There have been too many days when I didn’t know what to write about. I sat here waiting… waiting… waiting, but nothing came to me.

I used to think that some mornings I just wasn’t meant to write anything. Inspiration did not visit me, and instead I wasted hours drinking cold coffee while staring blankly at my computer screen.

Well, frankly, that sucked. So I started something new.

Now when I am totally stuck, instead of waiting for inspiration to strike, I pick a random quote and start writing about it.

I love quotes. Who doesn’t?

Here’s today’s quote:

Argue for your limitations and sure enough, they’re yours.

~Richard Bach (Tweet This Quote)

You’re better than you think you are. It doesn’t matter where you are in your life right now you were meant for more!

You are more.

The human spirit within you urges you every morning to get up and create something, anything, and you want to.

You need to.

The problem comes when you don’t think you have anything to write, paint or design that matters. That whatever you create won’t be good enough, accepted or appreciated.

When those thoughts start to take root and turn into beliefs nothing anyone says will change your mind. You start feeling lesser than others, incapable of being more, and you start to believe that you will never achieve greatness.

The fact is: that’s not true.

But I am not here to convince you. I am here to help you realize:

Whatever you argue for will be (and is) true for you. (Tweet This)

If you think you’re not good enough, if you think you can’t create something that matters and if you believe in your heart of hearts no one will appreciate your work, well, then, that’s your reality.

So consider this:

If you think you are good enough, that you can create something that matters, and you believe in your heart of hearts that people will appreciate your work, well, then that’s your reality.

You choose.

Every day you must make this choice, so why not make it a good one?

What do you choose to argue for today? Share in the comments.

You are awesome! (By you, I do mean, you!) Believe it. It’s true.

PRACTICE

Pick a random quote and write a blog post about it.

Then come back here and share the link to it in the comments. Or, if you’re not a blogger, write about a quote in the comments. We’d love to read it.
