As most of you are aware, my book is available for download beginning today. This has been such an amazing experience and it’s hard to get across in writing how wonderful it feels to have accomplished this. There just aren’t enough exclamation points on the keyboard!!!!!!!
Honestly this book was a huge effort, but I published it in a relatively short period of time because I wanted to prove to myself that if I put my mind to something, I can do it. I truly believe in the message in my book and I am thrilled with the final product. I don’t think it will disappoint anyone who takes the time to read it.
But I didn’t want to spend a year writing it. As important as it can be to take the time to carefully craft your message, to examine each sentence and determine how it supports the larger picture, the ultimate goal was to produce a finished product. To me, it was more important to have something complete than something perfect. There is no guarantee that if I had spent another 2 months editing that the final product would have been any better.
I think often we get hung up on the mechanics of doing something; we believe that there is one right way or there are certain steps we need to follow. With this book I wanted to break some of the rules I used to believe. I wanted to avoid the things that have held me back from achieving any of my goals. I didn’t want to allow time for fear or self doubt to creep in.
And I did it!
My dream of becoming an author has come true! This is just one of many things I will accomplish in the years to come, but it has done something unbelievably important. It has proven I can achieve whatever goal I set for myself. I have climbed my first mountain, but it will not be my last!
Today I am having a party at my house to celebrate. You’re all invited!
What goal would you achieve if you decided today that you would do anything to accomplish it?
