Set Yourself on Fire for 2013

It’s a new year and many of you have set ambitious goals or resolutions. Here are some thoughts on how you might actually meet those goals this year. Maybe you’ll set yourself on fire and exceed your goals.

The first and most important step toward success is the feeling that we can succeed. – Nelson Boswell

Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.

What do you do to set yourself on fire for 2013? 


  1. After a slow start last years — and too many distractions to get much writing done — this year, I’m putting on the books and I’m just going to power through. πŸ™‚ Thanks for the encouragement, Lynette!

  2. Oh Lynette, I think that I’ve been on fire and I’ve actually burned up all my fuel girl. I can only take it one day at a time. I do not have the energy to look too far into the future at the moment. I’m in a recovery period, although I would really like to finish just one book. But who knows when that will be. There seems to be a new fire always needing to be put out all the time. I love your attitude Lynette. I hope that you are able to make all your new goals for 2013. I’ll be cheering you on! πŸ™‚

    1. Karen, you are in a really tough place right now. One day at a time is okay. {{{Hugs}}} You will finish that book and more, even if you write one sentence a day right now. Thanks for the cheering,

  3. Love this! I seem to have a constant fire under me. LOL. I have been working like a demon on two different projects. Time to finish them both and start the next three. πŸ™‚
