One of my favorite blogs is The Water Witch’s Daughter, written by SuziCate.  When I saw she was doing guest posts around the blogosphere promoting her new book, Stepping into the Wilderness, I immediately asked if she’d do a guest post here. Suzi’s blog never fails to inspire me – and this post is no exception.

“Your talent determines what you can do. Your motivation determines how much you are willing to do. Your attitude determines how well you do it.” ~Lou Holtz

You are extraordinary. You are gifted with talents which make you unique.

Stop the struggle against yourself. Believe in yourself. Let your talents guide you to a life of fulfillment.

Don’t allow your talents to lay wasted upon the ground.

Be courageous. Hone your craft. Release it to the Universe.

Success doesn’t mean your song has to hit the top ten charts. Success is singing your love song to the one who deserves to hear it. Success is not a best seller. Success is when your words touch someone’s life in a positive way. Success is not a masterpiece. Success is the resonance between the creation of the artist and the viewer. Success is simply giving what you have your best shot.

Use the gifts you were given to satisfy your soul. Use these gifts to bring joy to others.

Choose happiness. Spread cheer along your path of life.

Be who you are. Make your life count.

    Amen to that! And SuziCate's words touch so many lives in all sorts of positive ways.

    Becky, thanks for hosting this post and nice to meet you. I just read your post about wine. Could you turn yourself into an app? 🙂

    Thank you for your kind words, Sharon.
    Isn't Becky a wealth of knowledge? She's an interesting, fun, and might I add cool, lady to hang around. One of these days she and I are going to “winery hop”…that's a classy version of “bar hopping!

    I love the image of releasing your craft into the universe. My definition of success certainly evolves depending on what experiences influence me.

    Now, that I've changed my view of success I am a much happier person. I think we sometimes push ourselves so hard we never measure up to our own expectations.
