    This is exactly the reinforcement I needed today, as I’m finally ready to learn all I can about marketing and promotion. So many people are discouraged and are not afraid to share that with the world on social media. I get a cold chill up my spine when I see people voice (or type) what a failure they are. There is power in our words and thoughts. By voicing the negative, it’s as if we are claiming this result for ourselves. I find it’s better to refuse to accept defeat, moving forward with dogged determination. The trying might kill us, but at least we can go down knowing we’ve given it our best shot. There is nothing wrong with taking a break, if it gets too hard. But we must always come back, if it is really what we want to do. I have a long way to go toward my own journey to complete success in this business, but I’ve come a long way too. I appreciate your post on attitude, reminding us to stay the course, no matter the set-backs, and to focus on our accomplishments rather than our failures. Thank you so much for such a positive message.

    Loved this post as it was a reminder of how beliefs or even thoughts, can affect an outcome. When I was a child, I thought being a writer was as easy as announcing that fact – pulling out my shiny new diary and writing. I had faith and, to be fair, didn’t realize the journey I was committing to. That aside, when was the last time I applied a completely positive attitude to promotion? The odds seem to always factor into the equation. Thanks for the reminder – today I’m embracing my inner kid who believed anything was possible.
