|Believe You Can and You Will|
Maybe your dream isn't about writing. Maybe it's something else completely.
Whatever your dream, I believe--I know--that part of the beauty of the human experience is that we dream the impossible, and if we dream hard enough, we can make the impossible happen.
Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) for COMPULSION come out on Thursday. So that's my dream come true! It still feels incredible and amazing and so very wonderful.
I would love it if you would let me be a small part of having you achieve the impossible by affirming your dream aloud. Yes, I think that's important. Affirmations. Repeating a thing until it becomes true for ourselves is part of the magic of creation, and finding the courage to live and take chances is one of the themes in the book.
Fear, lack of faith, lack of belief can lead us to sub-consciously sabotage ourselves. It's only when we force ourselves to push through, when we commit completely, that we can finally succeed.
Believing Is the First Step to Achieving
- Post about your dream on your own blog, Tumblr, Facebook page, Instagram--anywhere online--before 3/31/14.
