Runners run.

Writers write.

Creators create.

That’s it. Can’t be simpler than that. And we make it so much more difficult than it has to be…

Creating is a choice that creators make to express themselves. Publishing their work is a choice to show others what they are creating, making them vulnerable to positive and negative feedback. And they have no idea what will resonate before they create it, what will flop, and what will be an astonishing piece of creation.

No matter what the feedback is, creators continue to create.

So I encourage you today, to keep creating. No matter the feedback, keep creating. No matter the struggle, keep creating. No matter what others say, keep creating.

No, I cannot be creating the best work when I am just waking up.

As much as I like to be superhuman, I am not a superhuman. I only do this because my ego thinks that I can do everything and anything I want.

I get to know that there are important processes here to create the best work in my life, and I get to realize that the best work comes from the moment after all of your bad work is done.

I don’t need to publish any of my morning pages, morning journals, or anything that I write to get rid of all of my bad writing in the morning. I just need to be at my best when I need to put out the work that matters.

The 5 things that I continue to remind myself:

  1. Consistency
  2. Hard work
  3. Dedication
  4. Enthusiasm
  5. Gratitude

Consistency is what makes everything work. Without consistent long-term work, it’s just another spontaneous thing that you started.

Now consistency is good, consistency with the addition of hard work is what makes someone good at something they do.

Dedication to the craft helps the person grow passionate about the things that they are doing.

Enthusiasm attracts others to be enrolled into the person with the craft.

And gratitude is what gives life to everything else. Being grateful the entire journey of consistent hard work, being grateful of every little down fall help you stay dedicated, being grateful of people who loves you and support you will continue to bring those people back.

You can have it all, He said. This is true, because we can have it all, in the name of Jesus, in the spirit of God.

We can have it all when we give it all, let the belief take control, let the faith take the seat.

We can have it all.

So many things in success is in all of us.

We just don’t usually last long enough for us to see the results come in.

If you are consistent for 10 years, there’s no way that you are not in shape.

If you are working on your business craft for 10 years, there’s no way that you are going to have a bad business.

Put in the work, out last everyone else, and consistent effort.

That’s what wins the game.
