Thought for the Day: The Mountaintop

“The man on top of the mountain didn’t fall there.” –Vince Lombardi

How do you get to get to the top of the mountain? You don’t wish it into existence. You don’t dream about it. You put in hard work, building up your strength and honing your abilities. You buy the right equipment and use that same equipment to scale the mountain. The same goes for writing and anything else you want to achieve.

A teacher used to tell this joke in class: A man prayed to God that he would win the lottery. Every week, he prayed and asked God to give him the winning ticket. Finally, God answered, “Okay, you’ll win this week, but first you have to buy the ticket.”

Buy the ticket. Invest in yourself and your dream. Act on the dreams and wishes you have.

Happy writing!

I am an oil-and-water combination of humor, ambition, laziness, insecurity, certainty, procrastination, and drive. I am an aspiring romance novelist who writes by the seat of her pants. Waging and sometimes winning a daily battle with procrastination, plots, characters, and the day job.
