Early in his writing career, Adam was turned down constantly when trying to get his work published on sites or in publications. He has learned that perseverance and hard work always pay off. If you’re not willing to put in the work and the time, goals will not come to you. Figure out how much time you have and make sure to allocate it to the right activities.
More than any business venture or publishing of his writings, Adam remembers his English professor telling him he was a great writer. This was the moment Adam started to build his confidence and started to really think about building his dreams. This taught Adam the power of encouragement. Encouragement may be the one thing you can place in someone’s life to help them go further.
