attitude, growth and ability...

I have not blogged much in the past week or so. I have been busy revising and re-writing the first two chapters of my novel for a writing contest. This exercise has shown me that we never stop learning. 

I want to be the best writer I can be and in order to do that I have to swallow my pride and keep plugging away. I have so much to learn. Eventually, if I don't give up, I will succeed in my goal. 

The following quotes have inspired me this week and I hope they speak to you as well.

"Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish."
John Quincy Adams

"Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it."
Lou Holtz

No matter what your dream is, don't give up. Keep going. God-willing, you will climb that mountain and reach the summit. Anticipate the view...wondrous...I can't wait to get there!
