When I was writing, Me, Myself, and Why? The Secrets to Navigating Change, I realized there were a lot of books that discussed the theory behind navigating change. Theory is valuable, but I knew my book had to be distinct if I wanted it to stand out to the audience who needed it the most.
Rather than focusing on theory, I decided to give my readers practical and implementable tools to navigate change. I also added thought-provoking questions so that the reader could ponder the questions and apply them to their own life making the information introspective rather than prescriptive.
Years later, I still receive thank you notes from my book clubs and leaders who use my book as a resource guide and leadership tool. Whenever they experience a particularly challenging life event, they return to the Self-Reflection Questions at the end of each chapter. It provides a framework to work through.
Since they also use the built-in tools, they apply the questions differently depending on what they are creating in life. So, instead of purchasing another self-help book, they end up purchasing a book with staying power.
If you’re writing a book that you’re incorporating into your business, it’s important that your book have staying power because you may want to use the content for years. Referencing specific world events can quickly outdate a book.
Your book also doesn’t need to be long to be effective. Writing a short, easy-to-read book that directs people to your website (a website which is easily updated and changed) can extend the shelf-life of your book.
If you’re inspired to create a strategy, write, self-publish, and launch your book to the best sellers list, I invite you to register today for our Best Seller Profit System Mentoring Program with our two-day class starting on Thursday-Friday, March 3-4, 2022.
