Six reasons why your content (e.g. book, blog, online course) is not completed

Six reasons why your content (e.g. book, blog, online course) is not completed

From my experience as a coach, the following have been shown to hinder many from completing their manuscripts and getting their book published. Perhaps you can identify with one or more? If so, do something about it.

Reason 1: You have no real goals you are working towards

Solution: Set a goal e.g. to create content for an hour a day, complete your first draft in the next six months. Better still, set a date for your product or service launch or link it to a milestone event such as a milestone birthday, business launch, a key speaking engagement, etc. I have done all of these with my clients and it works a treat!

Reason 2: You lack the impetus to keep forging ahead

Solution: Connect with other like-minded people. Don’t try to do it alone. Iron sharpens iron! Connect with other writers, join a group, etc.

Reason 3: You feel demotivated

Solution: Remind yourself of your goals, dreams, and purpose with regards to the content you are trying to create. Think about those who lose out when you fail to write (yourself and others). Also, consider if there are external factors causing this (e.g. stress, pressures at work, problematic relationships, etc.).

Reason 4: You have been bitten by the procrastination bug

Solution: Just get on with it. And if you keep dragging your feet, maybe you need to ask yourself if this project is really for you and if it is for this season of your life.

Reason 5: You lack self-discipline

Solution: Without self-discipline, the fact is you will never finish any project. It’s like saying you want to run a marathon and you never train. How far do you think you will get? I suspect not far. So get going. Start small. And set realistic goals. Forget about spending hours a day. Start with something manageable like 20 minutes.

Reason 6: You lack adequate support or know-how

Solution: Get the support, skills or know-how you need. Find experts, mentors and coaches who can support you.

NB: Watch out for my webinars and courses coming soon.

Are You A Female Hybrid?

Are You A Female Hybrid?

On our journeys in life, we at times experience challenges and/or situations that may result in hurt, pain, disappointment, grief, and separation. As a result, you may find yourself emotionally battered, bruised and wounded. Coupled with the ‘stuff’ you may have been carrying from your yesteryears, it is possible you find yourself living as a mere shadow of the woman you once were. I call this woman a ‘female hybrid’.

Have you ever started a project, dream or goal and but quit because of your fears? Maybe you had an idea but never got it off the ground because you thought it might not work out?

Three Myths That Can Sabotage Your Potential For Success

Three Myths That Can Sabotage Your Potential For Success

In recent years, I have been looking into the emotional challenges women face and how this affects our ability to succeed. I discovered the fact that a number of us embraced certain myths, which in the long term could have a negative impact on our emotional well-being. And when care is not taken to redress this, our potential to succeed could be dramatically affected. Below are the top three myths I have come across: (more…)

Take Charge Of Your Mind

Take Charge Of Your Mind

Does it sometimes feel like your mind is calling the shots of your life? If so, take charge! Remember your attitudes, beliefs, and thoughts drive your behaviours. So if you have been ‘acting up’ of late, you may want to reflect on what you allow into your mind and/or what you have permitted to settle in it. Next, give your mind a Detox. I practice this through praying, reading scripture and other ‘wholesome’ food along with other activities to nurture and develop my mind. Practice this regularly and you WILL see a change.
