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.

We all have dreams, some have big and some have small, but all have dreams. Our destiny is determined by what we do with our dreams, whether we go after it to make it true or we don’t follow it blaming the outer circumstances. We Claim that our situations are different from others. We make a hell lot of excuses why we can’t make an effort to live our dreams. There may be many reasons for not living our dreams, and one of the chief reasons is feeling embarrassed for not achieving what we set out and declare to achieve. What people will say if I fail? In our childhood days, we are trained to feel embarrassed about our failure. We heard sentences umpteen times by the time we are grown, ‘all your friends will laugh if you fail.’ ‘Don’t you feel shame on your failure?’ Over a period of time we start believing that failure is embarrassing. And it is natural to feel embarrassed about failures. It becomes so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we fail to realize that with this thought we…
This is the biggest impediment in self-development and growth. God has made every individual well-packed with unique ingredients that are needed to live a dream life and made an impact on this world.But, why it does not happen in real life, in the practical life, in the day to day life? The root cause lies in our belief system. It is our belief system that is posing the biggest hindrance in accomplishing the goals we set for ourselves and living our dream life.In the name of practicality and pragmatic approach we forgo many wonderful opportunities that life gives us. Okay, now it is a well-known fact how our belief system develops? It is developed by the association we are in and the books we read. Yes, there is a great impact from the books, motivational videos, association.But the greatest of all these factors are; what we say to ourselves day in and day out. What we think about ourselves. What we believe what we are capable of doing?Give time to know and be aware of yourself, take …
In the process of achievement, we tend to overlook some of the basic questions. When we make a list of goals-desires/dreams with deadlines-we must keep in mind the order. What do we want to be? What do we want to do? What do we want to have? In one of my classes a student expressed her desire, ‘I want to be a bestselling writer?’ Now, she wants to achieve a goal that tags her as a bestseller writer. The number one the thing she will have to do is to think and feel that she has all the ingredients in her that are required to be a best seller. The process of achievement starts with the thought process. All the changes happen inside first then only outside change will take place. Number two: learn about the bestseller writer, what is their daily routine, what they do daily? How do they develop the habit of writing? Stick to the routine until you achieve your goal. It sounds simple. Isn’t it? Of course, it is simple. You might ask this question, ‘if it is so simple why do most people fail to achi…
