Could You Be an Author?
At a recent networking event, I introduced myself as a writer to a business person who immediately raised an eyebrow and paused. Then he responded, “Yeah, I’m going to write my book soon. I’ve got a great idea that could help others make money faster and have more free time.”
When I asked him more about the book, he went on for five minutes and then paused in mid-sentence. “You wouldn’t steal my idea would you?”
I assured I wouldn’t and told him that he was the best person to write his book. I asked him when he would start writing, and he said, “Next week; I just have to find the time.”
A few minutes later I spoke with Mary. She confided that she had overcome some intense traumas and had many great stories about her life. “I could help others. Think I could write a good book.”
I asked her when she would start writing, and she looked at me with a sadness in her eyes revealing she probably would not.
I talked to John a month later and asked how the writing was going. “Oh, I’m going to start next week,” he said. I haven’t heard from Mary since but wish her the best in writing her book.
Could You Be?
The difference between the author and the wanna-be author is the difference between dreaming and doing. A number of hurdles can prevent the author-to-be from starting and completing the mission. I want to help John, Mary and others like you to manifest those writing dreams.
