“Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but nobody wants to lift no heavy-ass weights.” – Ronnie Coleman, Mr. Olympia, 8 years in a row.
Lifting weights is hard work. Physically and mentally.
You have to push yourself to limits. You have to rest to let your muscles recover. You deal with injuries. Genetics, and performance enhancers, help.
On the other hand, writing is easy.
Many people want to have written a book. They want to be published. They want the bestseller.
But nobody wants to lift a pen and start writing.
Lifting a pen is easier than lifting heavy-ass weights.
Writing is easier than ever.
You don’t have to pick up a pen. You don’t have to worry about mistakes. When you screw up you don’t have to rip the paper up and start over.
All you need to do is let your fingers dance around your computer’s keyboard. You can edit mistakes later.
Writing is fun. It’s therapeutic.
It merely requires a little bit of time each day.
Crack open your mind and let the words flow.
Really. It’s not hard.
When I wrote Friction Free Sales and Marketing I kept putting it off. It was overwhelming. But I chiseled away at it each day.
Looking back now, the process to finish wasn’t hard.
It’s never too late to write your book. It’s never too late to build your platform.
