An aspiring writer will always be just an aspiring writer.
And act like an aspiring writer. And not like a real writer.
Most of your friends don’t want you to succeed. They don’t want you to be able to break free. They want you to fail.
…a day is enough to start anything.
That blog you’ve been dreaming about.
That book you always wanted to write.
That instrument you wanted to learn.
Whenever you do something, create something and put it out there, many people won’t like it.
People will complain.
I kinda want to be successful.
I kinda want to be with her.
I kinda want to have a career.
I kinda want to enjoy life more.
I kinda want to be a writer.
Blogging is dead. Just like every other form of creative expression is.
You don’t make money with blogging, writing, making music or with any other type of creative expression anymore. Those days are long gone. It doesn’t…
Your twenties are there for getting your heart broken.
For breaking other people’s hearts.
For going out there, experimenting, trying and failing.
To show up every single day.
To do your thing every single day.
To get going when you don’t feel like it.
If you want to become a good writer, don’t try to become a writer.
If you want to become a good public speaker, don’t try to become a public speaker.
Don’t just think, do.
Don’t just follow, lead.
Don’t just talk, listen.
Don’t just complain, act.
