When you're a writer, sometimes you get a little discouraged. You might have writer's blocks or other tough life life situations staring you in the face and you start asking yourself why bother? In these tough times you have to remember the dream you have. The reason you have behind wanting to be a writer or whatever it is you want to be. So I have a suggestion. Sit down and remember the moment you realized what you wanted to do. Remember the feelings that fuel your passion. Remember your goal. Take all of this and write it down. Make it how ever long it needs to be to fully express yourself. After you got it all written down and spell checked, give it a thesis statement. The thesis statement is a sentence that summarizes the whole thing. The point of it is so you have simple sentence you can recite to yourself in times of doubt. In a sense it will be your rally call or writing motto. Lastly, take the sheet with the motto on top in bold and the rest underneath and place it were you can see it everyday. So everyday you know what needs to be done.
You can do this with other things like weight loss, breaking bad habits, or starting good one. Anything you want to do you need to persist after it with the passion you begin with all the way to the end.
