From acorn to mighty oak
As I make my way down the path of indie publishing, I like the occasional pep talk to keep my enthusiasm high. Yes, I’m talking about positive thinking (no sighing here, you non-believers MUST NOT SIGH!).
Some people try to assign a “magical” quality to it, which makes the rest of us roll our eyes; but really all that happens is that positive thinking opens the door to possibilities (the”sugar catches more flies than vinegar” sort of thing – although catching flies is kind of gross…)
So keep on smiling, folks, and check out these positive expressions (must I say it again – no sighing! No sarcastic snickering either! Geez, what’s wrong with you people.):
Don’t forget the mighty oak was once a tiny acorn.
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.
When one door closes, another one opens.
The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
It’s full steam ahead and damn the torpedoes, all you indie publishers, and never stop writing!
