Psychology of the Hater—Using our Naysayers to Fuel Greatness

Another great post from Kristen Lamb, self-pub guru. We ALL need to read this. Take it away, Kristen!

If everybody loves us we are doing something wrong. We are blasé. We are the mediocre middle and nobody cares or even notices the mediocre middle.

Want Success? Embrace the GRIND

Another inspiring post by Kristen Lamb, author and self-publishing genius. Check it out. Now. Do it.

Last time we talked about quitting. Successful people quit all the time. They quit bad relationships, toxic partnerships, dumb ideas or projects that fail to bear any fruit. They step back, assess and then change direction.

What do you want? How badly do you want it? What are you willing to sacrifice? These are the questions we must ask not once, but daily. There is no success without the GRIND.

Or perhaps, the G.R.I.N.D.


Every day we have something to give that will keep propelling us forward. I love, love, love the movie Rocky. This is among my favorite quotes:

The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You…

Death by Minions: Buster’s Tragedy

I’m doing something a little different today. Something out of the norm. My kiddos are off school for rodeo break (only us Tucsonans know what that is – Google it if you want) and I thought it would be fun to partake in a contest. A friend of mine entered The Anual Contest of Whatever over at The Evil Squirrel’s Nest. And I decided to give it a try. Basically, you must make Buster, one of ES’s cartoon characters die. And I employed the help of my girl spawn (8 yrs old) for set design and photography, and boy spawn (5 yrs old) for story writing. Here’s what they came up with.

Death by Minions: Buster’s Tragedy


Buster the possum was eating leaves and didn’t notice the minions were coming. They tied him to the train track, smashed his arms and legs, and killed him dead. Then they throwed him in the garbage. The minions left but the possum came back to life. He ran away to his little hole for safety. Then he ate some food and he lived happy.
The end.


So that’s it. Haha. I love how my 5 year old couldn’t bear the loss of Buster and brought him back to life. Too sweet. I also love how Buster is seemingly flipping us off in the afterlife. No shame in that possum’s game.


Enter a caption

There you have it: our entry in the third annual contest of whatever. I hope you enjoyed this as much as me and my kiddos did. There’s still time to enter, but the contest ends tomorrow morning. Go here for the rules.
