Sometimes I think if I stay in front of the computer long enough, maybe something will come to me... but it doesn't.
Last week while doing some research on the pro's and con's of self publishing I came across the name 'Amanda Hocking'...basically I was reading the questions and answers on a forum that I found when this guy ended his answer with “in a word Amanda Hocking”
So me being the intuitive lady that I am ;-) I wondered; who is Amanda Hocking? I preceded to Google her and what I unearth inspired and rejuvenated the vision of my own dreams.
Amanda Hocking a relatively unknown aspiring author who was turned down by several publishing houses decided to step out on faith and self publish. Three years and thousands of books sold later she is now a millionaire and living what was something she only hoped to be...A Successful full time writer with nothing financially missing.
Who doesn't love a success story? When you are experiencing a less than kosher life with not much to look forward to being able to see the success of someone with a similar background as your own, gives you hope for the future that you aspire to have for yourself.
But yet and still tons of doubt still entered into my head. Again I wondered; was I good enough? was my work good enough? Yes, I had to come to terms with the fact that i am not the best writer out there, nor am I the most inventive, but at least i'm doing something. At least I am stepping out on faith and not allowing the fear, doubt, and lack that haunt me to continue to hold me back. For if I am doomed to be afraid... then why not be afraid while doing something worth being afraid of! If i'm going to have doubts why not have doubts while facing something that seems impossible! and if lack insist on knocking at my door well i'm going to give it a run for it's money because this dream that I have will become a full reality...
Until next time...be Inspired2prosper!
This is my life unimpeded, unafraid and unashamed, on a journey from impoverishment to prosperity in every area!
