Are you, like many others, procrastinating with finishing – or even starting to write your book? With work, family, school, and nurturing relationships, who has time to sit down and write a book? Well, the answer is, you do. And I can show you how.
So, what do you do when procrastination (also known as fear) shows up?
What happens when it is time for you to work on your book and life shows up? The kids need you to drive them to soccer practice, you are tired, busy with work or the scariest of all, you are not in the mood to work on your book? Now what?
Not being in the mood is simply an emotion. Coming up with an excuse is simply fear. We’re not talking about time; we’re talking about your attitude. What’s going on in your head? What inner game are you playing? What meaning have you attached to writing? Are you telling yourself a story? What are you saying to yourself?
I have another question for you. Be honest. In this same “not in the mood” frame of mind, would you be willing to walk one mile to a location where you would receive $10,000 in cash? If you perked up and said Yes! but at the thought of working on your book your shoulders sagged, then you need a little preparation.
This is your future. You don’t want to miss it! No excuses! So, what are you going to do when fear shows up? What are you going to do when you are “not in the mood”? Come up with an excuse? Be a “no show” for your writing appointment?
When fear comes up, sometimes we start asking ourselves dumb questions. What if I write something stupid? What if nobody likes it? What if it doesn’t sell? You know what? Forget about that. Don’t worry about getting it perfect. The first step is getting it out of your head and onto the paper – there will be plenty of time to edit later. That’s what professional editors are for and love to do!
When fear, anxiety, stress, nervousness – the enemies of creativity, vision, imagination and resourcefulness – show up: Change what’s going on in your head, change how your body feels, change your environment.
