Excitement and Fear
I have some very exciting news, but it's also a little scary. First the exciting news is that I just got my first book published and ready for purchase!!! It is available on amazon. Totally amazing right? It is super exciting and I am feeling so thrilled about it, but there are still some fears that come up with it.
What if I don't sell many of my books?
What if people don't like it? Or worse, what if the people who really need it don't get access to it, because they don't know it exists?
These questions and so many more often come to mind now that the book is out and available to the world. I am very excited to have it ready and out there, but I worry that it wont get out to all the people that could really benefit from it.
I have done some promotional and marketing things to help get the word out there, but you never know how much that will actually do for your book. It's hard to sit back and wait sometimes to see what is going to happen, but there are times in life where that is the only thing you can do, once you have done the rest.
I am not saying you need to sit back and wait for your dreams to come true without doing anything, no not at all, I am saying that once you do all the work, once you take all the action steps, then you have to sit back and wait, see where it will take you, and unfortunately you wont know where that will be until you actually get there. That can be scary sometimes, because it is so uncertain, one could let it get the better of them and create a world of anxiety, but I wont let that happen to me and I don't want you to do that to yourself either.
We all have hopes and dreams, and if we know we have taken action towards those dreams, and keep taking one step at a time, something is sure to come of it, what that THING is I don't know, and wont know until it happens, and that come with anything in life. Everyone's THING is different too. What happens with my book and all my hard work will look different than what happens to you and your hard work, your actions steps, and your particular passions. And know that it is totally ok. That is just the way the world works, and it is a beautiful thing.
So basically I am writing this post today to let you know that it's ok to be scared, do the work and take the action steps anyway, it's ok to be uncertain and not know for sure where it will take you, allow yourself to take a leap of faith and do it anyway. You wont know what you are capable of and how far you will be able to go unless you just do it and see..
Blessings to you all, and I wish you the best on your own personal journeys, I want you to take the first step, whatever it may be and take the steps that are required of you after that, keep moving forward no matter what, even if you are scared and unsure, be brave and see where this beautiful life will take you. I am excited and a little scared myself, but I am sure looking forward to seeing where I end up in the end.
How are you doing with following your dreams and living your passions?
