Fall In Love With Your Writing Career Again

One of my new Dream Teamers from this past season paid me a very nice complement the other day. She said, my writing classes have helped her fall madly in love with her writing career.

She even used an exclamation point.

I think the reason I get compliments like this is because helping writers fall madly in love with their writing career is my objective.

It’s also my goal to help writers to fall madly in love with themselves.

Because when you love your work, you can’t help but love yourself a little more.

There seems to be a whole movement out there geared towards teaching writers how to become marketing machines working overtime trying to persuade people to fall in love with them.

That’s backwards. When you love what you do, you are automatically more productive, and your work is automatically more alluring to others.

You should never have to act like a machine. And acting like a machine will only cause you do feel like machine, which doesn’t feel very good.

When you love what you do, you are eager to share your work with others, but not in a pushy, salesy way.

When you love what you do, and you do it consistently, you create more success than the average person.

When you love what you do, you work for love and money. You focus on building a solid foundation for your career and you feel less impatient and greedy than the average aspirant.

When you love what you do, you are perfectly happy with slow and steady wins the race because you are engaged by your work and you feel great about doing it. You don’t mind if it takes a bit longer to get it right because it almost always takes longer than you think it will.

When you love what you do, you know that the cure for the blahs or discouragement or distraction is simply to get a little work done and then everything feels right with the world again.

When you love what you do, you are aiming to build a legacy, not trying to be a one-shot wonder.

When you love what you do, you don’t look towards other people’s value and lust after it. You realize that you already have everything you need within yourself. You recognize that happiness comes from activating your potential and reactivating it on a daily basis.

There are plenty of poor examples out there, my friends. We’ve all seen them with their funnels and their squeeze pages and their long, tedious sales pitches that never cease to invade your inbox.

But just because they exist does not mean that you can’t be a positive, prosperous example of a writer on fire with good intentions and hard work.

Get back to YOUR work. Don’t let other people’s’ agendas throw you off your game. Your writing matters. You matter. We all have so much to offer when we do our own work.

So if you are feeling out of sorts, and like you just don’t have enough success to suit you at this moment just sit down and do a little bit of work that you love. You will become like my dream team participant—overcome with a feeling of personal satisfaction and self-love. And everything will instantly fall back into place in your career.
