You can have all the tools you need to write, but without determination, you won’t get anywhere.
If you don’t have a burning desire within you to proceed with a project, then you need to ask yourself whether it’s something that you’re truly passionate about. Sometimes, you might just need a break. Or perhaps it simply isn’t the right time to work on that particular project. Whatever the reason, it is difficult to work on something if you do not have the fires of resolve behind you!
Time is precious, so don’t waste it! You may have the best idea in the world, but if you can’t muster any passion for it, then you’re going to struggle when working on it. I’m not saying that you won’t be successful, but the road to success will be more arduous for you. So make sure that you are passionate about what you do.
As a writer, I come up with many concepts for books, but I only proceed with a project if it truly resonates with me. If I get a strong urge to develop something, then I trust my gut instinct and go for it. This saves me from pursuing fruitless projects and just focusing on the ones that I know I’ll follow through with.
Determination and passion carries you through from start to finish. When you are spurred on by the fires of resolve, the journey to success is truly effortless.
