A few years ago when I was in one of my first writing classes, I met with the instructor after the lecture because of concerns I had on whether or not I should continue (I was experiencing a lot of frustration and seeing very little improvement).
My instructor asked me if I liked writing—putting aside for the moment all the challenges I was encountering. I answered that I did. She said something that has stuck with me:
“Someone is depending on you to write your thoughts, insights, passions. Whether it’s fiction or non-fiction, someone is desperate for you to get your words out into the world. Your truth will touch them and will help them. But not if you don’t get it down on paper.”
She quirked an eyebrow and left me to ponder….
Your homework today is to take the next step because someone is depending on you! They are desperate for your talents, gifts, skills—your unique genius. You doing this is the only way others will have any chance at all of receiving your life-changing help. Their life is going to be so much better because of you and because you are achieving your dreams.
So, go for it—take the next step now!
You can do it!! You have what it takes—I know this to be absolutely true about you!
I’m so proud of you!
