Thanks for your encouraging words!!!
To the point and just what i need :) thank you.
Hi Diane - short and succinct and so useful .. to have the brain nudge - cheers Hilary
I believe....well, sometimes I do. :)
Belief can help sustain us indeed
Indeed. We do need to believe in ourselves, but we mustn't become full of ourselves either. :)
Yes! We can do it. :)
Sometimes belief wavers though. Harsh criticism can kill a budding writer faster than anything. By *harsh* I mean vitriol. Not constructive help that every conscientious author is ready to provide.
Belief does waiver but I know what to do to get it back. Take a walk, call a friend, turn off the TV, write a letter, pet my dogs, try a new recipe ... anything that takes me out of my head. Nice, simple post. I love it!
Yep. And keeping that belief strong is darned hard.
My strength of belief in myself comes and goes. Sometimes I need to remind myself I'm doing okay.
So true, Diane....We definitely need to believe in ourselves.... Tis is where the passion starts...
Believing in ourselves and our stories is so important.
Short and savvy... My belief is strengthening. I'll get there in my own time.Thanks Diane!
Believing in myself has alwyas been a struggle for me. It seems to be one of the most important things we can do for ourselves. Thank you for the encouragement.
Belief is a huge part of it. Having strategies to renew your belief are important too. Petting my cat and hugs from friends and family are high on my list of renewal strategies.
A wonderful word. It's necessary to believe because if you believe in yourself, only then will others believe in you.
Thank you. I needed that today. I recently ordered some business cards for a seminar event I will be attending. I haven't ever needed them before because I live a quiet life, rarely conversing much with people. However, I am in the middle of writing my memoirs and when the card had a space for a title, I put Author and Artist. I have tangled that on my tongue for a couple of weeks now, wondering if I really have anything to say that others will want to read. But, whether they read it or not, I am still writing it. And whether they buy my art or not, I am still making it. So, I guess I need to relax my tongue and just let it flow. I am and author. I am an artist. I feel better now. :)tm
Indeed! Beautiful sentiment here.
Yes we can! =)
Absolutely! It can be hard to keep the faith, but without that belief it is too easy to give up.
Amen to that.

A very inspirational Post!!! Thank You!
Belief in yourself or what is possible goes for all aspects of a person's life. People are held back by limitations they feel and others achieve great things because they believe it is possible. The crux is accepting where your efforts fall.
A good choice for B and for writers. I think the major reason that we struggle with believing in ourselves is because our culture doesn't believe in us. When the "voices" of the culture are telling you that what you do doesn't matter, or has no lasting value, it means that as artists and writers we are swimming against the current. This is why we need to support each other.
...And when that belief waivers, it's nice to have a website like this to come to.
Yes, we definitely can and must if we are going to achieve our goals!
Wonderfully encouraging words!
Simply but eloquently put!
Thanks for the motivation!Dan Brown A-Z
It took over 20 years for my first book to be published. I always believed it would happen. Thanks for the inspirational post, Diane
