Many of the email messages I receive from writers who’ve had success (big and small) describe a leap of faith.
One writer turned down a full-time job. She had faith that her writing on the outsourcing sites would pick up, and that she would surpass her job-offer income. Less than a year later, she’s written to say that she’s already far surpassed the income she was offered.
She doesn’t waste time in travel, so she has more free time. She’s now getting into writing ebooks for others, because there’s huge income potential there.
I smiled when she wrote: “I have big faith in myself now.”
Yes indeed, she does.
Another writer made the switch from writing for content factories to setting up on his own. He set his rates at outlandish, outrageous figures — or so it seemed to him. He was nervous, and almost panicked… But he had faith.
Guess what? People PAID his “outlandish” rates. Not a single solitary quibble. He had a little faith, and now he’s got a much greater sense of his own potential. As he put it, he’s “excited — this is real, it’s not a dream.”
How much faith do you have?
Forge ahead. You only need a tiny amount of faith to surprise yourself with what you can do.
