I am struggling to write a book.

I am not very good at putting thoughts to text. Probably, It will be one of those books that takes a lifetime to write. I know there is a story to tell and I could ‘tell it’ pretty good..but actually writing it seems impossible at times.

I am trying to find my angle. What is my point? Why would my story be important to tell? I know two things. It is about a journey and attempting to achieve your dreams. But we are missing an ending.

It seems like I am trying to debunk the myth. You know the myth. Award winning….(insert your choice of celebrity “here”) gets on the stage..thanks God, thanks the audience, thanks the fans…and then says THE words…

You know the words…

‘never give up on your dreams’

‘If you don’t give up…your dreams will come true.’

I have heard it time and time again since I was younger. I believe(d) it to be true, but the world seems to believe otherwise and is destined to prove me (us) wrong. There are forces of nature that don’t want my (our) dreams to come true. Road Blocks. Obstacles. Hurdles. You know what I am talking about. Over coming the ‘blank’ to success.

Yeah..thats it. That will be the crux of the story. If I don’t give up…will my dreams come true?

The way I see it, if I don’t give up, and succeed…my dreams will come true…and who will care about a book at that point anyway. Success stories have been there, done that.

Ahhhhhhh…but if I fail….and fail in Dramatic fashion.

Failure apon failure apon failure…and so on.

Well, there might be a interesting story to tell then.

As I sit here six years after embarking on this journey. Possibly on the eve of the single greatest advancement in that journey thus far…technologically speaking. Thinking to myself…this could be the difference. THIS IS THE GAME CHANGER.

I have thought this before though and turned out to be wrong. But I kept on…Kept on believing, kept on living. Am I proving the myth right or wrong?

‘never give up on your dreams’

Never is a long time. In this stage of the story, it is too early to give up. There has not been near enough failures to prove any myth. The story is only slightly interesting so far.

Therefore, we must continue to write…or live…

…the story continues…
