Last week I submitted a post, Freelance writing: canned or creative, about this really neat content site, Ad Astra Traffic that I actually stumbled upon by accident. As noted, I applied to do some freelance writing for them and was accepted. Well, they had a contest (the fun started right from the beginning), where the winner would receive a T-shirt. Sadly, I must admit, I rarely enter contests, and what’s even more rare, is to win one.
But, I WON!!! I WON! I won the contest! Take a gander at my new t-shirt:
Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that since the (short-term) beginning of my association with Ad Astra, it has been great. I have gotten to know some of the people and their personalities through FaceBook, Twitter and other online forums, and I am glad to be associated with these professionals.
To my writer friends–you really should check it out. Who couldn’t use a few extra bucks. The last project I completed was really neat. I loved the subject and I learned so much about it. Because of the parameters set out for the assignment, at times I actually felt I was a character in the project. Anyway…I will not keep droning on about it. You can see for yourself.
To my other business associates–you should really check it out. The content and services they provide are top notch.
All in all, I want to say that being a winner is much more than winning a T-shirt, even though that was pretty nifty. A winner, technically defined, is someone who is “successful or has achieved something notable; a victor”. We each have the potential of being a winner.
Being a winner is a mindset–really. We are all successful at something and achieve notable feats every day.
I encourage you to take on the mindset of the winner you are today. Achieve your dreams, or at the very least, set out on the path and walk toward your goal.
Another person who inspires me is Alex Fayle, founder of Someday Syndrome. A mentor for the ultimate procrastinator, Alex offers solid advice and sound techniques about getting beyond the “roundtuit” attitude. However, that’s another blog for another time.
