I have just signed a contract with a small educational publisher to write and publish a book in 2022. This has been a goal of mine for some time and when this opportunity arose it was something I was super keen on.
Enter the imposter syndrome thoughts and the constant self-talk that was focusing on the negative aspect... What if no one buys it? Do people really want to read about this topic? What if takes up more time than you thought? What if you get half way through it and you get stumped and never finish?
After a good amount of time I finally discovered the answers to all of those questions were exactly the same... What if you're wrong?!
Sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and ignore the negative self-talk. I have missed out on a lot of opportunities in the past because I haven't thought I was good enough or I wasn't brave enough to take the first step.
Well... that step has now been taken... so watch this space!!
