Credo for Living and Writing

At the front of my notebook of writing tips is a list of reminders and advice to myself -- a credo of sorts. Here it is:

1. Believe in yourself.

2. Expect the best.

3. Have a vision of victory and abundance.

4. Don't settle for a life of mediocrity.

5. There is adventure waiting for you. Run to it. Explore.

6. Be bold and brave.

7. Live the life only you can live.

What is your credo? What advice would you like to give to yourself?

This is a great set of motivational statements. I can't say I have any one statement but if I'm lacking in motivation I think about the fictional world history I've created and that spurs me to keep going. Almost as if I'd be letting millions of tiny fictional people down otherwise!

Is it sad, silly or satisfactory that my credo was best encapsulated in the movie GALAXY QUEST? "Never give up! NEVER surrender!"

Mine has always been: "Dare to Dream...and Dream BIG! And if that doesn't work, Dream BIGGER!!!"

The first line of this is on my home office wall--in my "zen corner". That's where I plot how I'll kill people off. :-)
