The long road « Cristian Mihai

The long road « Cristian Mihai

Here’s a rather inspirational post from a blog that I follow from a fellow writer named Cristian Mihai.  This piece, the “Long Road,” speaks deeply to to me about cultivating strength and perseverance when following your dreams.  In it, Mihai suggests (and this has often been true in my life as well) that the reason why most people fail to actualize their dreams isn’t lack of vision, it’s lack of sufficient will power to succeed.  This post gives me renewed hope that being recognized for my writing or my craft is possible if only I have the strength to stay the course.  Perseverance and discipline are muscles, like the biceps or triceps of the spirit, so they can be strengthened with effort. This is a much more hopeful position for me to adopt than to continue feeling trapped by past lack of discipline or focus.  This might have been me but I can change if I will it.  Sort of reminiscent of Bruce Lipton’s The Biology of Belief,  which energized my younger, just-post-college adulthood with possibilities.  Anyway, read the post for more on this this.
