Just Show Up

October 1, 2021

Imagination, Day 32

Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
― Langston Hughes

“It doesn’t matter if anyone reads it, buys it, sponsors it or shares it. It matters that you show up.”–Seth Godin

  1. Have a dream
  2. Show up.

That’s how we can succeed at our endeavors. First, you have to think of something that you want, something that you wish to accomplish, or someone you wish to be. That’s the hard part.

It is always good to work in a little optimism, a little fun, and a lot of determination. It is important to understand that failure is not failure but is, instead, finding out what measures don’t work on the way toward achieving your goals.

And then

Show up.

Give it all you have to give and never quit believing.

If you need to change course, don’t be afraid to change.

But first

You just have to show up.

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site johnschulzauthor.com publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, johntheplantman.com which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at http://johnschulzauthor.com/
