7 Step For Authors To Break Through


The new year is upon us. Out with the old, in with the new. It’s time to make some long-needed changes in order for you to get you what you’ve been on the hunt for. So, what exactly will change?

1.         Your Thinking

Yourself. Stop saying “should” or “need to.” Just do what must be done. Forget the past, set goals for the future, but live in the present and execute daily, in mind and body, whatever needs to be done.  


2.                  Your Network

You are only as good as who you know. Get to know more people. Everyone has value. Even better, pursue connections with those who could be helpful to you in achieving your goals. Whether online, in person, by phone, or by mail -- connect! 


3.                  Your Resources

Be willing to invest more time, money, and mindshare into your writing career. Outsource to others what you can’t or won’t do/ Grow your writing business now!


4.                  Your Tolerance For Risk

You will need to take risks, experiment, and be willing to sacrifice one thing for another. There’s no playing it safe if you want to advance far and fast. 


5.                  Your Schedule 

Pretty simple solution here -- alter how you spend your time. We each get 168 hours a week. How will you budget your time to maximize efficiency and success? Put everything up for discussion. What will free-up your time to do what you know needs to get done? 


6.                  Your Habits

Change what you do, how you do it, and how much you do it. If you spend 20 minutes a day on marketing, push it to 30. If you blog twice a month, shift to weekly. Be disciplined, determined, and deliberate in your efforts. 


7.                  Your Skills

If you learn more and acquire new skills or brush up on old ones, you can accomplish more and do things that you don’t have to pay others to do. Lifetime learning is what we all must do and learning how to write, edit, market, and promote better is your task for life. 

May this year bring you joy, love, peace, health, and happiness. And may it be the year to jumpstart your writing career in a way that you revolutionize what you do and accomplish.
