It’s no secret that when we succeed on Medium, just like anywhere else in life, there is a long list of people who helped motivate us and add to our success. But all too often, we fail to show appreciation to those individuals.

The other thing I won’t bother telling you about, is how I was able to publish OVER 200 stories since joining the site this past May.
I already wrote about that also; a week ago , when the number was only at 173 stories. You can read all about it later in: My Secret to How I Published 173 Stories in Less than 3 Months, because like I said, that’s not what THIS story is about.
The story you’re reading now, is all about giving thanks, and letting you know exactly why.
It’s one of those stories where FIRST, I say thank you to everyone for bothering to stop and read this story right now. Whether or not later on you decide to clap…
