Yesterday, while on our camping trip, we decided to take the kids fishing.
I am the only one with any fishing experience, which isn’t saying much.
As a kid, when other kids got trophies for “biggest catch” and “fastest catch”, my first trophy was called…
_THE FISH STORY._
After my first fishing trip, I was asked if I caught anything.
I told them I was pretty sure I felt a nibble and then the fish left.
Hence, the trophy.
In fact, I am fairly certain I went on about 50 fishing trips before I ever caught anything.
So now you know what we were up against.
But I never mentioned the 50 trips to the kids, because there was no sense in discouraging them.
To make matters worse, we got to this fishing reservoir just before they were closing and we could only rent poles for 20 minutes.
I told them that I just wanted the kids to have the experience, and that 20 minutes was better than nothing.
Low and behold, my son Ray (9) caught a 10 inch Rainbow Trout on his 7th cast, 2 minutes before we had to turn in the fishing rods.
We were stunned and proud. He was very proud.
More importantly, it just goes to show you that you never know what will happen if you just give it a try.
The odds make no difference if you don’t take the chance.
That is why I am sharing SIERRA MELCHER’S STORY INCUBATOR with you this week. You never know what will happen after you try to get your book done.
Her mission is to help women get their stories out to the world.
You can find out more here, and book a call with her to see if it is a fit for you. The next Story Incubator (for women) starts this month.
_Leap. Love. Grow._
P.S. Once we caught the fish, we were in a panic about what to do next. That is where an expert with advice is very helpful.
The same goes for your book. Get some expert help at the points you need and keep moving forward.
