I got it!
The idea struck me as I was sitting at work.
I was reminiscing about my trip to the amusement park, Carowinds with my brother Ju and his family. My nephew, DJ who was ten at the time played me. He wanted to ride the “big rides” instead of going to kiddy land with his mom and sister. But the moment we were about to get on the first ride he punked out and said that he had to use the bathroom.
I thought to myself at my desk. THAT’S IT! We often get excited to chase after our dreams but the fear keeps us from getting on the ride. That would make a DOPE book.
I had the idea, so I sat down to put pen to pad. Then a magnitude of thoughts swirled in my mind…
“Wow, you’re about to write a book…”
“and ENTIRE book! Hundreds of pages….”
“Girl not a blog post but a BOOK…you don’t know what the hell you’re doing. That’s a lot of writing. You have never written that much. Do you even have 20 pages of stuff to talk about?”
My dream has always been to publish a book; now I had the perfect topic to discuss. But, I didn’t believe that I was equipped with what I needed to bring my dream to life. So instead, I stopped working on it and walked away.
You may feel that you will never have the money to start your dream business, that you are not qualified to be a speaker, or that you will never be the head of your department. When you see where you are now, the dream seems so far fetch and it will never come true for you. Now you feel discouraged and you don’t want to give it a try. But today you will stop running from your big dream and give it another shot.
