I have written a number of blog posts and one of them was on the topic of motivation and never giving up on your dreams. As the term implies, “Physician heal thy self”, I am clinical psychologist who is currently struggling with issues centering on failure, motivation and how to follow my life long motto of “Never Give Up”.
I will now disclose my intimate confession of personal failures with the hope of not soliciting pity but encouraging my readers to find their own solutions and strategies in never giving up.
Failure number one, independently marketing and publicizing my first novel, FAMILY SECRETS: A JOURNEY OF GOOD AND EVIL. My website, familysecrets.tateauthor.com, will describe this fictional autobiography which I did pour my heart into and, in spite of the challenges of struggling with cancer survival, I did invest much energy into publicizing and marketing this book but with little success.
My motto, never give up, has now been applied to my next book, a children’s series with the first book entitled, NICKI NICES BULLY. I did submit a number of blog posts on this subject and the story is based on my granddaughter, Nicole’s, experiences as a victim of bullies. The website for this book is nickinicesbully.tateauthor.com. I do intend to focus much energy in the publicity and marketing of this book as well. Never Give Up!
My next experience with failure has been this very blog site which has not reached more than five readers who did not add any comments to over twenty-four posts that have been published. It has been some time since I dared to venture back to WordPress and create another blog post if so few readers wish to hear my voice. Never Give Up! Yes, I am honored to share my views and experiences with those readers who care to visit my Blog. Thank you, Thank you and never give up on me because I do promise to find enticing and informative topics to share with you.
Perhaps you can relate to feelings of failure and the desperation of finding a way to “pick yourself up and start all over again!” Motivation takes energy and, most of all, trust in yourself that what you have attempted to accomplish will, indeed, happen, some time soon. It just takes time, repetition and belief in yourself that you do have the ability to achieve success in whatever it is that you dream of and aspire to accomplish. NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!
