if they want me to bark like a dog, I bark like a dog. Saying yes to anything reasonable and not being a princess. Making my videos affordable as hell. Making videos daily. Giving up dating and all other personal luxuries while I focus on this, but still keeping time for good friends so I don't go nutty. Watching porn to get turned on as hell as well as not actually getting laid in my personal life so I is thirrrrsty. :D

    I'm working on being flexible. I started out trying to cam six days a week and my health tanked immediately; I used what I learned from those first hours on cam and started to focus on putting in quality time on cam every other day.
    Now I use non-cam days to stay on top of housework, budgeting, groceries, cooking, gardening, and socializing with my partner and friends. Having my life sorted out makes me happy, and I think that shows on cam.

    Started waking up at 6am and camming first thing in the morning every day. It’s been awesome- I’m making more money than ever before (on cam), and by 10am I’m already finished earning my money for the day and have the rest of my time to focus on other stuff. It’s amazing!

    I struggle with positivity and procrastination, which in turn lead to embarassment and avoidance, which leads to depression. I've started making small steps and it shows. I changed my wallpaper on my computer to a slideshow of different images, positive, funny, or both - it helps more than I thought it would. They certainly help me get into "work mode". I bought a big whiteboard and laid out all my inner work ramblings that I tend to be anxious about and mull over constantly. It has my schedule, to do list, video/photo themes, an earnings bar graph that I fill in with colors as I earn, and some other stuff. I am very visual and it helps me feel better by, "Yeah, I only made $10, but look how much it takes up on the bar!" and I don't feel so bad. Also, I've more or less made, "It's ok. It takes time. Breathe," my mantra. I am personally surprised at the inner sexiness and bodily confidence camming has brought out in me.
