Since I was a kid, I always imagined myself living in Los Angeles as an actress. My dream home would be a Malibu beachside villa.
I finally had the chance to fly to Hollywood as a college graduation gift. I loved every minute of it, and I never wanted to leave. I cried on the flight back home.
One evening, I flipped to Keeping Up With the Kardashians on E! as I was trying to find something interesting on TV. The show flashed familiar places: Beverly Hills, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and Santa Monica Pier. I was in L.A. all over again.
What am I doing?
While I watched the Kardashians travel around the world and establish new businesses, I soon realized I could be just as productive. Nope, I was too busy consuming their content.
What am I doing? Not learning how to produce and sell products.
Besides, if I want to travel like a Kardashian, I better learn how to expand my income and take action!
The Big Lesson
Life’s better as a producer than a consumer. I have to thank the Kardashians for reminding me I am a creator. I get a dopamine kick whenever I create and publish new writing (like this article).
There’s a sweet bliss being a creator. We are created to create.
It was about time for me to turn off Kardashian TV and get to work. To stay focused, I even took the extra steps to unfollow the sisters on social media.
Sorry, Kim. This girl has to work.
