Most Success Springs From Failure



Most success springs from an obstacle or failure. I became a cartoonist largely because I failed in my goal of becoming a successful executive ~ Scott Adams

In writing, this can be very true. I come up with a couple of great characters, a great plot, write a few chapters, and submit them to various people for their feedback. Most of the time, I think they are going to come back and tell me how wonderful and brilliant my writing is. Almost always, they help me find holes in my plot and inconsistencies in my characters. Then, what I revise usually turns out better than my original idea.

The awesome thing about perceived failure is the opportunity to rebound and make things even better than they were before, or go in another direction. Just because something doesn’t work out, doesn’t mean you can’t move on to other things. I thought I wanted to be a direct sales leader, now I know my calling is to be a writer.

How have you overcome perceived failure? I’d love to hear!

The Way We Meet Events



I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends more on the way we meet the events of life rather than on the nature of those events themselves ~ Alexander von Humbolt

What a crazy three or four months my life has been! We started the process of buying a house on July 19. It took 88 days close. During that time, I started and completed another novel, and received a submission back. The work job got insanely busy for a period of about six weeks and continues to be out of control.

Through all this, I knew that once we got through the closing and the busyness at work, life would calm down again and I could focus on writing. Now, revisions on both manuscripts loom in front of me as I attempt to get them done by the end of the year. As the holidays approach, I know our lives with continue to be busy and it’s just a matter of sticking to my daily routines to achieve the goals.

If you don’t have regular dream goal routines in place, busy times are good time to establish them. Sometimes I get more done and am more productive when life is busy. I seem to be able to fit all the important things in when I’m busy.

How do you still accomplish your dream goals when life is so busy?
