Why You Should Write a Book & Become a Published Author
You have a meaningful idea or message that you want to share with the world, but you don’t know where to start. Put your pen to paper, and write a book.
I know it sounds crazy, but you don’t have to be a distinguished author to write a book. You just have to be passionate about something.
I’ve written and published over 70 books in as many as 42 languages and sold over 10 million copies over the years.
This is starting from nothing, and not knowing what I was doing at all.
There are several reasons why I decided to start writing. The biggest reason was to spread my message about subjects that I felt very passionate about.
Why You Should Write a Book
Today I want to talk to you about why you should write a book, and about the many benefits that come from being a published author.
Just like riding a bicycle, writing a book is a skill that you can master with focused practice and repetition. Before I started writing books, I never considered myself to be a writer. I didn’t graduate high school and I failed high school English.
If I can do it, you can too.
I’ve created several resources and courses that will teach you how to write a book. Today I want to talk about WHY writing a book and becoming a published author will change your life.
Here are 3 great things a book will do for you:
1) You’ll Gain Credibility FAST
From a business perspective, writing a book is the fastest way to gain credibility. You not only establish yourself as an expert in your field but build a professional reputation. It is also used as a promotional item and marketing tool for your business.
Think about it…
What sort of impression do you get when you meet someone who has become a published author?
Without even knowing the author, you might assume that if they were able to write an entire book and get it published, they must be an expert.
2) You Can Express Your Creativity While Sharing Your Message
Another reason you should write a book is because it provides an opportunity for you to write something on a subject you are passionate about. Once published you will have it for the rest of your life.
You can express your creativity while sharing your message with others.
One of the Universal Laws of Success is the “Law of Service” and it says: “Your rewards in life will be in direct proportion to the value of your service to others.”
3) You’ll Make a Valuable Contribution to Your World
The more you work, study, and develop your ability to contribute to the lives and well-being of others, the better your life will be in all areas.
Chances are if you are passionate about a certain subject, other people are too, you just don’t know how to start a book. By writing a book about that subject, you can help others in their own lives. In turn, you can achieve a more fulfilled life for yourself.
That is why I urge you to write a book. Not only will you educate others, but you will learn something about yourself. Your message matters, and it will live on forever.
Have I convinced you? I’ve created a FREE quiz that you can take to discover if a book can truly help you, your business, your family, and yourself.
