Over the last few years, my wife has been sending out a free weekly
motivational newsletters filled with thoughts and words of
some of which either she wrote, or me, or inspirational words from other authors.
Each one of these newsletters also contains a series of wisdom quotes and
that compliment the main message of the newsletter. Our hope in sending this out
is that we make a positive difference in people's daily lives. Sometimes reading the
words of others can influence and encourage us.
Does It Make A Difference?
And, over the years, from time to time, we often wonder whether these
newsletters are used, or appreciated or for that matter even read. But
then once and awhile, we receive an email from one of our readers telling
how much the newsletter means to them, and how much it has helped them
with a challenging situation.
A Small Thanks Means A Lot
I suppose, like everyone else, we like to be
appreciated for our efforts even if it is only a once and awhile thing. The
thank you emails serve to encourage us to keep publishing our newsletter
and to provide words of wisdom to all our readers around the world. Every time
we receive a note from one of our readers telling us how the
message in our newsletter or from our site has encouraged them it truly inspires
us to keep on working at it.
And, there are times when we face challenges in our own
life and just doing the research or reading a specific quote reminds us and
changes our thinking on the situation.
Reaching A Greater Audeince
The fantastic breath of the Internet
with a large audience possible every week whereas just a few short years
ago the only way to effectively communicate with a large audience was
through publishing a book.
A Former Challenge Now Overcome
But, the drawback to book publishing was that
it not only had to be distributed far and wide but the individual book had to
be purchased. The real challenge for a lot of people would have depended
on whether they were aware of the book, or able to find the book, and
whether they could afford to but it.
The Internet has allowed us to be in touch with a growing audience and an
audience that does not have to buy a book or even try to find it.
