I am an indie writer. At this point In time, I am a virtually unknown indie writer. That isn’t always going to be the case. I will be a successful indie writer. Not because I’m lucky, but because I have chosen to be successful, and I know that I will be.
I’ve read a number of how-to books on the subject of indie writing. Every one of them attributes some part of being a successful indie writer to luck. That is a lie!
Luck is a word we use to explain our failure to achieve our announced objective. Luck is what we label as the difference between those who made it and those who didn’t. That isn’t true. Luck is a cop out. Regarding your success, or failure, there is no luck. There is only what you believe with the total power of your being, and what you do not believe.
Einstein wasn’t kidding when he said, “I’ve come to believe that he (God) doesn’t play dice.” Jesus wasn’t kidding when he said, “As you believe so it shall be done unto you.” Vince Lombardi wasn’t kidding when he said, “The only way I can reconcile a loss is with the knowledge that if we had stayed out there long enough we would have won.”
Those are not three unrelated statements. Combined, they tell a simple story of how the universe works, and how we can work it, if we understand.
What Einstein was saying is, there is a system, a method, a way, that once learned, opens the door to everything. Jesus wasn’t subtle. He said, what you believe is what you will manifest. Lombardi wasn’t a poor loser. He knew that given time he could accomplish any objective he set for himself (and his team).
I’ve combined those three into what amounts to the secret of success. When you know with all of your strength and power that you will succeed at the task you have chosen, you will. There is no room for luck when you understand how things work and work them accordingly.
Ernest Holmes, the founder of Religious Science, put it this way, “Change your mind, change your life.”
