Wild Woman of Queens: Notes on Urban Creativity from across the East River.

book promotion- BEA style Sandra Lee Schubert 2009

New Possibilities

Yesterday I watched a Les Brown talk on Youtube. Les Brown is a motivational speaker who came from hard times to become a success. He reminded me again of taking chances, going for it in a big way.

Hungry. Be hungry. When you are hungry you find a way to get food. I hear this again and again from successful people. Find yourself a damn big goal and go for it. Do you want to be the next JK Rowlings? Better start writing. Win an Oscar? Take classes.

The Book America Expo reminded me of that too. There were lots of hungry people there. You could see it in their eyes. They scanned the expo for the next opportunity. No grass was growing under their feet.

I know times are tough. Believe me I am in the muck and mire of toughness. I bob and weave. I fall into despair and I rise back up. This is the ebb and flow of life. Sometimes living just plain sucks and other times it is great big ball of fun.

Feed your hunger with good stuff and leave the junk alone. Take a chance. Then take another. Have fun. Remember you have more control then you think.
