Writing is hard. Everyone knows that. How do you keep going, when you feel lost and discouraged and want to quit? When you feel like quitting, think about why you started. What was that creative spark that got you going in the first place? Visualize that moment now. Write about that instant when the idea for your project first hit you right between your eyes. See if you can feel some of the excitement or enthusiasm again.
Now ask yourself why this idea still interests you, and what it really means to you; why do you care about it?
Appreciate where you are in your journey, even if it’s not where you want to be. Every season serves a purpose.
Great things never came from comfort zones.
You don’t grow when you’re comfortable.
You will not always be motivated; so you must learn to be disciplined. Develop a good morning writing routine and follow it religiously.
Do you waste time in the mornings on reading and answering emails and posting your status and ideas on Social Media. Well, don’t. That’s not going to get your book finished is it?
Get in the habit of asking yourself every few hours: “Does this activity/action support me in attaining my goals?””Does this support the life I’m trying to create?”
Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally, but from what you do consistently.
Be consistent! Write every morning. Religiously.
The chief cause of failure and unhappiness is trading what you want most for what you want right now.
Don’t compare your life to others’. Make no comparison between the sun and the moon. They shine when it’s their time. So do you.
