It's rare to find an individual without an insecurity. Most common ones for writers vary from fears of rejection and publication equally, to ones of bad reviews and inability to reach goals. Time management, finances, and other obligations always seem to stand in the way.
I've been thinking about my insecurity for this month for over a week and cannot come up with one. I think I've exhausted most of them over the past few months. But today, in turn, I'd like to offer encouragement to those who struggle.
Take it one day at a time.
Continue to perfect your craft.
Learn from others.
Give more than you receive.
Don't give up.
Olympians don't get to where they are if they don't take this to their heart. They are one of the most determined people I had ever seen. I get extremely emotional watching the Olympics because of their dedication and sacrifice to perfect their abilities. As a writer, I look up to them and pray I may achieve a fraction in my writing career what they have in their lifetime.
Do you have a mantra you follow to keep you on the right path? What is your insecurity this month?
