Do you believe you can create a booklet? Do you believe that people will want to buy it? If you do, you’re on your way to a rich career as a booklet author. If deep down you really don’t, it’s time to re-evaluate why you ever thought about getting into the booklet publishing business in the first place.
Why What Others Think Doesn’t Matter
It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. It only matters what you believe about your writing, your abilities and your business. Your friends, family or co-workers may trivialize your writing and your ideas. They may blatantly tell you not to quit your day job. They might even laugh when you tell them about your plans. But, it doesn’t matter. It has no bearing on what you can accomplish.
You Must Believe In Yourself
The only one in charge of whether you achieve your goals or you fail is you. And at least 95% of accomplishing anything in life, booklets included, is believing that you can. You must believe in yourself. This doesn’t mean that you have a puffed up, always positive, sunshiny day attitude. It means that you are grounded, that you are confident, and that you have a solid sense of being able to accomplish what you want to because you don’t let anything get in your way. You know that you are capable. You know that what you don’t know you can learn. And you are willing to keep going, never giving up, until you reach your goal. In short, you know what you’re made of.
Give Yourself Permission To Move Forward
Believing in yourself gives you the ability to stand tall when others laugh at your ideas, or when a problem arises. It gives you the courage to put one foot in front of the other and keep going when you have a bad day. And, it keeps you from getting too big of a head when things go right and you achieve success, because you know how you got there and you know that you’ll never know everything, and there will always be another problem just round the corner. When you believe in yourself, you give yourself permission to move forward because you know your strengths. Knowing your strengths helps you fill in the gaps for your weaknesses – you get help where you need it.
Believe in yourself, in your strengths and abilities, and know that you will win as long as you stay in the game. Now go forth and write your booklet!
To your riches!
