Friday, we released our first book, Break Your Invisible Chains.
Have you ever wondered how trainers manage to keep circus elephants from stampeding out of a big top tent? It's quite the same way we often train ourselves to live within our limiting beliefs. Use this active journaling guide to break your invisible chains, and own your own story to become the most powerful and authentic version of yourself. Through this book, you will engage in self-reflection and ask yourself a series of questions that will result in you having written your story.
The book is available to order now on Amazon. CLICK HERE TO ORDER
It wasn’t easy to write this book.
Jaron and I attempted to write a book about the power of personal storytelling three times before we finished this one. Every time, we would get momentum and write a couple of chapters, the book would get set aside due to other projects or life, and we’d set the manuscript aside. This is my first time writing a book, so I’ve come to understand that this is fairly normal for writers, but it can be discouraging. Over the years that it took to get to a finished book, I kept feeling like a failure because I wasn’t able to finish what I started. Even when we finally finished our first draft of our book, we ran into hurdles because we felt it wasn’t up to our personal standards so we rewrote the whole thing.
There is a lesson in this, I think. Creating something that you’re proud of isn’t easy. It doesn’t just “happen.” It takes work. It takes discipline. It takes late hours. It takes a willingness to look at your work critically and say “that wasn’t good enough. You can do better.” Ultimately, it makes the work better and it makes you better as a person. It helps you think more deeply and increase your belief in your ability to succeed in future difficult situations.
The book is out and we have a book launch event to prepare for, but for now, I just want to leave you with this thought:
Maybe you want to write a book, maybe you don’t. Maybe you want to finish that painting or start that garden or read War & Peace. Whatever it is that you want to do, that you’ve been telling yourself “one day I’ll get around to it,” just do it. There’s nothing you can’t achieve when you work at it hard and long enough. It may take you years and multiple false starts and revisions, as it did us, but you will finish it someday, and it will have all been worth it.
