What if I won’t succeed at writing? It scares me to watch everyone else pursue the orthodox path of finding a job whereas I’m pursuing my dream of writing.
I have financial goals too. I want to buy a beautiful house by the sea and live my days crafting beautiful words that readers enjoy.
I want it so bad. I’m sacrificing many months to give this a fair shot but the fear of failure has finally showed its ugly face.
From right now, I’m making some huge changes in my life starting with the amount of time I spend working each day.
I’ve set a daily quota of 7000 words for 6 days a week and I plan to release many books in the next 6 months. I am going to give my entire life to writing and God willing, I succeed.
To be honest, I don’t have much to say because I’m in a state of panic (lol) but rather than breaking apart, I’m directing all of it towards working harder.
Let’s see if I can truly succeed as an author. Let’s see…
How often do you look back and reflect on all the things you’ve had to give up? From that puppy love to that favorite outfit that was possibly a few good bucks over your budget. I’ve dealt with my fair share of compromise and I’m certain you have too. But, there’s something really important that I needed to say. It’s something that I would love to hear other say to me.
Don’t give up on your dreams.
No matter how hard the road to success is. Regardless of the sacrifices you have to make and the battles you must fight, never give up on your dreams. It’s all that we have to hold onto. Most things change because time itself can never be stopped. It’s inevitable that things around us change, people change and even you and I change.
But lets not allow such change trick us into believing that letting go and abandoning our dreams is okay. It’s not okay. I’ve come to realize that these dreams help define us, right to our very souls.
If we give up on our dreams…wouldn’t it be the same as giving up on ourselves?
