In nearly 4 years of owning my business, I have had the privilege of seeing many people realize their dreams of becoming a published author.
Sadly, I’ve seen many more give up on that dream – most of them before even giving themselves a chance to TRY.
You see, taking on a task such as writing a book can seem incredibly overwhelming. The time commitment, the emotions to process, fear of the unknown in the process… But you know what? If you take a breath and just go step-by-step, trusting the process, then there is literally NO reason you cannot make it happen for yourself.
Yes, I’m a coach that helps people through the process of realizing this dream of becoming a published author, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do this without a coach.
In fact, if you’ll just get started you will see that you’re much better at this writing gig than you originally thought.
If you really do not want to write your story, the excuses to put it off are plentiful! I’ve heard them all:
- I’m not a writer
- I don’t have the time
- I don’t have the money
- I’m dyslexic
- I’m too young/old
- No one will want to read it
- I don’t know how to start
- How will I publish it
The list goes on and on.
What if I told you that one of my top clients is dyslexic and has written an entire book with my guidance? What if I told you that all you need is 30 minutes to an hour each day and that I can provide you with a time-blocking calendar to help you find the time? What if I told you that it literally does not have to cost you a dime? What if I told you that one of my favorite clients was 10 and another was in his 70s? What if I told you that it doesn’t matter who reads it, so long as your dream is realized – and that with faith and little marketing, plenty of people will read it? What if I could show you how to start? What if you stop worrying about what lies ahead and just focus on what you can do RIGHT NOW?
For the record, EVERYONE is a writer. The problem is you are comparing yourself to others and convincing yourself that you don’t add up. What if you’d never read a book before and had no one to compare yourself to?
It’s a new year. It’s time to realize your dreams and stop making excuses as to why you cannot. Stop letting others tell you why not. You’ve heard it before: those who say you can’t only say that because they won’t.
Need help? Let me know. I have several ways to help you.
It’s time. Make your dreams come true!
