Talk is cheap, but getting the attention of the educated and informed listener will cost you. Not necessarily monetarily, but certainly time and effort. Everyone has something to say and it is important to be ready when an opportunity comes along to communicate in a meaningful way. Each day I discover just how important as I face the frustrating realities of trying to find that illusive word of mouth I am told is crucial to promote self-published books. It is true, of course, and unless I want to allow compulsive connectors to waste all of my time I have to constantly reevaluate and refocus.
Just this morning I recalled a lesson about being in a state of want. For instance, wanting honest feedback from people I respect or wanting to reach readers who need to laugh, to heal or to get a grip. Wanting very much to publish fresh, interesting content here not only to promote my work, but the work of those who share my desire to make the world a better place. To reach those goals I need to be in a state of acceptance, not in a state of want. Well, just as I was filling my cup with all of that, I received an email introducing me to an author who I believe has something important to say. Her work to inspire girls couldn’t be more timely or appropriate.
The headlines clearly show we are not doing enough to give girls positive examples for living a productive life or to help them find their voice so they can discover how to make a difference in a world they don’t understand. How can we expect them to become tomorrow’s leaders if we don’t snap out of our state of confusion and get back to the business of supporting our daughters? Each one of us knows a young person who challenges us to match our actions to our words. The “do as I say, not as I do” and the “because I said so” DOES NOT WORK. Check out this book; be brave enough to share it. Someone who needs encouragement will be glad you did.
