As I explained in the previous email sent out, This is a for a test of different titles as well as a comparison between this article the earlier. So tell me, “Of the titles and two articles, Which you like better?”.
I promised that I would write. Every time I did I told myself. “Self, Good Job! You did it!” And I meant it. And it felt good!
That’s Positive Affirmation! It’s as positive as rubbing a puppy’s tummy, for the puppy.
It wasn’t about how well I wrote. Nope, that would have only complicated matters. I was not ready for it. Not even that small added weight. “Baby steps, take baby steps”
I couldn’t’ remember the last time I sat down and actually wrote anything. Literally I couldn’t. It was not part of my daily life, was never required to write. No one knew wrote. And I didn’t know the first thing about writing.
But I learned. It really did feel good, like an accomplishment. I learned that praising, to positively affirm my action, made it easier to do it over again.
Like the puppy being reward for being playful and rolling over, I too wanted my tummy rubbed. It’s Funny how that works, and funnier that it works on me.
“You can laugh all you want. I do too. Positive Affirmation worked, and does still. I don’t see anyone volunteering to rub my tummy, so I’ll do it myself!”
Looking back, and this is only a few months ago, this is one of the first steps that happened towards making writing my habit. Everything else are just tools. Knowing how to structure an article, knowing how to write strong titles, all this and everything else are tools to help get a job done.
The Blog Writing Habit Comes First!
