For a long time, I lied to myself about being a writer by telling myself things like “writers are poor,” “you can’t make a living as a writer,” and “writing novels isn’t a career option.”

And these lies writers tell themselves (aka: limiting beliefs) were holding me back from being the writer I dreamed of being.

It’s true that as writers, we often have limiting beliefs we operate under, most of the time subconsciously. But there are five specific limiting beliefs that are not only untrue, but that will also keep you from reaching your writing dreams.

Find out what those 5 lies are at Helping Writers Become Authors.

He Said That? 10/10/15

STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

From Laurence J. Peter (1919-1990), Canadian “heirarchiologist,” The Peter Principle (1968):

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it.

The Peter Principle is highly recommended. It is a short work that will change your thinking more than a library full of classics of organization and management theory. It’s better than an MBA degree, and a lot cheaper.

Putin to Charlie Rose

ed note–please compare this rational, logical man to ANY average politician (or even for that matter, to any average American) whose heart beats in perfect rhythm and syncopation with the drumbeat set by Israel and by organized Jewish interests in general.

Pay close attention to Putin’s smile at Rose’s idiotic question concerning ‘what Assad is doing to his people and to the refugees?’. Priceless.
