Good afternoon guys, and welcome to some Wednesday Motivation!
So you want to be a writer? Or some sort of artist? Or you just need motivation to complete your goals? Well you’ve hopped in on the right blog post!
I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was a little girl. Little did I know, I was already one (because I write). The next step is to be a published author. How do you think I go about doing that? Kat, isn’t that a ton of work? Don’t you just spend your days googling how to kill people in creative ways for your books?
That last one may or may not be true, but yes my good sir or madame, it is a shit ton of work. And how do I go about achieving such a feat? By WORKING MY ASS OFF.
So you have a full-time job? Same here. So you’re tired? SAME. So you just can’t find the time to do everything you want to do? Ditto.
But Kat, you’re going to be published soon. How do you work so much, deal with being tired all the time, and still get everything done? Answer: I make the time.
If you want something in life you can’t just sit around and whine about how you want it. If you want to achieve something, that takes WORK, and DEDICATION, and TIME. It takes balls, it takes you being tired, it takes working a shitty job you hate to get there, it takes ignoring things you want to do, for things you NEED to do. Wanting to achieve your goals is a nice dream, but actually achieving them takes a lot more than “wanting” it.
So again, how do I achieve these great feats? How have I written 4 books and still gotten an education, work 40 hours a week, and have time to play with my cats? I work whenever I goddamn can.
What does that mean? I work on what I want on weekends. I work on what I want after my job. I work on my breaks, on my lunch, in the evening. I work instead of hanging out with my friends and boyfriend. I work instead of snuggling my kitties, and DAMN is that ever hard. I mean, have you seen their adorable faces?
So let’s be real here. What do YOU want? What does it take to get there? Got an idea in your mind? Then DO it. NO MORE EXCUSES. If you want something you have to want it enough to need it. You have to want it enough to take it. It’s nice to want something, but if you ever want to reach that goal you need more than to just “want” it. Wanting something is not going to get you anywhere.
So work weekends, work evenings, work on your lunch – work WHENEVER you can. Sure you’ll be tired, sure you’ll miss your friends, but if you want something bad enough, sacrifices MUST be made.
My question to you today is: what do YOU want and how are you going to achieve it? Leave me a comment below letting me know!
Thanks for reading, and remember: Stay classy internet!
