Before you begin, decide on four things:
First: Decide that you want to become an author who will be ranked in the top 20% of your genre.
Second: Decide that you will invest at least 3% of your income each month into your marketing plan and improving as an author.
Third: Decide that you will read at least 9 minutes a day. You will read books that are in the same genre you write, along with business books of all types, biographies of famous business people, and inspirational/spiritual books.
Fourth: Decide that you will be responsible for your success and not become dependent on others, nor will you blame others when things go wrong, even if it’s not your fault. You will make the responsible choice to control your emotions and move forward productively, using humbling moments to find new opportunities.
Please go over those four items again and continue reading them until you are convinced that you will stick to those decisions.
You already have the inspiration and the imagination, you just need the motivation every day, every hour, especially when it appears that all hope is lost; that’s when you should already have it in your brain that you will be responsible to keep pushing forward.
“You are the same today as you’ll be in five years except for two things: the books you read and the people you meet.” ~ Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
