Are you a complaining writer? If so, consider putting aside your complaining and replacing it with gratitude. Why? Here are a few good reasons:
1) Gratitude sets your mind on the course of success. It generates a positive expectancy that attracts opportunity, favor, and the help of those who can contribute to your success.
2) Gratitude makes you a joy to deal with. Editors often deal with disgruntled writers who can sometimes make life miserable. When you are a grateful writer, you will be remembered by editors.
3) Gratitude makes your writing journey a pleasure to take. The writing profession has enough challenges without adding to them through ingratitude. Grateful writers weather the storms of a writing career much more easily than those who are ungrateful.
4) Gratitude is a commandment of God. This is the most important reason for being grateful. Scripture states: “In everything give thanks, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (First Thessalonians 5:18). There is no question about it. God wants us to be thankful in the midst of every circumstance. Bottom-line, our gratitude indicates our trust in God.
Gratitude is an attitude that one chooses. Choose to be a grateful writer.
