Do you like your job? Be honest now? Do you want to know how to get the job that you secretly dream about at your lunch break?

In short, do you think your life can be more than a 9 to 5, Monday to Friday job?

How To Be Focused On Your Dreams
It might take time until you figure out what exactly you want to do. For Scott it has always been writing, so he decided that he needed to focus on his dream, and that's exactly what you need to do. Maybe one of the reasons why you haven't done the same is because you are stuck in a mindset that tells you that you don't have time to focus on your passion right now. But, to walk on the path of success, you need to overcome the usual excuses that stop you from being successful and remain focused on the task ahead.
How To Use Writing As A Lever to Escape 9-5?
Once you know what you want to do, you need to hold on to your wish tight and do whatever it takes to make it come true. You probably still have a full-time job at this point, but try to make room for the bigger plan. Write your book ideas on your lunch break, don't go out at night so often, try to cut down on watching Tv. If you have identified what holds you back, now you have to identify a solution as well.
Strategies To Accomplish Your Ultimate Goals
If you have already begun writing a book you should know that that's not the end and that the show must go on. You need to know what you want to achieve in the next 5 to 10 years. A simple way to accomplish this is by mind mapping. Get yourself a whiteboard and make a map of your journey. Break your goals into time frames, but be sure to give yourself enough time so you don't get overwhelmed and frustrated. A small motivation goes a long way, so even a simple daily goal that becomes your habit is just as important as any other future big scale goal.
In the end it's never easy to give up on your carrier and just start a new one. Obstacles will come, but you need to ask yourself Am I ready to do whatever it takes? Am I going to forget the common excuses for not doing something? Give yourself time to prepare in advance, start by learning about writing and online marketing.
