Staying Motivated by Jaime Buckley
Here we are, entering 2019! 
I’m feeling pretty good, how about you? 
Have you started working on those writing or reading challenges you set for yourself this year? 
Finding the days events fluctuating...wearing you down? 
As a writer, illustrator and dad of 12 (soon to be 13) I always think it’s a good time to cover staying motivated.
No, I’m not saying you’re having problems and yes, I know that this is a book blog tour, but everyone needs a little motivation from time to time, so HERE I AM BABY. 
Circumstances can change in an instant. So why not look ahead and prepare for the pot holes and avoid them altogether? 

Create Checkpoints 
One of the best ways to stay motivated while writing Chronicles of a Hero is a checkpoint strategy. This is where you take that huge goal and chop it up into tiny bit-sized pieces so it’s more manageable. 
Look at it like a marathon race. 
No one dashes out and runs as fast as they can all the time. They pace themselves and focus on the checkpoints—so they can leave their minds in the zone and focus on progress. 
Focus on what IS being accomplished, not what is lacking. That’s a vacuum you should avoid. 

Learn and Adhere to your RULES 
I’m a writer. Love saying that—because it took me these 14+ years to finally accept it. I’m a writer! 
Written 30 books so far and three of them were novels over 500 pages each. Yes, I am most certainly a writer. That being said, there are simple, yet specific rules to follow if you’re a writer. 
The number one rule isn’t voice or prose or spelling. 
It’s writing. 
You heard me. The #1 Rule to writing is WRITING. 
Sit your butt down in that chair and pound out that book, article or game outline. 
Whatever you write, get to it. 
Correct it and refine it after you have it in your hand. Nothing will come of your efforts until you make that effort. 
What are the rules you’ve set for yourself so that you can met that goal you’re trying to achieve? 

What others think DOES matter 
This is a double-edged sword. 
While we don’t want to let what is said about us pull us down or influence our work for the worse—we should also take the time to allow compliments feed our soul. 
We all can use a pick-me-up from time to time. There are also people who love us and want to see us let them. 
If you’re a writer, there are few things more powerful than a fan contacting you to tell you how much they loved your work. 
I cannot express the energy and drive I feel after such a conversation. 
It’s all a balance—and a key to staying motivated is holding onto the positive and letting go of (or ignoring) the negative. 

Remember what you WANT to be 
Keep a clear view on the target here. Not just on what you’re trying to achieve, but who you’re trying to become. That way, each and every step you take will make subtle shifts in your life and help you further down the path. 
My own habit is to create goals that are just beyond the furthest distance I have reached before. Just enough to make me stretch. 
Knowing I want to be a best-selling author alters the choices I make.
Knowing I want to build to one million readers also alters the choices I make.
Not only do I have to write—I must write well, consistently, create draw and build relationships with readers, critics and associates. 
It requires a business sense I don’t yet have, so I study, learn and practice—which in turn affects every other aspect of my life as a professional. 
Here’s what so many new authors don’t seem to realize or accept: 
You are GOING to screw up. You really are, but it’s okay, because it’s called success in motion!

Be careful what you say 
Words have power. 
I know—it’s my profession AND I’m a father of 12 (+1)—but that’s not what I mean in this case. 
I specifically mean be careful what you say out loud, to yourself. 
Words have the power to discourage, corrupt and derail you from your path. 
Cease from using the word “if,” when describing your goals. Use “when” instead. 
Don’t say “need,” rather than “want,” which is more proactive. 
Every word you use isn’t just affecting those you speak to—but your own spirit and subconsciousness as well. 

Remind yourself of where you’ve been 
Sometimes what it takes to keep going is looking back. 
Being an Indie Author has so many challenges to face and overcome. So many things to learn, do and endure—but in the end it’s always been worth it. It’s always proven to make me a stronger person and has granted me the blessed opportunities to be of help to others. 
I take time weekly to sit quietly and ponder what I’ve already experienced. 
Who I have met along the way and been able to help—or been helped by. I pray God to bless them for their willingness to help a soul like me along my course, especially when it felt near impossible to take another step. 
At the same time, I take the time to list what has been accomplished. 
The steps I’ve taken that were said to be impossible. 
They weren’t. 
They were simply steps others were unwilling to take themselves. 
That makes this journey that much more to me. 

Your friend,

Jaime Buckley
