I’ve discovered what it takes to succeed!

“Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you,
and in the end you are sure to succeed.” 

Abraham Lincoln

Everything I needed to know I’ve learned from watching the wildlife around here. Here are a few of my discoveries about success and survival:

1. It may be a long journey. Stay nourished — physically, of course, but writers also need to feed their creativity.

Yum! Just what I needed.

2. Be open to advice.

WHAT are you suggesting?

3. Don’t overlook the little things.

I may be small but I know how to make myself heard.

4. Be proactive. Get a jump start on the competition. Success doesn’t come on a silver platter. You have to reach for it.

You know what they say about the early bird!

5. When you encounter difficulties, don’t give up.

Hang on!

6. Value the friendships you make along the way.

Cooperation and support mean a lot
