My Competitive Edge


I’ve been writing books for a while now and I’m not where I want to be yet. Most people after a year of working toward a goal will give up. It will be because they’re not getting the results they want or expected. People tend to go back to mediocrity and not working toward their goals. What about me? Oh I’m too competitive to just walk away from this writing.

The competitive edge comes from being an athlete, that’s the main reason I haven’t walked away. I’ve been athletic since I was a kid and I wanted to win at EVERYTHING. I mean every single thing. Basketball, football, bike riding, ice skating, rollerblading, racing, video games, I...HAVE...TO...WIN. Which is why after writing 11 books, I’m not done yet. I’m not even bothered or phased that I haven’t been noticed for my writing.

There’s a drive inside of me, I’m fueled by success and knowing that I’m going to do great with this. Also because I have another 25 books planned out so stopping now will do me no good. Yes, your heard right, I have 25 more books planned out to write on societal issues. 

Imagine being so competitive, you’re not competing again anyone specifically, you’re competing with yourself. It’s getting better at my craft, writing small poems about life, situations, experiences, anything. When it comes to books, its tackling societal issues that are going on around us. There are so many things going on around us there’s always a story to tell. 

I always say compete with yourself and no one else. When you compete with yourself, you push yourself to be better at what you’re good at and passionate about. I honestly don’t worry about other authors, writers, podcasters or poets and what they’re doing. It takes away from what I can be doing. 

At the end of the day, everything I do is to impact someone in some way. Every decision that is made is done by me. The podcast episode, the scripts for it, the content I write about (books and short poetry), the book covers, the sizing of the book, the synopsis, the blog content, posts on social media, YouTube content, every single thing falls on me. The greatest part about it....I wouldn’t have it no other way.

My books are here on the website and my podcast is The Aquarianmind Podcast where I discuss societal issues going on in today's world. 

Be good and go accomplish your goals.
