If you really want to be a writer, or if you already are a writer, but success has been elusive, you do not need to let rejection, fear, lack of confidence, depression, or anxiety stop you from achieving your goals.
Any time you send a query letter to a magazine, make a cold call to a potential client, or attend a networking event, remember that there is at least a 50 percent chance that the editor will buy your article, the potential client will become a client, or you will meet a potential client at the networking event.
‘Begin with the end in mind’ is not just a trite phrase. It’s the key to success. You must see yourself, in your mind, already succeeding.
Unless you enjoy wallowing in the dregs of self pity, there is no need to waste the precious minutes of your life feeling sorry for yourself or worrying about how you are going to reach your writing goals.
Make the initial effort. Believe that you are going to succeed. Trust that you’ve got what it takes——because if you love writing, you probably do.
Then do it.
You will find that once you make the effort, the universe will work in mysterious ways to help you along the path to writing success.
