In the off market hours, I have been busting my butt to get the book to you by June 15th. I honestly never thought of myself becoming an author. This all began because of an idea that I had back in November of 2015. Then as I found my groove in trading and more people asked me to share I thought I really need to take actions to turn this idea into a tangible book.
Last May I began my interviews of fellow female traders from around the world. I had a loftly goal last May of being done by August. Hah!
Little did I know how much effort it would take to make this idea come to print. I thought I would easily transcribe the interviews myself and transform these interviews into a book. Wow was I wrong. I quickly found out that I am not a transcriptionist.
Where there is a will to make something happen you find a way. Fast forward to 8 months pregnant and dealing with mommy brain I found a way. That brings us to Decemeber and the beginning of the editing.
For some reason I thought transitioning my idea into book would be super easy. Well I surely estimated the work involved in sharing an idea. So my husband and I began the editing process. Again I thought I would have it done by the new year of 2017. It did not happen, but we perservered to keep it up.
As our second daughter’s birth was approaching in February, We kept up with the editing. She was born an 8 days early February 2, 2017 and the book was on the back burner for a couple weeks. Once she was a month old I knew it was time to get back to the book. Once she was 3 months old, the first copy of the manuscript was off to the editors with 3 rounds of personal editing already completed.
I thought, “Perfect, this should be done and in print in a couple weeks.” Again I misjudged the whole process. It would be 3 more rounds of editing and 3 rounds of formatting to end up at the point of releasing in ebook and print. This took another 3 months.
If I had honestly known or thought of all the work to get this done, I think I would have stopped before I started.
It is just like with learning to trade that if you keep the end goal in sight and put efforts towards it you will achieve that goal. It does not matter how big of a task at hand to reach your goal, when you break it down and put effort towards it each day you can and will accomplish your desired result.
Rememeber the mindset in achieiving any goal is crucial.
- Believe you can do it!
- Be kind to yourself in the process. It takes time to learn or do something new.
- Put energy towards your goal everyday.
- Praise yourself for the hard work that you have done. You are one step ahead of where you were yesterday.
- No matter how long it takes when you have reached your goal be proud. You have acheived something you only thought about doing before.
You can do anything you set your mind to accomplish. I had a thought of sharing a book about traders back in November 2015. It took alot longer than I believed it would to bring it to print. I never thought it would not happen. I just kept at it and slowly but surely after the thought in Nov 2015 and taking action beginnning May 2016 it is now done June 2017. The book will be available for sale IN ebook, paperback and hard cover June 15th.
