And wrote an international bestseller.
He was fired at 40 and become a millionaire within ten years.
There's a couple of ideas here that made me sit up, straigthen my shoulders and carry on:
- He was close to my age when he got fired.
- It took him ten years (ten!) to get noticed.
- I've been writing only four years.
- Fear, betrayal, pain didn't stop him.
- Writing is the cheapest hobby ever.
“If you’re fired at 40, it’s not all about hurt and betrayal and fear. It’s about opportunity.” Lee Child
