Food For Thought (a.k.a. A Writely Kick in The Rear)


As a Fortune 500 sales manager that went to President’s Circle with two different Fortune 500 companies, I CAN NOT emphasize how important this mindset is.

Writing can appear to be a lonely business. It doesn’t have to be. You have people who will help you over every hurdle, so react positively and KEEP GOING. Setbacks and disappointments happen. Being upset doesn’t help. Knowing setbacks will happen – and that you’ll get through it – does.

  1. Some people get like that repeatedly but everyone must persevere not matter how hard the road gets. To quit on something that you care about more than anything else is to admit defeat. In the words of Winston Churchill ‘Never, never, never give up’. That is the maxim that I live by all the time.

  2. Yep! Definitely.
    After twenty + years of writing in a bubble (don’t ask), I finally listened to my wife and came onto Word Press. Since then, slowly my writing has improved, my flippant approach has diminished and more fun with seriousness has set it.
    Disappointments, set-backs, let-downs? Of course, that’s what it’s all about. But when I have found I have sold another kindle download this month (no, not writing as a profession), Wow I feel I’m getting somewhere!
    Have to re-blog this.
