In September 2018, I asked my dad for his credit card, to pay for an Apple Music subscription.
The cost was $1 (~INR 60) per month.
My dad said,
“Okay, I will pay for 2 months.
From the 3rd month onwards, your writing should pay for it.”
I replied, “3 months. Then I’ll pay.”
At that time,
Earning even $1 per month seemed absolutely impossible.
It felt like such a far-fetched dream,
That I asked for 3 months to actually start earning even $1 per month from my writing.
But that conversation gave me something to work towards: an emotional goal.
And in that month itself, I earned $150 from my writing. For the first time ever!
Sometimes, even the ‘smallest’ of your goals will seem impossible.
But, if you just start working towards them,
Achieving the ‘small’ goal will become easier with time.
P.S. Tip toe if you must, but take a step.
