:) I know. Excuses, excuses.
Today I would like to share with you something that I learned from a beer billboard ad.
And you want to know the funny thing? I learned it while I was serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Atlanta, Georgia. A little ironic, I know. But when I saw this slogan, it stuck with me, and I've quoted it to myself ever since.
Are you ready? Here it is.
FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD.
And that's it. I have no idea what that has to do with beer. But it's true. Fortune totally favors the bold.
Writers? Be bold. Bold in writing. Bold in submitting. Bold in making friends at conferences. You never know what will happen. So why not try out the bold way and see what results it produces?
Fortune does not favor the fearful. (Fortune doesn't favor the stupid, either, so we have to make sure that we aren't being stupid and mistaking it for bold. Yes? Yes.)
Be bold! And tell me stories of your boldness!
