“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!”
― Audrey Hepburn
We just have to believe in ourselves and keep a positive mental attitude about life and the goals we have set for ourselves.
Believe me; I know how life tends to get in the way sometimes when it comes to working toward your goals and achieving your dreams. That kind of thing happens in my life all the time, little unexpected things to keep you on your toes, or big unexpected things to cause you frustration. Just because that happened, there is no reason to be discouraged.
If you really want to write that novel but just don’t have the time or the experience, don’t let that stop you. You will always find the time somewhere in your schedule to write a few words a day, even if you think there is simply no time and you’re overwhelmed with daily life and other activities. Something else may have to go if you want this bad enough, such as watching TV or networking too much on Facebook, or sleeping. You may have to get up earlier, or go to bed later, to squeeze in that hour of writing time each day.
Don’t worry about having experience either, because that is no excuse not to follow your dreams. Experience will come if you write, write, and write. You will keep moving forward through experience. There are also plenty of helpful people around. These individuals can give you pointers, or give you that pep talk that you may need.
You will never know unless you start and try. Every one of us started out with no experience at anything and we learned along the way. This goes for anything in life, not just writing. If it takes affirmations or positive phrases to get you motivated, there is nothing wrong with that. Post them where you will see them everyday to encourage you on your journey.
Now, if you’re not on your way already and where you want to be, go out and make it your New Year’s resolution to get started on your dreams. It’s never too late to take that first step.
