“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
“I realized these were all the snapshots which our children would look at someday with wonder, thinking their parents had lived smooth, well-ordered lives and got up in the morning to walk proudly on the sidewalks of life, never dreaming the raggedy madness and riot of our actual lives, our actual night, the hell of it, the senseless emptiness.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road
I imagine I could also title this “More New Beginnings.” I’ve reached that point where I am seriously exhausted with copy and paste though I know I’ll be doing more of it in the short term. I enjoy reading other’s writings. It seems they do it with such ease. Not me. Blogging/writing has been a challenge since day one. Lack of confidence, fear, whatever you want to call it (I don’t have a name for it) has always held me back even when I was writing for b5. (Blecch)
Although she has 5 Tips To Write More, Sell More, This Week I have focused on the one that appears to be MY challenge – “Schedule Time To Think.” Oh, yeah, that isn’t actually where she ends the thought. The actual ending is “So you can double your income in 2014.”
Now she has my attention…
“Forcing yourself to come up with ideas makes you a stronger writer”
Now this is a thought I can wrap my head around!
I see folks in the forums asking the same question over and over… “How do I make money in <fill in the blank> marketing? I’ve tried everything!”
My very first thought today is “Never Give Up!” Patience is truly a virtue!
My next thought is exactly the challenge I face… how much time can I devote to making money in the marketing niche I’ve chosen? And the only… ONLY real factor preventing that devotion is fear! Silly as it may sound…
