I Encourage You to Submit Your Work (PubSub3rdFri)

If you haven’t submitted a manuscript to a publisher, don’t be discouraged. Life sends us on detours. You will get back on track and submit your creative work to a publisher soon. You can do it. Here are a few quotes to keep you motivated.

Be like the little duck in Flip Flap Floodle – Never Give Up on your song no matter what happens. Even if it seems like you’ve been swallowed by Mr. Fox and there’s no hope, fill yourself with hope. Believe in yourself.

—Joan Y. Edwards

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.
Norman Vincent Peale

Never talk defeat. Use words like hope, belief, faith, victory.”
Norman Vincent Peale

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
Albert Einstein

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
— Howard Thurman (1899 – April 10, 1981) was an influential American author, philosopher, theologian, educator and civil rights leader.

Life has no limitations except the ones you make.
Les Brown
