They say you need talent, creativity and imagination to be a writer.
I say, ‘I don’t have any of these qualities. So, shall I stop dreaming of becoming a writer?’
Then, I also read that hard work can beat talent.
Yes, I am not talented. Creativity and imagination I have or not, I am not sure.
However, I know one thing, that I can write every day, each day 500 words.
It is not me but most of the writers who believe that to be a writer you need to write consistently.
I might not have the creativity and imagination to keep on moving.
But I do have my experiences with me. And I also know if I write my experiences, my writing material will never dry.
As each day, I will be adding some more to my experiences. Won’t I?
Imagination is ignited by the experiences. So, I will be imaginative.
Imagination broods creativity. So, I will be creative.
I don’t need a list of things what to write and how to write.
I just need s strong why. Why do I want to write?
I know my WHY well.
Now, it is my major goal, other goals will wait.
I patted on my back, as I can go no longer sans writing.
I am a writer; I keep on writing every day, each day. That’s it.
What others believe, I don’t know and I don’t care.
But I am moving ahead with my own pace.
I am moving with 500 words every day, each day.

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’ I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…
A person once asked me, ‘why it is so that even after having clarity in my dream and after much effort I am not realizing my dream?’ What I explained to him, am sharing with you. Having clarity in the dream is the beginning of the achievement process. But you need to give your 100% to make your dream true. I, myself, have made an effort for many years for my dreams but in vain. However, the result started pouring in once I gave my 100% to the cause. Remember, when it comes to realizing your dreams it requires wholehearted effort. There should not be any ambiguity in it. There should not be any doubt. Your belief level should be 100% that you will get the result you are striving for. And your belief level will be intact if it is backed by wholehearted effort. I always say that success is realizing your dreams is based on a simple act. What makes success difficult? You will agree with me or when you will work on your dream you will realize that simple is not easy. Doing the simple and imp…

Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind.

The speaker said t…
