I would like to show you the difference between an aspiring author, for whom writing is still only a hobby, and a commercially successful writer, for whom writing is a source of income.
Surprisingly, the main difference is the mindset.
👉 Our thoughts generate our emotions
👉 Our emotions trigger our motivation
👉 Our motivation gives us the opportunity to act
👉 Our actions create an experience
👉 Our experiences form the basis of our beliefs
👉 Our beliefs shape our thoughts 👆
… the cycle is complete. 🔄
So, if we change our thoughts 🧠 and what we believe in, then our emotions, motivations, actions, and results will change too.
💫 Sounds like magic, doesn’t it?
In the next post, we will look at how a successful author thinks, and how these thoughts help him act differently and get different results.
Let’s see how an author who has commercial success ahead of him thinks and how these thoughts differ from an amateur.
1️⃣ Writing and selling books is my business. This is what I plan to do to earn money.
💥 This idea alone is enough to change the way you look at the situation.
It’s one thing when you think “How can I find those who will read my book?”
And another way to think of this is: “I need to sell 10,000 copies of my e-book. How will I do it?”
Do you agree that there is a major difference in approach?
2️⃣ I will not quit and will not pull back. Because behind is only work from 9 to 5 and yearning. Ahead are beautiful worlds, enthusiastic readers, prosperity and freedom. And yet, being a writer means being the creator of your own universes.
💥 A visualized dream changes everything. You know why you work so hard and what lies ahead of you.
3️⃣ I don’t know much. If I knew everything, then I would have done everything a long time ago and would already have become a successful author. This means that I need new knowledge to make different decisions and do something new to get a different result.
💥 Modesty and curiosity are key factors in embracing and opening new horizons. You have a vision of the path and motivation to follow it.
4️⃣ This is my business, and only I am interested in promotion and marketing. All responsibility lies with me, and all results belong to me as well. At the same time, I have complete freedom of action.
💥 Now no one is to blame for anything: neither the readers nor the publishers. You do not need to wait for anyone nor rely on anyone. Now, you can just choose your path and go for it.
5️⃣ My mistakes are my treasures. This is proof of the path I have already been on. Any rejection only brings me closer to my goal. If I know that the result is possible, and I know how to do it, then my victory is inevitable.
💥 Now, it’s almost impossible to stop you. You are resilient to failure and perceive criticism and mistakes as gifts that save you time and money.
Now questions for you, my dear author:
