The stuff no one tells you

The stuff no one tells you.

It all sounds so good – i mean, the stuff they tell you – which sounds like streets of gold, and glorious shouting from the rooftops with the Queen’s royal trumpets wafting a siren’s song.

Try publishing a book and you’ll get pitched a long list of amazingly helpful products to help you promote your book. Things like creating a wonderful video book trailer.

Thing is, how are you going to get anyone to watch it besides your family and friends, even if it’s an amazing video?

Aha.

You desperately want to believe your book is special and that it will bring you the financial freedom and reputation you couldn’t catch in your corporate gig.

If only.

So you get sucked in with all the hype and dreamy possibilities.

Life is hard.

For everyone.

Even the ones that seem immune.

They are not.

They are just using all they have to fight the temptation to feel like a victim.
