What is faith?

Faith is complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

Do you have someone in your life that you completely trust?

Are you totally confident in your beliefs?

Do you have faith in yourself?

Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Happy New Year!

30 Dec

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays this past week. For me it’s been a very hectic and fun season so far. All the craziness and festivities have thrown my schedule off a bit, but I intend to get right back on track this week.

It’s hard to believe that this is the last Wednesday of 2015. I’ve set a few goals for the new year, nothing too outrageous or lofty. This year I set reasonable goals that I can achieve if I work hard and stay on course.

I wish everyone a wonderful new year filled with great achievements!

New Year

Today I want to talk a little bit about ambition. Some people view ambition as a bad thing, while others consider it a more positive thing. I believe ambition could be both good and bad. I see ambition as the food that helps us grow as writers, artists, doctors, lawyers, teachers . . . If we eat the right kinds of food, in the right amounts our bodies become healthy and strong. If we eat too much food, especially unhealthy foods, we gain weight and potentially become morbidly obese, and become sick and eventually die of a heart-attack (okay––maybe a bit dramatic), but overeating is definitely a bad thing. If we do not consume the proper amounts of food our bodies require for the energy it expends, we starve.

It’s the same with ambition. A healthy dose of ambition can help us reach our goals and grow in whatever field we’re in. A lack of ambition will keep us stagnant, never moving forward, never achieving our goals––stuck.

So lets work hard, become determined, eager to achieve our goals and lets motivate each other to do the same. Lets be ambitious!
