ANOTHER WRITING ADVENTURE!
Who inspires you to write, to read, to chase your dreams, to learn new things, to motivate you?
For me, it's often...or always stories I hear, or have read by others that have taken that first step and found their courage to do something that in turn then inspires others to do the same. It's not always the same person, but multiple people who have gone on to do amazing things, accomplished or conquered life time goals by just taking action and saying to themselves I can do this and I will do this.
The first person who comes to my mind when I think of inspiration is Cheryl Strayed, Author of 'Wild.' Ever since having read her memoir, whenever I see something published or read one of her recent Facebook posts, it reminds me of where I want to be and what I want to achieve, and how much she has changed my outlook on life and how impact just one story can make to change your out look on life...the key is to never loose focus.
2021 has reminded me not waste any more time procrastinating on what I want to do and what I want to achieve, and where my goals always fall back to what I love to do and that is WRITING!
By luck, or by chance, I fell across a post on Instagram advertising courses, writing courses...of course! As such, I literally bit the bullet and decided to immediately enrol in this course - the Copywriting Essentials Course - through the Australian Writers Centre, and I'm loving learning this new skill that will take me in so many writing directions if I allow it to...and I will.
To be motivated, to make change you must move forward, and learning new skills I have learnt gives you that push to make the necessary changes, to believe in yourself that you can do it, everyone who's been there tells you the same, we just have to take that first or second or third or latest giant leap of faith for ourselves.
So, my personal endeavour is to become a freelance writer, make a living from my writing, something I love doing to earn an income, to be my own boss, choosing my own pathway and becoming successful at the same time.
Sounds like a plan! Wish me Luck!
