Tips For Writing A Book: If You're Waiting on God to Perform Another Virgin Birth You Are Guaranteed To Fail
I read countless amounts of books each year on business Marketing and Promotion. Most of what I read is great content, but it only tells the reader what to do, but never really shows you how. I’ve been learning over the past three years of what works and what doesn’t. In my book, "Success Requires Action," I will be giving you HOW-TO-STEPS that will help push you in the direction of success! It won’t be easy, and it won’t be overnight! It will require enormous amounts of energy, time, commitment, and dedication to hustling your butt off.
I’m not going to sugar coat it for you. Success isn’t easy. Success isn’t free. Success isn’t given. Success isn’t even earned. Success is made! Success requires you to work at extreme levels of intensity! You will never be successful if you don’t bust your butt. If you think that a magical fairy is going to make everything work out for you, than you’re horribly deceived. If you say, “God will bless me in His time,” then you’re already defeated. God has already given you the ability to produce! Perfect example. If you and your spouse want to have kids, God has already given you the ability to reproduce. He’s not going to put an infant into your wife’s womb. He only did that once with Mary. His Son Jesus was the only virgin birth to ever take place. The point here is that God has already given you the ability to create success for yourself and your family. God doesn’t hand over success to those who don’t work their butt off. If He started now, then He’d have to go back and apologize to Noah when He made him build the ark. He would have to apologize to Moses for going head to head against Pharoh. He would have to apologize to all the New Testament Saints who lost their lives for the sake of the Gospel. I’m not trying to go Bible on you, but so many authors I speak with have already been sucked into the mindset that it’s all up to whether God will bless them or not. God has already blessed you! Success is dependent upon you! The problem with saying God is in control of whether you are successful or not, is when you fail, you’ll be ready to blame God and say it wasn’t in His Will for you to be a success. I could quote scripture all day long to prove to you that God doesn’t bless laziness! God will never bless laziness!
Chances are, when you turn out to be a complete failure, it wasn’t because God didn’t bless you. It will be because you didn’t take enough action to get out of obscurity. Again, success requires you to get your head in the game and work you butt off. Are you getting the point yet?
Let me put this into perspective for you real quick. What did you do this week to promote your book or business? How many phone calls did you make? How many bookstores owners did you introduce yourself to this week? How many flyers did you distribute around your town this week? How many newspaper companies did you call or walk into this week and ask for an interview? How many radio stations did you call this week and ask for an interview? Did you call every Chamber of Commerce office in your state? Did you get in front of decision makers? How many articles did you write and distribute online? How many Church denominations did you speak with?
Chances are, when you turn out to be a massive success, it will be because you busted your freakin hump, and God blessed your labors. God has already said that He will give us the desires of our heart, but He will never bless laziness.
“Your success or failure will never be because of anyone, but you!”
