Where do you draw your inspiration to do what you do?
Or do you you just wake up, go to work, come home, sleep then rinse and repeat the cycle on the other days of the week that duty calls?
Content Marketers Are Self Motivated
I am a content marketer. Duty does not call. Nobody has ever ever told me to wake up and go write Nobody has ever ever asked me how much did I write today. Nobody has ever ever checked up on me.
Either I tell myself to do it AND follow through or the content never gets written. Simple as that.
Find Motivation to Write
So, where do I get my motivation? By standing on the ‘shoulders of giants.’
I like reading about great men and women and listening in on the things they said that inspired those around them.
Winston Churchill was one such person. I have many others. Well, maybe not many…but others that whisper in my ear to keep me going.
Winston Churchill On Staying The Course
Here are a few things (in no particular order) that Winston Churchill, the author, orator and statesman said that from time to time I will recall and will help keep me going.
1.” The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes.”
This would mean, that I (a fool) can be right sometimes, too. Write on I say.
2. “Personally, I am always ready to learn, although I do not like being taught.”
My commenters are apt to teach me from time to time even though I wasn’t particularly keen on learning at the time.
3. “Eating words has never given me indigestion.”
You gotta have words ‘out there’ in order to be forced to eat them.
4. “Never, never, never, never give up.”
An artist friend of mine calls this ‘paying your dues.’ To make it as a content marketer, one must do as Churchill said.
So, I ask you, “What or who keeps you going when you feel like quitting?”
