This too shall pass!

Life is riddled with moments that don’t always go according to plan and your journey to being a YouTube success will not always be a smooth one. There will be countless challenges to overcome. Perhaps your camera breaks, you lose some footage, life gets in the way of your upload schedule, or a video just doesn't come out the way you wanted it to. Perhaps your channel isn’t growing as quick as you like, you lose a subscriber or two, or your video gets its first dislike, hate comment or troll. It is going to totally suck and you might feel like quitting.


The best thing you can do is to continue to do what you love most: creating content. Use these opportunities as a way to grow and challenge yourself to become better at your craft. Be more careful next time. Forget the haters and don’t stoop to their level. Critically look at what you could do to make your channel grow faster. Whatever the situation is, it will get better as long as you don’t give up!
