A Lifetime of Chances
Life is full of chances. In addition, there is a belief that you make choices and those choices create chances that change your life.
On August 19, 2021, my life goes from the Impossible to the Possible when my first book gets published; 31 Days to Purchasing and Renting Your First Investment Real Estate Property.
How to Know You’re an Author?
However, without having several folks acting as informal and formal coaches, above all I would never have found my voice through the written word.
When I started working with a formal writing coach she asked me a series of questions.
Importance of The Questions, Belief
The first question she asked me was, “Are you interested in working on how you think and feel about yourself as an author?”
I thought and replied, “What do you mean?”
She replied and observed, ” I have noticed what when you talk about yourself you are not confident you are an author and have no right calling yourself an author.”
I said to my writing coach, “Carla that’s because I’m not; in addition, that is why I was looking for a coach. I want to become an author.”
Carla replied, “Rick are you kidding me. You have written over ten magazine articles for not only one of Canada’s top investment real estate magazines, in addition, you have also written for one of North America’s top running magazines. Your blog is rich with over 150 investment real estate posts on your website including sharing your story on your book writing journey,” Announcing Your Book in the World, How to Raise Remarkable, Rich Words
Carla went on to say, “You have trained yourself to write and you are published, however, you still don’t see yourself as an author.”
“Similarly, you write in your own soon-to-be-published book about having an entrepreneurial mindset. It is obvious you believe that mindset is a big part of being an investment real estate investor.”
‘Why would you not see you need to shift your mindset and see yourself as an author?”
Carla also said she noticed in my book I talk about looking at oneself in the mirror. Whether I ask people to see themselves as a 1/2 marathoner, a triathlete, fitness performer, or an investment real estate investor. Mindset is critical.
Above all, she challenged me to use the same method I am advising my readers to use. Look in the mirror and see the author, I am inside and out.
