Lately, things have been difficult in regards to this business. I won’t say I was depressed over it, just……
We live in a world of what appears to be fast results and fast outcomes. Where if your overweight, it should come off in six weeks. And if your poor your pockets should grow as quickly as snapping your fingers.
But life doesn’t work like that now does it. I wished it did, honestly I do. But hard work is the only thing that will get you to where you need to be. But more than hard work, you need something else to get you across that finish line.
You need to endure.
You need to grit your teeth and weather the storm. It may haul you to and forth. It may bring everything you love crashing down around your ears.. But if you don’t endure until the black clouds pass and you can feel the kiss of the sun on your cheek, then all your hard work will be for nothing.
I was a late bloomer to this game. I didn’t know what I wanted until I hit 25-26.
Before that I was aimless.
Before that I wanted to do a host of things that really didn’t match with my capabilities.
Maybe I should have pursued them further. Maybe I should have stayed on course, till that boat bought me to a different shore.
But none of that really matters now.
The past is the past.
The future is still unwritten.
Only the present counts. Only the present matters.
Now I have embarked upon this goal of being a best selling author. Of being a household name. Of making a full time living from this. I don’t want to stop till I reach that destination.
I believe that I can do it.
I know I can do it!
I just have to be patient.
What really matters now is how much I can endure.
The more I chase my goals and dreams, the more I am starting to see how much of a necessary that this quality is.
I can’t let my foot off the gas. I can’t drive leisurely to my destination. I need to use every ounce of drive, passion, motivation, desire and I have to get me there.
Then and only then will I get where I need to be.
But even then, that may not be enough.
I know one thing though, if it kills me I will become a full time author by Dec 31st 2017.
Just you watch me!
