Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. – Dale Carnegie
My biggest goal for the upcoming year is to not let fear hold me back. To take the blank canvas of 2011 and create the life I want. It's a very grand resolution for me. I'm struggling with the strategies I need to make that happen. I know I need to take a more proactive approach to getting where I want to go.
So January will be focused on discovering what that life looks like. What do I want for the second half of my life? And what actions can I take today to achieve that?
In comparison my writing goals are more clearly defined because I know what I want: To be published by Harlequin.
