Most of you feel compelled to get your message out there. Your book is a way you can help more people, and there comes a point that you can’t hold back any longer. You do the hard work of unleashing your inner author for the chance to teach, to inspire, to encourage someone; to etch your stories on your readers’ hearts like a love letter. To do that, you've gotta face your fears and show the real you.
Here are a couple of success stories to inspire you:
Impact Founder is Kristin Darga’s love letter to business founders. She was driven to share the stories of other founders to build a community of support.
“Self-doubt is part of life and sometimes entrepreneurs face the issue alone and lose their perspective. As the leader of a movement to build authentic entrepreneurship – to empower entrepreneurs to keep making change in the world and to not give up – I know it is important to share authentically.”
In The Journey Begins with 1,000 Miles, cyclist and author John Alexander shares the story of his journey with Parkinson’s disease.
“I’ve created a motto that keeps me focused on living well with Parkinson’s. It is a reminder that everything will be all right, that we should be constantly grateful. And that we should continue to move forward one pedal stroke at a time. I hope you find it useful in your own journey forward: Keep calm, hug often, and pedal on.”
Both authors faced their fears and kept going, knowing their books would inspire their readers when they need it most.
And their readers love them back with emotional reviews about how their books have made a huge difference. Nothing inspires authors like knowing we’ve made a powerful impact.
