As humans, we’re predisposed to underestimate how long it takes to do something, or how hard it is. Make that human an author, and the degree to which your expectations tend to be out of alignment with reality grows exponentially.
In this talk, we’ll explore why the right author mindset is your #1 key to having an enjoyable author experience and how getting your brain on straight can make or break the success of your book. You’ll get the skinny on some of the biggest misconceptions about what it takes to write and publish successfully and advice on how to shift into a “success mindset” that will help you achieve all of your dreams and goals.
1. Realistic expectations are critical for avoiding disappointment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be hopeful or aim high.
2. Pop culture and social media give us skewed ideas of what’s normal and what’s possible—real numbers and info will help counter what you think you know about successfully writing and publishing a book.
3. Understanding how to recognize common author mindset problems is key to reframing and shifting into a success mindset that lifts you up instead of keeping you down.
