What I have learned in the past few months is that determination can overcome any obstacles. As a writer, I doubted my abilities to have anything published. But a little motivation from a public speaking class and a nagging voice inside my mind forced me to push past the self-doubt. I put my work out there, created a blog, and built a small social media platform. It is paying off. The material compensations are small but the emotional rewards are the best. I can truthfully say that I know what pure happiness is. All this happened because I found the determination to move past my greatest obstacle: me.
Anyone who has a goal can achieve it. All it takes is determination to remove any obstacles and the determination to continue through any hardships that life throws at you. Just keep fighting for the one goal that you see waiting for you over the horizon. Mine is to be a novelist. What is yours? Whatever it may be, let us hope that we both can reach for the stars.
