Releasing Perfectionism-FINAL

>> Ah! Perfectionism. Fear and perfectionism seem to go hand in hand. We tend to overthink and overcomplicate almost everything, especially when writing a book because for most of you, this is your first time doing it. And trust me, a lot of issues are going to come up. Fear may start to creep in, and you may find yourself thinking, "Who should listen to me? Is my writing even good enough? There are already a million books out there on this topic. What makes mine so special?" And with fear, then comes perfectionism. You will stay on a page critiquing and refining for an entire week. You might find yourself self-sabotaging and skipping modules. I have totally been there. And I see this happen with students time and time again. So let's get clear early on so that you can release perfectionism and not let fear get you down anymore. First, think simple. The benefits of self-publishing your book is that you are in control. It doesn't need to be a grand slam, home run right off the bat, you can release a small and simple book targeted to your market. From there, you can get feedback and refine later on. Most successful authors have done this. Think simple and know that you can refine later on. Secondly, remember that you are unique. There is no one like you. While there may be a similar book or concept on the market, that person is not you. You bring your experiences, your stories, your ideas, and your heart to the project. You are actually doing a disservice by not sharing your book and your message with the world. The book can carry on and impact the lives of thousands for years and years to come. And last but not least, let it flow. When it comes to writing and editing, I notice many authors get stuck on the content, trying to constantly perfect everything. As Ernest Hemingway said, "The first draft of everything is shit." But guess what, you get it done, and you get it onto paper. The best part of writing is there's no right or wrong. So practice free writing and let the words come out. If you find yourself trying to edit, just start another thought and move on.
