Go Full Steam or not at all

Are you itching to become a successful freelance writer? Is this a goal that you really want to achieve? Time after time, I hear from people who want to become a freelance writer and tell me that they are ready to work hard to reach this goal; and that is just what I like to hear. Unfortunately, many of these aspiring freelance writers never reach their goal for one main reason: they are not willing to “go full steam ahead.” In other words, they want to become a writer but would rather have everything given to them. This sounds nice, but it is far from reality.

The main ingredient to becoming a successful freelance writer is hard work. It does not matter if you have great writing skills and can sell your services to anybody. If you are not willing to work hard, you will find your career standing still, month in and month out.

What does it mean to work hard? The answer to this question is different to everybody. A full-time freelance writer may tell you that hard work is being at the computer for at least eight hours per day. Of course, a part-timer may define this as getting up a few hours early to get a head start on building their writing career before heading to the day job.

In my opinion, if you are not willing to move forward with gusto you should not move forward at all. If you are not totally committed to your success, how can you expect anybody else to get on board with what you are trying to accomplish? This includes everybody from your friends and family to potential clients. Your enthusiasm shows through, and if you are not moving forward with a full head of steam you will have a difficult time convincing others that you are serious about your career choice.

Why not put yourself in the best position to achieve long term success? With hard work, I guarantee that you will reach your freelance writing goals sooner or later. It may take a year or more, but if you push forward everyday there is nothing that can stop you.
