Anytime I’ve got stuck writing it was because I was trying to write for someone else. The solution: write for yourself!
When you cut out the bullshit and literally write like you’re writing an email or a handwritten letter to your mom, dad or aunt, you get unstuck.
The days of writing “corporate” marketing are over and well past us. People want to hear the real you, not some cookie-cutter version of you.
Please don’t hesitate to write as you do in your normal life at home.
I believe 100% that this approach works.
As an example, I wrote this piece around 9:00 AM on Monday, January 20, 2020, because I was in the zone (credit to La Colombe Coffee Roasters and their Fishtown Medium Roast) and flowing with a pen and paper in hand (before translated digitally).
You owe that to yourself.
After all of the years of beating yourself up, you have found that wasn’t doing any good.
You have to let go of the past;
If you want to move forward and have a better future for yourself and your family.
You deserve healing, respect, self-worth and abundance over doubt, fear, anxiety, hate, and depression.
Do not water yourself down.
However, find and seek out those who build you up and are great to be around.
Your mental toughness has to grow daily.
Do not settle for less than what you’re worth.
Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you want.
Do not be careless or unwilling in your pursuit of life’s goals and dreams.
Go after them with ferocity, integrity, passion, desire and a hunger for more.
By loving yourself intensely you’re able to accomplish things you never once seemed possible.
That my friends and family are the sources of something great.
Choose positivity, love, respect, and creativity over everything else.
You will be astonished by what happens next and who you are able to become, attract and pull into your life.
My Very Best,
Donovan E. Vogel
