Many of us want to succeed in our passion, but most won't. The reason? They overlook the amount of work, dedication, and love of their craft. To succeed, we need to embrace chaos, stress, and all else that goes along with it. Yet above all, avoid the negative people.
Many of us have a heart to heart with ourselves. We argue with ourselves, balance pros and cons of our next move. Well, I've had an internal argument with myself for too long, and it's led to quite the standstill. This is the ultimate road taken versus road not taken path.
I don't care about your day job. I only care about whether or not you consider yourself a writer before all else, or whatever your passion may be. To become what you want to be, you must refer to yourself as such.
What's your passion, and where did it go?
You're holding yourself back. If you're doing something right now you're not passionate about, stop trying to please others by holding it back. Go after it. Crush it. You'll be glad you did.
