Waking up to Possibilities

My schedule creates a sense of peace for my day. Every day gets broken down almost to the minute. I know where I am going, what I am doing and even what the menu will be for each day. But there are those days when even though I know what lies ahead, there are limitless possibilities hiding inside those events.

This is one of those days.

I woke up with a bit of dread on my heart, but then I started to write. Writing releases energy and excitement into my very being. My whole body was tingling with anticipation as soon as I finished that first article. Now I know that anything is possible. My part is the actions and the belief.

Taking Steps to Possibilities

    1. Planning is a requirement for successful endeavors. You plan when you take a trip. You plan when you are training for an event. You need to plan when you want to reach out to tomorrow and grab hold of all the possibilities hidden there.

    2. Actions speak louder than words. The only exception might be in writing where actions and words are united, but you get the picture. If you want to be a writer then you HAVE to write. If you want to be a successful writer then you can expect to write a lot.

    3. Be realistic in your expectations. There is nothing that will slow down forward momentum faster than disappointment. Anything is possible but there are certain things that you may need to put in place for the possible to become the reality.

    4. Live within your means. A broken budget can crush a writing spirit. Live on what you made last month and not what you expect to make this month. And NEVER count the cash before the check is in the bank.

It is time to dream big. Think outside the box and see the possibilities that are just waiting to be discovered. The more you aim to accomplish the more you will accomplish. The only sure path to failure is to never try.

    Hi Kathryn –

    Great article! I was chuckling when you mentioned planning. One of these days, I’m going to write a post about some of my research gaffes. They’ve necessitated major re-writing that could have been easily avoided. I’m grateful I found them before handing a manuscript to an editor.

    Thanks for the pep talk. I’m working on two submissions for anthologies and researching two books simultaneously.

    Blessings,
    Susan 🙂

      That’s a lot to have on one plate, Susan! But I often find that the more I have to do then the more I am able to get done. It is when I have that one blog entry to complete that I manage to let time slip past!
