Getting fired up for a day or a week is one thing. Maybe you’ve felt this way after attending a motivational speech or reading a great book. Inspiration is a totally different thing.
When you’re inspired, nothing will stop you. You’ll work day and night and do whatever it takes to get what you want.
This is how I felt last December when I decided to start this website. For years I had been studying, learning, and applying different techniques to improve and change my life, and I felt inspired to share them with others. Even though I have always loved writing, I had never written a single thing that was for public consumption, and I had never built a website.
But I did it anyway. And wow, did you reward me.
It’s been 6 months since I launched this site. I’ve published 144 posts with 57,744 words written, over 100,000 emails delivered to subscribers, and as of today, 154,000 page views on andrewschultz.com. And this is just the beginning of much more to come.
The comments, replies, encouragement, and appreciation I’ve felt from so many of my readers keep me excited to continue writing and publishing every day, even when I’ve felt overwhelmingly busy being a husband and father, building a new home, managing my insurance agency, and taking time to breathe.
The same inspiration that drove me to start writing and sharing continues to drive me moving into the second half of 2012. Along with continuing this blog, I will begin speaking to groups of students, entrepreneurs and business leaders in the second half of 2012, and I will continue working on my first book which will be published as an ebook before the end of the year.
Again, I appreciate the support and encouragement from every one of my readers and subscribers. Please continue to read and learn, share with your friends, and most of all, love each other every day in everything that you do.
Have a joyful day!
