#MondayMotivation I spent months making up excuses as to why I couldn’t finish certain writing projects. Then I changed my mindset. Now I’ve released my first book of poetry, another one is in editing, and I’m going through a fifth draft/edit of my first [completed] fictional work. Two weeks ago I was about to throw it all away, but with a change of mind I realized the only obstacle to my success is ME. You’ve gotta believe in yourself and your dreams – NO MATTER WHAT! NO MATTER WHO REFUSES TO SUPPORT OR BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU CAN DO. Don’t let ANYONE – especially family and friends – discourage you from turning those [positive/uplifting] dreams/ideas into reality. You’ve got this. Now get to work!
