Of all the infinite decisions and binary possibilities, the countless events and seemingly impossible circumstances – you were born into this existence.
Despite that truth, we inherently don’t believe in ourselves or the fact that you are literally living proof that anything is possible!
And I am no different….
At some point I stopped believing in myself and although I have manuscripts written and completed, I have not sent any query letters or reached out to any publishing companies or agencies.
It’s because I was afraid, I suppose. I believe deep down I was unsure if my work was good enough or even worthy of others reading it. But, I am not alone, because there are a lot of people like me.
That all stops today, for I have been afraid for far too long. Now it’s time for something different. It’s time to fail!
…or not. Maybe I will be successful right away, who knows? I could be that Lion who just magically succeeds after one roar.
Either way you have to try. Without trying or attempt(s), nothing will change and I am tired of standing still.
“Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. Period.”
The only person holding you back, is yourself. There are people out there who may be less talented but have countless success because they are fearless. So, go out there and fail your little butt off. Success resides on the other side of fear. So open that door and say hello to success. Apparently, she’s a beautiful blonde who has two margaritas waiting for you.
My wife found an agency in our area who are actively taking submissions. That means that this Lion will put on his big boy pants and get the application together. I have had query letters set up for a year now, so basically I am ready right now. By putting this message out there, I am officially throwing down the gauntlet. It’s our time to shine baby!
