Inspiration for Indie Authors
Just a quick note about not giving up. As I’m writing this, Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints quarterback, just passed Dan Marino’s single season passing record. You may not like football at all, and that’s fine. That’s not what this little piece is about. Here’s what Brees overcame in order to be in a position to break Marino’s record. In 2005 Brees tore his labrum in his right (throwing) shoulder. The injury could’ve ended his career. Brees could’ve let it end his career. But he didn’t. He rehabbed his shoulder and has performed even better in New Orleans than he did in San Diego.
Not only that, Brees is heavily involved in his community and charities. If you listen to him talk about the injury, he says that what was the worst thing that could happen to him became the best thing that could happen to him. It made him a better person, not just a better quarterback.
As indie authors, we face a lot of adversity. Not everything is going to go your way. But if you persevere, you can overcome hurdles. You can see blessings in those negative things. Hang in there and it will come.
