How to survive tough times in the pursuit of your vision

I recently had a special interaction with a very brilliant university  graduate; we touched on a number of pertinent issues, and typical of  me, I was full of probing questions. To my delightful surprise, he had  recently visited this website and had taken notice of the many books I  had written; currently 15 and still counting. Apparently, he had tried  writing a book soon after graduating from the University and had found  the venture so tedious, tasking and demanding that he had virtually  given up on it. And this was the basis for what – perhaps – is the most  difficult question I have had to answer, and I keep getting that same  kind of question every now and then; he asked:

“So, how does one get to sustain himself through a venture that  becomes extremely difficult to keep at, and one feels like giving up?“

It reminded me of a question one role model asked me when I was all  worked out by this tedious Research & Development, and Writing and  all that go with it, and was actually organising a press conference to  announce the insightful findings to the media, and the world. After  narrating the national and continental problem I was attempting to solve  by my effort, she asked me: “Why bother?”

In either cases, the key is simple: “You must first have a very  strong reason for undertaking the venture; a strong reason why! And when  you feel like giving up, remember the reason why you started it in the  first place.” I told this young university graduate, and added: “All  that can be made relatively easier through the application of Zing4Life!  principles, techniques, and strategies;” you may click here to see.

So, what has been that ‘strong reason’ that was potent enough to have  sustained me through the writing of all the 15 books; why was writing  all these books so important? Especially since it was a continuous  effort within the 6 years period, and just four hours of sleep per day  on the average. And it was all such that there was little time for  regular work, and so I had to take commercial loans to support the  Research & Development, Writing, and all that go with it. Why or how  was this project so important?

There is a very critical issue being addressed in my life coaching and writing effort; you may click here to see more.
