Entrepreneurship- When the worst happens


I had what some could call a major setback in business. For about two weeks I had something grow from minor to major. I kept my patience through it all. Not because I had to but because I wanted to. I was determined to have a great outcome no matter what the circumstances looked like. Near the end, just before they told me there was nothing further that could be done I said to myself “Sometimes things happen to help you move from good to great. This is your opportunity to take what you have left and rebuild it into something better.” I did just that. Still not completed but it ‘is’ better and I’m proud to say that I didn’t lose my cool. I worked through it and things actually turned out better than they were prior to what could’ve been a catastrophe if I had given in to it. Next time all seems to be going wrong in your world, stop for a moment and look for the opportunities; The ones that seem hidden below the pile of issues from whatever circumstances, yes, those. Look for the opportunity to make ‘better’ what has gone wrong in order to make it go right.

Are you scared to write that story?

 

Sylvia Hubbard Amazon PhotoThis week my Interracial Erotic,  A LITTLE BIT OF SIN, hit #1 on one of Amazon’s Bestsellers list. I was ecstatic because I had overshot an author shero of mine, Zane and her book Addicted.

A Little Bit of Sin didn’t start as an erotic. Matter of face none of my books never really plan on being erotic. It was just one scenario in A Little Bit of Sin which stood out in my mind and somehow sensuality found its way to weave into the story.

I was recently asked by colleagues am I ever scared of what ppl will think of me when they read one of my books

Before I answer that question I would like to talk a moment about fear. To me fear keeps us from doing a lot the things we want to do – a lot of simple challenges and from the most extraordinary adventures life has to offer..

Four Letters!!

Fear will keep a rich man poor

Fear will keep a smart man dumb

How can four letters do so much damage to the human spirit?

Fear is like a fly.

You know that fly that appears out of nowhere when you’ve decided to use a once in a lifetime opportunity to settle down and watch a good movie. Yet this fly keeps landing on the TV. You spend so much time trying to swat the fly and get it away you end up missing the movie.

I’ve learned before I do anything, lets squash the fly before we even start!

SQUSH THE FEAR!

Kill it! Lay it flat! Murder the fear until there is no way and no how it can come back.

That fear is your fly! Handle it!

So to answer the question, do I get scared of what people will say when they read my books?

I had a fear about it, but I took my own advice and squash the fear long before I started writing the book.

I’m confident my story is good and readers will enjoy

Now I can’t guarantee that the fear will no longer come back or another version of the fear will return. There are a lot of flies in the world. Catch my drift?

…On to kill the next fly, so I can write some more.

I Said I Would


I said that I would

I said that I would heed to the call when I heard it

I said I would do it no matter what

No matter how much fear tried to overwhelm my spirit

No matter how much someone criticized what I am called to do

No matter how much anyone tried to distract me

 

I said that I would

I said that I would be obedient to your will

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said I’d do it even if you took me in a different direction

Even if I didn’t know where I was going

Even if what I started out doing changes

I said that I would continue

 

I said that I would

I said that I would do it no matter what

I said that I would do it even if I saw no end result

That I wouldn’t let my eyes disturb your vision

That I would only listen for the sound of your voice

 

I said that I would

I said that I would keep you first

I said that I wouldn’t get in the way

That I would remain humble to your presence

That I would stay in my place

 

I said that I would…
