People have various quick answers to this: They have to, they want to, they need to; they desire fame and fortune. How long have you been thinking about writing your book? Are you any closer now, than you were a year ago? Do you have any reason to believe you’ll be any closer a year from now, or 10 years from now? Why? What are you letting get in your way?
Have you ever read a book that changed your life? Have you ever read a book that made you ask new questions or set you off in a different direction? Have you ever read a book that had a real impact on your life? That’s the book I want you to write. That’s the effect I want you to have on others.
But it won’t happen unless you begin. It won’t happen if you put it off for another week, or another month, or another year. It starts right now. You already know you have the reasons to write a book. You know what it will mean to you, and those around you. Can you really think of anything that will have a more important long-term affect on your life? Every time I ask a first-time author what they would do differently, they ALWAYS tell me they wished they’d written their book sooner. It made that big of a difference to them.
Seize the day and start now!
