The possibility of failure is always with us.

What the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Napoleon Hill
Challenge your fears to see if they are valid.
Ninety-nine percent of the time they’re just amoral busybodies intent on polluting our minds with negativity. They’re not real.
So confront your fears head-on through immediate, effective action.
Your courageous act – submitting your work for publication – is evidence your work is “good enough.” You wouldn’t let it out the door if it wasn’t.
If you receive a rejection slip back, understand the publisher who sees your value was not found at that address.
J.K. Rowling’s first Harry Potter book was rejected 12 times. She finally found the publisher who valued her and her work and now she’s one of the wealthiest authors alive.
Stephen King’s “Carrie” was rejected by 30 publishers. Today he’s a household name.
Do you think they weren’t scared? Of course they were.
They persisted in faith until they succeeded.
