Today I’m sharing with you three tips for success. Whatever it is that you hope to achieve, just remember it isn’t going to happen overnight. It took me five years to sell my first book. Don’t let where you are at today stop you from following your dreams.
TIPS FOR SUCCESS
1. Never give up. In the age of instant gratification, it’s far too easy to forget that success comes with sweat equity. I hate to think what my life would have been like if I’d decided that writing and selling my books was too difficult. It would have been like taking away a piece of my soul.
2. Believe in yourself. When I first started writing, there was a Norman Vincent Peale quote I’d recite every morning: I believe I am divinely guided. I believe I will always take the right turn in the road. I believe God will make a way where there is no way. I repeated it so often that even now, all these years later, I can quote it without hesitation.
3. Trust your instincts. I believe that once we write down our goals, our subconscious and God work together to bring our dreams into reality. Part of this process is being willing to listen to your gut. Know yourself and listen to the small, still voice of God leading you toward your dreams.
