Success is really more of a decision than most people fully realize. If your writing career doesn't seem to be going anywhere, then you probably just aren't ready for that to happen yet--even though you THINK you are.

Get Ready for Success

I've seen it time and time again as a coach. Writers who are ready to move ahead with their writing careers make it happen.

But writers who only THINK they're ready, spend time making excuses as to why success isn't happening for them. They waste time justifying their actions and continue taking these same actions, even though they aren't producing results.

But success is really more of a decision than most people fully realize.

If your writing career doesn't seem to be going anywhere, then you probably just aren't ready for that to happen yet--even though you THINK you are.

You're still getting some sort of payoff from NOT succeeding.

So how will you KNOW when you're truly ready for success?

Well, when you're truly ready, you'll no longer spend ANY time justifying actions that don't product results. When you're truly ready for success, you'll no longer make excuses as to why you can't change certain behaviors.

You have tremendous power over your life and your career.

When you're truly ready for success, you'll take control of that power and USE it to create the freelance writer's life of your dreams.

Today, take some time to ask yourself, "Am I really READY for success? Or is there some reason I keep holding myself back?"

Try it!
