Don’t aspire. Just be it.
by Yann Girard
An aspiring writer will always be just an aspiring writer.
And act like an aspiring writer. And not like a real writer.
An aspiring entrepreneur will always be just an aspiring entrepreneur.
And act like an aspiring entrepreneur. And not like a real entrepreneur.
The same holds true for any aspiring anything.
Either you are or you aren’t. There’s no aspiring.
And when you are, then you’ll also act like it.
Like a writer. Like an entrepreneur. Like a blogger. Or like an artist.
And then you’ll treat your work like it should be treated.
Like the work of a real professional.
And not like the work from someone who might maybe some time in the future become something.
Here’s the truth..
No one is going to read a piece from an aspiring writer.
Or buy a book from an aspiring writer.
Or buy art from an aspiring artist.
No one is going to fund an aspiring entrepreneur.
No one is going to listen to an aspiring singer.
People want the real deal.
And the real deal starts in your head.
So you either take that decision right now, act like it and go all in on that or you’ll be stuck at being an aspiring whatever for the rest of your life.
Look. It all starts with you.
If you don’t believe in yourself, in your capabilities and that you are the real deal (even if you aren’t yet) then no one else ever will..
