Thought of the moment....

No matter how hard you try, you will NEVER control anyone else's attitudes, actions, or outcomes. The only person that you have the ability to directly impact is you, and it is your responsibility to learn how to do just that...to utilize the knowledge, skills, and abilities you have been given to impact the world in the most positive way that you can EVERY chance you get!

Deadly Sin # 3…Greed

Greed is applied to a very excessive or rapacious desire and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.  Yes, I admit that I come across greed when it comes to my writing. I want my writing to be recognized, so I guess I want the status of being known to the world. The wealth wouldn’t be a bad thing either, but I am ok now with or without it.

Also with greed, I am compelled to get things done. I am greedy to get my WIPs done, greedy to get as many MS written as I can. The more of my own work I have, the better I feel about myself…status to my own mind perhaps. My own power.

Power. What gives you power? Power to me is something that is achieved by working really hard on something and creating something you believe in. To me that is power. I have power because I believe in what I am doing. Do you have power? I bet you do…

Power through the belief in myself! And the belief in wonderful people like you!
