Enthusiasts are afraid to go pro

Scroll through at least ten Instagram profiles, and you’ll see the word ‘enthusiast’ attached to occupations such as photography and travel. They’re even kite enthusiasts.

Enthusiasts are scared hobbyists. They want to take the leap and become experts, but they’re not courageous enough. Notice how you don’t see mentions of soccer enthusiast or model enthusiast; those jobs are harder to fake and obtain. Enthusiasts are wannabe professionals who are afraid to take the next step toward being a professional.

Some proclaimed ‘enthusiasts’ are pretty good. You can even call them amaffesionals because they make good art. But the real game requires a different mentality and skill set; just because you dominate street ball doesn’t mean you’ll make it in the NBA. If you want to go pro, get serious about it– but start, by first removing the word ‘enthusiast’ from your profile.

Write your way to the life you want.
