What do you want? Don't say it's not that simple! We all want something. Something we talk about all the time. It's always on our mind, sitting there teasing us every day. What is it that you really want? Stop right where you are. Don't read anymore until you've really thought about what it is you want.
Okay, so you know what it is? Now, why do you want it? I'd bet the reason you want it--whatever "it" is--is for the wrong reasons. Some may want it for the right reasons. Are you one of them? Think about that for a moment. Why do you want what you want? Money, freedom or just to get away from what you are doing now.
Sometimes you have to do what you hate in order to find what you love. Working a job you hate to find the job you love. It's always what you rather be doing than what you are doing now! When you've been in a position, especially work related, that you hate and the whole time you're thinking about paintball or singing or acting or just being home or for my own sake, writing. That's what you should be doing anyway. Find a job in the paintball field, sing at local clubs, act for young film producers filming a independent film. What ever it is you're dreaming about all day, do that however you can.
Put yourself out there. Make things happen. The only way someone will notice you is for you to notice you first. I want to be a writer. The reason I want to write is because I love to write and I believe I can help people with my craziness. Yeah one day I'll be financially free because of it, or at least I hope so. But I am writing now. What are you doing?
Prove it to yourself. Prove that what you want is what you want. Get up, do what you want!
