Day (363) – 5
Posted on December 12, 2012
Well, we are getting down to the wire aren’t we?
Today I spent the day Skyping with blog followers (scuironbroncos please add me if you want to chat) about life, the book, the journey, and everything that has gone on over the past few years…and it just left me filling fulfilled. I love talking to people and hearing about where they are at in life etc, and then being a part of the plan to get them from point A to point B. And I think that is really what tonight is about. What does that line look like from where you are now to where you want to get. Is it straight…squiggly…all over the place? It’s a combination of all three. Please watch the next clip I am going to show you.
I can’t say it any better than he did. But be unrealistic, overestimate yourself…so when you fall short/if you fall short, you become what you were meant to be. Big goals. Big dreams
After 6 months of work, endless readings, editing, writing, the works…everything is all set and ready to be shipped off to be converted to an e-book. As you know the book will be coming out January 10th of this year on Amazon and iTunes, and everyone from the blog/your friends too is invited to attend a party in Palo Alto CA on February 9th. But there was one major question left. How much are you going to price this?
I’ve had some great advice, some good conversation, and a lot of time to think about this question over the past few days. And then like most things, it hit me. Henry Ford once said that you should give the people the best quality product at the best price. Well, I am going to put this out there for the world to read…and if I truly want to inspire people to live powerful and impassioned lives, I have to put it out there for a price that everyone can access it at. Because it is not about chasing the paper, it is about chasing the dream. It is about living up to what you have dreamed about and envisioned. That fires me up. Not money…although I need to make a living. But goals. Talking to people. Speaking to an audience. Writing to an audience. That is my passion. That is why I am here. Funds will come. But dreams and opportunity to capture dreams only come around once in a lifetime.
That is what I am going with. I want the book to be shared, to be picked up by everyone, and for the world to read it. Because it isn’t about being perfect, or being a superhero…it is about being honest with yourself and with others…about admitting your mistakes…about being fallible, but moving on past that towards your vision. Towards what your bones tell you. Listening to that little voice inside of you that says, “You are going to do great and it is all going to be fine.” That is what matters. Not money. Not rolling in dough. There are going to be many many more books to come after this first one. That makes me happy and that keeps me going each day.
I need your support. I promise you one thing. If you pick up this book, you will join me on a journey with your own lantern. A lantern that will shine bright inside the deepest darkest caves. I know what it is like to be there. I have been there…I go back….I visit…but I do know what it is like to come out on the other side when I never thought I would ever make it. Together, all of us. Not me telling you how. But us walking in there together. Trust. Honesty. Courage past fear.
So I only ask one thing in return. Share. Share your emotions, stories, the book, the messages with people you love and care about. Not because it creates more book sales, but because it accomplishes something that I set out to do…to create an infecting idea that covers the world in love and passion.
Thank you for being the best fans out there. I mean it.
