“Don’t let destiny slip away. Make it happen”
Hello and thanks for dropping in!
Quick update: I have stepped away from writing serious stuff and started writing fiction. My advance read team is currently finishing off reading the first novel in my Peter Carter series – starting with “The Escape“.
Thus allow me to just mention my final fling at the serious stuff below before I jump on the Fiction Train.
This blog welcomes everybody who is on their journey through life.
During this journey we find that we are also creatures of habit – both good and bad.
Habits are Powerful.
They are hard to break once established since they are comforting, perhaps even addictive.
And we embed them into our daily lives by rewarding them. Until they take control.
My bad habits affected my relationships, my job, my health – my life.
For one, I stood on the wrong side of the credit card equation for many years. In one country we were even threatened with “personal visits” and a home invasion if I did not solve my credit card issues.
But my biography was, thankfully, not my life.
Change is possible.
I found 4 D’s to be of great value in overcoming changing my habits.
Decision. Dedication. Discipline. Doing = A World of Difference.
Not only did it help us conquer the Debt Demon. It also helped me to finish my latest book, which is currently available on Amazon.
