“If you want a quality, act as if you already had it.” — William James
Ignorance is a powerful catalyst for “unrealistic” dreams and ambitions. If you don’t know how hard something is going to be, you’re less likely to be discouraged. If you don’t know it can’t be done, you just might do it.
This can be a tough one if you’re writing about something you haven’t directly experienced yourself. The stories that tend to do the best on Medium are those which includes stories or lessons learned by the author.
