A cannibalistic sharecropper traversing this world and eating poor helpless ranchers.
“Honey! I’m craving a rancher.” The farmer said.
“Okay dear, I’ll get you a rancher to have with your lunch.” She chirped, in that beautiful voice he loves to hear.
“You are a wonderful wife.” He replied as he kissed her on the cheek. Then continued doing the things that farmers do that make them crave ranchers.
We all know that the act of making lunch is not what makes a wonderful wife. But, the farmer shows his appreciation for even the little acts like packing his lunch. More importantly, she knows that if he packed his own lunch it would consist of one rancher after another. Sure ranchers taste amazing but you can’t live off ranchers alone. Imagine a diet consisting of one rancher after another, it shouldn’t be done. But, having a tasty rancher with lunch can’t be beat.
You’re reclining on your tractor with your feet up on the steering wheel. A cool refreshing breeze blows across your skin and makes its way to the leaves dancing in the trees. This is your calm and relaxing time in the midst of a busy day of doing what you do. Your mouth begins to water. It is as if your taste buds are starting a rebellion in your mouth. The only thing that you can do to tame this watery uprising is eat a rancher. You do, and it is amazing. It is all you hoped for and more.
And We’re Back:
It has been said, a time or two, that you need to cherish precious moments. Imagine having moments like that every day. They wouldn’t be as few and far between as people say. Those precious moments could be anytime you want them. Or, as allowed by those who strictly adhere to healthy lunch packing guidelines. Either way, you have a chance to taste greatness. Why not put all your worries aside, only for a moment, and enjoy the heavenly experience of eating a rancher.
If you’ve made it this far you are in one of two mindsets.
- You are totally and utterly shocked at the idea of a cannibalistic sharecropper traversing this world and eating poor helpless ranchers.
- Your knowledge of the hard candy industry tells you that Ranchers are quite Jolly and extremely tasty.
Either way, wasn’t it wonderful to take a break from the real world and enjoy a short story about a farmer’s eating habits? At most, you have a burning desire to go out and buy some Jolly Ranchers. At the very least men have learned to appreciate even the little things. Women have realized that if it weren’t for them, men might eat candy for every meal. It is a win/win situation.
I am not affiliated with the makers of Jolly Ranchers. I just enjoy the candy and got the idea for this post from looking at a bag of Jolly Ranchers.
Be the Copywriter with humility and the one who celebrates all successes no matter how small.
For the “working” Copywriter content mills may be off putting. For the newcomers like myself they are good and bad. It all depends on how you look at the situation.
A simple Internet search provides you with a list of content mills and reviews. You will find people that think some are good. You will find others that believe that they are an evil business that consumes a writers’ soul.
In the real world, where most of us live, “Copy” is another way of saying text. “Writer” is a word that describes someone who writes. So, that means a Copywriter is a person who writes text. This is not to say that a six-figure earning, persuasive writing machine “only writes text”. It is a simple statement that Copywriter means someone who writes text. This means, if you are writing, you are a Copywriter. Congratulations!
Content mills are often a positive place to start your writing career. You all know that content mills don’t pay much. You would have to work hours on end researching and writing articles. That work means nothing if the writing doesn’t sell. Yet, when your writing sells is when the positive impact comes in to play.
That email saying, “Congratulations you’ve sold your first article” is an amazing confidence booster for a new writer. The second, the third, and the fourth email mean you must be doing something right. In that moment it doesn’t matter to you that you only made $8 for something that took you two hours to write. It only matters that you sold it and that you’ve succeeded. The feeling of success is a very powerful motivator. That feeling will keep you writing, learning, and reaching higher.
The more you write, the more you will improve. As your writing improves, you will get noticed. Then out of the blue you get that email that says, “You are a preferred writer for such and such agency”. There it is again, that feeling of success comes back. In that moment it does not matter if this happens to millions of people a day. All that matters is it has happened to you. A business likes your writing and work ethic so much that they prefer you to do their writing.
Though your goal is to create a good living as a writer; these small successes can be the catalyst you need. Every Copywriter started somewhere. In some cases the ego grows quicker than the success does. This creates a person that believes they are larger than life and too large for you. Don’t be that Copywriter. Be the Copywriter with humility and the one who celebrates all successes no matter how small.
“Small, deliberate actions inspired by your true desires create a life you love”
This world is full of gurus that tell you to find inspiration. They say it is everywhere. All you need to do is find it. In a sense they are right. Inspiration can be found anywhere. Who or what will inspire you?
Truth be told, no one and nothing is inspiration incarnate. Inspiration comes from inside of you. Your favorite celebrity or philanthropist can do something inspiring. For you to feel inspiration you need to nurture that feeling. What you see as inspiring, another person may see as mediocre and mundane. Does that mean that whatever you see as inspirational is not inspirational? Because so and so doesn’t see it as inspirational? No, it doesn’t mean that at all.
You have a garden. It is not like your average fruit and vegetable garden. It is a garden planted with seeds of inspiration. Some of them grow and some of them don’t. Why don’t they all grow? Doesn’t every seed of inspiration grow like Jack’s magic beanstalk? No, like any other seed, they don’t grow because you don’t nurture them. You don’t fertilize them. You don’t pull the weeds from around them. It boils down to the fact that they are not as inspiring as you thought.
And We’re Back:
You now know that inspiration is a seed that you plant. For it to truly inspire you, you have to act on it. Water it, fertilize it, nurture it, and pull the weeds from around it.
Writing can be a good example. You received an email or saw online information about being a writer. Not only do you get to be a writer, you get to make money doing it. This is one of those seeds and you plant it in your garden. You find out that you don’t make much money writing for content mills. You can’t afford the training that helps you reach your goal. Finding ideas to write about is not as easy as you thought. Those are your weeds. Do you pull those weeds and continue on or let them grow and give up? Will you fertilize and water your seeds? Will you let them up and disappear like a burp in the breeze?
Action, (As compared to inspired action), is a zombie like walk through life. Doing what needs to be done to have the material items that you think you need.
Inspired Action is a joyful bounce through the life that you are creating. You are doing what you want and getting what you want. Best of all it does not feel like work.
