A person needs to be strong to survive !
That doesn't mean muscular.
It means you have to believe in yourself !
You have to believe in your dreams.
You have to allow yourself to have dreams, and believe in them.
What do you want ?
Do you want to own your own house ?
You have to do something to get there.
Make a plan.
Do you want to be published, and
have followers and supporters ?
You have to follow and support others that have the same interests as you.

I started a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money for a platform I liked
to publish a book.
My target amout was $700.
As soon as my fundraising campaign went live, I got a private message
from someone that wanted to promote my campaign for a fee.
Promotions aren't bad.
I don't mind paying for services I need,
but it felt like these guys were vultures.
I was trying to raise the money for a publishing platform,
and these guys swoop in to see if they can get anything from me.
The next day I got three more inbox messages from three different
people, all offering me promotion services for a fee.
I wondered if I need some kind of promotion.
They said nice things like "We're here to help you succeed. "
but they felt like vultures.
I answered each message.
I said, "Thank you for your offer. If you want to help me succeed, you can
pre-purchase a book through the campaign to help get the campaign off
the ground and help it succeed."
I never heard from any of them.
They didn't even answer the message.
They could have politely said anything to decline.
It would have made them look more human.
They didn't want to give ten for a book, or donate two,
they just wanted me to give them some,
and they wanted a lot more than
what I was asking.
One of the 'promotion packages' actually had a $400 price on the cheapest
package ! The next level up for ' better service with more benefits ' was
I'm only trying to raise $700.
That means they didn't even look at my campaign.
