The Motivation to Keep Going.

Everyone will struggle in life. It's a fact. It's human nature. And as a writer I think that a struggle that arises, as subtle as it is, is to be persistent about writing. Writing your blog, your book, your articles... whatever it is, a freelance writer has to be their own boss, set their own deadlines and stick to it. When you have a passion for something it is important not to let that fire fade (cheesy line, I know), remind yourself each day how it is meaningful to you. This can be applied to any hobby/career, not just writing.
For instance I really love ballet dancing, but as a student I found the intermediate ballet classes in my area rather expensive! That is not a barrier though, where there's a will there's a way, and there's no stopping you from becoming as skilled and as flexible as you want to be... solely through perseverence, determination and persistence! Only you can decide what you will be and what you can become. With strong self motivation, it'll set the pattern for the rest of your life when there won't be teachers or parents telling you when, how often or how to do things, set your own goals and follow them and surely, there will be no destination you cannot reach ;)
Keep the faith.
