At this point in my writing career, my confidence has grown but is still lacking. It’s not like previous careers when I’d proven to myself over and over again that I was more than capable, and most times exceptional. That’s probably because I’ve been so focused on creating that I haven’t really built any network of peers and I have no others to measure my works against.

Today I received another email from Herb. I’ve gotten numerous emails in the past with job postings and writing opportunities. During our weekly call, he’s stated several times how good of a writer I am. He continues to offer a gentle nudge, instilling confidence in me and my abilities to excel in my chosen field.

Sometimes, a gentle nudge is all that’s needed.

Today, Tuesday, December 1, 2020. I am grateful that:

Others believe in me and my abilities. There’s a saying that goes something like this, “When you’re good, you tell everybody. When you’re great, everybody tells you.” I seek greatness.

Rod and I had a conversation and I was provided feedback for the revisions needed. It’s been a stretch to write and format his executive summary and now that it’s nearly finished, I’m happy for the chance to write in a different area and grow in my abilities.

Stewart reached out via email and we’ll have a chance to converse regarding amendments needed to his bio. Hopefully with the completion of those bios, I’ll be able to begin generating referrals.

I’m beginning to get some sort of traction with income generation. I’ve got an income goal for the next three months and I won’t miss my target, I will exceed that number and have enough surplus income to move to Ilo Ilo, find another place to live, and restart the video production company.

When’s the last time you got a gentle nudge?

Be Great. Be Grateful!!!
