…go all the way.
I’m convinced that no matter how much we love something and we feel fulfilled, sometimes you just need a change. Not because we don’t like it anymore, but because we need to make sure we stay on our toes. We need to channel our ability to stay resourceful and challenge our creativity. Most importantly, we need to eliminate the possibilities of settling so that we give ourselves the opportunity to be better than we were yesterday.
Despite my best efforts to always chase my dreams, and take risks I must admit I have been settling. Not with my job or my personal needs, but with my business. Yes, I’ve taken the leap to become a full-time freelance writer but I was still playing it safe. From my business name, “Writing by Terri”, to the small businesses and local magazines I would chase for a shot at the dream, I wasn’t going all the way. That’s why I decided to change my business name from Writing by Terri to Terrific Words (something I’ve always wanted to do.) I know what you’re thinking. “But Terri, this blog has been named Terrific Words forever!” The truth is, I’ve been scared. I’ve been meaning to change everything to “Terrific Words” but I got nervous half way.
It wasn’t until I was reminded of my favorite phrase, “Don’t do anything half way unless you are willing to be half happy,” that it was time for a change. I needed to take that plunge. Otherwise, I wasn’t doing any favors to myself other than merely selling myself short.
So on that note, I present you with my new business site, www.TerrificWords.com and my new “self.”
It was hard to take the leap, but so worth it. Sometimes the worst thing you could ever do is stop yourself from going all the way. Don’t waste another moment of time. The time is now.
TERRIfic Quip: I know I already mentioned it in the post, but I think it’s so good that it’s worth repeating. Don’t do anything half way unless you’re willing to be half happy.
