Publishing My Books Was The BEST Self Development I Have Ever Done
It demanded me to be clear about my message. It demanded that I stand in my power and believe in myself. It demanded that I bypass my fears and limitations. It demanded me to produce something without knowing it's outcome.
In other words, writing made me dive deep into ME and I grew stronger with every word.
There's no halfway book for me.
I will be honest, I have friends who have published books that were just production line books - like a fancy brochure pumped out in 30 days or less with a cover slapped on it and voila! Done.
It's just not how I choose to do things.
Each book I've written has a piece of me in it. They are never the book to push my business - they are meant to serve and inspire and help change the world one reader at a time.
So I'm including this little piece from Gabby Bernstein here for you. She just released her latest book, "The Universe Has Your Back" and she talks about what writing the book did for her as the author.
"I have a personal story to share with you.
Today is the launch of my new book, The Universe Has Your Back. Writing a book can be a very vulnerable process. This was the case for me.
I wrote this book in 2015 when I was going through the toughest time of my life.
Day after day I woke up feeling helpless, scared and blocked. What saddened me most was that my spiritual connection felt weak.
But I couldn’t wallow in my suffering. I had a book deal and a deadline. I had to show up.
I woke up each morning and committed to writing 1,000 words.
I dove deep for this book. I shared my authentic stories, struggles and miracles. I poured my truth onto the page.
Writing this book healed me.
Each lesson I teach in the book, I applied in my own life. Each meditation I mastered. Through the process of writing this book I transformed my fear into faith.
And now I offer you an invitation to do the same.
It’s time to get real. It’s time to get honest. It’s time to be happy and free.
My commitment with this book is to wake up as many people as possible to their connection to faith and joy.
In that connection, we can be guided to our true purpose: to be love and spread love.
These words can no longer be cute buzz phrases that we post on social media and screen-print on tote bags. These words must be our mission. The happiness, safety and security we long for lies in our commitment to love.
We’re not playing small here. Transforming fear into faith is major. (It’s everything.) We need this now more than ever — and I cannot wait for you to get the book in your hands.
Start your journey today and know The Universe Has Your Back.
This is what writing is all about for me... it's a journey into yourself.
So make a choice for YOU.
You can write any book.
Or you can bleed your soul onto the pages and emerge new.
