“You gotta believe!” is more than a positive affirmation in my case. It is the decision to have faith in God and my own unique abilities and talents. It is a commitment to achieve success through hard work, creativity, imagination, and using my writing skills to their best advantage. It is a step toward fulfilling a dream of being an independent writer/author working at home. And it is an opportunity to challenge myself to live a more balanced lifestyle while accomplishing a wider variety of projects.
