Rochard’s Thoughts: Focus
It’s 1:06 am on July 23 and I’m here trying to figure out my next plan of action. For reasons I’ll explain in a later blog post, I’ve forced myself into a position where I HAVE to achieve my goal of making my universe, The Destiny Saga, a success. A person could argue that I have already achieved success artistically because I do have one book completed, which is more than some people can say. A lot of people never even start to pursue their dreams on any level because of reality.
Reality is a hard thing to conquer because of the mistakes most of us have made in our lives. I know I’ve made plenty of detours from the path of my true potential and it was nobody’s fault but my own. I’m a wiser man now but some of those mistakes are still with me and I don’t know exactly where my thoughts and feelings are taking me right now as I type this blog post.
When you make mistakes in life, you start to question yourself, your family, your culture, and even your faith in things. I get scared that, because I know what I’m capable of, that I’m not going to achieve the reality that I know I can make happen. So my mind starts to wander to everything else except my destiny. My biggest flaw is a lack of focus and, in my Destiny Saga stories, that is something that I want to explore, that lack of focus that a lot of us have.
The scary thing about life is that there’s no guarantee that if I work hard enough I’ll achieve my goal of being a successful writer. But I’ll have a way better chance of it by staying focused. That’s something I hope that works out in your favor. With all the struggles that we all go through in our individual paths, we all deserve a little victory that we can really focus on.
