I was being interviewed on Author Spotlight Podcast last night, and one of the questions was, what advice would I give to entrepreneurs or other authors? The question of success is always discussed in the interviews I do, and so when asked to provide advice or tips this is typically my response.
~ Success isn’t a finish line where if you do all the things you will finally be successful. To me, success is your daily commitment to your craft.
Success is your daily wins.
Every day that you wake up and get creative, sit down and write, work on your brand, strategize about your business… that is a success.
If you’re always squinting to see yourself at the finish line, you will fail to see the joy of all your small victories along the way. ~
We put too much of the success into the end game. Or at least I have in the past. We want the result of the hustle so severely that we are blinded to the beauty of the journey. Don’t misunderstand me; I’ve gotten pretty focused on where I want to be, I see it, feel it, dream about it. But… I’ve also gotten focused on my daily activities, and every time I check something off, it’s a win.
At the end of the day, when everything in my calendar is checked off, and I’ve poured into my craft and pushed my dreams forward I can go to bed knowing I am successful.
