Power of Suggestion

Have you ever stopped to think about how powerful suggestion can be?

If we’re repeatedly exposed to a particular belief or attitude, we adopt it. It informs our behaviour and then shapes our reality. This is as true of positive messages as it is of negative ones.

Why then, do we allow ourselves to be exposed to ideas that don’t serve us? Why, for example, do we listen to people who say that it’s impossible to earn a living as a writer? We can turn that message around and say that it’s entirely possible to earn a living as a writer, and a damn good living at that!

Let’s choose to fill our minds with thoughts that help us get where we want to go.


About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.

stories for women, by women, and about women
