The Power of Mindset: The Secret Ingredient to Becoming a Commercially Successful Writer

Blog 2

oday, I’d like to highlight the distinction between an aspiring author, who perceives writing as a hobby, and a commercially successful writer who has transformed writing into a sustainable source of income.

Intriguingly, the primary factor that sets these two apart is the mindset.

👉 Our thoughts spark our emotions.
👉 Our emotions fuel our motivation.
👉 Our motivation catalyzes our actions.
👉 Our actions shape our experiences.
👉 Our experiences form the bedrock of our beliefs.
👉 Our beliefs sculpt our thoughts. 👆

Thus, the cycle perpetuates. 🔄

As a result, modifying our thoughts 🧠 and beliefs can bring about a ripple effect, altering our emotions, motivations, actions, and consequently, our outcomes.

💫 It sounds almost magical, doesn’t it?

Let’s delve into the thought processes of a successful author, and understand how this distinct mindset influences their actions and results.

1️⃣ “Writing and selling books is my business. This is how I plan to generate income.”

💥 This solitary thought can revolutionize your perspective. It’s a shift from pondering “How can I find readers for my book?” to strategically planning “How can I sell 10,000 copies of my e-book?” The difference in approach is significant, isn’t it?

2️⃣ “I won’t quit or pull back. What lies behind is a mundane 9-to-5 job, while ahead are enchanting worlds, avid readers, prosperity, and freedom. Being a writer means being the architect of my own universes.”

💥 A clearly visualized dream is a game-changer. It provides a purpose for your efforts and a glimpse into your future.

3️⃣ “I don’t know everything. If I did, I would have already become a successful author. This signifies that I need to absorb new knowledge, make different decisions, and try novel approaches to achieve different results.”

💥 Humility and curiosity are the gateways to learning and expanding your horizons. They provide a roadmap for your journey and the motivation to embark on it.

4️⃣ “This is my business, and I alone am responsible for its promotion and marketing. All responsibility and results rest with me, affording me complete freedom of action.”

💥 Now, there’s no one to blame for any shortcomings – neither the readers nor the publishers. There’s no need to wait or depend on anyone. You can carve your own path and venture forward.

5️⃣ “My mistakes are my treasures. They attest to the path I’ve traversed. Each rejection brings me one step closer to my goal. If I know that the outcome is attainable and I know the way to achieve it, then my victory is inevitable.”

💥 Now, nothing can hold you back. You’ve developed resilience against failure, and perceive criticism and mistakes as valuable lessons that save time and resources.
