For months I listened to people like Gary Vaynerchuk on YouTube while on my 25-minute commute to work. I wanted any of the speakers on my YouTube watchlist history to say the right words to make me move on. None of them could say exactly what I needed. Great speakers will never swoop down and say the heroic words that you need. The proper call to action can only inspire you to do something. Inspiration will fade away if you’re not dedicated to what you really want. I was looking for a way out and during that time I lived out my dreams through my writing. I had to save myself. No one else could do it for me.
With much excitement, coupled with sheer astonishment (I surprised myself) I am excited to announce that I am now a full-time writer! For months I wrote about following your dreams, speaking things into existence, loving yourself, finding your niche, and vacationing. I wrote those posts for my readers in order to push myself so that I can finally say that I am free.
Quitting my retail job in order to write was only the beginning.
What’s something you have done to make yourself more happy and proud to be your own hero?
