Life a Life You will be Remembered For

It doesn’t matter how big your house is, how expensive the car that you drive is or how many degrees you have. When you depart this earth no one is going to remember you for that. However if you live not just for yourself but help those in need and show empathy for others, if you stand firm as a voice for the voiceless and give hope to the hopeless, if you show by your love that you care…long after you are gone people will remember you as someone who lived and made a difference.

Vanity Publishing v Self-publishing

Which Should You Choose


Many new writers are often unclear on how to go about publishing their books. Getting Traditional publishers to take them seriously is an arduous process, which often end up in rejection letters. Some chose to go the self-publishing route; some get published by vanity publishers.
So, what you might ask is the difference between Self-Publishing and Vanity-Publishing?

In self-publish you have full control of your work. You are responsible for doing everything yourself. It is up to you to ensure your book is properly edited and you have a good cover that will catch the eyes of readers. You know all the cost involved and you know how your money is spent.
Vanity publishers can be tricky. They will give you a glowing review about your book, shower you with praise and give you false hope about making you a best seller. All this however comes at a price. The problem is once you pay up front, there is no guarantee you will make your money back. Vanity publishers are not interested in promoting or selling your book. They have already gotten paid so the rest is up to you.

Another thing I must make clear. If you decide to go the self-publish route you do not need to pay someone to do so for you. Uploading your manuscript to Amazon or other publishing website is quite easy. Instead invest your money in a good editor who will help to shape your work.

Book Reviews

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.

Five Secrets to a Happy Life

  1. Accept yourself for who you are and love yourself. You must learn to look in the mirror and love what you see, the image of who you are. Loving yourself is the first step towards happiness.
  2. Make peace with your past. Forgive those who need to be forgiven. Cut ties with those who cares nothing about your happiness. Surround yourself with positive, uplifting people who motivate and inspire you.
  3. Do not harbor bitterness or resentment in your heart towards anyone because in the end it will stifle your inner growth and peace of mind.
  4. Be kind to yourself. Pamper yourself every once in a while. Do something that makes you happy and make it all about you, you deserve it.
  5. Learn to say no. Remember that you are not here to save the world, so do not take on more than you can handle because you might not want to displease someone. You are never going to be able to please everyone or be everything for everyone. You must be able to say no and feel no guilt about doing so
