It’s morning time. The summer is settling down, and fall is about to wake up. You have either been going hard or not at all. Not to worry. I. Get. It.
You got the quote back from the printer, and printing your book is going to cost you more than you have. In fact, it’s going to cost so much, you’re certain you cannot afford it. What with your paycheck you’re barely making ends meat…and then you have to buy your book to sell it!?
Take a deep breath.
I know the cost is hectic. I know you feel like you can’t do it now, and you can barely foresee being able to do it ever. It is for this reason that I write to you today.
It’s in this moment that you have all of the power. I have no interest in advice. It is usually contrite and, when given by me, egotistical; it is rarely helpful.
Here, I want to share with you that I have had these feelings myself. I have been reminded that they are an investment, that all I need to do is save and that I have to be patient. All of this is wise and true.
But, I want to share with you that none of that did anything for me until I was able to see it all, differently.
This may sound silly, but I really didn’t think that I could be successful. I mean, most of me allowed the wild thoughts of the world seeing my work, but when it really came down to it, I didn’t believe that I could be renown, heard, looked forward to.
So, where did it shift? It shifted somewhere in my heart. I realized, somewhere deep inside of me, that I live in an abundant universe, that even though in one moment, I believed that I didn’t have the funds to print my book, to be something more than I was, I could in the next.
This shift didn’t just magically appear, though. I had support. I asked for support. Not financial support, but support from people who have done it or something like it, before.
It was that simple-or complex, however you see it.
Really, author, I want to share with you that I know the feeling. Build yourself a support who is more interested in being vulnerable and sharing their life than passing on advice.
If you don’t know anyone like that, I’m here…with another book
