Are you number 1 or number 2?
When people invent ideas in their mind or have a vision to achieve a common goal and decide to share it with others, either one of two things will happen:
1. The person listening will hear what you have to say. And that’s it.
2. The person listening will hear what you have to say…and do what it takes to help you achieve your goal.
When it comes to inspiration, just listening to an idea that someone presents to you can spark a wave of excitement so deep within, you get motivated to work with that person to achieve that goal. That is such the case with Dawnyele’s Fiction.
I remember talking to a friend about some old poetry I had written years ago and was thinking how cool it would be to get published. They were like “well why don’t you?” I simply said, “I don’t know how.” That friend told me, “hell, I don’t know either. Oh well, you probably wont get it anyways..” I was discouraged by it, but let it go…..that was 7 years ago.
Fast forward to present time. I thought about the Dawnyele’s Fiction site as an outlet to get some good poetry and stories out and to create a buzz..kinda like a mixtape. Its a prelude of things to come soon. I spoke to another friend about it. I told them I was back to typing up some poetry and had a short story in the works and they were like, “That idea sounds really awesome…how can I help?” I was inspired by those 4 words. Not only that, but when talking to more people about it, they were really interested. Just to know that others are willing to not only see the vision, but take part in the vision is motivation enough to keep going and try to make it a successful reality. Thanks to my friends that see my soon-to-be reality.
So back to the question at hand..are you number 1 or number 2?
