“I am thankful for all of those who said NO to me. It’s because of them I’m doing it myself.” Albert Einstein.
Recently I was on a visit to the “Book expo America”, where I got to meet other authors as well as industry experts. Wow! I have to say, what an amazing experience. The whole thing absolutely inspired me, including the events and panels, but most of all it was some of the wonderful people I met, one of which was Cindy Ratzlaff who is a branding expert, (I will tell you more about branding in future newsletters.)
I also met Jon Fine who is Amazon’s director of ‘Author and publishing relations,’ and C.J Lyons who is another successful self-published author. There were many, many others, all of whom inspired me to keep moving in the direction of my dreams.
But how do you keep moving forward when it seems to get so hard? What do you do when you’re out of ideas or feel isolated? You find your inspiration from somewhere.
Inspiration is everywhere around you. All it takes is for you to be open enough to receive it. And when you do get that spark of an idea, welcome it with open arms.
“Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.” Winston Churchill.
I was supremely inspired by the time I went back home, and it made me decide to use that inspiration to make changes in my life, including writing more and ensuring that I move forward with my business. For me it’s necessary to use the inspiration I constantly receive from many sources as the fuel of my “get it done” engine.
For you, your inspiration could be the fuel to start your “write my book” engine, or “find the help I need” engine. It’s really down to you.
Make sure to get inspired on a daily basis and use that energy to promote your writing/publishing goals.
