Here’s another another key to my signature system of writing and publishing a book this year called Signature Book Camp
It is a huge key to creating a lead-magnet and client attracting book.
In fact, its seems to be so well hidden in plain sight that I call it ‘the best kept secret’
What is this secret? I’ll tell you in a minute. First, let me show you how powerful it is. I’m my first and best example of using a book to create the business and life I wanted.
Not long ago, I revised and published my original book in a long weekend.
Within a week or so of re-publishing the book, I put a sentence (news announcement) about my upcoming book in my email signature line and won placement of it as the gift book featured in a writer’s conference packet to nearly 300 conference registrants and a lucrative speaking engagement.
Yet none of this would have happened had I not implemented the one key thing I’m about to tell you about.
Here it is:
If you want your book to attract more clients or create multiple streams of income, you must give it a mission.
**You must start with the end result in mind.**
Do this correctly and it will catapult you into the dream life you want for yourself and family.
Unfortunately, many newbie authors don’t know to do this. So their plans falter before they even begin.
It is critical to identify your goals for the book BEFORE you begin writing it.
If you don’t, it’s like going on a long journey without a map and most importantly a destination.
So let me share with you three of five steps in the time-tested system I used so you, too, can create measurable book goals that instinctively inspire and motivate you to accomplish them.
Jumpstart A Book – Three Easy Steps
Step #1): Pinpoint Your Core Values
Your core values are the things that really matter most to you in your heart.
When you publish a book whose topic and content are aligned with your core values, you’ll automatically be more peaceful and happy while accomplishing it. Then when it’s done, you will experience the fulfillment of holding YOUR BOOK in your hands and sharing its message with your readers.
With all that said, you will naturally be more successful in your book journey.
Step #2): Write Your Vision
Draft a vision of the dream life and business which you want your book to catapult you into. This vision should in essence contain everything that matters deeply to you.
Here is a core question you can answer from Business Expert and BestSelling Author Brian Tracy.
Do This Exercise…
“If you had all the time, and all the money, and all the resources, and all the contacts, and everything you need, and you wanted to design your life and business perfectly, what would it look like five years from now?”
Step #3): Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals
Next, create goals for your book that are congruent with the core values and dream you just described.
Do this and you will naturally feel more inspired, motivated, and energized to ACT on your goals daily.
To speed up your progress, set S.M.A.R.T. goals — Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-based.
SMART criteria are commonly attributed to Peter Drucker’s management by objectives concept.
At any rate, setting your goals using the S.M.A.R.T. Goals formula creates a streamlined focus that connects with the powerful, cybernetic, goal-seeking-missile (heat-seeking-missile like) ability within each of us.
Now pair this with the steps I taught you in earlier trainings about setting intention goals.
For instance, you might say “I write just two pages a day of just rough draft copy – no editing for just 70 of the 100 days and my 140-page first draft is in my hands by (insert a date 100 days from now).”
And for those multiple money streams we’ve been talking about, you might say, “I write each book chapter so it can also be sold as a standalone $97 audio or video product and as a session in my $3,000 three-day seminar.”
