Writing … who’s life will you impact? Be the voice, no magic needed!
Two excerpts from an interview on Youtube made me think of how failure can work for us – if we choose. Likewise, giving voice to the voiceless may be what drove me to write the “Playing Fair Series” eBooks. Talk about powerful… just think of the gift your voice is in helping others… yes PRICELESS!
Failing, as we know it, can be in our minds, right! So failing at anything gives us the opportunity and another chance to get back up, Change it Up, and try again. In trying again, as J.K. Rowling shared, we may find a strength we didn’t know we had.
In the “Top 10 Rules For Success”, J.K. Rowling’s said:
# 1. “Failure gave me an insecurity that I never attained by passing examinations. Failure taught me things about myself that I could have learned no other way. I discovered that I had a strong will and more disciplined than I suspected. I also found out that I have friends whose value was truly above the price of rubies.
The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are ever after secure in your ability to survive. You will never truly know yourself, or the strength of your relationships until both have been tested by adversity. Such knowledge is a true gift.”
- #10. If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your voice on behalf of those who have no voice…if you choose to identify with not only the powerful but the powerless, if you retain the ability to imagine yourselves into the lives of those who have not your advantages in life, then it will not only be your proud family who celebrates your existence but thousand and millions of people whose reality you have helped change. We don’t need magic to transform our world… we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already….we have the power within us to imagine better.
Also… J.K. shared RE: Children, Parents don’t tell them it’s unrealistic about anything.
New authors, or even parents, may feel some strange feelings about success, like I did:
- Before I listened to the interview above, I felt like… why was I pretending to be an author when it wasn’t my passion, as a child, to write books?
- I was attempting to help co-parents see the need of the children when in fact parents often only could see the hurt and separation anxiety they felt as adults. In reality, it would be hard to imagine the devastating effect on the children’s physiological growth that bickering and fighting could create.
- I had a message that needed to be shared. There is power in the message and I had the power to share it.
- My priceless friendships helped me to realize that I, as a writer, am valuable and my message is urgent, that people will listen and will learn from it. I also needed to hear my message, as a grandparent too, and how I am a valuable role model aka mentor to my grandchildren. Teamwork makes it happen!
