Desire is KEY. If you don’t have a true desire to create something of value or learn a new skill, chances are you won’t do the work necessary to “make it happen”. You know how it goes, you get excited about an idea and “toy” with it, get bored, then move on to something else. It’s an infatuation as compared to “true love”.
Discipline is crucial and my most difficult challenge because it is required to take something (anything) from a “I wish I could be a _______(writer, musician, performer, gardener, cook etc…)” to
“I AM a writer” or “I AM a singer.” or “I AM a ________.” (insert endeavor of your choice).”
Any skill or art worth having takes time to develop and a consistent effort to achieve. This is something I struggle with in writing this blog. I am committed to posting at least twice a week and to do that I must sit down and DO IT, every week. It’s difficult amidst the constant clamor of daily life.
Often people don’t see themselves in this light because they don’t make money at their craft.
Here’s the flaw: The great ones are those that pursue their craft, their art or their passions whether or not anyone is watching. They feel compelled to write (or paint or garden or whatever…) as part of their “inner being”. It’s something that’s part of them, deeper than a wishful thought.
