Universal Choice of Limits

universeSomeone once said, “The sky’s the limit.” Then someone else replied, “Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon.”

That’s supposed to be all enlightening and encouraging and shitstuff. I always figured my limit was as far ass my imagination could stretch and I’m a long way from that. Still, there’ve been times in my life when I pulled up short and thought, “What the hell? I can’t do that!” Case in point…self-publishing. I fought it for a long time despite people that I trusted urging me to try it. I was scared to dip my toe in the water much less wade in and swim to the deep end. As I just loaded DOUBLE CROSS, which is my FIFTEENTH (holy cow how is that even possible!?! self-published book, I realize that my fear is what limited me. Fear of failure. Fear of the unknown. Just plain fear. But I did it. Because the alternative was…safe. And we all know I’m a daredevil at heart. Of course I am. shiftyeyes

Anyway, when I was digging through the files for today’s nudge from the Universe, I thought now was a good time for this one.

There is no choice you’ve ever made, Silver, nor any you will ever make, that will limit you as much as you may fear.

Nor even limit you at all.

How cool is that?

Fear not, Silver, there have been no mistakes.

So here’s the deal. Don’t choose to give up your dreams. Go after them. Don’t limit yourself because of fear. Just look at me. Where would I be now if I hadn’t made the choice I did.

And now I have to choose to do some marketing which I fear far more than those pesky monsters who moved in under my bed. DOUBLE CROSS is up for preorder. Go snag your copy so it’ll be on your Kindle right after midnight on July 1st! Just CLICK HERE. I now return you to your regularly scheduled blog reading. 😉

  1. I recently met a skydiver who firmly believes the ground is the limit…

  2. Now I wouldn’t say there haven’t been ANY mistakes for me. :thinks back over the past 45 years: :shudders: But most of them were learning experiences and all of the worst ones are passed. Yeah, that whole fear thing. And the fighting the self-publishing thing. Yep Yep.

    Looking at you now, Silver, and seeing an inspiration. Thanks for poking me in the butt. =o)

    Good luck with the marketing. I feel all marketed out this morning, but it’s early yet.
