“A young man once made an appointment to interview a well known author. As he began the conversation, the author interrupted and asked, “Why did you want to see me?” The young man paused, and then replied, “Well, I am a writer, too. I was hoping you could share your keys for success.”

“What have you written?” the author quizzed. “Nothing,” his visitor replied. “At least nothing that is complete.” The writer stood up before asking another question. “Well if you haven’t written anything, what are you writing?”

His guest responded, “Well, I am currently in school and I am hoping to find the time to pen a few thoughts.” As the author walked toward the door, he fired one final question before cutting the interview short. “So why do you call yourself a writer?”

Do you have a dream, a vision, a plan? Get to work, take the steps to make your dream a reality. Until you begin you are just a mere dreamer. Remember nothing works until you work it. Your dreams won’t build themselves, neither can you become anything by wishing.

Folks, writers write; Singers sing; Teachers teach; Preachers preach; Coaches coach; Painters paint, Workers work. You see what you do determines what you become. It doesn’t matter how terrible you may be now, just keep doing it. All masters were once apprentices, and perfection is achieved through repetition.

Learn To Wait

We live in a world that every day is lived in a rush, and everybody is in a hurry. In a hurry to be rich; in a hurry to get married; in a hurry “to be there” now. While we have to manage our time, it is important that we apply gentleness and patience with ourselves as we pursue our dreams, and not be too much in a hurry. Some of us want the results before we do the work. Due to this rush, some of us cannot enjoy our lives; we run through pleasures without enjoying them, in our hurry to get through everything too soon.

Folks all great people know how to wait. They understand that great results in life cannot be achieved at once. The secret of great success is to learn how to wait. An Eastern proverbs says; “Time and patience, change the mulberry leaf to satin.”

Patience is a virtue we must all have. Maybe you have done everything right, spoken to all the contacts you know, well all you have to do next is just wait…it may seem long but at the right time your break will come. You find in the Bible that, all the men and women who had great miracles had to wait…even when all hoped seemed lost. In the end their patience was rewarded. Every farmer knows too well that there is a planting time, a waiting time, and the time for harvest.
