I had trouble writing this article today.
In fact, I had trouble writing much of anything today.
Sometimes, writing eludes this old copywriter because his motivation wanes a bit. When that happens, I just lay down the keyboard and do something else. I search for activities that bring back that copy-loving feeling… or just do things to take my mind off it for a while.
Playing with the grandkids helps… they’re part of my reason for building a strong business. If I want to be a full-time granddad anytime soon, I need to get my rear in gear.
Other times, I’ll take a walk to relax my mind. Or, I’ll go out to the veggie garden and play in the dirt for a while. (It’s coming along nicely, by the way. The tomatoes are starting to overwhelm us!)
Well, today it was a different story altogether. I had trouble writing because I couldn’t see my monitor very well. No, my eyesight isn’t going bad.
And, no… neither are my computer monitors!
The reason I had trouble writing was that something happened on LinkedIn today that touched my heart. That made the tears well up big-time… and that takes some doin’, believe me.
I wanted to share it with you because it made me recognize something. Something you should also be aware of as you build your copywriting business.
Whether you realize it or not, your success and the way you build your business is not just important to you. And, how you conduct yourself, particularly on social media, can affect more than just your own success.
It may affect the success of others as well.
When you finish reading, I sincerely hope you understand how much you impact the lives of others, especially new copywriters trying to get started.
That your success not only affects your hopes and dreams but it also makes a difference to others… even an ocean away.
That everything you do can have the “butterfly effect.”
Let me start by telling you what happened Monday…
