You want it so bad that it dominates your waking thoughts.
You’re even afraid to say it out loud, in case you sound plain crazy:
“I want to make a living as a writer.”
(You can just imagine the snorts and smirks from family and friends.)
But it’s true — you’re no closer to reaching that goal than the day it first popped into your head.
So, who knows? Maybe the doubters are right. Maybe you are naive to think you could earn a living doing something you love, instead of something you just tolerate.
Except… that you’re not. Because people just like you are already doing it.
The problem isn’t your dream; it’s the way you’re going about achieving it.
