Writing is Life

Believing in yourself is the key to achieving your greatest accomplishments.

Writing has always been my deepest passion, and I don’t feel right if I’m not scribbling words onto a sheet of paper.

For me, it’s always been the thrill of crafting a new story or sharing a dream with others that has driven me to write.

I didn’t have to be perceived as the best at it or the best at grammar and punctuation to continue this calling. What mattered most was that the voice and visions deep inside me had life.

Giving voice to and applying action to your deepest passion is the greatest tool you have on the journey of self-development. Keep building and keep expanding your story on your path to journey to greatness.

P.S. My web series is finally live and I’ve got a new story on my portfolio site. Keep working on your vision. Keep building day by day.

Getting Started

They won’t believe until you make it happen.

You’ll have to believe in your strategy, your plan, your goal enough to develop and refine it into reality.

If no one else wants to take the journey with you, the best journeys begin with a fearless leap.

Trust your vision. The journey to your greatest accomplishments has already begun.

Finding New Light in Your Work

Sometimes writing in dark corners can influence your work in a negative way. Let some light into your work.

Too often, I see a writer’s desk or canvas space marred with distractions, clutter, and old wrappers from food mistakes.

Clean off that desk, open the blinds, write in the sunlight if you don’t have a window.

The goal is to open the possibilities of your work to new light, new circumstances, new experiences.

And above all else, be brave. Experiment with new ideas, new readings, new characters and thoughts.

There is no limit. You have all that you need.

 

The New Ph.D

The new Ph.D is self-taught, focused on dismantling permission, and laser focused for results.

Learning, rather connected to an institution or refined in a home with a self-taught energized learner, matters when we connect to a community and build something remarkable.

Think beyond one more article in a database, one more degree, one more plaque, or one more seat in a place that’s been claimed and reclaimed over and over.

You have something new, brilliant, and unique yearning for the reality. Learn everything you can about your field. The knowledge is usually a click or free download away.

It matters when you apply the knowledge, when you build something, when you have the courage to bring your thoughts and ideas to life.

Your Ph.D is the result you obtain from the shift, the positive social change, you generate as a result of your research, your passion, your opportunity to make something new.

You are the new Ph.D, bold, knowledgeable, connected, your own boss, filled with wisdom, willing to connect, willing to debate,  conquering greed, willing to sacrifice to build a better more connected world for everyone.

 

 

Imagination

Keep writing to understand your world and to delve into the underlying depths of your imagination.

It’s not enough to stand at the gates of your imagination, then observe the surface, then hit send.

Dig deeper into your personal experience to unlock the gifts of memory and connection you have been granted to share.

Imagine yourself watching your story; consider how others may see your disposition. Lead with positivity, and create beyond the boundaries of your experience.

Learn more and seek deeper vision with every step you take to greatness. The things you haven’t considered are the keys to new possibilities.

Focus on your Greatest Achievement

There is an unmatched abundance of energy in your heart. You can use it to make great things. You can use it change the world. You can use it to change your world.

Learn to hear the world inside you before you set out to help everyone else.

Seek the deepest depths of your intellect, and strive to understand yourself first.

Your goals, your ideas, everything you’re working on will come together once you’ve mastered the world inside you.

Waiting for the Wrong Cues

Too often we wait on the wrong signals for permission to accomplish our goals.

You may have your heart set on helping someone or you may be waiting for the perfect time to start your next big achievement.

A dream does not need permission. Setting a goal and achieving it, will not come with fanfare and applause.

Do the work because you are compelled to change the world. There are better ways to achieve fame and notoriety.

Managing your Imagination

Manage your energy and not your time. Write coherent thoughts. Then envision your conclusions in an all new way by removing all boundaries from your work.

You’re only limited by your imagination. Imagine every possibility and build it with your art and effort to make beauty in all that you do.

You can make universes with your mind, and each choice for your characters and your world makes a new plane of existence.

Love your steps and keep making the world beautiful.

Remove Mental Blocks from Your Work

Along the road of  your Writing is Life Journey, you’ll conquer challenges and experience setbacks along the way.

You may face a challenge you don’t see a way to write yourself out of, or you may face an obstacle that changes your outlook of your work.

We may be quick to throw away the challenge or halt our journey because things are too difficult for us to handle, but the challenge is just what you need to strengthen your focus and dive deeper into your work.

Incorporate those deep feelings negative or positive into the emotions of your characters or your posts, rage, rage, rage, all you want. After it’s all released, start your new page with a clear mind and open conscious.

Often it’s something we’re holding back that’s keeping us from moving forward, and holding it in, is holding onto a roadblock.

Surviving Setbacks in your Writing Routine

When no one is looking and you hit the dip, the slow-place of artistic development, you’ll have to work your hardest and deepen your commitment to excellence to succeed.

If the path to your best was an easy road, everyone would take the leap without question, and without reservation.

When you are confronted with any work slow down or life storm that interferes with your desired outcomes, there are a few methods to embrace as you work to realign your mental focus as you strive for excellence.

Journal to discover the source of the off-balance feeling.

A long stretch and longer walk in a quiet area can recenter the mind.

Confronting a difficult situation, and seeking a solution to any life crisis is also a good choice to change the narrative cycle of emotional difficulty.

Finally, consider your daily routine, if it doesn’t allow time for creativity, you’ll need to alter it to fit your narrative.

Continue to strive for your best, everyday.

You’ve got this. Let’s get those pages done.
