As you already know by now, each week I drop a nugget that will either help or encourage on the path to living your best life in all areas of your life and this post will be more of the same.
Last week I decided it was time to do another promotion for my book and for me it makes me a little fearful and intimidated. I had actually been avoiding it all week long but it seemed like Friday was the day to bite the bullet and go for it. So, there I went sending out text messages and messengers reminders. To those who didn't respond, it was ok no problem.
Initially in my mind I thought I would be bothering and annoying people by promoting my book but to my surprise there was one response that really blessed me, she stated, "thanks for the reminder", I never thought anyone would consider my promo a reminder but it just showed me that my perception needed to be adjusted. As a result of my decision to move full speed ahead and pull back I was able to sell some books and received some promises to purchase some books the following week.
You have to know when to pull back and when to move head and your decisions can't be based on people's opinion, fears, and nos. It must only be done through discernment. I am blessed because I didn't give into my fears.
I can't state it enough how much hidden value each of us carry. My experience was very overwhelming this week. After a couple of weeks after what I considered a pretty successful book launch. One after the other, people have continue to come up to me asking questions about my experience of writing my first book and how I might be able to support them in their endeavors with my over all experience. I feel like I was the strike of match that has started a fire within other authors to get started and finish. I had no idea. But what I did know was that we have affect a certain group of people around us, consciously and subconsciously.
