I worked late nights for 3 weeks composing my book proposal for a publishing company, at their request, after reaching out to me. They have passed on my upcoming 2 books. I was encouraged by a lot of amazing souls on social media and I want to thank each and every one of you for your endless support for my work. I have learned the following information:
Chicken Soup for the Soul, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen: 144 rejections
The Help, Kathryn Stockett (yes, the award-winning movie was first a book): 60 rejections
Carrie, Stephen King: 30 rejections
The Thomas Berryman Number, James Patterson: 31 rejections
A Time to Kill, John Grisham: 28 rejections
And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, Dr. Seuss: 23 rejections
A Wrinkle in Time, Madeleine L’Engle: 26 rejections
The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger: 25 rejections
The Diary of Anne Frank, Anne Frank: 15 rejections
And even J.K. Rowling, the author the Harry Potter series, was rejected 12 times before becoming a household name.
While it pains me these works were rejected so many times, it does give me hope . And I urge for it to give you hope, as well, with regards to anything and everything you are accomplishing in your life (because you ARE accomplishing them all).
I’m truly thankful for everyone’s support thus far for my first 2 best-selling books on Amazon. There is nothing wrong with self-publishing AT ALL. Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon, created a wonderful space for so many of us to express our souls and creativity. He makes it easier for us to have a chance at this wild game of publishing. Same with the people of Audible, Apple Podcasts, etc. I received a pleasant surprise from the #1 NY TIMES best-seller, Gabby Bernstein, for her amazing supportive comment to me the other day!
And for this I am truly thankful.
I wanted to mix it up and go through a publisher because marketing books is extremely expensive. Plus, I’d like to have the help and support of professional companies. However, I’m not in any way ungrateful for Mr. Bezos paying a lot of my bills for me every year- and none of this would be possible if it weren’t for YOU.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart and soul.
There’s no doubt that there will be many trials and tribulations along the way in taming space for the benefit of all, unmasking its truths and using the boundless resources available to us. Taking a chance allows us to seek new horizons and we all benefit from being horizon hunters. – Buzz Aldrin
Exactly, Buzz, to infinity AND beyond. This goes for YOU and ALL YOUR dreams and desires, too.
Are you thinking about publishing a book? Well, there are some things to look for when it comes to entrepreneurs and book publishing companies who market to you in wanting to help you with this process.
I know how you feel. I’ve been there. I’ve been through hell and back in my life. Growing up was hard. Being an adult was hard. Especially losing my Dad, that was so incredibly hard. I know how you feel when you feel stuck, confused, frustrated, bitter, sad, and/or depressed. I’ve had depression. I have been to THAT dark place before. I understand how your paralyzing feelings of being STUCK in life.
I’m here to tell you there IS a light at the end of your tunnel. I, too, didn’t believe it at one time. No, I REALLY didn’t believe it at one time. There was this little tiny flame left inside of me, deep down, underneath the layers of fear and feeling unworthy. I understand how you feel. I’m here to show you that little flame left inside of YOU deserves to be brightened, and it CAN be brightened. And it WILL be brightened.
Do not give up.
Do not give up.
DO NOT GIVE UP.
Tell yourself this over and over again, and think about all of us in the world who understand how you feel because we, too, have been there. Do not give up. You ARE turning a corner, a new leaf, taking a more positive path now. Do not give up. You ARE following that light at the end of your tunnel because that light is your happiness, your weight being lifted off of your shoulders, your FREEDOM. Do not give up. Take small steps, but take the steps and surround yourself with those of us who have followed our light out of our tunnels and found our pathway to happiness and freedom. Do not give up.
You ARE surrounded by white light. You ARE surrounded by us who are here to help you get your courage, your worthiness, your passion, and your soul-calling back into the driver’s seat. You ARE going to be okay. You ARE a gift to this world. Don’t you dare think a negative thing about yourself right now! I am here to tell you that you DESERVE to follow your soul calling. I am here to tell you that you CAN do it- and I am here to help you.
Trust in yourself, think of every little thing that makes you feel grateful, and follow your soul’s nudges along your soul’s path towards what feels better and better and better…KEEP GOING!
You can do it. I believe in YOU. What you focus on expands. Like attracts like. Those tiny, fast-moving particles that make up your brain, that make up YOU, are responding to your thoughts, your feelings, your vibrations. Take it one hour at a time: train, retrain, affirm, reaffirm your thoughts. You learn the lyrics to a song through repetition. You learned how to drive a car through practicing each day. Do you remember when you were learning how to ride a bike? You were so determined to be able to take those bumper wheels off!
You CAN do this. You CAN shift your mindset from a place of limiting beliefs into a newly empowering and positive mindset belief system. You CAN do this. Be gentle with yourself, be loving towards yourself, be consistent with it each day. I promise it gets SO MUCH EASIER as you go along. Do you think a baby who learns how to walk falls down and gives up? No! A baby just gets back up and keeps going- and this is what you are going to do. This is what you are going to do because your soul is CRAVING to live by its calling. Your soul is CRAVING to live out its journey through your life’s desires. Your soul is CRAVING for your mindset to connect with it on a daily basis and start living in abundance.
Your soul is READY to start learning how to apply the law of attraction and start mastering manifesting abundance into your life! Abundance comes in ALL forms: happiness, friendships, love, careers, finances, and so much MORE! I started on this journey of what I can Mastering Your Mindset a little over a year ago and I was able to manifest SO MUCH into my life within 10 months:
A brand new car of my choice for free!
A brand new washer/dryer set of my choice for free!
An extra $4,000 in cash at one time!
A majorly positive SHIFT in my work with physicists!
My name credited in a short film produced by a Nobel Laureate, narrated by Tilda Swinton, and music by George Lucas’s company!
Losing 17 lbs through mindset journaling, alone!
Publishing my first book!
Starting my own thriving business!
And after 9 years of NOT trying, actually quickly manifesting my SOULMATE and ideal relationship!
This was ALL in 10 months of DAILY, consistent, Mastering Your Mindset journaling. I SHIFTED my mindset from a place full of anxiety to a place of gratitude, abundance, calm, peace, and so much more! Gifts of all sorts starting coming into my life so effortlessly because I was training my cognitive behaviorism!
And recently I manifested a bit MORE:
I lost 2 more lbs through Mastering Your Mindset journaling, alone!
I sold OVER 50 copies of my book in 3 weeks!
I got a raise in my work with the physicists!
One of my favorite authors just reached out to me, ME!
I manifested FOR my soulmate a huge promotion and raise in his work in chemistry!
And I manifested a nice birthday surprise for my soulmate that I didn’t even really expect for it to actually happen!
Some of my BIGGEST passions in life is to help souls all over the world. My drive for all of my manifestations is to HELP people and animals through being able to donate both my time and financial energy to various animal organizations and to science and medical research.
What is YOUR biggest passion in life? It’s never too late to start YOUR Mastering Your Mindset journaling and manifest so much abundance into your life as well!

I received a blessing today: one of my favorite authors, James Conroyd Martin, friended me on Facebook and I (eek!) very briefly chatted with him about his books of the Polish Trilogy: Push Not The River, Against A Crimson Sky, and The Warsaw Conspiracy!
Blessings, even brief ones, come in ALL forms from the Universe. Be OPEN to receiving them- always. You never know what may fall into your lap at any given moment in time! And you ARE worthy of your blessings!
