Four Kinds of People

With the end of the first half of 2010 rapidly approaching, I've decided to change my mindset for the remainder of the year. So first of all, I'm setting new goals for the next 6 months. Second, I'm pulling out the inspirational books to give myself a much needed pep talk. The first book I pulled off the shelf is Miracles Happen by Mary Kay Ash. No I'm not a Mary Kay Lady. I had used their products for years until my soy and gluten allergies got worse. Enough said. Anyways, the first thing you read in chapter 1 is this:

There are four kinds of people in the world:
  • those who make things happen
  • those who watch things happen
  • those who wonder what happened
  • those who don't know that anything happened!
For this later half of the year, I will be one of those people who makes things happen.

Amen, sister! You know, I don't remember giving myself that peptalk; however, I sure have noticed that I have been acting this way since becoming published in February. These things are not going to happen for us unless we take charge. Good luck to you.

Good luck with the new attitude, but I have to say you have always seemed like a get it done kind of person to me.

These are a few of the things I know you have going on apart from your prolific blog writing.

1. You're co-author of the new serial novel Bloodleggers.

2. You're author of the award winning Twitter novel The Courier.

3. You are the backbone and constant workaholic on Vamplit Writers. Without you the group would not exist.

4. You have completely revamped and updated Blood Read.

I can't wait to see what happens now that you're really motivated.
