Now or Never

Making the decision to finally take this writing thing seriously took me too long to make. I’ve been thinking about writing this book for 10 years. I never started because of self doubt. I was afraid to do the work. I was afraid to fail. Failure is never starting at all. Deep down inside I think I know that I’ve been destined to write this book my entire life. I’ve heard the stories hundreds of time from my father over the years. He loved telling them, and I loved hearing them. Subconsciously I was stopping myself from moving forward. All it took for me was to do some research on self publishing. Then writing a plan about how I would do it to realize that it wasn’t an impossible or unattainable task. When I broke it down to small reachable goals it became crystal clear. Relaunching my brand was first step in the form of this page. I want to double and triple my readership. I want to inspire others to write. I want make friends with self published authors. I also want to create a safe space for other Latinx and writers of Color to express them selves and find support.

Where there is a will there is a way. I’ve seen the end result. I just have to do the work now and reach my happy ending. Saying and doing are a long way from each other. Most importantly you have to believe that you will succeed. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will. Next step surround yourself with people that believe in you but are also willing to invest in your dream. Everyone says they will until it’s time to actually do it. Find people that are ambitious and go getters to collaborate and compete with. If you’re surrounded with people that have been doing the same thing for the last 10 years and aren’t planning anything to improve their situation, it’s time to cut them loose. The same goes for chronic complainers and victims. You need people that have vision. Risk takers. People that will push you out of your comfort zone, because they know that is where success lies. Nothing is impossible with a solid plan, a strong support system and hard work. Stay tuned for my evolution. This my once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m not going to waste it.
