Dream in Superlatives

In Association with Amazon.com

by David DeFord

How high should you dream?

Rarely does one exceed his vision.

Many think in terms of “good enough” but envision their future well short of their dreams. They settle for getting by.

Seek the superlative. A superlative is an unsurpassed level of achievement. In your vision of your future, think in terms of “greatest,” “most,” “best,” and “highest.”

Did Picasso think in terms of a decent painting, or a masterpiece? Do major league baseball players strive for a winning season or a championship? Do successful authors plan well-written books or best-sellers?

The difference is vision. When Kobe Bryant shoots, he envisions the ball arcing into the basket—before he shoots it. Tiger Woods sees the ball land on the green before he swings.

As you make your plans for the coming year, I encourage you to aim high. Your vision will determine your future. Rarely does one exceed his vision.


No pessimists ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit. Helen Keller

Reach out and open the door that no one thought could be opened. Life is behind it. Kelly Ann Rothaus

Not to go out and do your best is to sacrifice the gift. Steve Prefontaine

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. Carl Sagan

Perform every act in life as though it were your last. Marcus Aurelius

Interest never sleeps nor sickens nor dies; it never goes to the hospital; it works on Sunday's and holidays; it never takes a vacation; it never visits nor travels; it takes no pleasure; it is never laid off work nor discharged from employment; it never works on reduced hours; it never has short crops nor droughts; it never pays taxes; it buys no food; it wears no clothes; it is unhoused and without home and so has no repairs, no replacements, no shingling, plumbing, painting, or whitewashing; it has neither wife, children, father, mother, nor kinfolk to watch over and care for; it has no expense of living; it has neither weddings nor births nor deaths; it has no love, no sympathy; it is as hard and soulless as a granite cliff. Once in debt, interest is your companion every minute of the day and night; you cannot shun it or slip away from it; you cannot dismiss it; it yields neither to entreaties, demands, or orders; and whenever you get in its way or cross its course or fail to meet its demands, it crushes you. J. Reuben Clark, Jr.

The well researched, excellent presented ebook is suitable for complete beginners or those slightly more advanced who have one or two articles written to date.

“I have just finished reading David Deford’s new e-book called "Ordinary People Can Self-Publish Big Sellers " and I fully endorse it – not for the reasons you might expect. As a professional website copywriter I see lots of content masquerading as learning opportunities. This one is different.
It is:
• Practical
• Understated
• Complete
First, I have read most of the usual self-help books over the past few years and didn’t find them useful. Effective self-help content has to supply more than hope; it needs to provide “how.” "Ordinary People Can Self-Publish Big Sellers" combines motivation with method.
If this 350 page e—book were printed, it would drop to the table top with the credible thump of solid reading. Its 9 sections of skill-based instructions cover all aspects of self- publishing success from creation to sales and marketing. The second reason I think you will like this e-book is the respect it shows the reader. Absent is the typical use of hyperbole found in many self-help materials. Instead of exaggerated claims, "Ordinary People Can Self-Publish Big Sellers" takes the reader step by step through the self- publishing process without the usual superlatives and promises. Check for yourself. Throughout 350 pages you will find the word “avalanche” only once and “breakthrough” just 5 times.
Here is the third, and most important reason I support "Ordinary People Can Self-Publish Big Sellers." I am not an affiliate of David’s company, but I am one of the 50 “experts” who contributed to his manual. What impressed me most was not the two articles of mine he selected for inclusion but my other articles he rejected.
He chose only articles that contributed to a coherent, structured approach to self-publishing. In "Ordinary People Can Self- Publish Big Sellers" you won’t find fluff - just a complete system of practical tools to help you self-publish with confidence.
I believe writing success is 5% muse and 95% bruise. Get a little less bruised and a lot more success with "Ordinary People Can Self-Publish Big Sellers."
Paul Matthews
