Making mistakes is simply a part of life. It is something we don’t plan for. It would not be a mistake if it was coordinated. I like the idea that a mistake is a “miss take;” it’s missing a take on doing something.
We should all learn from mistakes. Unfortunately, not everyone does. It would seem like some people want to experience what others have gone through by the way they act. They do what others have done and have paid or is paying the consequences for, seemingly expecting to get a different result.
Taking control of your life is one of the cries of your heart. Most people would like to be in control of their destiny and even their current situation.
Unfortunately they do not know how to do that, are afraid to do so or simply have resigned themselves to “this is the way it is” mentality.
I’m one that do not subscribe to such. I believe if you can see the benefits of being in control of your life, you would do everything in your power to wrest control from others and place it in your own hands.
There are so many people today who are having all kinds of health related issues and not knowing what some of the contributing factors are. One of the culprits might be their job … their job might be killing them and they don’t even realize it.
I relate to some degree to this scenario when it became clear to me that I was to be doing something else … pursuing my dream.
You might be feeling something similar but for reasons such as fear, uncertainty or guilt, you choose to remain where you are.
If you were to tell me that I would have written and published a few books a year ago, I would not have believed you. I didn’t see myself doing that. I know that I could if I was given a chance, encouraged and have someone who believed in me.
However, this was the farthest thing from my mind. I would think that people who wrote and published books were gifted and had the “know how.”
In my mind, to write a book was for special people; people who had something to write about. I didn’t… at least that was what I thought. Until…
Writing and publishing your first book can be quite challenging. As a matter of fact it can feel overwhelming especially if you don’t see yourself as a writer.
Some people disqualify themselves from even starting to write a book by inserting limiting beliefs into the narrative surrounding book writing. They might say something to the effect, “I’m not a writer.” “I can’t do that.” “I was never good at writing” and on and on they’ll go.
What this does, is strengthen the belief. The stronger the belief, the less likely they’ll ever write a book.
