If I had a dollar every time someone told me they were going to write a book…
Books are easy to start and oh so difficult to finish. It could be due to the fact that they are the kind of project that requires serious focus. I have never been able to write a book while playing with my boys or cooking dinner. It could be that books require us to be fully committed. I didn’t finish my book by picking it up and putting it down. I had to write every day until it was done. It could also be that books require a financial investment. I hired an editor from the time I started to keep me accountable and on track. It’s pretty normal to put one to two thousand into a book before you ever sell one copy. While I’m sure these things are part of why there are half written books on so many desktops, they aren’t the full story.
You don’t believe your book matters.
This belief is what keeps you from setting aside time to work daily, staying focused, and investing the money. You are unsure if anyone will care at the end. Will anyone buy it, read it, or be different as a result of reading my book? These are the questions that haunt you. So you end up finding something shiny to distract you. You craft a good excuse as to why it didn’t happen.
You know I don’t like excuses and I don’t buy into your stories.
I know you still want to write a book. I know you need accountability and a cheerleader. And maybe most importantly you need someone who’s done it before, showing you the way. In this live I talk about how I wrote my latest book 7 Days To Income Stability and how I wrote two books in the last nine months. Click here to listen in.
My biggest problem with half written books…
They don’t make you any money. They don’t bring you more opportunities. They don’t change your life or anyone else’s. Click here to listen.
