Most writers if you ask, would probably admit that they love nothing better than to get good reviews on their books. However, as we all know, no matter how good a writer you think you are, you won’t please everyone. A book can be a five star for one reader and a one star for another.
Even though we love getting reviews, often no review is better than bad reviews. Some readers will not hesitate to tear your work apart so always be prepared for this and don’t take it too personal. Look to see if there is anything valid about the critique and if so, how you can improve your writing. Remember, writing is an art that gets better with practice.
Life can be challenging and often self-doubt is the biggest deterrent to people fulfilling their dreams and living up to their greatest potential. Doubt hold people back. Each and every one of us can achieve greatness. Sometimes people are excited and driven at the start, until doubt creeps in, and they stop believing in themselves and their abilities. Doubt will cripple you if you let it. It can stop you from achieving self actualization. You have the power to change this. Let go of self doubt. Keep your mind focused on success.
