How to Keep Writing When the Going Gets Tough

Adversity and challenges are a part of life, and, unfortunately, it can impede our writing progress.

You may have family issues that might be stressing you out.

Your kids might not be doing well in school.

You may be in the process of moving.

Or you may have financial issues that are keeping you up all night.

I’m sure everyone reading this has been through one or more of these issues and knows how much it can drain your soul.

But if you dream of being a writer/author, you can’t let these challenges stop you.

You must fight through the pain. You must push through the obstacles. You must swim past adversity if you want to reach your goal.

I won’t bore you with some “woo-woo” forced positivity nonsense. I am going to give you one simple tip that works for ME. And if you apply it, it may work for you also.

One of the main ways to get through tough times so you can keep writing is to keep a positive mindset. The best way to do that is to consume personal development books or listen to motivational audio on YouTube or Podcasts.

My favorite personal development author of all time is Tony Robbins. He has an exceptional book called ‘Awaken the Giant Within’ that I think you should check out.

Regarding personal development audio, search for anything ‘Les Brown’ related. Les has a way to light a fire under your rear end and get you moving toward your goal.

I would try to read thirty minutes of a personal development book every morning. And when you are in your car, turn on the motivational audio.

When you consume this content everyday, for 365 days a year, you will notice a change within in you, and it will help you get back to your writing because you want to achieve your goal.

So try it and let me know how it works out for you.

Talk soon & Take care.
