Zig Ziglar says that you can have anything you want if you just help enough other people get what they want.
Bring value to the world, in other words. What if your work seems to be completely useless?
This is where feedback from clients becomes important. What if you don’t have clients yet?
There are any number of places to find people who are asking the questions you answer. Websites like Yahoo Answers and Quora give you tons of questions on a variety of topics to which people are desperate to find answers. You can answer them on those websites as well as have a longer, more in-depth answer on your own website.
Helping even one person is progress. Ask that person for feedback. Build your useful content and audience.
