A thought by Les Parrott, (2012-08-02) from his book, You're Stronger Than You Think: The Power to Do What You Feel You Can't (p. 155). Tyndale House Publishers. Kindle Edition.
I am having a real problem in getting started writing today. We came over to Las Vegas from Pasadena, California to see our daughter and her family and I am a little distracted. Now the battle in me to write or not is based on two things, one I’m tired and two is the boldness I have that someone needs what I am going to write so I have to do it no matter what. As you can tell the second one is the argument that won.
Now the key is first finding the right quote and then writing the first sentence. I did that and now I am writing. I just had to start.
There is something bold that you know you need to do and maybe you are just waiting for that something to inspire you and then you do it. The key is you start doing and then you will be inspired.
Pretty simple huh? But it is not easy. Do you know what keeps me doing this bold thing of believing I have something to say that makes a difference to you? It starts with finding a thought and then writing one sentence. If that doesn’t click I find another thought and then write one sentence. That is how I write five blogs each week. I find a thought then write a sentence and if a second sentence comes to mind I continue till it is done. But it starts with finding a thought that speaks to me.
So what first step do you need to take right now?
