Quote of the Day: You Are the Author

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

– Toni Morrison, Author

Breaking out beyond what’s expected can be discouraging. Often times we stay within the confines of other people’s opinions, experiences, and expectations, at the detriment of our own happiness. Fear of failure, inadequacy, or even isolation can cause complacency to creep up like venomous snake waiting to devour its next prey.

This quote speaks on more than just simply writing a book on a subject you’ve never seen. It metaphorically describes how we must not take life sitting down, but create our own version of innovation, love, family, career, and happiness—even if it’s never been done before. The tools to succeed are already inside of you. You have the pen…start writing.
