Monday Makeover (Attitude): Believing Is Seeing

If you’re like me, you grew up hearing the phrase Seeing is believing. This saying, however, is untrue and, if embraced, will keep you from success in your writing life and in your life in general.

One of the keys to achieving writing success is to believe that you will succeed before you actually do. Believing you will succeed before you actually succeed puts you in a frame of mind to succeed. Why? Because we attract what we believe. This is called the Law of Faith.

Scripture tells us that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11: 1). If we need to see something before we believe it, we are not operating in faith. But if we believe something before we see it, we are operating in faith.

The writing life is a faith life. If we believe we will be published before we are actually published, then one day we will be published. But if we do not believe we will be published, then chances are high that we will not be published.

What do you believe about your writing life? The good news is that if you don’t like what you believe, you can change what you believe. Now ask yourself this question: Do I need to change what I believe about my writing life?

    This is wonderfully stated, and something I have never considered. Since faith is how I live and my inner core, I am just now beginning my journey in positive thinking. Thank you for reminding me that creativity is one of God’s great gifts, and failing to make use of all the precious talents He has bestowed is a wilful wasted.
