Since I was a teenager, I became obsessed with quotes and reading interviews and books of successful people. I remember one of the first books I bought was from Donald Trump on how to make it in life.
Over the years, I have read many interviews and books of such people. They may have been celebrities in entertainment or politics or just normal people like you and me in my local community and city.
Learn from Successful People who Have Done What You Want to Do…
When I wanted to write a novel, the first thing I did was find people who had already done what I wanted to do. I read articles and blogs about how someone wrote their first novel.
When I was ready for querying my novel to literary agents, I researched how others had done it. I listened to their interviews and soaked up their words of wisdom.
Now that I’m getting ready to market my novel and pitch it to publishers with my literary agent, I’m looking for other publishers authors who successfully marked their novels.
It Gives You Hope and Teaches You Valuable Things
It’s inspiring. It gave me hope that if other normal people like me could write a novel and be successful, then why couldn’t I? This can apply to anything.
Right now, I’m pretty interested in how to become slimmer and get more toned specifically in the stomach area, so I’m looking for material from people who have already done what I want to do.
This is a great way to get yourself inspired and teach you loads along the way.
