Writer's Block and You

Happy Monday!



Sometimes that’s all that comes to mind when I sit down to write this each week. I often start writing 1-3 pieces before deciding what makes it to my editor Sue.

It’s crazy to think there’s been over 300 of these Monday m.e.l.t. emails, most of which are just me sharing a lesson I’ve learned or something insightful that has been on my mind which I think can add value to your life.

Then there’s days like today, where I can’t seem to piece the words together to convey the message I’m looking to share.

Ask any great writer and they’ll tell you the key to ending writer’s block is to WRITE. The famous copy writer John Carlton says to even just type random letters.  Eventually something will start to make sense—but that can’t happen until you put your fingers to the keyboard and make them move.

Where’s the writer’s block in your life?

What’s one thing you “want to do” that you can’t seem to get anywhere with?

If its something you haven’t started yet, know that the first step might seem pointless or ineffective. It might not make sense (such as typing blablabla) but it’s that first step towards where you want to go.

Steve Jobs said, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”

Paul Reddick said, “Any action reveals the right action.” In other words, do something and you’ll get answers.

Which permission slip are you waiting to magically appear? And what genie is going to sign it?

And by the way, THERE IS NO GENIE.

There is, however, more than PLENTY already inside you right now to take any action you need to move closer to where you want to be. Trust me when I say that plateaus are nothing more than a state of mind. You just have to choose to step into the unknown.

The unknown sounds scary because we like answers but it’s actually far safer than the alternative because you’re in control – you are moving the pen and dictating your future rather than just letting life happen without your input.

It’s time to end your writer’s block.

Plan that trip and go on it.

Grab that heavier weight and lift it.

Start your weight loss journey and commit to the training and diet.
