today is the day! GIVE everything: A Quote Book For Dreamers is now available!
in competition with your facebook news feed!
the other day i mentioned to my brother the release of my new book. a sure thing for my brother to buy my book, right? nope. he told me he doesn’t have much bandwidth. my reply was, “oh no, it’s not a digital book.” then he explained what he meant, he doesn’t have much space in his head for extra stuff like my book!
i assured my brother that the book wasn’t dense, very easy to get through like my other two books. but there i was…selling my book to my very own brother! i finally told him that he can buy it and give it away to someone. in other words, don’t have to read it just buy it! :)
the reason why my brother isn’t interested in buying my book is the same reason why a lot of people won’t buy my book (or your book!)…information overload! another book? something else you want me to read? don’t i read enough when i scroll through my facebook news feed every hour? i’m already overloaded with information, no thank you.
so on the day of the official release of my book GIVE everything (thanks alice for buying it already!) i think about the tons of writers and bloggers out in the world producing information and content and then how there is little ol’ me with my little blog and books. i am completely grateful to anyone who buys my book!
the conversation with my brother reinforced the importance of never taking for granted someone buying into and supporting whatever it is that you do. we live in a choice based world, people have options! you are not the only fish in the sea. so if you are one of many how do you be successful and survive?
how to be heard in a loud world!
1. be your best
the competition is crazy fierce, and the only thing you can control in the competition is your performance. sharpen your skills, work harder, be consistent. your work will separate you from the crowd. and when people get the opportunity to choose you will be a front runner and they will hopefully choose you.
2. love what you do
love what you do because not everyone is going to love it and want it. then what? it’s okay, because the only imperative thing is that you love doing whatever it is that you do. the love that you have for your work will be the thing that propels you to your next project, time after time. and maybe next time they will love it and want it.
my heart will overflow with gratitude
while some of you all have your reasons like my brother why you are not really interested in my book i believe many of you guys will actually buy GIVE everything! and that my dear friends will make my heart overflow with gratitude. and i hope you will not only buy it but read it. there is something in the book for you if you need encouragement and focus for your dreams. right now i am all about dreams and making them happen!
for everyone who buys any of my books within the next month i will personally send you a handwritten thank you note if you contact me with your information.
GIVE everything (ISBN: 0615803644) is available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com today!
to celebrate the release of my new book my first book 30 things will be FREE on the kindle all this week until the 18th! grab it. tweet it. read it. thanks!
