“A gold medal is a wonderful thing, but if you’re not enough without it,
you’ll never be enough with it.”
-John Candy, aka Coach Irv Blitzer, Cool Runnings
…win the gold.
…become a bestseller.
But that’s a risky line of thinking. Does it mean we don’t see ourselves as true writers unless we get published? Does it make our characters and stories any less compelling?
That’s why John Candy’s advice is so wise. He’s talking about inner value, having confidence in yourself and your work, no matter what the outcome.
Like the Jamaican bobsled team, your writing is unique, beloved and unforgettable!
