Never Give Up On Your Dreams

Each and every one of us has dreams. It is up to us as individuals to make those dreams come true. It's as simple as believing in yourself enough to follow through and to not give up every time things get tough. I've fallen victim to this time and time again. As soon as you realize that it's all part of it, you'll come to understand the process and you'll start to push harder. things will try to stand in your way. You will meet obstacles, whether they be inanimate or the people closest to you. Always look to God for inspiration and he will bring forth people that will inspire you. I had a dream once. I fought long and hard for my dream and at this very moment I'm still fighting. I'm fighting the odd, and I'm fighting the haters that have shown up in numbers to ridicule me and to try to tarnish my name before I even get it out there good. That discouraged me until I realized that just like all my previous hurdles, I can make it over them as well. every day I sign onto my computer and I check the Barnes and noble site, and I check the target site, and the tower site, and the amazon site and the borders UK site and all the others that have my book there and each time it's like seeing it for the first time all over again. I know that I still have a lot to do and a long way to go but when I look to where I came from, I can appreciate my journey thus far. there is absolutely no limit for me and there should be for any of you who want to do something with your lives. It may seem difficult, but it's only that if you allow it to be. with that said, go get yours and don't let anyone stop you from getting it. Don't let your dreams down.

How Do People Perceive You?

how do you carry yourself? are you one of those that walks around with the angry face as if the world owes you a favor? do you realize that you're losing opportunities by doing so? the more approachable you seem, the more likely you are to come in contact with someone who may be able to help you reach your golas. i'm not saying go skipping around smiling and singing showtunes but... if you carry yourself in a way that exudes trust to others, they will be inspired to approach you.

i'll give an example. had i not been approached by the right person at the right time, i wouldn't have a publishing contract right now. somone approached me asking if i knew who to contact and where he could go to get his book sold. after i pointed a few places out to him i started asking questions about his publishing company...a year later, i'm with the same company. all because he thought i looked approachable and look like someone to him, that could answer his question. now we're about to exchange autographed copies of each other's books and he's hooked me up with the names of some people to contact.

i know some of you are young and still wanna do this and that's time to wake up and get your lives together. stop thinking about the streets and focus more on "the office" whether it's finishing school, going after the job of your dreams, or starting your own business.

it really does make a difference when you attract and use the right people to get where you need to be. attitude reflects leadership but... if it's the wrong type of attitude, the only thing you'll ever be led to is a situation of struggle. find out what you want to do with your life...figure out what your skills are and what you're most content with and go for it. it's makes a huge difference to those around you when instead of saying...oh lord, there he/she goes as opposed to heyyyy there he/she goes!!!!!!!!

make sure that someone in your life is proud of what you're doing with yourself. and when you do become successful, show others how they can be a success as well.

this has been a don savant public service announcement.
