It is time to quit running scared. It is time to quit playing it safe. I need to quit making excuses and finally admit that I am a writer.First I need to issue a permanent retraction. Back in March I wrote a blog, “I really am not a writer.” Consider this an official retraction of that statement. All of what I have written of why I write holds true, but as of today I am a writer.
If I am honest, I will admit that I claimed I was not a writer out of fear and a desire to play it safe. That ends today.
From now own I will act and speak as the writer that I am. I will embrace the unknown and quit playing it safe. For you see, I am a writer and I have something to say.
I have been encouraged by the book, You are a Writer by Jeff Goins. (A great book even if you are not a writer). Jeff has pushed me over the edge to make this declaration.
I am still a follower of Jesus, a husband, a father, a pastor and now I add a writer to that list.
I encourage you to challenge me and hold me true to my words. Feel free to ask me often: “Hey Jon are you a a writer?”
I AM A WRITER!!
Let me hear from you.
- How about you, are you a writer?
- If you are not a writer who are you? Do you live your life true to who you are?
- What is holding you back?
- How have you been playing it safe? How will you embrace the unknown and take risk that lead to your success?
