BOOKS AND DREAMS
I admire people who chase their dreams - people that are actually doing what they have said they will do.
I was a slave to my job in the factory and I was only working for survival. I didn’t follow my path. My job gave my nothing and the direction in my life was totally wrong. But now I know better, and therefore am I now doing all these things that I want to do without asking others if it is right for me. I do what I want for myself no matter what everybody else says - my new philosophy is that nothing is impossible. It started out when I was accepted by a publisher in Norway to write a children’s book, then i got to write another children’s book, because the first one did well, then I got an idea to make a board-game that I successfully found a publisher for, then I made a new board-game with the same publisher. The ball started to roll.
“No one of you should hope or have any dreams of becoming a writer” My journalist teacher
Now, some years later I’m in the position to live the life I want to, and I’m doing all this impossible things that others said I couldn’t do. My next goal is to finish my book in english (It's already done now, and published - for sale here) - a foreign language to me, and something other people thought was impossible. Actually; In our very first day in feature-journalism our teacher told us specific that non of us should have any hope or dreams of becoming a writer, she explained that it is impossible because she had already tried that out, and because she couldn’t do it we can't either. To be honest such statements are quite ordinary in Norway, in my country people don’t want others to have success, they often get jealous. In my new book about America I write about topics like that, but many others as well; like cultural differences, economy, ambitions, the American dream, and many other things that I hope will inspire you and your life. I hope you will like it! Till then, live the life you want to have - everyone can, and don't forget to travel..cheers.
