My mom used to always tell me that where there’s a will, there’s a way. I truly believe she was right in drilling that into my mind and heart. If I don’t have a desire to succeed and strive for success, how will I ever cross that mountain?
However, willpower is not the only ingredient needed to trek through that mountain pass. You need climbing gear and food and to basically be prepared for the unexpected. In your writing life, you need the same thing. Have you studied and learned your craft? Are you keeping current on all the best marketing strategies? What about your emotional needs for encouragement ~ have you linked up with other authors who can provide that encouragement to you?
If you are prepared with your power pack and have the will power to succeed, your trek through the mountain won’t be easy, but you will make it to the valley of your dreams. Even if you don't see results right away, keep going; because if you don't, you'll surely never see any results at all.
I really want to encourage other authors to keep going to achieve their dreams, even when the going gets tough. On Wednesdays on my blog, I’d like to share inspiring stories from other authors who have been successful and achieved success making it over the hurdles in their way.
If you are an author who would like to share an encouraging story about your writing career, please contact me. I would love to schedule you for a guest post on my blog. Have a blessed day!
