Stay true to yourself
“The absolute hardest part with publishing a book, for me, was to ask people to use their valuable time to read something that I have created. In other words: the overwhelming self-doubt and the feeling that what I have worked so hard on, and passionate with isn’t good enough for people to invest their time in.
You have to have an ongoing conversation with yourself where you stop thinking about how every individual person will “receive” the book and just focus on staying authentic to yourself and to your purpose with creating the book. No matter what – you have to find a way to be proud of the work and the passion you have put into the process, and humble for the fact that you have left a timeless part of yourself with the rest of the world.”
