No matter where you are in your booklet adventure, you will, at some point, face a mountain that seems insurmountable. It might happen as you stand at the very beginning of your adventure, debating whether or not writing a booklet will get you to your goals. You might see the entire process of writing and producing booklets as being difficult. Or, it might happen later, when you’re considering the possibility of expanding your product line, or when you’re in the midst of negotiations for a large order. But, no mountain is impossible to conquer when you know the secret that all the big guys know – the secret to overcoming any mountain that lies between you and your goals.
What’s Holding You Back?
How many times have you hit the snooze button on the alarm to avoid getting out of bed and facing the day? When we know something difficult lies before us, our natural tendency is to run away. We want to avoid the unpleasantness of having to deal with difficulty. But, the sooner we deal with it the sooner we can move on to bigger and better things.
Having a booklet on the market that is selling and doing well is a bigger and better thing, but it doesn’t come without a little difficulty in the beginning. Your own thought process might make it seem difficult to get that booklet finished. You might think that you don’t have the time, that you don’t know what to write about, or that you don’t know how to produce a booklet, put it on the market, and make money from it. You might see any one of these things as an insurmountable task that is difficult, and this may cause you to avoid doing them, even though you would like to. What is holding you back? Is it really that the task before you is difficult? Or is it your own thinking about that task?
Avoidance Only Makes It Worse
Avoidance is NOT the answer. Avoidance gets you nowhere. Any problem we avoid simply has the opportunity to become an even bigger problem. If you avoid creating that first booklet, your current circumstances won’t change. Everything will remain the same – for a little while. But, how long will it be before things start getting worse? This may happen in a financial sense, but it could also happen in an emotional sense.
You have something you want to share with the world, and not sharing it will only frustrate you. You have this opportunity to write a booklet, share something good, and make as much money as you care to from it. But, if you pass this up, your mind will nag at you. How much emotional pressure can you stand before you finally begin to take it out on those around you? After a while you may not be a very fun person to be around.
This is just one example. You can apply it to any situation – such as putting off the next step of your booklet adventure – which is where we’re going next!
The Secret That The Big Guys Know And You Don’t
By now, you may be thinking that the answer is pretty obvious. Don’t avoid the problem, just go and tackle it head on -right? Well, not exactly.
Sometimes a problem isn’t that easy to solve. Sometimes, you don’t know exactly how things are going to end up. And, that’s ok. You don’t need to know everything in advance in order to solve the problem. You just need to know the next step and do it. And that’s the secret!
If you know everything that needs to be done to conquer that mountain before you, that’s great! You can break it down into bite-sized steps and do them one at a time. You don’t have to do everything at once. You only need to do the next step.
But, what if you don’t know everything that needs to be done? What if you’re just at the begining of your booklet adventure and it all sounds great, but you have absolutely no idea how to go about creating a booklet publishing business? And furthermore, what if you have no clue how this might all end up or whether it will be worth your time to try it?
Simple! Don’t get too caught up in your own thinking. Just consider the step that is right in front of you at this moment, and do what’s necessary to complete that step. Then, the next step will present itself and you can do what you need to in order to complete that step, and so on.
You don’t have to have all the answers. Nobody does. You just need to know what your next step is and take that step. Once you do, the rest will follow. Now you know what the big guys know. Stop hitting that snooze button! Stop avoiding what you think is difficult, and just take that next step! You’ll be glad you did!
