Today, we’ll talk about the lessons I learned after completing my first year of pursuing my passion full-time. These are lessons that really helped me push through with my ideas, and helped sustain my excitement and momentum for the entire year. If following through is your problem, get ready to take down notes.

This episode is specially dedicated to creative individuals who may have tried starting passion projects before, whether it’s by yourself or with friends, but you struggled with following through and staying committed to it.

I’ve gone through that myself — I would be struck by an idea, be really excited about it, start planning, start doing the initial steps, but after while — it just fizzles out.

Let the naysayers fuel your persistence, not your fears. #thepurposefulcreative Click To Tweet
