What do you really want?
We tell ourselves that what we want is to write a book, but that’s not the whole truth. We also want the thing we believe a book will give us.
Validation (someone to read our book and praise us). A spot on a bestseller list. Fortune, fame and status.
Of course, we have no control over any of those things and if they don’t happen we’re crushed. The only thing we control is how well we write the book. When we focus on that, we win every time.
What is it you want, really?
