Personal Power

A few years ago, author Vicki Hinze gave me a card with some great advice.

I think the advice applies to life in general and especially the writer's journey.

The advice can be particularly effective if you look at yourself in the mirror and say the following to yourself--a very unique person:

I am flexible and open to change.

I am responsible and act in good faith.

I embrace only positive attitudes.

I am grateful and respect my work.

I write with purpose, success is not hollow.

I focus on solutions not challenges.

I have my own vision of success.

I know trials always precede opportunities.

I permit myself to fail my way to success.


  1. Very good advice!! I'll print it to remind me.

  2. Sorry, my fingers flubbed.

    That should be

  3. Excellent advice Sandy, thanks so much for sharing it with us.

  4. Thanks, Mary Jean and Billie, for visiting my blog and I'm glad you found the advice helpful. We writers can always use bolstering words. Hugs. Sandy

  5. Love these. Particularly of use for writers, who toil(mostly)in solitude.
