Tomorrow is the big day, the launch of my book on this little site called Amazon.com. I have been working on this book for what feels like eons and tomorrow it's finally available to the masses. I'm excited to help change lives and empower would-be entrepreneurs out there! I'm also scared to death.
And so while I tossed and turned last night, wrestling with anxiety and the what-if-no-one-buys-it-sweats I tried to remember:
I am more than my dream. I am more than a solopreneur. More than an author. I am not a loser or a failure if I don't reach the Amazon best seller list. I am more than my book. I am more than my dreams. Of course I want the book to do well. I want to be successful. I want to feel like a winner, but being a best seller doesn't make me a better person. We (I) glorify success so much, but what about who we're becoming? What about our insides? Am I who I want to be? Am I becoming who God wants me to be? Am I giving enough, loving enough, encouraging enough? Am I being the best mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend I can be?
From someone who is constantly pushing you to go for your dreams, and hustle towards success, let me just take a moment to remind you,
you are more than your dream.
If you fail or quit, you are still a loved, worthy human being. You are God's and he loves you. And I love you, too. Now, please go set an alarm on your phone to buy my kindle book tomorrow. 😉
Do you struggle with identity issues too? What gets to you like this book launch is getting to me?
