Browsing the book section at my local Meijer store, I noticed the headings above the display of books. The first one that caught my eye said Bestselling Authors. My inner child kicked in as I thought, they only have books by bestselling authors? Why not a section for new authors? I guess I’ll have to become a bestselling author.
I looked further down an aisle and a calming sensation washed over me. The heading above the books in this area said Inspiration, my favorite. The books displayed were also by bestselling authors. Surely my forthcoming book could fit somewhere on that shelf.
I looked around to see if anyone was watching. I slowly slid Joyce Meyer’s book to the left, moved T.D. Jakes to the right, and shifted Joel Osteen just a tad. Chicken Soup for the soul had too many books to relocate. Finally there was space for my book. The book that is sure to strike a chord of inspiration or birth a series of smiles.
It has been said that you have to visualize what you want. My grocery store experience was a visualization experiment. I thought about standing there with my eyes closed to lock the image in my mind. The image was replaced with one of store security carrying me away because they thought I was not stable. Instead, I pulled my phone from my purse and took pictures of the rows of books.
Fearless. You have to “be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.” What is it that sets your soul on fire? The time is now to chase your fashion.
