One year ago, I published my first ever blog post. As I wrote then, this blog is a deep passion of mine.
Today, I’ve published over 15 000 words, or about half a non-fiction book.
I’ll be honest. It’s been hard.
Hard to start writing when there is so much else that could be done. Hard to persist with writing when I debate what to write about. And hard to come back to writing when I feel what I’ve written could have been done better.
What’s kept me going is an intense energy and feeling inside of me. An energy that comes from doing what I’m passionate about, and a feeling that it would be even harder to give up doing what I love.
It’s important to understand willpower isn’t something that is ever out of your reach.
Instead, it’s something that grows inside of you when you find the courage, and make the commitment, to do what truly excites you.
