You Is What You Think You Is.

I finished a conference by Sandra Gallagher and Bob Proctor, less than three hours ago. Bob Proctor shared what he’s learned over a lifetime of studying the effects of your mind on your life. The book he based this seminar on was Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich.” The seminar and the book did not teach how to go to bed thinking happy thoughts and wake up a millionaire. It teaches you how to shift your thoughts to be in alignment with your true goals. I read that book when I first published “The Secret of Sentarra” years ago. Honestly, I loved a lot of what it said and scrunched my eyebrows at other parts. A lot of it, I didn’t understand then. But I kept reading books and kept working on my dream. I knew exactly what I wanted to do; I wanted to share my stories. I wanted to publish books. And eventually I wanted to work on film sets to turn them into films.  My very first memory (besides the terror of getting lost in a brand new house) is my 4th birthday. I don’t remember much of the actual party but I remember we decorated the house with green streamers that hung like jungle vines. I was “Rebecca, Lost in the Jungle.”  It was a story in my head, but I imagined a VHS as well, complete with the front cover and what the back would say.
Anyway. I digress.
All that to say that when I released my book it was a step of faith. A “if I don’t take action now, I will let myself down, and I need to prove that I’m serious about this.” So I took action, jumped heels first into the world I thought I had learned enough about — and figured out I didn’t have a clue when it came to publishing.
And thus the mind-whacking started. Some things I believed on my own and others came from other people’s mouth that my mind recorded and looped.
You can’t make a living off writing novels. Maybe non-fiction articles if you’re lucky, but not novels.
That book is so dark someone’s going to think you were kept in a closet growing up.
You can’t afford a good editor, and you’ll never make back what you put into publishing.
Self-publishing will never be successful.
There’s no way you can reach your readers if you self-publish.
If people read your books, they’re going to see deep inside you and reject you.
Your book will only sell if it has sex.
Your book will only sell after it’s made into a movie – if it’s made into a movie. You don’t have the personality to be an actress — and you’re too  short.
Earlier this year, when I decided to embrace imperfection, I started something called Miracle Morning. I must admit here that I’m usually too excited in the mornings to start writing to concentrate on anything else, but the MM’s helped launch me into the next phase of my life. The phase where I said, “You know what? My books aren’t going to be perfect. But every one will be better than the last.” And I realized it would be sad if I did write my very best book because then I’d have nowhere to go from there. So I started with affirmations like:
I can do, be, or learn anything I want.
I easily write 10 pages every day.
I am not ruled by fear or manipulation.
I will write the story in my head, no matter the genera.
I will strive to write well, then let go of worry and control.
I will never allow a publisher to dictate my limits.
I will not be afraid to write controversial or uncomfortable topics. God first, character second, audience third.
And you know what? It worked.
In March, I released “Swing.”
In September, I completed the paperwork for my own publishing imprint.
“Across the Distance” is in layout and cover design stages and should be released in a few months.
“The Calling” is being revised and re-released next year, along with the second book which is was finished a year ago this week, and the third book which will be my Nanowrimo Novel in November since I am leading the group here and need to write my own novel. 😉
So tonight I decided I need to start taking the first hour of the morning to work on myself. I wanted to type up my notes from the seminar and so I did. I turned them into affirmations. And here, I’ll share them with you. If some do not make sense, I apologize, but would be happy to explain the context in which they were given. Feel free to use or modify any that you feel would benefit you or share some of your own. Your mind is powerful. Tell it what you want it to think.
