You're Amazing!

Dear Friend,

Been doing some filming this week for a doco I'm making. Fun - but a different discipline to pure writing obviously - but it all starts there.


And as any TV exec know - just look at the front credits these days - the best people to lead any visual projects are writers, who often have the innate understanding of structure, pacing and form that writing engenders.


Once a writer, it's hard to break the hold of writing.

I came up with what I consider a brilliant idea for a novel this week - a sort of vampire meets alternate history adventure quest - started plotting it - but time, as always, seems to be the enemy.


I have so many fiction projects to complete I literally can't see the wood for the trees - or the paper for all the potential reams I would use!

I need clones of me - all working away in a back room, locked in until they finish their books. It's no wonder James Patterson co-writes - it's the only way to keep up with the ideas...

THIS WEEK'S ARTICLE:
You're Amazing!

Robyn Opie Parnell

A lot of the time, I feel so happy I could burst. I love my life. I love waking up in the morning. I look forward to every day.

I’m happy with who I am. I’m happy with the way I look. I’m happy with my relationship with Rob. 

I’m happy with my home, my friends, my work and my writing—everything. 

If I’m not happy with something, I change it. Simple as that.

Nowadays, I only allow good experiences into my life.


I haven’t always felt this way. In fact, for the first half of my life, I wasn’t very happy and, to be honest, I wasn’t always a likeable person. I had problems with myself and other people. I struggled to get through days. I was often grumpy and difficult to get along with, and sometimes I was mean.

I sent all of this out into the world and I got it back.


Then I became ill. You may have heard doctors report that many of our health problems are caused by stress—negative thoughts and feelings. I realize now that I brought this illness on myself through the negativity in my life.


About this time, someone—who I now think of as an angel—gave me a copy of a book about the power of our thoughts. I read the book and experienced not one, but many light-bulb moments.

I’m indebted to the little angel—okay, he was a large man—who gave me the book. I went on to read everything I could find on the subjects of positive thinking and the Law of Attraction.   

But to read the books wasn’t enough. It was up to me to change and I’m so glad that I did.


Some of the books I read were old, written back in the early 1900s. Wow! We’ve known this information for a long time.


But we’re not taught this information in schools. Our parents don’t teach us. We’re left to find this information by ourselves. What if we don’t know it exists? How are you supposed to find something you don’t even know is out there?


If I’d learned this information when I was younger, I could have been happier and experienced a better life, instead of struggling for so long. Imagine what I could have done. I’m grateful that I’m doing it now!     


I would have liked to learn this information as early as possible, especially as I now know that this knowledge is as important as reading and writing.


The above reason is why I wrote
You're Amazing. I want you to have the advantage I didn’t have when I was younger. I want to give you all the help, within the pages of my book, for you to be happy and create your ideal life. 

Basically, every person wants to be loved, happy, healthy and successful. We’re human and, in a nutshell, this is what life is about—love, happiness, health and success. But a lot of people don’t know how to get these things or make them happen. In fact, many people get what they don’t want. (I explain why too, in the book!)

How about you? 


You’re popular, right? No problems there. Or is there room for improvement?


Are you shy? I struggled with shyness for the first three-quarters of my life. Most of the time, I was too scared to talk to other people, even my friends. I was afraid that I might embarrass myself or look bad in some way and that people might think terrible things about me.


Are you happy with your appearance? Do you like your body? I used to think that I was unattractive, even ugly. Did you know that you can change physical things, such as your appearance and your body, with your thoughts?


Is there anything you’d like to improve or change about your life?


Would you like to be rich? Unfortunately, some rich people aren’t happy. I bet you’d prefer to be rich and happy. Don’t feel bad if you want money. Your desire to have enough money will enable you to help charities, like I support several charities through my websites.


You can have it all. You can do anything. Best of all, you can have a happy, wonderful life.


Your thoughts create your life and the world around you. If you believe something—if you think that it’s true—then it is true. 

Whether your thoughts are right or wrong doesn’t matter. If you believe something, it becomes your reality. 

Did you know that you control your thoughts and feelings? You control your life. No one else does, only you. This is fantastic news.

Did you know that happiness is a decision? Right now, if you’re unhappy, you’ve made a decision to be unhappy. Everything in your life relates back to your thoughts. You can decide to be happy and you will be happy.

You might not believe that you can do so much good or bad with only your thoughts. But you can.  

You're Amazing will explain it all to you and how you can have a wonderful life. 

Yes, by using your thoughts in ways which are helpful to you.

To Your Success!
